Line up reversed sounds
Be careful with the placement of reversed sounds in your cinematic effects. Suppose you’ve decided you’re using a deep piano octave as a long tension builder into a specific hit point. It’s highly likely that the bright attack portion of the original piano recording, now at the end of the audio file once you’ve reversed it, won’t sound great, but trimming it off will leave your sound finishing ‘early’, before the hit point. To combat this, move your playback bar to the hit point, zoom in as far as you can and move the trimmed audio file along until it ends at the right spot. Then add a 2ms fade-out to ensure it doesn’t click.
