Audio Editing – Backwards

When I record an audio I know that I’m going to have sections that need editing, needed a second or third take, or have a cough etc, in the audio. What I usually do is write down exactly where that section is, mark it on the script or possibly note the time code.

One tip I just learned is that if you made a notation that you needed to fix a section at 2 minutes, a long “ah” at 6 minutes and another throat sound at ten minutes, it’s much easier to work backwards in time.

If you try to edit the traditional way – time forward – then when you remove the section at 2 minutes, you’re next edit won’t be at exactly 6 minutes etc. If you work backwards in time you won’t have this problem.
