Is this audio fixable?
on Mar 2, 2013 at 9:02:47 am

Currently in post, and we got some bad audio on a shoot. I dont know much about audio post production but my instincts tell me i can't be saved.
Can i? here are the audio files from the scene: https://soundcloud.com/doloreel/kitchen-scene-mono-127

Cheers

Can you clarify exactly what it is your wanting saving.
is it the low levels, the fact that the 2 people are different levels or the fact that the clatter around a lot throughout?
How was it recorded etc etc . More info?

Well, sorry, i'm not well versed in this. I guess i meant 'generally better'. But if i had to choose a pressing issue it would be probably be to somehow eliminate the noise while getting the dialogue to a clear audio level.
As for the recording situation: it was recorded on an NTG-3 + H4n on a boom.

HI
any clues as to what happened after the clapperboards?
They are at a very sensible and healthy level, then the scene dialogue is way down. How di dthat happen. Why was htis turned down?

We had a really wide set up, but we clapped close to the boom.

Ill have a look at it when im back in the studio and see how much background is dragged up to lift it out of the floor, and then what cleaning up can be done with it as a result.
Im not in studio tomorrow as Im out on location, but Tuesday will have a listen

HI Jeremy
where should i put my audio for you?
If you post an email address i can email or send you an ftp link.

I increased the gain significantly (as did TY) but then cleaned up the rather noticable background tone that had been dragged up with the gain a lot.

Jeremy,

See if this works for you. I simply gained up the audio after "Action" so it's as loud as it could be without clipping.

Hey peter! thanks again for your clean up! It's perfect! I hope it didn't take long.

I'll probably be using the in the take now. Still got a lot of post sound to do, but this take was the most troubling.

Cheers!

PS. Sorry for the late replies, i've been busy on MULTIPLE projects, which are bogging me down.
