Speakerphone 2 by Audio Ease Review

Speakerphone 2 shapes any sound to become an exciting noise, locates sound into new places or creates the illusion that a sound or music is played through a device. The plugin has some age and is still updated by the developing company as you can see here.

Speakerphone 2  is for professionals that work on sound effects, sound design, and mixing; across all genres of television, game, ads, and film. Audio Ease did send a review copy with no strings attached.

Installation

Speakerphone 2 works on Mac OS X and Windows. I did review it in FL Studio and Cubase on a MAC. Speakerphone 2 requires an iLok key to register the license you receive after purchase. It runs on MAC and windows, see full systems requirements and supported DAWs here.

Speakerphone 2 is the perfect tool for sound designers who want to add realistic backgrounds and operating noises to their audio productions. With its Atmos-enabled sound engine, Speakerphone 2 can create realistic 3D audio environments that place the listener in the middle of the action.

Whether you need to add the sound of a church bells ringing in the distance or the roar of a crowd at a sporting event, Speakerphone 2 has the ability to transform any space into a new one.

Convolution IRs

Convolution can just as easily be used to recreate the real sound of guitar amps, hi-fi speakers, and even telephones. This is where Speakerphone comes in. Speakerphone enables us to play our sounds through convolution models of hundreds of speakers of various sizes and characteristics, and add details like guitar amp distortion, too.

By using convolution, we can make our sounds appear to come from any speaker we want, no matter how far away it is or how different it is from our own. And by adding in details like amp distortion, we can make our sounds even more realistic.

So if you’re looking for a way to make your sound more realistic, consider using convolution. It’s a powerful tool that can help you create the sound you’re looking for.

Why do you need Speakerphone 2? With this tool, you can replicate the vibe and sound of real-world devices like a telephone or speaker and locate the sound in a realistic environment. The main takeaway is the comprehensive support of devices that are emulated and where the plugin shines to create believable results.

The way we hear sound is constantly evolving. Thanks to technological advances, we can now experience sound in a more realistic and lifelike way than ever before. One of the latest innovations in this field is Speakerphone 2, which can replicate the vibe and sound of real-world devices like a telephone or speaker and locate the sound in a realistic environment.

The result is a more immersive and realistic soundscape that allows you to hear the world around you in a whole new way.

Concept Behind Cover

Radio speakers are great for adding music to any room, but they can also be used to create a more immersive experience.

By placing speakers around the room, you can create a surround sound effect that will make it feel as if you’re in the middle of the action. Telephones are another useful addition to any home, providing an easy way to stay connected with loved ones.

But more intriguing are the additions of various microphones and ‘Covers’. The microphones include both dynamic and condenser models and sound genuine to our ears, adding a subtle ‘realness’ to any sound played through them.

The ‘Covers’ are designed to protect the microphones from dust and damage, ensuring that they remain in pristine condition. These additions make it clear that RadioShack is serious about providing quality audio products.

Consider how difficult it would be to record a conversation over a bad GSM connection (GSM cell phone data compression, distortion, and delay), walkie-talkies, public phones, headsets, general phones, or cell phone with the option to add more unwanted sounds such as static and others.

Many gadgets are included, such as Answering Machines, Baby Phones, Guitar Amps, TVs from Sony and Philips, Radios, and more. Its major purpose is for TV and film audio post-production. With this tool, you may create any of that with ease.

Many vital features come with this tool, as you may guess already is it much more than the usual reverb plugin. Features like adding ambiances help to place sound into locations which are vital when doing sound design to picture or when you need to add emotion to a musical track.

A producer working to picture, trailer, and especially when working on Ads will benefit the most from Speakerphone 2 as their primary tool to create soundscapes where they belong according to the action on the screen.

As a German, I wished many of the shows (dubbed) I watched in the early years of German TV would have used this tool more to produce an experience I would have enjoyed more as the sound is key to any movie, more than the image itself.

For music producers and mix engineers, there are many AMPs included which you can use to distort or add vibe to an instrument track like a guitar.

User interface & Usability

The UI is not modern, the tool has some age and I would assume that a release today would come with a more modern interface. The old-school look is ok, and you get results that are the most crucial benefit even if the tool looks dated.

When you dive into the UI, you do see its beauty, as there are so many options to change for example setting up the room you know how the real estate was smartly used and the design starts to make sense.

It may not seem like a very appealing prospect, but if you connect the new Multi LFO to the Covers module, you can modify the cover’s ‘pitch’ in real-time, shifting the cover’s characteristics around. The sound design opportunities offered here are as endless as they are brilliant.

When it comes to sound design, the Cover module is truly unique. This powerful and versatile tool offers a whole new way of manipulating audio, allowing you to cover real-world sounds with a range of unusual covers.

Whether you are working with everyday sounds or special effects, this module gives your sounds a unique, muffled quality that sets them apart from the rest. So if you are looking for an innovative way to add an extra dimension to your audio creations, be sure to check out the Cover module and unleash your creativity!

Synthesizer sounds are some of the most intriguing and versatile sounds out there, ranging from light and airy to dark and menacing.
