I’m not sure if this is a simple problem or not… I’ve been trying to find a solution for some time now, with no success. Hopefully someone can offer some insight.
I have two different recordings of the same song. One has a slight skip in it, so I want to replace that exact part of the song with a small clip from the other version. The problem is that the other version is much, much lower quality. I don’t mind a small blip in the quality, but I figure if I can at least equalize the clip so that it has the same spectrum as the song, it’ll sound a bit better. Here’s what I’ve done so far: selected the section of the song that I want to replace, and taken a spectrum, then exported the spectrum to a text file. What I want to do is equalize the clip using this spectrum before pasting it into the song. I know audacity has a few preset equalizations, but I want to use the exported spectrum as a custom equalization (and a much more specific one, at that.)
Does anybody know of a way to do this, either in Audacity, or with another piece of free software?
Also… I guess it would be handy to know how to line up a clip such as this. Is there a function in a piece of software that would “snap” the clip to the section most similar to it?
