Audio Editing Services

Audio Editing Services


Producers are allowed to improve the audio of their movies by adding music and sound using a basic linear and non-linear editing systems. BCM has provided audio editing services for the past three years.

What we provide (this is subject to change)
Three stations for audio dubbing including a variety (not all) adapter cables, monitor, mixer, microphones; one Final Cut Pro 5.04 Macintosh computer station. Wireless internet connection.

Random Helpful Tips:
* Bring your own hard drive and cables if editing on the computer. (remember that FAT32 formatted drives can be read by a Macintosh, but only will capture up to 4-GB of data before giving weird messages.
* Remember to charge your camera batteries and bring your AC adapter.
* Be CERTAIN that your camera can record back because extra decks may not be available.
* HDV tapes will not work in the tape players.
* Bring your own music, extra CDs and DVDs (we will sell them to you for $5.00 each)
* Remember to record your rough-cut movie on your own tape. Save the Shootout Tape to record the final cut of your movie. It’s a hassle if you record your rough-cut on your Shootout tape. (we will have tapes for $10.00 each – don’t forget tape!)

Price to defray our costs:
We accept cash and checks. There are no refunds.

$ for one 30-minute session (whether you use the provided equipment or not)
$$ for two 30-minute sessions (whether you use the provided equipment or not)
$$$ for one hour on the provided computer (remember it takes about 20 minutes just to capture and record back to tape)

There are no reservations:
This is “first come, first serve” from Saturday noon to 5pm and we will try to have stations available on the hour or half-hour. A priority list will be kept like at a restaurant, but spots won’t be held.


One thought on “Audio Editing Services”

  1. We intend to take full advantage of the dubbing facilities, but we have a failrly steep learning curve to overcome. So some questions. We are shooting with an Canon XH-A1, I believe we cannot record back on that camera. So some questions. If we pre-record some audio, what is the prefered media/storage to record to, such that we can utilize the dubbing stations to the fullest? If we want to dub music, should we prerecord the music or bring our instruments in and record at the dubbing station. What is the work flow chart look like? These are not the full extent of our questions but just a taste.

    Great fun!! Thankyou Shootout Boulder!!!!!!
