Additional Dialogue Replacement (ADR) is the process of re-recording audio in a quieter, more controlled setting. Often times, due to environmental issues such as nearby railroad noise, or flubbed up lines require re-recording of actor dialogue. ADR is usually done in a digital recording studio—even if the production is shot on film. The modern recording setup allows the engineer and talent to capture usable audio.
Although ADR seems like a magic wand for your production woes, it is not easy. For one thing having actors repeat their performances can yield tepid results. Especially if the actors don’t have anyone from the cast to contextualize their responses.
Arch Audio has provided such services for production companies such as Tyler Perry Studios.
If you've heard a Legacy Box commercial on the radio or Sirius XM over the past 4 years, it was likely recorded at Arch Audio. The sessions often include two talents performing a script. Thank you Legacy Box for returning to Arch Audio year after year!
