Audio Quality fixes???? help
on Dec 8, 2006 at 11:28:51 pm

I just finished editing a hunting video for VS. I want to sweeten the audio that was shot in the field. As usual audio was third nature to the crew. So I have tons of wind noise and the voices don't sound crisp and clear. I just exported the sequence to Soundtrack Pro.

Any advice? and What filters do you usually use to sweeten audio?

Sorry to say that this is one of those questions that can be summed up as, "Nobody bothered to record the audio correctly, how can I fix it with filters?"

Consider that if the DP shot the images out-of-focus and poorly-framed that a filter could not fix it.

The same can be said of poor audio.

You don't really "sweeten" BAD audio, you "sweeten" GOOD audio.

Try the digital noise reduction (sample just the "noise") and try some EQ for the poor "presence"... but don't expect filters to "save" a poorly-recorded track.

That's the sad truth.
