We kick things off this month with another Editor’s Choice Award winner on track 1. Domestic Violence Awareness is highlighted this time of year in both Canada and the US. Creating imaging and PSAs for this subject can be challenging. We often hear material with victims recounting their abuse, which is not easy to hear, but actually hearing the abuse is even more difficult to take in. Matthys Pischke submitted a PSA that carefully but strongly simulates what domestic violence can sound like. Not comfortable to hear, but it certainly raises the “awareness” of this issue.

Track 2 is a client-voiced spot Ryan Spooner sent in along with his response to this month’s Q It Up question on client-voiced commercials. You’ll find Ryan’s comments on page 7. Track 3 is the audio Dave Foxx references in his Production 512 column this month. Commercials are on tracks 4-12, and promos are on tracks 13-16. We wrap it up with some sample recordings Don Elliot did on the Tascam DR-100mkIII he reviewed in the month’s Test Drive on page 13.

Log in to check out this month’s audio. Thanks to all for your submissions for this month’s Soundstage! Deadline for the January Soundstage is Wednesday, December 21st! Have a great Christmas and a Happy New Year!
