Ah thank you! Yes the music track plays throughout the recording and changes a few times to match the scene. Even when there is no vocals, there will be music. I apologize for not explaining that well.
Thankfully the way I have it setup the vocals and music remain on separate tracks so I can remix it, but I am trying to limit the amount of time I spend on each file.
Can I compress the length of the music track to match the edited voice track? Two issues I see are that It may not fully line up with where the song originally changes and I would need to edit the sound on the music track as it be compressed.
What about using detect silence on the voice track then using those labels to split the music track and crossfading at those splits?
You can do it any way that suits you, but as I wrote previously, the way that I would do it would be to edit all of the voice audio first (without any music), and then add the music to fit the edited voice recording.
While I absolutely agree that this would be the right way to handle it from a synchronization and audio quality standpoint, each recording is around 4 hours and the music is changed on the fly to match the scene. I just don’t have the time to do it the right way, so I am looking for the next best option.
Do you have any suggestions for selecting the silence from the voice track and applying that selection to the music track?
