  • audio background noise question

    Hi....Hope someone can help.

    I have a Video clip of person being interviewed on a beach. I want to get rid of the loud wave sounds that compete with the speaker. What Edius audio filter would do this? I'm having no luck.

    Why doesn't Edius audio filters include normalize or enhance peaks?

    Regards Sheeba

    Edius comes with BIAS Inc's SoundSoap, which is in the Audio Filters -> VST category if you installed it.

    SoundSoap needs a few second of purely (or mostly) noise so it can learn the nature of the noise. There is a demo video of how to use it here:

    There are also free updates available on the BIAS site, which you should install.

      I have an Edius Flex-i workstation...with Edius pro3 installed. It does not appear to have soundsoap. I also don't understand what a VST plug-in is. The reason I bought a ready to go workstation is I'm technicallly challenged!

      If I buy it, is it possible to install it into my Edius audio filters?

        I'm not 100% sure that the separately-purchased version supports EDIUS out-of-the-box. There may be a need to get a special version of the plug-in.

        When did you purchase your Flex-i system?

          I bought it about a year and a half ago, ...just before grass valley.

          I understand it's not available anymore.

            You don't need a special Edius version, SoundSoap will plug into any VST host, of which Edius is one.

            VST is short for Virtual Studio Technology, and defines an interface that programmers can use to extend the functionality of the host application (Edius in this case). There are hundreds if not thousands of such plugins, many of them free.

            Installing a VST plugin so it can be used from within Edius is trivial -- it is merely a matter of copying the plugin file into the Plugin\VST directory of Edius.

            I was going to suggest downloading the trial version of SoundSoap, but when I looked for the URL so I could paste it into this reply, I noticed that BIAS no longer offers it. I'm not sure why that is, since the product has not been discontinued -- maybe someone found a way to generate serial numbers for it so that the time-limted trial can be converted into a fully functional version, I don't know.

            If you can post a short sample of the problematic material (preferably just the audio in WAV format), I'll be more than happy to take a swing at it with SoundSoap to see how well it cleans up. If you do that, see if you can include a few seconds of audio with just background noise.

              My flex-i isn't hooked to internet.

              I'm okay with buying soundsoap 2 if it's no problem installing and using inside edius. Many times I have audio that needs cleaning up.

                Edius Pro 4 comes with the SoundSoap plugin.

                Before version 4 came out Canopus had a bundle with Soundsoap and Adorage effects called Edius Power Up Kit. Maybe some dealers still have it in stock?

                  Yep, that's why I was asking when the unit was purchased - if I can get a month, it might fall into the Power Up bundle promo period.

                    Okay. I have the Edius Power up kit disc. It has Adorage and Soundsoap on it. They are checked. I'm assuming this means I have soundsoap but it was never installed?

                      I did a file search and found no files named adorage or soundsoap.

                        Yep, you need to install the Powerup disc's software to get the Soundsoap plug-in. You might also have to register the plug-in to get it working.

                        From there, you'll find the Soundsoap plug-in under the VST folder in the 'Audio Filters' section of the Effect Palette.

                          Well...thanks all.

                          My registered soundsoap is now in Edius VST folder. It's a wonderful day. It's funny it was not installed in the "turnkey" workstation and my dealer didn't tell me about it. Now I have to go find out what adorage is.

                            Adorage is a series of transitions. Some good, some not so good.

                              I would strongly recommend the Sony/Sound Forge noise reduction plug-in, or the similar one that is bundled with Adobe Audition. Unfortunately neither of these will work directly in Edius, so you will have to process your sound off-line. Don't expect perfect results in your particular case, as the sound of breaking waves is effectively white noise. Also be prepared to experiment: several passes with say 10 dB reduction each time may give better results than one pass at 30 dB.
