Introduction: Mixing Sound in Fairlight (08:11)
High-quality sound makes the difference between amateur and professional productions. Learn how to record a voice-over, clean up background hums, and apply sound effects in this episode. The Fairlight page is divided into four sections: the interface, transport controls, toolbar, and timeline.
Viewing a Spotting List (07:25)
During a session, the director, producer, and sound editors will identify locations where sound effects, voice-overs, and music are needed. Kenchington demonstrates how to use markers to keep things organized. Spoken word tracks are often recorded in mono; sound can be edited much more precisely than video.
Aligning Audio Effects (03:21)
Kenchington demonstrates how to incorporate sound effects. Position the play-head directly over the start of the waveform and drag the clip to the location.
Recording Audio in a Timeline (05:32)
Kenchington demonstrates how to record and incorporate a voice-over. Mono is the preferred method for spoken word; ADR and Foley tracks are also possible in DaVinci Resolve. Patch the track with an input and hit "R."
Modifying Clip Attributes (11:18)
After a professional voice over is recorded, preview it and add to the timeline. Consider using headphones to discern the difference between two channels; audio is usually recorded using both a boom mic and a lavalier. Kenchington demonstrates how to incorporate a de-hummer and reverb plug-ins.
Organizing Tracks into Submixers (08:37)
Kenchington demonstrates how to organize clips into a dialogue, sound effect, and music busses. Set levels for each submix on the Fairlight page. Fader changes are applied to the entire group of sounds.
Setting Track Levels (00:38)
Ensure that your audio system is calibrated and your speakers are of good quality.
