    What audio plug-ins are available in the program or elsewhere for free that I could use to manipulate my recorded audio to make two sets of dialogue sound like

    1. A pilot talking over the intercom on a commercial airplane
    and
    2. A PA Announcer that one would hear over the speaker’s in any airport terminal?

    For reference, here are three links that capture the sound of the pilot that I’m looking for:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pB901AmTV8U (starts at 1:59)

    And here are some links that capture the sound I’m looking for for the PA Announcer:

    Hi Seth

    Try the Equalizer effect in the Freeware Dark Audacity, for the pilot effect, start by cutting all the frequencies below 200 Hz and the ones above 3000 Hz. From there, adjust to your liking.

    For the airport announcement, use the reverb effect as illustrated and adjust to your liking.

    Cheers!

    Hi Seth,

    I agree with Francolis, an equalizer is your best bet. However, I’m sure you have your reasons to make them sound “alike”, my observation to you is that the environment of the two tracks is completely different – female vs male, tiny room (on board the aircraft) vs a huge room at the airport, two different voice accents, etc. If, when you recorded these announcements, you also recorded some background ambiance sounds, what I would do is record your own announcements on top of the existing background.

    Seth, two simple ways. 1) Download the links you provided and put them on your timeline, removing only the video portion, leaving the sound track. 2) Use Audacity to record the links you provided and record “what you hear.” Go to the Audacity website to the tutorial on how easy this scenario is to accomplish.

    You can get a bunch of different BG sound and noise at: https://freesound.org/search/?q=static.

    Be carefull not to make your BG to loud. It’s a common mistake.

    Cheers !
