Description

SpeakUp’s streamlining and simplifying success is down to its core attribute: automatically and effectively handling ducking — a technique for allowing a narrator’s voice to be heard clearly and consistently when there is other audio happening at the same time, such as background music. In principal, it is simple (but in practice, not necessarily so). Say some music is to be used in either a voiceover or video project that will have a narrator, and that this music will play at the same time as when the narrator is speaking, then the voice should take over as the main audio while the music effectively takes a backseat — background music, in other words. When the narrator is not speaking, however, the music should then be both clear and present — the main thing to listen to, in other words. Which is exactly where SpeakUp comes into play... by bundling those two responsive, purpose-built plug-ins. Putting them into action is straightforward (though there can be several instances of SpeakUp Sensor and SpeakUp Performer inserted in a project simultaneously).

SpeakUp Sensor should be inserted at the end of the voice track effect chain, whereupon it analyses the track and switches the reduction/filtering process, offering just the right amount of adjustment via several straightforward controls. These include: Sensitivity, which sets the speech detection threshold value — by between -60 to 0 dB; Lookahead, which can be used to delay the original speech track — by between 0 to 300 ms — so that after rendering the project the ducked audio track appears to fade before the speech starts; Control Bus, which allows for more sophisticated scenarios via two independent control busses; and FORCE TALK, which allows the speaker to be heard immediately regardless of whether the Sensitivity threshold has been reached or not (so users can manually handle voiceovers by pushing the onscreen button). SpeakUp Sensor also allows for frequency analysis, actively sharing information with SpeakUp Performer so that filtering is customised in accordance with the speaking voice concerned.

Conversely, SpeakUp Performer should be inserted on the video/audio track, whereupon — when switched into SENSOR mode — it ‘listens’ to the information received from SpeakUp Sensor in order to reduce the volume and process frequency filtering. Fortunately, making manual adjustments is similarly straightforward, thanks to another suitable selection of creative controls: Ducking Amount, which defines the currently applied amount — 0 to 100% — of desired attenuation (representing the rate of required action to be done in SpeakUp Performer); Fade-out Time, which sets the transition time to between 0 to 100% of the Ducking Amount (affecting the speed of the fade-out process after speech is detected in the SpeakUp Sensor plug-in); Fade-in Time, which sets the transition time to between 100 to 0% of the Ducking Amount (affecting how long it takes the signal to return back to its original level); Hold Time (between 0 to 15000 ms after the last signal is sourced from any SpeakUp Sensor plug-in), which keeps the Ducking Amount value at 100%; Target Attenuation, which sets the target attenuation applied to the music track when the Ducking Amount is 100%; Speech Frequencies Attenuation, which sets the attenuation of speech filtering applied to the music track to enhance intelligibility of the voiceover — not so much reducing the music level, but rather reducing only the part of the spectrum where the speech should not be masked; and Control Bus, which sets SpeakUp Performer to ‘listen’ to SpeakUp Sensor on up to two independent control busses.

HIGHLIGHTS
Adjusting the volume of a spoken word in a video can be time-consuming. In Audified, we thought there could be much easier way to edit voice-overs. Just add music and SpeakUp.

  • Advanced voice detection 
  • Time-saving tool
  • Two independent control buses
  • Adjusting spectrum of music track to make speech clearly audible
  • Allows complex combinations of Sensor & Performer plug-ins
  • Cooperates with DAW automation

STORY BEHIND SPEAKUP
SpeakUp has emerged from the necessity to simplify the process of creating voiceovers and YouTube shows. SpeakUp plugin bundle does exactly that. Applying the SpeakUp Sensor plugin on the speech track and SpeakUp Performer on the music allows you to focus only on what is really important - your show. User friendly control allows you to adjust the plug-in behavior to suit you the best.

DO THEY HEAR WHAT YOU SAY?
Some video editors spend hours of their precious time by adjusting the volume perfectly. We kept them in mind. The responsive plugins assure the ideal blend of voice, background sounds and music.

SpeakUp was composed by professionals. For professionals.

MANUAL VOICE-OVER ADJUSTING
Voice-over projects takes a long time to prepare and it is not the most creative part of show production. And being radio-show-hosts is not easy while you have to master the multitasking skill to controll the music and advertisements while doing talk-show. Easy to use tool that covers the technicality while allowing you to focus on show itself is not available.

SPEAKUP DOES IT FOR YOU
SpeakUp, the unique tool that makes it all for you. So you can focus on the more important parts of your project.

SPEAKUP SENSOR
Just right amount of control.

  • Sensitivity - adjust the threshold of voice-over detection
  • Lookahead - tell the Sensor plugin how much to delay the speech so the music fades-out before the speech in the final render.
  • Control Bus - choose up to two independent control busses if you need sophisticated scenario.
  • Force Talk - push this button to be heard immediately no matter if you reach the Sensitivity threshold or not

SENSOR MODE
The Performer is fully controlled by Sensors. It can't be easier.

  • Ducking Amount - defines the currently applied amount (0-100%) of desired attenuation
  • Fade-out Time - transition time between 0 % and 100 % Ducking Amount
  • Fade-in Time - transition time between 100 % and 0 % Ducking Amount
  • Hold Time - keep the Ducking Amount value at 100 % while there is no speech
  • Target Attenuation - set the target attenuation applied on music track
  • Speech Frequencies Attenuation - set the attenuation of speech filter applied on your music track to enhance intelligibility of the voice-over
  • Control Bus - set the performer to listen to Sensor signals on up to two independent control busses

AUTOMATION MODE
Driven by your will - write Ducking Amount parameter automation curve directly to your DAW (in Sensor Mode), modify it or even redraw it from scratch. Then just let the SpeakUp Automation mode do its magic. Performer is only controlled by the Ducking Amount parameter value read from DAW, Sensor signals have no effect in this mode.

  • Ducking Amount - defines the currently applied amount (0-100%) of desired attenuation
  • Target Attenuation - set the target attenuation applied on music track
  • Speech Frequencies Attenuation - set the attenuation of speech filter applied on your music track to enhance intelligibility of the voice-over
