    Default help: remove the echo

    could someone tell me how to remove the echo (because of the low quality mic) from a video? I have no program for audio editing, so suggest me one

    There isn't one.

    Once echo, reverb or distortion is present in the original recording, there's nothing which can remove it completely.

    Sorry.

    The folks at Cedar audio might have something to say about that...

    mail them a short clip and see what they can do for you.
    If you decide it's helpful they will process the whole piece and charge you a very reasonable amount for the service.

    Take some lessons in sound recording or at least get some good books on the subject.

    Good luck!

    He is essentially correct. It is VERY important to get the best sound and lighting on your original recording because post-production can salvage things only so far.

    If you have Sony Vegas Pro you can add a processing trick to the track. There is a noise reduction gate where you can set the threshold for silencing at a certain db level. In theory, you can set that gate to where it will silence out the echo after the initial words are spoken, but you must be careful not to set the cutoff too high, otherwise it will "clip" the speech. Sorry I could not be more helpful.

    I would also add that a poor quality mic is NOT the reason that you have echo. If you buy a better quality mic, but place it in the same position in the same environment next time, you'll still get echo - though possibly better quality echo

    I missed out on a prime opportunity, and hang my head in pun shame.

    If only I could filter out my words properly, instead of distorting the issue.
    Please do not delay to correct my omissions in future, so I can edit my sentences.
    This will ensure my posts achieve excellent grading, and I remain focussed on the issues.

    Not bad for a Monday morning.
