easy way to fix sound effects on ppro cs4?

Hi,

I am kinda new to sound editing, i am just wondering if there is any easy way to fix some sound effects files (e.g. some car horn, telephone ring and box dropping wav files) on premiere pro cs4, I mean, with their built-in audio effects/transition tools?

what do you suggest to do to incorporate those sound to the footage better so that they don't sound awkward and detached? Right now I am using different tracks for effects, music and ambient sound, so I have the ambient sound line up on a separate track, but I hope the effects can blend in. those effects are recorded in a room so you can feel they don't match the exterior setting of the footage and ambient sound..

thanks

Either re-record the efx outside, or buy them from a professional sound efx company such as Sound Dogs.

i got a lot of the sound effects files already, now I am just wondering how can i mix the effect better with the ambient sound. i know i can use the reverb effect for interior scene, and it works, but i am just wondering for exterior (forest), which audio effect work best?

thanks

None. There is no reverb or room sound in the forest, sounds should be dry.

Brian gave you the right answer.

There is no practical way to remove the room sound from sound effects if they were recorded with them.

If you absolutely cannot re-record them dry, it may help a little to mix them lower, and cut as much of the low frequencies in them as possible without it destroying the sound. A tight downward expander, carefully adjusted, may remove a little of the ring from the room.
