Fixing echoey audio
on Feb 10, 2013 at 12:27:12 am

Hey so this might be futile but I have been surprised from some of the guru's on here in the past so heres my issue.

long story short I shot an interview, had the subject mic'ed up, somewhere along the line lost the audio files. So im trying to see if I can salvage the on board audio to make this work so I don't have to reshoot.

Being on board audio needless to say its shit, I need to get rid of a slight echo, and some background buzz, as well anything I can do to warm up the voice itself would be beneficial. I am pretty new to Premiere and in the spirit of trying to master the software I am trying to figure out my problem using adobe software.

Any tips suggestions or flat out work flow that would be awesome, thanks in advance

If you're only using Premiere, look into the denoiser to remove general noise (freeze it on an area of noise only in the audio). For reverb removal, you could use a pretty aggressive noise gate - this is in the dynamics effect. For warmth you could try an EQ and play with the frequencies between 1k to 6k to give it some slight breath.

Thanks Angelo, I do not necessarily only need to do this entirely through premiere, Work just got us on the CS6 cloud so I have access to the adobe library of software. I am a FCP guy thats making the switch so I am somewhat unfamiliar with whats available. So if there is a better way I would love to hear it.

Thanks again

Although Angelo´s advice is good for working only with Premiere, i would send the audio clips to Adobe Audition through Dynamic Link, it has better tools to work with audio than Premiere and with Dynamic Link the workflow is really fast and efficient.

Maybe you´ll want to take a look at this:

There are some VST plugins that might help. The idea of deconvolving reverb hash been around for a while. I recently tested the demo version of this and was impressed. It isn't cheap but it is good.

I also found this but haven't tested it

VST plugins can be used in Pr although I have not tested these in PR.

After reading thread after thread discussing the impossibility of removing reverb from an audio file, I stumble on this. The Zynaptiq plugin works flawlessly with Adobe Audition and completely removed the room echo from what would have been an unusable interview.
