It sounds like a good process to me. If it works for you, I don't see anything wrong with it. It's a lot like what I do, except I would never read through my books backwards. I know many teachers who recommend proof reading backwards, but I personally think it's the biggest waste of time. I'd rather see how the sentences flow together in paragraphs, rather than each individual sentence on it's own. But it's all a matter of preference, I'm sure it might work for some people. If you think it'll work for you, you ought to try it.
I also recommend reading things out loud. To me, that's the easiest way to see if something doesn't flow right.
Is an Alienware M14x laptop good for sound recording/editing?
What you want to do is look for a laptop with a dedicated sound card. You will have to specifically look for that. Not ones with ones built into to the motherboard. I think only 17 inch + Alienwares have that.
I suggest looking at other custom manufacturers like
http://www.origincpc.com <--- after alienware became owned by dell. The original owners made origin
http://www.falcon-nw.com the advantage of these companies they make true custom pc's if they don' thave the part you can ask either one of them and they will put it in for you. Talk to a custom service rep during working hours, to find whats best for you.
Or if you want something less costly try
Very few generic brands (Dell, Hp, Sony, Acer, Asus) Provide a dedicated sound cart in their laptops, a few Special models may contain, check the technical specifications to find out
Where to buy or download for free video and sound editing software?
obviously the previous 3 answers were full of information on how to do things that was not part of your question,
try avidemux for your video, free and easy, i use it for making home videos out of various clips i have taken with my video camera, it has an option to remove audio and add audio in mp3, wav and ac3 (dolby),
it also does format and container transcoding
for your audio, you can't go wrong with audacity, also free, but not as easy,
you can record your own sounds, change the format - in fact you will have to get the program, just to many to list
hope these were more in line with what you asked
Is there such a sound editing program that removes voices from songs?
Be aware that you'll never find a software that can do it entirely. For the most part audacity works but a lot of the reverb and echos are still going to be there, but the main vocal track will be gone for sure.
You can use:
-Mixcraft 4 [ Recommend it! One of the best ]
-Sound Forge Pro 10
-and even MORE! I have experience with this because I produce my own music
Here's a link to a few programs you can find for free or download some demos:
They are organized by category, choose the one you are looking for and boom! all the programs that works with what you are just looking for.
The ones I mentioned are the one's I use ..
Hope it helps you!
Oh.. and if you can't find any in the link you can google for the ones I mentioned!
Ok now I'm done
In Rachel Getting Married, director Jonathan Demme opts for a very naturalistic style, from the hand-held cinematography to the overlapping, "real"-sounding dialogue. It's similar to classic Robert Altman films, or the way Michael Mann (Heat, Public Enemies) mixes dialogue softly so it will strongly contrast with the thunderous gunfire.
I saw The Kids Are All Right in theatres and on Blu-ray, and I had no problem understanding any of the dialogue. Very cleanly recorded and well-prioritized in the mix, in my opinion. Don't know where you're coming from there.
You should always consider how -you- are watching the movie, too. Could it be a problem with the sound system? A lot of modern multiplexes have very lackluster projection and sound standards.
What's the difference between sound mixing and sound editing in movies?
Sound editing is cutting the clips together in a way that you need to make the story or song or whatever work. It's putting them in an order in which they make sense or sound good.
Sound mixing is making sure the audio is equalized and even volumes throughout, adding effects, etc. This is the stuff you need to go back in and do yourself to make the audio sound better than it does after you edit it.

What is the difference between the oscars for sound editing and sound mixing?
WALL-E is an excellent example of sound mixing, as that movie is nothing but sounds. We are also talking about those ambient sound sin the background to add a sense of "depth"
Sound editing is making sure that the sounds follow from scene to scene and are true to what we think the sounds should be

