How to achieve a transition effect?
For an audio drama, I'm attempting a sort of surreal language transition effect:
Character A (who is our point of view) stands some distance away from three other characters. At this distance, these characters are heard speaking one language.
As A approaches these three characters, this first language fades out as a second language fades in to replace it (the same dialogue, but different languages). When A reaches the others, the first language is at 0% and the second is at 100%.
Thinking about this:
- The three characters are stationary but exist at different points in the stereo field. When Character A is still distant, the three others are nearer the center of the field, and as he gets closer they spread out. This has to match between both languages during the transition.
- The reverb for the two languages should be generated separately (reflections from the first language should not appear in the audio from the second).
I can probably figure this out but I'm wondering if there is an immediately obvious most-efficent, most-accurate way to do this to someone who is experienced with Ardour (and DAWs in general, as I am not that experienced)?
