Last week I shared a simple train recording, and explained how I cut it in Pro Tools.
Of course, many of you have cut vehicles like this before for your own library. So, the focus was not as an editing or mastering tutorial.
Instead, I wanted to explore another idea: how envisioning your sound effects improves them. When you conceptualize every stage of field recording – from research to archiving – your recordings strengthen. Mastering your sound clips before you record them informs your technique and enhances your sound library. How?
I’ll conclude the series describing why I cut the train as I did. I’ll share ideas you can use in your own field recordings, and explain the benefit to mastering your tracks before you record them.
