Audio Editing Terms

EQ Process of adjusting various audio frequencies to correct and enhance sound.
normalization Change audio overall volume by a fixed amount to reach a target level; used to match volumes and get max volume.
compression Reduces the dynamic range of your recording by bringing down the level of the loudest parts, meaning the loud and quiet parts are now closer together in volume and the natural volume variations are less obvious.
amplitude Loudness or intensity of sound at any given moment.
clipping Occurs when a signal exceeds a systems headroom and results in distortion.
gain Amplification effect of a sound by increasing the power of the signal.
de-ess Process of decreasing overmodulated "s" sounds in a recorded voice.
noise gate Turns off a signal path when an input signal is below a specified value, often used to remove background noise.
