Production Help

Recommended Posts

I want to work on some producing. I have downloaded a trial of Adobe Audition as I used it a long time ago.

 

What are some cool tips/tricks that you have used?

What can you offer me for assistance? I would really like to learn! Are there tutorials out there?

What software do you use/recommend?

Here are a few things which might help. Mike Russell has produced some great videos on Youtube see http://www.youtube.com/user/musicradiocreative#p/u/8/JOfL_75OqpY It will give you some great ideas for production and Mike uses Adobe Audition in all his videos. He covers compression, stutter and so on. I use Adobe Audition 3.0 which is great for vo production and Mike on one of his vids on Youtube reviews the new Audition programme AA CS5.5 it may be worth considering the new version if you are going to purchase. Hope this helps. Mark

Hi Marc,

Before you start to make some "sighseeing" with your AA ... be sure to have a library with some nice sound effects, beds etc

Otherwise you can't do a lot of things

Download some DRY reads from the forum, open them into your WAVE window and open your "effects" tab ... choose an effect and play around ... if you don't like an effect / result don't forget to click "undo"

The best way of learning is to do it yourself ...

Remember that CE/AA recognize other plugins from other software - such as SoundForge (Sony) ... To insert these into your effects rack ... click "effects" > "refresh effects list" (All plugins at your pc gonna be loaded automatic)

 

At the moment you achieved a right result you can add that entire file into your production window (rightclick on the WAVE by using the setting "Insert in Multitrack" ... that gonna appear into your second window (multitrack)

Each track has its own settings ... you can add EQ, you can change the volume, mono to stereo etc etc

To a regular DRY voice over its possible to add to your track channel - example volume + 2, and EQ High + 2,1

Now compair that VO file to the musicbed you are willing to insert ...

set the volume (rightclick into the track zone) higher or lower ...

If you have any SFX elements, cut the original VO and fix the SFX element in between two VO parts ...

Keep in mind that you are able to "add" your SFX right to a beat (this gives a better general effect to the listener)

 

You are able to cut and paste anything possible in the way you want

and if you have some knowledge aka feeling to music ... you can make (cut and paste) your own musicbeds

That way your musicbed gonna "end" at anytime into the right way

 

so far this small AA course :)

Hello Marc,

 

Attached you'll find your file with an edit made by Me

Is it better ? or worser ?

That ain't the subject ...

 

One thing I have to say ...

I deleted that "beep" sound in front of "today"

Sorry for the expression ... but I hate those beep sounds into the middle of a file

Similar beep sounds "can" be used if the editor makes a watermarked file, or can be used to announce the break between 2 files ... for example into a demo etc

 

But ... I'm positive ... you are on the right track ...

 

Open your file as WAVE and mine and see the differences

- You gonna notice that the voice region has been uplifted

- The start of the file has a supplement SFX element

- The "beep" sound has been replaced by a second SFX element

- The "drone" bed who is used got an effect at the end (effect = a flanger + turntable fails)

 

Keep on sharing ... We like it :rolleyes:
