Krarg army - High quality sound

From the Director's notes by Nick Pegg.

The Krarg voices in the completed version of Shada were electronically treated in post-production to give the creatures their gravelly tones. However, the actors who played the Krargs were still required to growl and roar in the studio to provide the raw material for these effects.

At the end of one of the recording days, our two Krarg actors were joined in the studio by other cast members and various production staff from BBCi and Big Finish. Once everyone was grouped around the microphones, I directed them through the various different Krarg effects that we required: some low growling, some enraged roaring, the 'Universal Mind' chant from the end of part five, and so on.

In the extras, you'll hear a couple of glimpses of the raw, untreated Krarg voices in the studio.

You've heard the Krargs growling one by one - now listen to how much noise can they make when they do it all together.
