I recorded a video project (woman speaking on camera) and we then realized there was a section missing, some audio content we needed to insert. So we recorded the additional audio content and I’m inserting this audio into the original audio. It’s the same person, speaking, but the pitch of the original recording is just a bit above the newly recorded audio and the “feel” isn’t the same (different mics, different room, etc.). I’m wondering if Audition has a way of helping me to do some digital magic to match these two audio recordings to match them and make them sound like the whole thing is just one long take. Does anyone know how I might do this?
Before you say it, of course we could just re-shoot the entire thing but this would include re-renting the cameras, setting up the shot, paying for the person to come back in, etc. etc. Before we go that far I thought I’d ask the question. And in case you’re wondering, the video shows the person talking, then the shot goes off to show other images while the voice continues over the images. It’s in this “other images” section where we’re inserting the new audio file. After this, the scene goes back to the person speaking and she finishes saying what she’s saying.
Any help??? I’m guessing I can use some EQ adjustments to “match” the feel as best I can, lay in some noise to “feather” it, and possibly bend down the high video’s audio and bend up the new audio’s recording with pitch bending to match the pitches but I’m not sure if this is the best way about going at this. Is there an easier or more accurate way? I do have Necture2 installed. Maybe that could do it.
