Editing Audio the easy way

June 25, 2011

what if you could treat an audio file the same way you could treat a photoshop file?


Spectral Layers which at the moment is in Alpha Stage 2 promises just that. The software has the ability to use multiple layers, work with multi-channel audio as well as surround sound, and extract individual voices, instruments, or any other noises.

Millions of people have been drawn to this footage which shows a shadowy figure walk across the hallway in Neverland during the filming of Larry King live. Full screen and speakers up to get the best out of this version which reveals a new audible piece of evidence:

Rest in peace MJ.

UN Voices – Image recognition to Mobile Audio

September 3, 2008

Although this is about 4 months old I thought this campaign was worth blogging because it is by far the best digital led campaign I’ve seen by a traditional agency – in this case Saatchi & Saatchi. A lot of people in adland obviously did not ‘get it’ – questions around why would someone bother to take a photo are easy to find, but we would argue that putting a measurable element in an Outdoor is gutsy and that the campaign was a great conversations starter packed with emotion – which is what digital is all about.

The Outdoor ads.

How it worked: Take a photo (outdoor billboard) with your phone and the audio story is sent for you to listen to. The website is also very well constructed even though the UG comments feature deserved to be more prominent.

Whilst Saatchis did claim at launch that this was new technology, we would argue this was not true. Companies such as Mobot (here) have been offering these services for several years and they have been used by companies such as Ministry of Sound and MX magazine in campaigns. We’ll forgive Saatchi’s on this occasion because this is a beautiful campaign.
