I’m making a video with material from a canon zr100 camcorder. The camera has self-adjusting volume but still, some parts are too loud, some parts are too soft and some parts are too noisy. I’ve also inserted some music in .wav format that is too loud. I exported the audio from the video editing program and imported it into cubase studio 5 without a hitch. I would like to accomplish the following:
- get the volume levels more even
- get rid of some of the hiss (or whatever) noise from the camera audio
If you’re asking yourself, “doesn’t this guy know anything about limiters and compressors”, the correct answer is, no he doesn’t. I realize that this could be a rather complicated subject so just some suggestions on a general approach would be appreciated. If you recommend the use of a compressor or limiter please include information on the settings that I might use (just to get me in the ballpark) as I have never used them. If you are aware of any tutorials on this general subject that are specific to the cubase plugins, please let me know.
