Working with telephone calls can be a little tricky – especially if you want to make sure that your podcast guest sounds as good as possible and also make sure that what they’re saying is as clear as possible.

In this short tutorial, I’ll show you how I would process a telephone call using nothing but the stock plugins in Hindenburg.

Overview of processing a telephone call:

  1. Reduce the volume of the higher frequencies to almost nothing
  2. Add a little intelligibility by increasing the volume of frequencies at around 2,000 Hz
  3. Improve intelligibility by reducing some of the frequencies starting at about 500 Hz and below
  4. Reduce the volume of the lower frequencies to almost nothing

Of course, you’ll still need to use your ears.

As you watch, you can pay attention to where I typically start each frequency band and how I use my ears to help me determine whether I’ve made the right choice.
