Step 4

Adjust as necessary.⁣

That’s all there is to it! Now you can make it sound like they’re truly on the other line.

So what do these filters do exactly?

The Highpass effect removes frequencies below the specified Cutoff frequency. Therefore, giving you a more high pitched tinny sound.

The Lowpass effect removes frequencies above the specified Cutoff frequency giving you a more muffled sound.
