Thread: Normalizing Wedding Reception Audio

  1. Default Normalizing Wedding Reception Audio

    Hi folks! Non-audiophile lurker here... ;^)

    I am editing my wedding and reception videos and have a Vegas audio Q for y'all.

    The camera (no radio mic) is overlooking a table of people as it films the speeches being given from the head table. I am finding that the speeches are coming out quiet while the laughter and applause is coming out loud.

    Moreover, I (being a geek) decided I wanted my wedding video in 5.1 surround sound. Here is how I have handled the problem thus far:

    1. Split each speech into two regions: SPEECH and APPLAUSE in the trimmer.
    2. Import both individually.
    3. Adjust dB gain (so nothing peaks out) for Front/Center/LFE&Rear channels
    4. Perform #3 again on following APPLAUSE clip.

    There has GOT to be an easier way than this! I am worried that this will be a nightmare to listen to once I render and burn it (working on a 2.1 surround computer.) Lest we forget that any laughter or bursts of applause during the speech has not been split due to lack of patience on my part.

    I cannot seem to find a "Normalize" audio FX in Vegas, and I am FAR too dumb to learn how to use GoldWave right now since my brain is mush from learning Vegas for this project.

    Suggestions/Help/Smacks in the head all appreciated at this point.

    Regards,
    Craig

    OMG... That was easy... Apparently I need sleep! After some rough calculation, I have found I'm spending an hour on each 10-minute segment of this project. I gotta be nuts!

    Thanks AGAIN Mark W!

    BtheW, by 'don't bother' I assume you mean scrub the 5.1? My inner geek cringes!

    Thx again.

    Well - you gotta feed the inner geek somehow I suppose. But 5.1 editing looks like a struggle to me. Hard enough to get a stereo mix spot on good.

    Editing at an hour per 10 min is actually very fast. I have done edits - complex edits full of clever fx - that have procceded at 8 hours per 1 single uno 60 secondos minute of finished work.

    I'd have said that's no time at all to be spending on 10mins finished product.
