2018 Launches New Pro Audio Products and Reflections on Audio for Production
You know sometimes we make such a big deal out of cinematic production that it has been said we forget about the importance of audio. I don’t think that is true at all. If anything, we should spend a lot more time thinking these days about how the audio plays such a big part in the whole production process. Which mics are we going to use? What sound fx?

Introducing Dialogue Match: iZotope's Brand New Tool That is Revolutionizing Dialogue Editing and ADR Workflows
Dialogue Match is a Pro Tools AudioSuite tool intended for re-recording mixers who deliver the final sound mix for films and television programs. For decades, these mixers have had the tedious job of matching dialogue from lavalier, boom mics, and ADR in order to create a seamless and cohesive dialogue performance. This long and work-intensive process takes valuable time away from crafting the sound of a scene and producing a final mix. Using machine learning, Dialogue Match reduces this process to seconds, making it the first tool to automatically learn and match the reverberant character of dialogue recordings.

Q&A with Josh Apter, Creator of The Padcaster
PADCASTER PRODUCT TOUR from Manhattan Edit Workshop on Vimeo.Q: So, what exactly is The Padcaster? A: The Padcaster is a rugged iPad case turned mobile production studio that transforms your Apple tablet into an all-in-one moviemaking machine. This sturdy, customizable case lets videographers attach lights, mics and other filmmaking accessories and enhancements to the iPad. Paired with the Lenscaster, the combo takes the iPad from ordinary tablet to high-tech production device. Q: How did you come up with the idea for such a product? Was there an exact moment when the lightbulb went on and you thought of creating this device? A: When I saw that you could shoot HD video, edit it and upload it to almost anywhere (YouTube, Vimeo, CNN ireport, FTP) all on the iPad. It was faster than anything I’d ever seen and something literally clicked. It turned out to be a hernia, but while I was in surgery, I got the idea for the Padcaster. (OK, not that last part.)
