I have only recently discovered Audacity and find it great, I am just getting used to moving around the software and trying different things to see what they can do.
I have a project where I have two audio sources, a Canon 5D MkII with Sennheiser MKE400 mic and a Zoom H4. Unfortunately the sound from either is not good due to poor recording set-up and I want to take the best elements from each. The audio is of a live blues band playing loud in a small venue.
The H4 is on top, no clipping but no dynamics either. The 5D is on the bottom, loads of clipping but no bass.
I have experimented with Normalise, Leveller and Equaliser and have improved the sound (or at least changed it - not entirely sure it is better!). I am not sure which order I should apply the effects or it there are any others I should use. I would be grateful for any suggestions.
I am not expecting a studio quality recording from these two poorly recorded tracks but I would like to make the best of a bad lot. Also there is a slight sync issues the H4 tracks is .2 seconds out over the full length but I can fix that ok.
This is my first post here, so apologies for landing with a question on day one. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
