What does "sound" really refer to in "sound design" or "sound editing"?
-Singular count noun, a single sound (could be said about 'sound design')
-Abstract or mass noun, "continuous" sound (probably clear in the case of 'sound editing', but can also be read from 'sound design'. This is [strangely?] also what 'sound design' practically refers to.)
Is it clear, which one is referred?
(As a non-native speaker I may also get it wrong)
