Video: Applying audio effects

Many times when you have video in your Timeline, the audio that comes with it might not just be perfect and we need to fix that. So what are we going to do? Well, we're going to take a look at some audio effects now. So I've got this interview, and let's just listen to a couple of seconds. (Female speaker: We're providing the students an opportunity. It's not something that--) So that's fine. I mean, she sounds okay. It's like echoy in there and a lot of noise, so I might want to fix that. So let's see some of the things that we can do. Let's just select that clip and we'll go into Edit and we'll choose Edit Effects.

Many times when you have video in your Timeline, the audio that comes with it might not just be perfect and we need to fix that. So what are we going to do? Well, we're going to take a look at some audio effects now. So I've got this interview, and let's just listen to a couple of seconds. (Female speaker: We're providing the students an opportunity. It's not something that--) So that's fine. I mean, she sounds okay. It's like echoy in there and a lot of noise, so I might want to fix that. So let's see some of the things that we can do. Let's just select that clip and we'll go into Edit and we'll choose Edit Effects.

Off the bat, it's got two opportunities here. One is Volume and one is Balance. So I'm not going to mess with the Balance, but I'm going to look at the Volume, and maybe I'll raise it up a little bit here, 3.5 decibels, and let's listen. (Female speaker: --is that we're providing the students an opportunity. It's not something that's like tan--) So that's fine. She sounds a little louder, but it doesn't help us with our noise. Let's see what else we can do. I'm going to go into the Effects area here. If I down arrow and choose the Audio Effects, I have some audio effects.

Not even close to the amount of video effects, but these are pretty handy. So let's take a look at right here, NewBlue Noise Reducer. So to add an audio effect, all I have to do is select it and I can drag it onto the footage or onto the clip. I'm going to drag it onto the footage. And here it is right there, you can tell. Now at anytime, I can just click on it and click the trashcan. It'll get rid of it. So let's listen to this. (Female speaker: What I think is great about EDN is that--) It's actually gotten rid of a lot of the noise, but it sounds a little muffled now, so maybe we'll tweak that a bit.

Let's click on Edit Effects, and here it is. We'll press the down arrow. And now this Bypass check box is on most of the effects and all it's telling you is I want to bypass this effect. So we're not really going to be using that very often. Let's look at the Strength though. And the cool thing about audio effects is I can play them back in real time and listen to them. So let's go back to square one and let's press the play button. (Female speaker: What I think is great about EDN is that we're providing the students with an opportunity.) (It's not something that's, like, tangible, like food or toys; it's something that they really use to empower themselves.) So that's a little bit better, definitely better than this.

(Female speaker: We're providing the students with an opportunity.) I mean you hear all kinds of things in the background. And if I put that back on-- (Female speaker: We're providing the students with an opportunity. It's not something that's, like--) --it knocks out most of the noise. So take a look at the Effects window here and you can find a lot of audio effects. And I would take a look at them all and just see which ones you really want to work with, and know that there's a lot of different ways to change them and configure them to your liking.
