Hi, looking for help with the following(if it is even possible to correct my mess!)…
My guest was moving her head from side to side whilst talking into the mic (rookie error on my part , I should have stopped this during the recording…)
During editing, in my attempts to make the audio sound more ‘level’ and less ‘loud-quiet-loud-quiet’ (I manually went amplified sections of the track which looked lower), I think I have ruined it completely.
Can anyone help me to rectify this?
Is there some magic plug-in that could possibly help here
This sound like right down Chris’s Compressor street.
Chris created a dynamic compressor that would allow him to listen to opera in the car. No matter what the performers did, the compressor would “adjust” things to be audible. It’s a look-ahead compressor which means it knows ahead of time when it has to move things around. That means it doesn’t “pump” or squash or do any of the other things that plain software compressors do. It’s a limiter, too, so you can bring up the volume without worrying about overload distortion.
It does have some restrictions because it was never a commercial product. It was just Chris. Put five or ten seconds of sound you don’t care about at the beginning and end of the work for Chris to “chew on.” Chris doesn’t like sailing off the end of a performance.
