@Selina Thank you for listing these valuable resources. They are both artistic and technical recipes.

When you are ready, I hope you will start educating us old dogs by creating your own Tutorials in this section.

Now retired from video and audio production, this week I've been remastering this clip from 2007 for an Easter message on Facebook. With my hearing loss has come some loss of confidence in my audio skills.

This was also challenging in that the only orchestra track I have left is a stereo submix on the DV tape. So I can no longer balance the instruments individually and there is some piano distortion in the loudest passage, not to mention that the flute and oboe don't always agree. I've already iZotope'd that section all I dare to.

Please critique this for me, esp. @rraud, @john_dennis, @Joelson and @Grazie. It is within the loudness range for Youtube and Spotify, but does it need a little more compression? Do you need to readjust the volume for comfortable listening? Is it too bass-heavy? How does it sound on laptop speakers vs. high end monitors?

Reyfox wrote on 3/21/2022, 10:58 AM

@Musicvid. The loudness was fine on my end. I am using M Audio BX 5 Carbons and SuperDAC for desktop audio. No, it was not bass heavy in the least, at least on my desktop system.

Heh don't listen "too" critically; it's just regional theater, but the violinist was amazing.

iPad Mini – Bluetooth – Sony WH-H910N Noise Canceling Headphones

  • No signal background noise_ Inaudible below my Tinnitus
  • Recording Background noise _ Little or no tape hiss. Repetitive “transport noise”.
  • Theater Room Noise _ Not loud at all.

I didn’t find the bass to be overpowering. I would accept some 60s-70s tape hiss to mask the repetitive mechanical-like background.

M-Audio Delta Audiophile Sound Card driving $10 plastic “computer speakers”.  Speakers are powered by USB.

  • No signal background noise _ Very low computer fan noise and my tinnitus.
  • Recording Background noise _ I could not hear it in this environment at a loudness level that doesn’t overdrive the speakers.
  • Theater Room Noise _ In this environment, I more-or-less got the high points of the music and focused more on the video.

The bass was clearly not overpowering with these speakers though my sense is there was more intermodulation distortion, likely, in the last two feet of the signal chain.

Sony XBR-850B UHD TV, audio through ARC to Sony STR-DA1800ES to Polk 5Jr Bookshelf speakers.

  • No signal background noise_ Inaudible below my Tinnitus
  • Recording Background noise _ I could hear it, but I wasn’t as distracted by it as with head phones.
  • Theater Room Noise _  Not loud at all.

I played the video for my wife with the initial volume set to a tolerably loud level based on the first minute. At the louder points, my wife announced that “It’s too loud”. I ignored her and she reached for her remote control.

Realtek High Definition Audio – Sony MDR-7506 Headphones

  • No signal background noise_ Inaudible below my Tinnitus
  • Recording Background noise _  Repetitive “transport noise” was most apparent
  • Theater Room Noise _ Not loud at all.

I didn’t find the bass to be overpowering. This is my normal editing configuration and I enjoyed it more than any other method. The “transport noise” was distracting.

You might use some compression to reduce the surprise for some wimpy listeners (like my wife). In the early 80s, I was working in Reno and came home to find my wife mowing the front lawn with the stereo blasting out the front window. I went in and turned it up.

The bass was clearly not overpowering with these speakers though my sense is there was more intermodulation distortion, likely, in the last two feet of the signal chain.

That's the overdriven bass (on the player's end) plus the clipped piano. When I motioned for "big" she gave me "BIG."

I played the video for my wife with the initial volume set to a tolerably loud level based on the first minute. At the louder points, my wife announced that “It’s too loud”. I ignored her and she reached for her remote control.

My test listener on Facebook had the same reaction and I wanted to adjust the volume midway on my own home theater outfit (I have lingering musician's hyperacusis). I solved it by increasing the compression from 4.0:1 to 4.5:1 above the -18dB threshold (the solo upper peak).

I noticed it was two channel mono and not a stereo mix (is it too late to dock the sound monkey?), so I tried the free Stereo Touch plugin everyone recommends but it made a train wreck out of the big "G" chord that is so overdriven.

I've done all the iZotoping I dare on the background / transport noise, and I seem to have completely eliminated the buzz from the dimmer packs. Adding ambience from the original back-of-house track didn't to a thing that was pleasant. I'm just thankful for the evidence that my hearing hasn't gone completely AWOL (at least to other informed oldfarts).

@Musicvid

In the original audio there is a natural background noise that can only be perceived by those who use headphones as it is in the range of about -37 db. The only thing I would do on that audio is reduce the background noise a little bit. I say this technically because a common listener who doesn't work with video or audio editing would hardly notice this.

Watch the video below and use headphones to hear the before and after difference. I reduced the background noise of the original audio using Adobe Audition. Take 1 is the original audio and Take 2 is the audio handled in Audition.

Musicvid wrote on 3/21/2022, 10:48 PM

Joelson, thanks; however, I analyzed the violin notes sneaking into perception from nothing, and decided not to do any more with the noise floor. I already removed the dimmer pack buzz and house noise. With your 2nd take, I can definitely perceive a little pumping artifact. 99% of listeners will not be using headphones on Facebook. Thanks again for your take.

Here is what I posted to FB.

@set, I do not have 365, so how would I download the sample project? I can log into Hub, but don't seem to have any menu selections. Just the ability to log out.

@Reyfox  ... In View/Window, do you have VEGAS Hub selected rather than Hub Explorer the latter of which which does not seem to have menu selections? Of course, both can be selected at the same time.
