How to create muffled-to-clear audio intro?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Occasionally, I'll hear a song on the radio where the audio slowly transitions from muffled ("other room" technique) to clear. This usually occurs in the intro of the song.

I guess one example I have is "Wish You Were Here" by Pink Floyd. The intro features a muffled stringed guitar, and then a clear one comes in after. But what I'm looking for is an intro that smoothly goes from muffled to clear.

An even better example is "Say So" by Doja Cat. This effect happens during the 8-second intro, and again at 3:45.

How do I create this effect? Thank you in advance.

+1 to automating a EQ or filter on the master buss. Another song that does this is The Way by Fastball. The intro has this lo fi and then even the first verse is a bit off. Song kicks in on 2nd verse, very cool and impossible for me to do it live!!

just adding....automating prefader send to eq or whatever works well to do "other room" effect. This way volume can be handled separately if to do "walking into other room" effect. Full control.....
