What is ADR?
ADR, also known as Automated Dialogue Replacement or looping, is a process whereby the performer re-records his dialogue in synchronization with the visual. ADR is often confused with the term, Dubbing, which means replacing native dialogues into a different language.
Does your production sound have a really loud background noise, which affects the dialogue and sound editing process? Or is it all too late to realise your actor fluffed up a word in a "perfect take", when you are in the midst of post-production? ADR will solve all these problems, ensuring the best audio and performance quality, all done in a controlled studio environment.
Myth and Phobia of ADR
Many filmmakers and directors have phobia of doing ADR, simply because they had bad experiences with it. For example, performances are not on par with what they had recorded on set; ADR sounded too “studio-like”, or the fact that it just doesn’t sound right and natural.
Using equipments that are widely used in the production field will ensure the audio quality is able to match with the production sound. The right techniques and knowledge, combined with the experiences from working with various film directors and actors, will guarantee the recording to be perfect.

“After 15 years in the TV/Film business, I believe ADR is one of the most challenging parts of post. I vouch fully that the guys at Home Studio, understand the finer points of ADR to get solid performances with air tight sync. They are the go to guys when you need to do any ADR or full dubbing work.”

“It’s great doing ADR with Jesper because he has a way of making the actors feel comfortable and when they are at ease, they become more confident. I really appreciate this as a director because the whole ADR session becomes a breeze.”

“ADR is one of the most unwanted options in filmmaking as we can never replicate the same sound quality that is recorded live. However, Home Studio has the required technical skills and awareness to go into details in resolving such tricky scenarios; and the unique personal touches of the sound engineers also allow the talent to slip back into character comfortably. Definitely one of the go-to post audio houses in the region.”
Wang Guoshen, Director
