Room Tone

January 13, 2016, 06:42 AM

Typically in movie production, the sound mixer also records the sound of the location without any dialog. This recording is known as "room tone". The reason for doing this is so that the sound editors have the background sound that can be inserted to cover discontinuities in the dialog track, caused by the shift in background sound from a close-up to a wide shot, and vice versa, or when the dialog is replaced in post production with ADR.
