The cheapest thing you can do to make all of your projects look and feel more expensive is to invest in your sound design.
Professional sound design elevates everything it touches and if you're fortunate enough to be working with a professional talent in this area, count your blessings.
But even (more my domain) “so-so” sound design can add a satisfying layer of premium polish to a project and it only takes a modicum of time and effort to achieve.
So, given the return on investment to be had, we should all do our best to improve our sound editing, design and mixing capabilities.
And while you can (probably) get a tremendous amount of good work done in your NLE of choice, using a dedicated tool for the job is a smart decision.
Enter the DAW.
But, if you're anything like me, you've not actually spent much time working in a dedicated Digital Audio Workstation (DAW), so the prospect might feel a little intimidating, or something best left to the professionals.
But never fear, for Cut/daily is here to help you do just that, and in this issue we'll take a close look at learning the basics of the most overlooked page in DaVinci Resolve; the Fairlight page.
