Editing Techniques

There was a great deal of editing to the effects that I captured. Generally, I’d spend one day recording, uusally a Monday, and then another day editing, usually Wednesday. Or vice versa depending on schedule and what I wanted to do for that day. The editing process was very detailed, and varied from effect to effect. Some sounds had very little editing, such as the Thunderstorm piece and water drip (aside from just some basic trimming for time). Trimming/cropping was probably the #1, as this sets the length of the effect, and removes unwanted material. After that, I tried to follow the same steps as I would for mixing music, using Trim and Pan first, EQ’ing using the 7-band on Pro-Tools, and then onto plug-ins. Reverb, Delays, Compression, Filters, Noise Reduction, Chorus’, Flangers, Pitch Shifting, Reversing/inverting, Fades………it all just depended on what effect I was working on as to what sounds were edited what way.  I also edited on multiple DAW’s, using both Pro-Tools and Adobe Audition. For simple effects, I like Audition since it has an easy interface and operates a bit quicker for simple tasks like adding reverb or just cut/copy. I used Pro-Tools when I wanted to get detailed with a sound, such as some of the Crouton crunches that I came up with. The 7-band EQ played a huge part in opening up some sounds, and then took off from there with plug-ins. I sometimes think I’m looney for spending 2 hours playing with and editing a sound that lasts all of 3 seconds.