Is there a job that consists of using Sony Vegas, Final Cut Pro... and other video/sound..editing softwares?
I'd prefer using Sony Vegas, it's easy to use. Or you may try this video editor. I always use it to make and edit video for uploading to youtube. it's cool. And here is a guide regarding how to use it
Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question.
A sound editing program for mac that lets you edit sound from a movie clip.?
I use QuickTime Pro to extract audio from movie files but there are some shareware options also, links below. The first one claims to work with any file that QuickTime can play. The second one says it works with "QuickTime movies" so that could be the same thing or it could be only .mov files. Try it and see.
What's a good starter sound/music editing software?
Garage Band - Mac only - multi-track - uses pre-recorded music clips (loops) to create tracks..
Audacity - Mac or Windows - multi-track audio recording and editing program - does not use loops.
Lame if needed to encode to mp3:
How to install Lame:
There's plenty of help around for Audacity - audio engineering is not a one click does all operation.
There's a learning curve even with the simplest apps.
The YouTube link's a good one - can't say the same for some of the others from a presentation point of view. Still - that's my opinion.
Couple of free GB type Windows apps:
More free, compatible loops:
What's the difference between sound mixing and sound editing?
Mixing is something producers do to achieve a certain "sound" or "tone" depending on what the musical piece is being used for. Sound editing is done to add and omit samples, sounds, instrumentation etc. If something needs to be added or taken out to make the track correct it is done so.
What is a good sound editing software to record and cancel dialogue?
If the background noise/sounds are between the content you want to keep they can be edited out. If they occur at the same time then nothing can be done. A constant low level noise such as from a fan or air conditioner can be removed or reduced but not without some effect on the required content.
An often asked question on this site is how to remove a particular instrument from a music recording and the only answer is - you can't unless you have the original multi-track studio recording where each instrument is recorded on a separate track.
The same applies to your scenario - once mixed to a single recording the individual instruments/noises cannot be separated.
You don't say and it makes no difference what you are recording it can't be done regardless of the program or how much you pay for it.
Virtually all the dialog on a location movie shoot is re-recorded in the studio and dubbed in for this reason. Any other noise at the location cannot be removed.
What software can a 3d artist use for video-sound editing?
I'd like to recommend AVS Video Editor to you, I always use it to edit video and make funny video for uploading to Youtube, it's easy to use and the quality is awesome, you can crop, cut, join, edit video with it easily. It also embeds many special effects, you can even add text to video or add background music, that's pretty cool. It worth a try
Hope it helps. Contact me if you have any other question
I have no sound when playing midi in audio editing software?
MIDI by itself is just information and not sound. Windows Media Player essentially has a built-in software instrument that plays the sounds from your MIDI file. When you load it into one of the higher-end programs, you will normally have to load an instrument to make sound. The instrument will read the MIDI information and turn it into sound, but just importing a MIDI file into most recording software won't do anything aside from place the notes on a MIDI grid or piano roll.
Go up to Insert>Soft Synths> (pick an instrument).
If the Soft Synth Options opens, select "simple instrument track" and click OK.
The Instrument track will open. From the Input bar, click it and select your MIDI Keyboard. (This will just make sure that your MIDI keyboard, if you are using one, controls the instrument too)
Now you can import your MIDI file into the instrument and the notes that are laid out will trigger the instrument to play. If you don't like the instrument, change the settings in the instrument or change it to a different instrument.
Definitely take time to peruse the manual. Don't bother sitting down and reading the whole thing in one shot, in my opinion that rarely works. Instead, make music and when you come to a roadblock or a menu that you can't find, check out that specific area in the manual.
Which is better in terms of sound editing sony vegas pro 9 or Adobe premiere cs4?
I use Sony Vegas a lot. Its not great in the sound area. You can add in other sounds, change volume. slow down the sound. Simple stuff.
I wouldn't recommended it for sound editing.
I haven't used Premier much so I don't know to much about it.
I would look into Adobe Soundbooth: http://www.adobe.com/products/soundbooth/
or if you have a Mac Soundtrack is the way to go: http://www.apple.com/finalcutstudio/soundtrackpro/
I have used both of these programs and they both are great for sound editing.
What to do first, sound editing or special effects?
Do the sound editing (apart from cleaning, which you should do before you import the sound track) and the special effects as you progress along the timeline. Make sure the build bar (top of the timeline) extends only from the start to the point where you have edited. Hit "Enter" (the big one to the right of the " and } keys) to build. Do this several times as you progress along the timeline and save after each build. The final export to mpeg or avi format will take much less time. Also, if the program crashes for any reason, you won't have to create the effects all over again.
All the best!
what is the best way to see if i like Sound Editing?
like a recording engineer?
idk, i have been play guitar since i was 16 im almost 19.......and i like to edit my own solos...its pretty fun, but more like a hobby than a real job. i also edit a lot of music which is pretty cool, but again more like a hobby.
if you havent tried audacity, it is a free audio editor and pretty basic. try that, edit some music or sounds.
Best laptop for making flash animation and working with sound editing?

You have many template to choose from and music could be added.
You can download the free version to experience it first.
Good luck !
What's a good consumer sound editing/production program to start with?
If you're looking at going into that field professionally I would suggest Ardour.
It's probably the closest to any of the typical pro audio packages used (ProTools, etc.) while being available at a fraction of the price - it's free open source software.
Thing is, it's only available for Linux and Mac. To quote from their website: "...Windows continues to be a rather unsuitable platform for pro-audio work despite the improvements that have been made to it in the last few years."
Another possible choice is Audacity, which is a multitrack record/edit program suitable for general audio work but last I checked did not include certain things necessary for pro work.
GoldWave is sort of intimidating at first but is very easy to learn.
Very simple and easy to use. My recommendation goes to this one out of the two.
If money isn't an issue, you can use Adobe Audition.
http://www.adobe.com/products/audition/ (US$ 349,00)!!!
But, if you want a good free software, you must know Audacity.
For editing and recording - Audacity.
For DJ mixing - Zulu and MixSense:
These are all free. There are no programs for beginners as such just those with less functions.
