Welcome to AnEFX's virtual studio tour. Our state-of-the-art facility provides the highest quality sound services to projects throughout the Los Angeles area.
A natural sound is the audio taken from the actual source. Sometimes natural sound does not meet audience expectations because they are disappointed by the sound of reality and influenced by sound ideology.
Our sound designers help in the planning stages of film and television shows. We work with the director and post producer to shape the overall soundtrack of the film/show to manipulate the audio elements and create a desired mood.
The audio recorded on set needs to be properly mixed by a dialogue editor. At AnEFX, locating the proper take from the recorded audio, checking sync and eliminating extraneous noise so that the mixer can clean the dialogue is all crucial.
Foley supplies the film with subtle and everyday sounds that the microphone often misses. These background noises refer to anything from footsteps to doors closing to splashing in the pool that makes the film/show seem realistic.
ADR is the process of recording and replacing voices after the original shooting sequence. If the film is shot on a sound stage, the dialogue recorded will probably be used in the final film because there is usually no background influence.
