Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Sculpting sound with Chorus and Guitar Suite, part of Sound Design for Motion Graphics.
a simple recording I made with a handheld recorder … to create a nice motion graphics type sound effect. … We'll go over here and listen to this recording … called plastic sheet.wav. … It's literally what it is, I waved a plastic sheet … in front of a handheld microphone. … It sounds like this. … (plastic sheet whooshing) … I'm going to pick one of these sounds to work from. … (plastic sheet whooshing) … Okay, I like that one. … I'll just make selection right around the one spike I like … and I can zoom in super close … just to make my selection nice and tight, … can grab the outside edge and pull it in. … (plastic sheet whooshing) … Okay, so once we have a selection, we can crop it. … We can do that by going up to Edit, Crop, or cmd+t, … and it would also be ctrl+t for Windows users. … Once I crop it, it just cuts away everything else … and I'm left with just that one sound. … (plastic sheet whooshing) … Now, I'm hearing just a little bit of click … at the beginning there, so I'm actually go ahead …
This course is based on a 30-second graphics project, which is used to demonstrate concepts ranging from sound selection and spotting to sound creation and manipulation. Along the way, author Scott Hirsch provides an in-depth look at Audition's Multitrack and Waveform Editors, as well as the process of round-tripping a project to Premiere Pro. Plus, he'll show how to create your own riveting sound effects from scratch and start building a library you can use for future projects.
