Spoken-word specialist: Audified SpeakUp

Posted on: Wednesday 20th of June 2018

Audified_SpeakUp1_resolutionmagAudified have bundled two purpose-built plug-ins, SpeakUp Sensor (for working with voice tracks) and SpeakUp Performer (for working with video/audio tracks), to automatically and effectively handle ducking, such that the spoken word adjusts music volume with carefully controlled fading in and out, while also improving speech intelligibility as the background music analyses the speech spectra and attenuates any corresponding spectra within the music track to enable smooth blending of voiceover and music.

SpeakUp Sensoranalyses the track and switches the reduction/filtering process, with several straightforward controls. Sensitivity, which sets the speech detection threshold value between -60 to 0 dB; Lookahead, which can be used to delay the original speech track — by between 0-300ms — so that after rendering the project the ducked audio track appears to fade before the speech starts; Control Bus, which allows for more sophisticated scenarios via two independent control busses; and FORCE TALK, which allows the speaker to be heard immediately regardless of whether the threshold has been reached or not. SpeakUp is available to purchase at an introductory promo price of $99.00 until June 30, 2018 — rising to $139.00 thereafter.
