Here’s a peak at what film composers’ work desks look like. I’m working a 90-second orchestral musical number. We recorded 7 singers solo plus in 3 duo pairings. Here is what the “assembly”, or “comping” of the best takes looks like in Pro Tools.
This is the first pass, but the editing won’t get much messier from here.
I imagine this is nothing compared to what the dialogue editors routinely face. Then again, I’m only showing you the vocals, the 80-piece orchestra we recorded resides in another Pro Tool session. 😉
