audio clean up?
      #870663 - 26/10/10 10:10 AM
I have an audio clip from a film and I need to take out the music in the background but retain the voice speaking.

I am using soundtrack pro and audacity but with not great results.

Can anyone help me please!

3 Words:

Automatic Dialogue Replacement.


Stop wasting your time with bad audio. It won't deliver the results you expect.

Agreed. Replacing the dialogue and reconstructing the background ambience is probably a better and faster way of resolving this problem, and is common practice.

Unfortunately the film clip is something I've been given and not created so unable to ADR.

I was wondering if there was any software or common technique that could achieve this for me. A kind of reverse approach to the common vocal removal/Karaoke type software.

Send it to the CEDAR Bureau service and see if they can clean it up using the CEDAR Cambridge suite of audio restoration tools. If they can't do it, no one can. It's not that expensive and you'll not find a better solution.
