Join professional audio engineer Scott Hirsch, as he shows how to create an evocative sound mix for a film or video, built from basic audio collected during the shoot and transformed into a final mix using Pro Tools. This course shows audio engineers how to use their existing skills and optimize a Pro Tools session for projects with unique requirements. Scott shows how to record Foley and ADR audio; layer sound effects; perform corrections such as noise reduction and pitch shifting; mix for stereo and 5.1 surround sound; and how to format and deliver the finalized mix, whether destined for DVD, movie theater, broadcast, or the web.
