Default Normalise Audio

Hi Guys,
Just shot a wedding today as much as I didn't want to, Anyway I need to know is there any way to Normalise the Audio on the time line as you render or burn to DVD, As we used a Lapel mike then switched back to the camera mike the audio increased in volume as we switched to the camera's mike.We noticed this when we watched the Video on TV direct from the camera. Any help would be appreciated.

Steve

The best way is to use Sound Forge to normalise the audio. The audio facility in EDIUS is pretty primitive.

Use VST plugin Wave Arts Power Suite 4.12/Track Plug/preset "What Dinamics?"-he is working fine in Edius.There is possibility saving Edius presets with you specific settings.
Fоr final mastering sound,use Final Plug from Power Suite in secondary sequence,preset "DVD Mastering"

You could use a VST plug-ins like a compressor / limiter.
Raise up the lower audio parts and compress the louder parts as in dynamic compression.

This makes it more pleasant to hear when played back but can not match the sound difference between the lapel mic and the camera mic, this needs to be done manually with e.q / tone control etc.

edit : there are many free VST effects, but for good processing you need to use something like TL Audio or TC electronics.
To get the best results export the audio as 48 Khz wave and use a Standalone Audio editor with the plug-ins to process.

Steve, I would suggest using an audio app if you have one, such as Sound Forge. Export the entire timeline as a wav file and than open the file in the audio app. This allows you to see exactly what the levels are and adjust them accordingly. For example, you could normalize the whole file or portions of the file, and than apply the wavehammer filter to set the file to a uniform peak level (-2 or -3 db) with the volume maximizer control. I do this all the time. This works very well. There is no guesswork involved.

You can also give your vocals extra punch by using the equalizer filter. Boost the 2.5 khz to 3.5 khz region by 3 db before you apply the wavehammer or other limiter.

If this is an option for you, and I strongly suggest it, I can give you a nice and easy step by step recipe for great sounding audio.
