  • Audio Compressor

    Just wondering which the best audio compressor is to use with Edius 5.6. A lot of times I hook into sound systems for audio and get too big a variation in volume, thus need to rubber band certain points. Please let me know what your experience has been with compressors and where I can download them.

    Thanks,
    Ted

      Try a VST compressor, there are a few free ones out there a Google search should find them.
      Or process your audio in something like Audition, Pro Tools or Soundforge, they do a really good job in the right hands.
      System 1 - Win7 64/Edius 5.51/Asus P8/8Gb RAM/RAID0/i7 2600K OC/nVidia Quadra 600
      System 2 - Win XP/Edius v4.61/Asus P5 DH Deluxe/4Gb RAM/RAID0/Quad Core 2.4Ghz Q6600/nVidia 9800GT 512Mb/NXHD + other stuff

            Try the C3 Multiband Compressor

            Although it's not without fault (within Edius) I use it daily with great results.
            The presets re usually enough to get by.

              Kjaerhus Audio also has a pretty decent (and free) compressor that works with any VST host like Edius:

                Thanks guys. Looks like I have a lot of choices. I'll take a look at them and decide from there.

                      Audio Compressor

                      I tried the Levelator. It works great for what it is designed to do and is fast. The only drawback is that it makes everything the same volume, and so does not work for music and singing performances. I'm going to try one of the other suggested ones.

                          Ah..... I did not know music was involved. Levelator is good for speach.
