Apple Soundtrack Pro: Use Apple Soundtrack Pro Filters to Lower a Voice in Final Cut Pro Audio

Chapter: Audio

Topic: Effects

On a recent project, the script called for two different voices but we only had a budget for one VO artist. I used the Pitch Shifter II effect to alter the tone of the voice of our female VO artist, who read both parts, and created two distinct “”characters.”” Using the Pitch Shifter II filter, I took the part of the recorded audio that we wanted to be the second voice and lowered it by one musical half-tone, in much the same way you would change the pitch of a musical note to correct a pitch problem or change key. The result was a deeper, richer and older voice that sounded perfectly natural. Obviously, you can also tweak your VO in a much more unnatural way, which may be just what you?re after.
