Enhance Your Dialogue Tracks
Dialogue is the aural center of your story, and in this tutorial you’ll learn Fairlight’s many and varied tools for managing and improving your voice tracks, including the use of fades, normalization options, equalizers, compressors, and noise reduction effects.
Trigger Foley Effects via MIDI
Foley effects are live sounds that are recorded to picture. You’ll learn how to use Resolve 17’s new Foley Sampler, which allows you to map your sound effects to keys on a MIDI keyboard, then record footsteps, thunder cracks, gun shots, or any other sound effect in your library during playback.
Automate Your Sound Mix
Once your dialogue, music and effects have been normalized, you’ll then turn your attention to achieving a balanced mix using a number of approaches, including the use of Fairlight’s powerful automation controls to record your fader movements. Then you’ll learn how to edit the automation data so your mix is exactly the way you want it.
Use Buses to Control Your Mix
Fairlight has a built-in mixer for routing your tracks wherever you want them. You’ll learn how to create buses for the purpose of combining related tracks,
then apply effects to the bus to give you more control over your mix. Additionally, you’ll learn why buses give you the most flexibility when outputting D, M, and E stems.

Great tutorial! Travis does a great job of leading you through Fairlight while also teaching basic audio theory, including use of EQ, Compression, FX and other. His style is easy to follow and he keeps you interest. This was a great purchase – as all of the Ripple tutorials and plug ins that I’ve purchased have been. Thank you folks at Ripple Training for all of the assistance and training!

Among Ripple’s excellent training videos I thought this was a standout product. The project worked on is full of real world opportunities for improving or fixing things that are actually found when editing film. The delivery and speed are very good. For me the depth of description was just right, obviously not everyone will be at the same level but I am very happy to have done this training and wholeheartedly recommend it.

I found the tutorial very informative and easy to follow. I have used other Ripple training tutorials for FCPX and Motion and this achieves their high standard as well.
I am a newcomer to Resolve but will be seeking to incorporate it into my editing workflow, particularly for colour management and; sound editing.
Would recommend this course for anyone starting with Resolve to gain a full understanding of what the Fairlight section can offer.

I have been using Ripple Training for many, many years now – even back to the days of the “old” Final Cut! I have always found Ripple’s training to be extremely well thought out and very well produced. They don’t “flap around” with non-essential information and commentary. What they deliver is professional training produced by professionals for a professional audience.
I am now editing on DaVinci Resolve and more than happy to recommend this Fairlight tutorial – it gives you a thorough grounding in all aspects of the software.

I’m going with four stars only because I have yet to fully tuck into the tutorial. But even after only the first 2 minutes or so this tutorial already addressed a couple of questions I’d been meaning to explore a bit more, so kudos and thank you for not just mobilizing this knowledge in very practical ways but also for offering the training at very affordable prices. I also use MZed and so the combination of that more theoretical approach and Ripple’s cut-to-the-chase pedagogy make for a powerful 1-2 punch.

I have used Logic Pro, Izotrope, and Accusonus audio tools, but Fairlight has been a fair challenge to my skills. This video has definitely helped with that challnege!
Ever since I purchased the Motion and Final Cut Pro tutorials I have tried to purchase Ripple Training tutorials if it was an issue of becoming certified in a particular software. Live on-line training has never worked for me because, I need the time to repeat the task being shown and not just be shown it once as almost all of the on-line software training has been. I used to be so frustrated that I couldn’t keep up with the presentations, but judging from the amount of questions being asked – it seems more of a shared problem. So – now, I just watch the sessions and do my studying later from the excellent tutorials Ripple Training makes. I can repeat and watch as often as I need after I download the tutorials. I’m going through my second round of Sound Editing in Fairlight for Resolve 17 by Travis Richmond. Yeah, second time – not because things aren’t clear but because I need to repeat things until I really understand how it works. This, as are the other tutorials are excellent.

This tutorial was my third purchase on Ripple Training and again I absolutely loved the course and very happy with my purchase decision. I am not an editor or a filmmaker, I am just a youtube starter but wanted to learn. 100 Percent, I recommend this Fairlight course to everyone who wants to learn. Thank you, Travis. You are a great and very talented person.

Very nicely done. This was mostly new to me, and gave me a much better sense of the flow of work, and what’s possible. Lots to learn! I also appreciated that you note some areas where Fairlight could be improved–I hope Blackmagic listens. What would be a very helpful extension of this tutorial would be some lessons on how to cope with common audio problems. Hums and similar things are mentioned here already, but more along these lines would help. For example, isolating one person’s voice when there is background crowd noise, eliminating sounds of aircraft or cars, dealing with echoes, and adjusting for various types of musical sounds. Many of us do not have sound studios and have to deal with outdoor recordings or other noises that penetrate our recording sites, and any guidance on good ways to deal with such challenges would be much appreciated. Finally I’m curious why the one element of Resolve that is focused on audio has the name Fairlight. 🙂 Thanks for the fine job.
