Urgent Help - Wedding video woes
I recently recorded a wedding at our church on video. However when I captured the footage the voice of the Minister is distorted not badly but enough to drive me nuts. I used a sennheiser radio lapel mic. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas to improve the sound quality, take the edge of the ministers voice. It seems I had the sensitivity on the mic set wrong, however everyone else sounds great. I use Adobe Premiere Pro 2.0.
Any ideas would be great.
You could try this:
1) Un-link the audio and video tracks.
2) Use the razor tool to slice and isolate the audio track when the Pastor is speaking.
3) Use the parametric EQ audio filter on those portions and try to eliminate the distortion.
Tim's answer should let you make it much better. I hope you don't have to do it but I understand that at my church sometime in the past they re-did a memorial service just to get a good recording of it. That couldn't have been fun for anyone involved.
Another way to tackle this is a variant of what tim said...
slice up only what pastor is saying, and put it in a separate track. mute the others, then export the audio as a WAV. next, you can use Adobe Audition, Sound Forge, or whatever other wave editing program you have handy (Audition and Sound Forge both have 30-day demos you can use) to clean up what you need.
Another program that may help is Steinberg Clean. It's more designed for restoring from vinyl or to correct a bad tape hiss, but it's not too expensive and may also work for you.
