My name is Jerry, and my primary operating system is Linux Slackware 14.2 (patched), and I often record public events such as parades, festivals, and community events, as a function of my non-profit charity [link removed]. However; many of those activities can not be posted on places like Youtube, as there are always parade floats, and booths, that play copyrighted music in the background, and Youtube either de-monetizes the video, or blocks the video completely.
Currently, I use ffmpeg to rip the audio track from the video, then use Audacity 2.3.2 which I compile from source code, to import a copyright free song and mix it into the audio track. Say for example, during a parade, I fade-in the copyright free song (adjusting for Doppler volume), so that it’s always louder than the copyrighted music, so that the copyrighted music is being drowned out, then as the parade passes, I fade-out the music.
I have tried loading in the data file of a copyrighted song, to use it as the sample for Audacity’s Noise Reduction plugin, in the hope it would identify the song as noise and remove it, but that ideal failed.
Would there be any way to add this as a plugin into audacity? A plugin that could use an input song (wav, mp3, ogg, ect … ) to learn what a song sounds like, then search and remove, or at least reduce the volume of that song, in a larger audio track?
Similar to noise reduction, but identifying the song as the noise needing removed, or reduced, while leaving the other sounds largely untouched.
