Hire Audio Editor

Audio editing is the process of altering a piece of audio by changing its length, speed and volume or by creating additional versions such as loops. A professional who undertakes audio editing using a computer and audio editing software is known as an audio editor.

What Audio Editors Do?

Typically, an audio editor removes any unwanted interference from the audio. This would include removing breaths, coughs, a ringing of the phone or repeated dialogues. The audio editor will also add the music intro or outro. They may stretch or shorten an audio clip, add sound effects and remove transient noises. They also splice together the audio clip recorded at different settings and may loop, slice and edit beats. An audio editor edits audio clips to fit timing restrictions while maintaining context and continuity. They also convert the audio files into different formats like MP3, Wave and iTunes.

An audio editor also undertakes audio mixing – the process of combining multiple sounds into one or more channels. An audio editor works on a couple of software programs such as Audacity, Reaper and Sound Forge. An audio editor also specialize in specific software and become an expert such as a Sound Forge Expert or an Audacity expert.

Some audio editors also provide audio post-production services such as sound design, sound effects, Foley, ADR and sound editing. These audio editors typically work independently and can be found on Guru – one of the best websites to hire freelancers and get freelance jobs online.
