Ross's post-production workflow: (mixing, software, effects processing, editing, mastering, etc.)
  • Record in MixPre-3 as wave file on SD card and edit in Screenflow
  • Edit out any gaps, edit out the worst "ums" "and uhs" and occasionally a segment that detracts from the overall conversation
  • Boost softer or lower louder areas to make overall volume more consistent
  • Record into and outro
  • Add music tracks
  • Check volume levels again
  • Export final mix as m4a
