Pre-dubbing is the process of mixing sound elements so that the final mix involves less work by creating stems of dialogue, music, and sound effects. In this event, Learning Center Lab Manager & Audio Engineer Sohta Tsuchiya discussed how to effectively use basic and advanced mixing tools such as volume, panning, equalization, dynamics processing, and spatial effects to enhance a scene in a motion picture using ProTools. Sohta showed us some of his tricks for mixing including submit tracks and plugin configuration. Techniques for applying effects to specific regions of audio along with using tools like iZotope RX to clean up pops, hiss and background noise were covered along with questions from the audience.
