Ever wonder how different voice actors recording their lines at separate times can manage to talk like they’re in the same room? Well, BioWare has it figured out – and they’ve shared their secrets in a sneak peek video, featuring audio lead Rob Blake and voiceover director Caroline Livingstone.
It’s likely very difficult to match the emotional intensity of someone who has already recorded their lines separately. BioWare’s secret comes from some technical assistance, allowing actors to listen to previously recorded lines and match the enthusiasm with something called Intensity Volume Matrix. This also allows the actors to understand how the writers would like the line to be read.
You can learn about the whole process and hear some brief dialog snippets in the video below. The introduction focuses on pre-order bonuses for the upcoming game, so you can skip to 2:14 for the content about voice recording.
