Thread: Extracting Sound

  1. #1

    Default Extracting Sound

    Recently I've been filming my friend's band a lot. I have quite a few tapes of his gigs now. The problem is, he's asked me to take the audio from the tapes and put them on a CD.

    Firstly; is this possible?

    If so, what do I need to do it?

    The other problem I have is putting the footage onto my PC. Each tape is roughly 45mins long and from previous experience (which I have very little of) I don't think my PC can handle it.
    Using Adobe Premiere Pro free trial I imported a short bit of footage and it took up gigabytes of memory. Footage of this length will require more space than my computer has available.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Assuming these are standard minDV tapes we are talking about, captured through firewire then, on average, a one hour tape will capture and need about 12Gb of disk space.

    Depending on what s/w you have/use you can seperate the audio from the video, saving it to a WAV or MP3 files or whatevere. I'm not sure what freeware might be able to do this though. Maybe someone else can recommend something. I know premiere Pro has an export audio only option but that sound (no pun intended) like a sledgehammer to crack a nut though. Then just trash the capture files and burn the audio to a CD as an audio CD.

    Stop Press. From memory I thinkl premiere pro might even have a capture audio only option. problem solved.
