What are the Components of Audio Post Production?
The sound designer is responsible for all of the sounds the audience hears. Sound design is the overarching sonic structure of the production, including music, effects, background audio, and mixing.

Music editing involves editing or overseeing the synchronization of all musical elements with the movement on the screen. This also means measuring timings to assist the music composer in locating points in the film where the music will highlight the scenes.
We can hear sound effects in every video medium. Whether it’s a barking dog, a car door slamming shut, or a space battle, these are all sound effects. This even includes background sounds that may not always be apparent as you are taking in a film, but play a critical role in creating the film’s atmosphere and tone. Many of these effects are created with Foley…
Named after the father of sound effects, Jack Foley, these everyday sounds make the motion in the picture come to life. The light scrapes of footsteps in the distance, the persistent drip of a leaky faucet, the crack of a well-landed punch, and creepy creaking floorboards are all examples of Foley effects.
ADR stands for automated dialogue replacement and is also known as looping, dubbing, and post-synch. This is when actors re-record their lines after filming. Its purpose is to improve their clarity, remove background noise or sounds from the environment, change tone or intonation so it better conveys the mood of the scene or character, or change the dialogue.

Sound mixing unites and balances all of the sonic elements of a film. The sound mixer makes sure the dialogue/ADR/voiceover, sound effects, and music fit together to create a soundscape that complements the film and immerses the audience in the experience.
Let Big Ears Audio make your next television, film, or video production stand out from the crowd.
