Need to Remove Voice Doubling Echo Effect

Permanent link to this post Posted by DDozier » Thu Mar 08, 2012 3:04 am

Hello - I have a WAV file that has a vocal that was doubled (two tracks made into one) with some music in the background. I would like to remove the second vocal (echo) track so that it's just one voice sound, not two. Is it possible to remove the extra echo voice? I've attached an MP3 shortened sample of the file. I'd appreciate any help you can offer!

No. That's an echo and echoes are terminal. You might be able to remove all the voices with Effect > Vocal Removal.

No, it's a mono track and Vocal Removal only works on stereo tracks.

We warn people to save everything as they do production. Do you have the original raw voice track and raw music bed as separate files? This is the reason not to keep recording newly produced tracks over old ones -- like use the same file name over and over through the whole show.

I still have studio voice tracks I shot a month ago against the time the production people decide they need it or they damage something.

"Koz? Do you have the actor's voice from the January shoot?"

I do have the actor's raw voice track, but I do not have the music bed track, unfortunately, that's why I'm trying to figure out how to remove the echo. Thanks for your help!
