I'm a somewhat experienced video editor who has at most of my career had an audio guy nearby to work on sound design, effects and cleanup. For some freelance projects, however, there's nobody to do that. I occasionally have to remove some noise, compress interview audio and voiceovers, and mixdown voice with music in a way that doesn't suck. And mostly, it has been sucking. A lot.
Are there any good books or tutorials out there that teach a video editor like myself some good audio tricks in order to accomplish semi-professional results?
