91: Editing Like a Boss

91: Editing Like a Boss

OK. It’s not the most sexy part of producing music but it’s one of the most important. There’s an amazing thing that happens when you’ve finished editing the tracks in a song and hit play for the first time: it starts to sound like a SONG. Even before compression, before EQ, before that sexy saturation trick you learned from Johnny Lots-o-Grammys, things will start to sound GOOD after some proper editing. And this feels amazing and helps you build momentum going into a mix. 

On this episode, you will learn: 

  • Why editing is as ethical as putting on a nice outfit for a job interview
  • Why editing, while tedious, can actually be a huge time saver
  • The different types of edits pretty much every production can use
  • The difference between slip editing and time-warp editing (hint: both are incredibly useful)
  • Different types of cross-fades and how to use them effectively 
  • Tips for editing vocals – like what to do about all those harsh s sounds piling up. 
  • How to get rid of the little rip or warble that happens sometimes when two clips are overlapping
  • How to use “masking” to determine where to put edit points. 
  • And more!
