Supervising dialogue editor
(Chernobyl, Black Mirror, Darkest Hour)
“Undertone is now an essential in my dialogue editing toolbox – for creating clean fill, fill with movement in it, for continuing bg noises such as planes or car noise which is often hard to fill, for elongating screams…you name it. And it’s a must-have for creating DX sessions for M&E too. Strongly recommended!”
(Jojo Rabbit, The Tree of Life, X-Men: Days of Future Past)
“Ok so I absolutely love this plugin, one of my all time favourites. It is currently saving me huge amounts of time and anguish, I use it almost on every scene plus it is getting me out of some very tricky dx editing situations. It’s friggin genius/awesome!! I would be lost/grumpy without it. Many thanks guys.”
Sound Designer & Founder @ Unidentified Sound Object
“The grown up kids @ Audiokids have enclosed in a unique and friendly device two of my desert island DSP tools: granulation and convolution. Once you’ve started using Undertone, it’s addictive… primarily for the tiny but important tasks such as creating air fills for dialogue tracks. Watch out though: it’s a powerful instrument to create complex soundscapes and atmospheres in an intuitive, simple interface. Kudos to Davide, Fabrizio and Mattia!”
Dialogue Editor and Re-Recording Mixer
“Undertone is a must-have for dialogue editors, that’s it. It’s a tiny little tool, very easy to use and yet a game changer.
Creating believable room tones with just a bunch of frames of usable audio has always been a struggle for dialogue editors: not anymore. Now that Undertone is in my toolkit, I can’t live without it.”
