Overview

Whether you make narratives, documentaries, news shows, training videos, podcasts, games, or some other media, sound has a great impact on what people see, believe, and remember. When you dedicate attention to every element that makes up the whole soundtrack — dialogue, sound effects, and music — your story will hold more meaning for the audience, and you'll deliver your message in a more memorable way. Thankfully, putting together a better soundtrack is the easiest, fastest, and most effective way to make your production better. SOUNDTRACK SUCCESS will show you how to do it. It's a non-software-specific guide to the entire realm of audio post-production, with particular attention paid to fixing problems, sweetening sound, and pulling together a complete soundtrack. You'll learn how to use dialogue, voiceover, walla, backgrounds, sound effects, Foley, and music, and you'll discover how to record, edit, mix, master, and deliver high-quality and high-impact soundtracks. The companion DVD includes video tutorials and examples that further demonstrate the many concepts and techniques described in the book. This complete primer is your key to making soundtracks that soar.
