Veteran ADR Mixer Doc Kane of Walt Disney Studios Explains "Looping" (i.e. Process of Re-recording Dialog) | Soundworks Collection

Veteran ADR Mixer Doc Kane of Walt Disney Studios Explains "Looping" (i.e. Process of Re-recording Dialog)  | Soundworks Collection | Cartoons for Kids | Scoop.it
"What has three letters, many aliases and is of major significance to the sound community? You guessed it: ADR aka Automated Dialog Replacement aka Additional Dialog Recording aka Dubbing aka Looping. All of these monikers are understood as the process of re-recording dialog that cannot be salvaged from a production. To make one thing clear, there is nothing automated about it. ADR is an art. And here to tell us more about the art is an artist whose name also has only three letters and many aliases but nonetheless has made a significant impact on the sound community. His name is Doc Kane but most just call him Doc. With over 300 projects under his belt and a slew of awards and nominations, including four Academy Award nominations, Doc has one of the longest and most impressive resumes in the sound business."
