I've been using ProTools with an M-Box for about 8 years, recording and editing spoken-word narration for a series of art guides. My guides run anywhere from 2 to 3 hours, usually anywhere from 20 to 30 tracks.
I used to have a sound engineer work on them before publishing but have done the last two titles entirely myself. They sound pretty good, but the editing took FOREVER, and I'm sure there are tools I could have used to enhance the quality of the sound.
I'd like to learn how to edit more efficiently, and to use the tools more effectively.
The one or two guides I've looked at are totally music-oriented. My question: Can anyone recommend a guide (for a non-technical beginner) that is more oriented toward editing spoken-word audio? Would the ProTools For Dummies book give me what I need? (my library doesn't have a copy for me to look at)
