      I’ve been wondering about this for a while, and it has come to the point where I need to get an answer (I hope this is in the right forum)

      In most of my movies, I want to have phone conversations. That is, having someone say something holding a cellphone, and to hear a phone-like voice replying.
      I’ve seen this done by others, but I can’t figure out the best way to do it, does anybody have advice?

      I use Final Cut Express HD 3.5.

      Telephone lines (old analog POTS lines) will filter out all signals below ~240 Hz and above 3.2 kHz. To simulate a phone line, bandpass everything within those ranges. Shrink the bandpass to make it sound older.

      Sound programs like Audition and Sound Forge will let you do this.

      Thanks, I’ll be sure to try that!

      Hmm, does anyone know of any free audio techniques for this?

      I don’t have the express version of Final Cut but I’m sure it should still have audio filters. Check for Hi-Pass and Low-Pass filters in the effects browser, apply both to your audio and set the frequencies accordingly.

      Good luck!

      Audacity is free. Following the guidelines in this post will give you the telephone effect.

      When I tried to download it, it came with the ".exe" extension, meaning it doesn’t work with macs.
