The key word here is guidance...
A have an audio file of a Q&A session (all spoken word) that is in need of repair.
I'm requesting guidance for ideas on how-to best go about this task.
Here's what I started to do...
In a VIP...imported the audio file into track #1.
Then, for the speaker's vocals only, created named ranges.
This was done in order to isolate the speaker's vocals.
All the remaining non-ranged vocals would be the participants-asking-questions.
I was planning on moving the speaker's vocals (via the ranges) to another track (i.e track #2).
And...in moving them...retain (in the new track) their respective timelines/positions from track #1.
Well..I didn't move them because:
1) I didn't know how to move all the named ranges to another track
2) And...more importantly...a realization that I might be going about this task the wrong way.
Some more info...
Pretty sure I can fix the speaker's vocals with some global EQ adjustments:
1) cut the low-end
2) add some presence & high-end.
But..the participants-asking-questions are the real problem:
1) Some are loud & boomy.
2) Some are so quiet that you can hardly hear them.
So...their fixes must be individualized.
Then...after all vocals are fixed....globally apply hiss-reduction & some normalization.
End result....understandable vocals with a consistent volume.
I know there are probably many ways to go about this.
And...some of you could do this fix in no time at all.
Well...it's definitely going to take me a few days to accomplish.
Now...for some guidance...please.
