Frequency Fight Club
Can I download stock music from your site that won't fight my VO? The male voice-over talent was awesome, but his voice takes up a massive frequency range. - Phil, NY
We totally relate. Hand to God, I once worked with a relative of Isaac Hayes with who voice was so low you could actually hear the squeak of his adenoids rubbing together if you listened carefully to the speakers. Ew.
The sheer genius behind the CDs in our Blue Fuse Undertones & Drum n Bass sub-series is that these high-energy tracks shy away from musical instruments that dominate the 1kHz-2kHz frequency range (to which our ears are most sensitive). This leaves plenty of sonic room for your VO and still provides music royalty free "sizzle" in the outer frequency ranges.
