I’ve been doing a podcast segment for a few years that gets mixed in Garageband, and the producer had me using a Mac to edit and sweeten it in post myself so he could just drop it in. Well, the Mac went ashcan (it was old), and now I’m using a PC running Win7 Pro. So I can’t use Garageband in post anymore; I’m back to Audacity (2.1.2) from start to finish. The problem is, the individual FX are broken down and operated differently in Aud & GB.
The Garageband settings I used were Echo 4% and reverb 19%; Compression: threshold -23.5, ration 4.8:1, attack 10 ms,gain 4db.
Anyone here of the bi-DAW-ual persuasion that could help me translate those settings into an Audacity packet that would sound (at least mostly) the same?
Ugh… I don’t think I have any original wav files; just mostly the finished m4a’s and mp3’s. I do have some of the original .aup files though… I’ll export a chunk of .wav and have the producer run the GB processing on it so I have a comparative sample.
If it’s not exact, no biggie… I’d just like to get that hollow, stone-vault sound in Audacity and I didn’t do a very good job of it when I last tried. I’m not much of a sound engineer beyond the basics.
