A client of mine has downloaded some audio from the Internet and given it to me to use in an edit and it sounds terrible. Low quality, a little crackly, low base, sounding a little tinny.
Would anyone have some suggestions on how I would go about fixing this problem? I have the full CS5.5 suite.
Thank you and wishing you a happy New Year!!!
thanks Shooternz :-)
However, I will be charging them extra for the time I spend in fixing the audio and that's why I'm asking anyone in the forum for suggestions on which controls to use in Adobe Audition as Jake suggested using. e.g. would I use base, trebble etc. to boost quality? Or would I just trial and error.
Thanks Richard, I definitely see the value in hiring a sound engineer. With these jobs, I'd just like to learn how to do some basic audio editing. Just to improve it a little. I've seen a number of effects which I can add in Premiere and I can also see hat there are some pretty cool controls in audition. I'd just like to get a rough idea on which tools or effects to use to make the audio sound a little better.
As has been mentioned, starting with good Audio is the key, but there are some things that can be done to "improve" some less than stellar Audio. This ARTICLE covers some of it.
The rec. to do the Audio work in Audition is a where I would start. However, while it's a great program, even it has limitations. At some point, you will be faced with "diminishing returns," on what can be done to improve the Audio vs how long it takes.
