Sound Editing

BACK

Sound Editing is the process of selecting and assembling sounds for a motion picture, TV program, video commercial, or a video game. Whether these sounds were captured by recordings or synthetically created by synthesizers and samplers, (or any other type of sound generators) a sound editor gathers the right elements of sound and manipulates them as needed. Also, a sound editor has access to sound libraries provided by the sound supervisor to accomplish his or her job.
