  1. I love epidemic sounds! It's where I get my music, but yep. I've been lazy with sound and I shouldn't be. Thanks for the kick in the butt! Great tips as always. Love the channel.

  2. could you just teach something more about audiofx and audio transition,there isn't that much tutorio on youtube. thx all the way

  3. Great tutoria! Matti, question: How much percentage do you level your overall audio (based on the audio bar located far right)?

  4. Hi Matti, been following for some time now and your work as well as many other great filmographers convinced to have a go! I just made my first ever travel edit, would love it if anyone fancied having a watch and had any feedback 🙂 thanks very much and keep up the amazing content!:)

  5. Great tips. I have just started using more sound effects in my videos. It is tricky to get used to but once you have it down it helps a lot.

  6. How does epidemic sound work? Just signed up and it's already letting me download some SFX, would my videos be copyrighted if I uploaded on youtube without technically buying license? Confused with the process sorry

  7. hey master! I have a question, what's the name of this sound (low bass sound effect) generally used by you and Peter in transitions that can move/vibrate your chest but it's not really the sound of anything in special? 🙂 I hope my question is not a mess ahah thanks!!
    Keep up the great work! @TravelFeels

  8. Thank you Matti … the knowledge you share is appreciated and very inspirational. Hard to watch these without out taking a few notes!
      • Check out sound resource links
      • Record your own
      • Sound design should be subtle to enhance the film and not be distracting

  9. Hi Matti, when do you use external mics (ie. Rode mic)? Is it something always attached to your camera as you are doing shots so you can also choose to get quality ambient sound straight from camera – or is your typical workflow to take manually add the sound effects in post processing?

  10. Um. Being an Audio Engineer, and beginning Sound Designer, i deffinatly would say it takes skill hard work to be a sound designer. So much more work than you know.

  11. Darn, what a professional you are! Love your film work, and I hope you to live long in sound industry 🙂

    With respect, random commenter out.

  12. Can someone tell me how to do 'audio continuity' (idk what the real term is). The continuity of dialogue while camera switches angles.

  13. “Doesn’t actually take that much skill,” this is a misleading statement. Keep in mind that while it’s easy to just download sample packs these days, it took a dedicated team & expensive equipment to get you those sounds! That’s why it can be hard to find decent sounds for free! Other than that statement, good video! Audio is 50 percent of the experience!

  14. Hey thanks cool video 🙂 For those who are interested the website SoundMorph.com has a few free sound FX samples that are real great to begin with (robotic sounds, risers, stomps, bass drops, whoosh, etc.)

  15. Hi !
    Very cool and instructive video. as a sound designer I believe sound is very important indeed… I wouldn't have dedicated my whole life into sound if I didn't think so 🙂
    At 4:00 Matti makes an excellent point. Finding and adding a sound effect to your video is not about the exact sound of what you want to illustrate, but finding the sound that will "sound" the best and even add a little bit of cinematic, or poetry, or tension or whatever you wish to express in your sequence.
    (by the way I just made a video about the sound effects that are not what you think in major movies if you want to check it out).

    Anyway, I had an idea, and I am asking around to have people's and youtuber's opinion about it. There are a lot of youtubers out there who need sound for their videos. I was thinking of creating a sound design service dedicated to youtubers. I can work really fast to give the little sound touch that your videos lack for a reasonable price.
    My first question would be: is there a demand for that ?

  16. If you want to browse a library of professionally recorded sound effects check out https://www.asoundeffect.com/
    I work professionally as a sound designer and this is where I go first if I'm looking for a library.

  17. But would you agree, if the coffee grinding was like really in your face / in your ears, it would have been funny, the footage I mean

  18. You didn't mention collaborating with a sound designer in any of your options which makes me sad to see how forgotten we are in the industry

  19. I hate sound design but it is very important to have it by watching this video I will put some effort on sound design

  20. Realistically, is this something I can do as a part time hobby/job. I love sound and music, I’m a huge EDM fan and do not find reality in becoming an artist but want to get my feet wet in some part of this process. I don’t know where to start, I have a career in structural engineering but long to fill a void in myself that is music. Do I take night classes in sound engineering? Do I start learning the ins and outs of Synths? I don’t know what to do or where to start but need to do something. Advice please

  21. well that's rather sound implementation than design specifically, and no that's not the hardest part of audiovisuals, clearly .HOWEVER ,strictly speaking, sound DESIGN is just like a composing , except it's mostly dealing with noise, not with necessarily with notes (notes= sounds with specific time/pitch/superposition – noise= sounds that don't obey those parameters specifically)
    using premade samples and plopping them into a timeline is the peanut part of the job, actually engineering non existing sounds is the real hard part of the job.
    In many productions you actually are hired to create SFX that have no real world basis by whatever means. and THAT is the real audio design. and it's a challenge every time, it's a full time job.

    like if you're working on stuff like harry potter & the likes, the basic foley work and regular implementation stuff is really peanuts compared to the effort required to conceptualize& soundifying wands being waved or spells being cast. everybody in the world knows how footsteps sound, but nobody knows what magical wands sound like. well as audio designer , you're paid to be the one to know how it's supposed to sound. you'd be amazed the kind of totally unrelated & counter intuitive audio sources we use to produce such sounds. and this is anything but easy.

  22. Hey matti, I'm a new subscriber here and I'm currently loving your content.
    I have an important question, I want to learn sound design in university but currently all that I'm seeing is audio engineering and I'm scared because I am. Not finding any sound design courses.
    My question is that do I have to learn audio engineering courses so I can be a sound designer?, or is there sound designing courses?

  23. That's was awesome thanks for explains to us, but i still have question, in case of making film travel what thing that you have to do first, is that looking for the music first before editing and edit them by music character or put the footage and arrange them into timeline sequence then put the music?

    Thank you hope you enlighten me
    😁

  24. I love your videos… trying so hard to edit like you… my difficult now: Edit video with sometime pausing the sound or crashing it with sound effect, changing and coming back with the previously song, this is awesome. could you teach it? thanks a lot

  25. Hello how are you ?
    I have made a few films for the big screen. I have never put anything in surround sound yet.
    But perhaps when I make another movie it will be in surround sound. I use audacity.
    I have an h4n zoom recorder. I usually put my movies on Blu-ray.
    I have played them in a theater called Atlas Cinema in Elyria Ohio. Have you ever done anything in surround sound ?

  26. In the first example it sounds like you're filling marbles or pebbles into the coffee grinder, not coffee beans. Sound design is important, yes, but it's also important that you pay close attention to all the details of a sound.
