Quick Run-Through of How to Post-Produce in GarageBand
Introduction to GarageBand Course
Why do I use GarageBand? And why did I create this course?
Cut-down of Raw Sound-files
A brief introduction to cutting down longer raw files to shorter quality voice overs ready for next round of editing. We remove breathing, learn about timing and look into processes around faster sound work.
Tweaking timing in a Fine Cut
In this lesson, we are refining the raw cut by listening back to the track once again. This time around, we are listening for the context; is the timing right between the sentences, which parts belong closer together, and how do we leave enough room for the animations that will follow in the video production afterwards.
Noise-reduction using Automation
Now we are getting down into the details of noise reduction, as we start using Automation for controlling the volume levels throughout or voice-over. We look into how to clean up endings and beginnings of individual sound bites, how to lower the volume on breathing sounds, and how to round of your track nicely with a fade-out to complete silence.
Short Note on Equalizer and Compression
Here's a brief touch-down on how to master your voice-over in GarageBand. We are running through the basics of equalization, compression and how to go deeper into more advanced settings, if that's what you want to do. I've also included some presets for you to download, if you just want to get started with a basic configuration - ready to go.
Exporting your Finished Voice-Over
You've created a great sounding voice-over, and now it's time for exporting it out of GarageBand. There are a few basic settings to know before hitting that Export button, and in this lesson, we'll cover the most import ones.
