Freebie Friday: Audio Extravaganza, Part 3: Distance plug-ins for Sound Design
Today our freebies are focusing on plug-ins that take care of a specific, creating the illusion of dialog, sound effects, or music to sound like it is far away, or perhaps inside a building or car. This is more than just volume control and is useful for anyone creating audio for film or video and will give your sound design a more realistic depth.
Distance is free utility tool that is AU and Mac and PC VST, created to “mimic through-air high-frequency attenuation”.
Another freebie that does something similar is Proximity, a tool created by Tokyo Dawn Labs and Vladg Sound, and it's VST and AU. “The plug-in is an easy to use distance “pan-pot” based on several psycho-acoustic models.” This gives users the ability to manipulate the “depth” of the sound source.
