Square Cad #6 - Real Life CSI: Audio Forensics and Restoration
Arlo West (Creative Forensic Services)

Forensic audio and mastering utilize similar tools to polish audio, but the similarities end there.  Forensics and restoration specialists have a specific goal in mind, intelligibility, and will be use every technique at their disposal to achieve it.  Even though the intelligibility threshold sounds like an easy one to achieve it is actually a ton of work. 

Square Cad spoke with Arlo West , owner and operator of
Creative Forensic Services, about the ins and outs of forensics and restoration.  Arlo has worked on thousands of restoration projects, including the latest Mel Gibson freakout tapes, and shares his thoughts about restoration workflow, goals, and how his work differs from studio engineering.
