Copy of Effects

I have imported a documentary, it sounds great,
how can I check and copy the effects of that audio to incorporate them into my voice recording?

Thanks a lot.

On a high quality voice recording, any effects should be “transparent”. That is, it should be impossible to tell that any effects have been used.

It is common for the following effects to be used for high quality voice recording:

  • Equalization. Rolling off low frequency rumble, and perhaps tweaking the “timbre” of the voice.
  • Compression / limiting, to even out the level (compress the dynamics)
  • Noise reduction. Very little noise reduction is required if the original recording is high quality, but just a little may be used to “polish” the recording.
  • Normalization / Amplification: to set the overall level.
