I am in a class at church with my wife. We missed a couple of classes cause she had been in the hospital and we got the classes we missed on CD.
These CDs were done in STP (SoundTrack Pro) but they are lousy. The sound is really low and there's a few minutes at the beginning they should have omitted for the class cause it's just chatter.
What would you suggest is the best way for my to fix these ??
format AIFF 16 bit , 44100 , stereo , and they are HUGE cause they're one hour plus classes, and they were burned without chapters at all for a whopping 6 minute wait time just dragging them into STP track.
?? Anyway, should I reverse engineer the clip in STP ?? or just make an MP3 in ITunes and re-burn it normalized ??
Well, from the sound of it, the clip sounds like it was just one channel, so reverse-engineering it shouldn't matter that much. If there are multiple channels with different information on them (other sources in other locations, etc.), then you would want them individually.
Who cares if it takes 6min. to import? Go make some tea, coffee, or hot cocoa and then come back when it's done. :-)
I think that the S/N ration might be compromised due to the low level of the audio as it exists on the "mastered" copy of the recording that you have. Maybe you can get the church to send you a copy of the original so you can remaster it FOR THEM (business or ministry opportunity, mayhaps?). Either way, see what you can do and make the best of it! Have fun...
