by Aaft Performing Art Aaft- School of performing art

Gaining expertise and knowledge in different areas in the domain of music can be the stepping-stone of success for the legion of passionate aspirants to enter the emerging industry of music. Sound design is basically starts with recording on-location sound and ambient sounds. We can manipulate sounds using tools available in digital audio workstations (DAWs) such as Pro tools, Appleā€™s Logic Pro, Cubase, Nuendo, and Ableton Live. The sound of the environment has the ambient sound in which the scene takes place. One can learn advanced techniques at one of the top music academies in India.


And the music helps in adding emotion and meaning to the film. On location sound can be recorded like ambient sound, some sync sound effects and the dialogue. There is much more than sound of human speech. Sometimes audio like sync sound effects or ambience were not recorded on-location.

There are times when on-location recorded dialogues are unusable then it needs to be re-recorded later. This is called automated dialogue replacement or ADR, when dubbing artist or actor comes to re-record in a studio. These aspects of composing and producing music can be learned via varied music courses across India.

Sound design can establish a mood or a tone. You manipulate sound, layer multiple tracks, bring some sound further into the background, and enhance them to create an entire world. As good visuals are required in film making similarly good sound is even more important. This whole process can really be a fun and there is a need to learn the skills about audio levels, noise elimination, audio frequency and more.

We use audio interactive software like Wwise, FMOD for designing sounds of games. In order to create a sound effect, we can start with the source sounds we want to work with. Some sounds come from personal SFX libraries or field recordings. When we created a sound effect then we bounce that element out as .WAV file format. We can design the sounds using multiple plugins available in the DAWs (Digital Audio Workstations).

While choosing career option you can be a sound designer for films, video games, animated videos. One can enroll them at one of the finest schools of music across India for gaining skills and professional knowledge in this craft under academic excellence.
