What Does an Audio Editor Do?

A professional audio editor undertakes audio post-production. The audio editor is responsible for creating the soundtrack that accompanies the picture. An audio editor’s job involves many tasks and goes through an intricate process for each film they work on.

Dialogue Editing and Automated Dialogue Replacement – These could include production dialogue editing, in which the audio editor checks that the audio dialogue track matches with the picture. It might also involve automated dialogue replacement, which allows actors to rerecord lines or do voice-over narrations. The audio editor checks that the new dialogue syncs properly.

Sound Effects and Music – Audio editors are also responsible for sound effects design and editing, adding extra sounds to create the right ambiance for a film. Another responsibility is foley mixing and editing, which are background sounds from everyday life, like footsteps, clothes rustling, or handling objects. Audio editors also take charge of incorporating the music composition and editing, should your film require it.

Mixing – Finally, the audio editor puts all these elements together in the final stage of audio post-production – mixing. Here they ensure that all of the audio components fit, producing the highest quality of film possible. 

What Are Three Types of Audio Editing Techniques?

Professional audio editors employ different techniques to achieve the production value they’re after. Three methods we often use at CoolBox are adjusting gain, smoothing room tone, and adding crossfades.
