The Holy Grail of sound editing design is the ability to press a single button and “everything sounds great!” The Good Sound Button. There are many iterations of this for various deliveries and niches, but for something as far-reaching as post production, it’s a tall order indeed. Add to this most NLEs lack of audio capabilities, and you have a situation where such a thing cannot exist.
With the advent Adobe Premiere Pro and Black Magic’s Davinci Resolve, audio has become a focus, and we’re all the happier for it. The ability to press as few buttons as possible to create a great sound from near-garbage sound is what we’re after here, and for the first time in a long time, two NLEs are up to tackle the task.
In this video in the Premiere Vs. Resolve Showdown series, Cinema Sound host, Mark Edward Lewis, explores the contrast and comparison of Premiere Pro and Resolve’s Parametric EQ plugins to find out which one works best for post production. In this installment, we see how fast it takes us to “engage the Good Sound Button” in both NLEs. In other words, how fast can we use simple tools to make things sound great (from bad sounding content).
