Rarely will a video producer lay down an audio track and leave it. Good, recorded sound is essential in any production, but we can all use a touch-up here and there.
Some people prefer their coffee black, but many of us use at least a little cream and/or sugar to smooth it out a bit. The same is true with video sound. You may have captured a solid recording, but with a little tweaking here and there, it can be awesome. In production jargon, we call this audio sweetening and it's an important part of anything you've seen on the big or small screen. So think of it as cream and sugar, seasoning on food or even Photoshop for sound, but audio sweetening is here to stay.
Audio editors sweeten their tracks using a variety of tools: tone control, dynamics control and time-based effects. Used alone or in combination, these adjustments make sounds bigger, fuller and give them a professional polish.
