Audio issue
on Mar 11, 2014 at 2:18:17 am

I can never seem to find the previous post that's just like my issue. I have a short sequence with 2 people talking, recorded at different times. The female voice sounds ever so slightly like she is in a hall. Just the slightest echo or reverb to it. I think the mike was just a bit too far and she projected a bit too much. This issue makes the voices sound vastly different and she is a bit hard to understand. Can anyone recommend a filter or a process that can eliminate that echo sound. Thanks.

You might try using a gate filter, with an aggressive attack/release time, but really, I think you're out of luck, sorry.

iZotope's RX3 has a Deverb filter (it may only be in RX3 Advanced) that might help. In addition to Mark's suggestion you can try adding a bit of eq in the 200-400Hz range to add some warmth and body as long as that doesn't exacerbate the issue. And you can try sweeping the frequencies with a parametric eq with a narrow Q that's set to maximum cut to see if you can find a freq that decreases the offending sound. If you find the spot, then adjust the eq cut so you just start hearing the improvement. Don't cut too much.

You'd probably be better off duplicating the acoustic conditions under which the good audio was recorded, and re-recording the bad audio.

I'm glad there are a few possibilities anyway without going right to re-record. Quick question: Are these suggestions to be performed in FCP7 or do it Soundtrack Pro?

Soundtrack Pro has better tools.

Did you also have a mic mounted on your camera and, if so, are you possibly using the camera track(s) in your sequence?

Just to follow up. I tried the free trial of Izoptope RX3 Advanced. Really good stuff. The de-reverberation filter made it completely go away. Problem is I just can't pull the trigger with the cost of it as I couldn't say when I would ever use it again. You can't keep the repair with the trial. For the money the software costs, we are better of financially re-shooting. But, for those of you with deep pockets, I urge you to try that package, it has automated and manual features. The denoiser is excellent too. Thanks to all that had input here.
