I am constantly making short films, and I want to improve my post-production audio, specifically dialogue mixing.
I'm not sure if that's the correct term, so specifically, I want to learn how to identify and fix problems with recorded dialogue tracks.
I am looking for a resource (ideally) aimed at a beginner, but covering the topic to the level of detail required of someone working on a film/television production.
I have not successfully found such a resource using Google. YouTube tutorials tend to lack comprehensiveness (e.g. they introduce you to a topic such as de-noising, but try to present a one-click solution, they don't teach you how to tweak the parameters to get a better result, or focus on the tools rather than provide an understanding of what constitutes a good result)
Advanced resources, such as forum posts, tend to be decentralized and addressed at people with moderate to advanced understandings of the topic, and I have trouble understanding these because my skill level and vocabulary is low.
Another big issue is that I don't know what I don't know. Again, comprehensiveness is key.
My ideal tutorial is this series: https://www.provideocoalition.com/advanced-keying-with-after-effects-part-1/ which covers chroma keying in After Effects. I am looking for tutorials like this, but for de-essing, de-noising, EQ, LUFS, and whatever other skill that someone mixing dialogue should understand. Ideally written for REAPER, but if I absolutely positively should be using a different DAW for this task, I would switch.
