·         Use post-production plugins such as EQ, compression, noise reduction, and others to ensure smooth, quality recordings, taking out any unwanted room noise, mouth noise, or artifacts that may be in the recordings

·         Work with the Audio Director and Motion Capture, Cinematics, and Design teams in the Dialogue Editing and Sound Design process

·         Testing and debugging your work in builds of the game to make sure audio you implement is working as desired

·         Experience with audio post production plugins for voice and sound design
