How Audio Waveforms Can Help Your Music Editing Process
Our latest update to PremiumBeat’s royalty free music library will save you precious time once spent scrolling through song after song for your edit.
With the release of our latest new features, you no longer have to blindly listen to tracks before downloading comps and making a purchase. Now, you can see each track’s waveform, which will help you know more about the type of song you’re considering. Not only do select tracks give you access to stems, the search features are more intuitive. They register your region and return the most relevant search results based on new parameters such as “area.”
But, first let’s take a look at the new waveform feature and how this can improve your workflow.
Whether you’re trying to find a track with a specific number of beats per minute or a noticeable change in beat and volume, our new waveform feature is the perfect way to quickly look for the right song. The waveforms indicate how the song unfolds. Not only can you see tracks that are long, sweeping rhythmic pieces with little change (perfect as background music), you can also tell if a song is full of ups and downs, peaks and valleys — which might really make a title sequence stand out.
It’s also worth noting that seeing the waveform ahead of time can help build the edit in your mind before you actually start cutting clips. Waveforms can be an extremely helpful tool for understanding and working through your project. Whether you’re working with music or dialogue, there are certain things you can try out to begin reading waveforms with specific projects in mind.
No matter your level of experience with editing, audio editing, or videography, shortcuts and tricks like these are worth exploring to improve your overall experience and workflow.
