    Hi all-

    I'm helping with the audio post on an animation project that will be shown tomorrow, and I need to know how to tweak a sound file so that it sounds like the source is in the next room.

    The animation is set in a bedroom, and we would like to alter some television atmos to make it sound as though it is coming from downstairs. I have tried using the distortion tool in Soundtrack Pro, but this doesn't produce the desired effect.

    I'm a newbie to audio post (I'm more of a visual editor) so any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I'd play with the EQ on it (maybe cut the high end some) and definitely add some reverb—that way it sounds like it's being echoed and muffled slightly by the travel. Also reduce the volume a bit, so it sounds like it's farther away. That'd be my suggestion.

    I cut the high and low ends, added a fair bit of reverb, then upped the gain to make it slightly louder. Sounds great, so thank you good sir:D

    band pass filter
    set the freq to 2000
    set the Q to 1

    Thanks! That sounds fantastic, although I set it to 200 rather than 2000.

    I appreciate the help guys!
