In Soundbooth CS4 New Features, Bruce Williams discusses some of the changes and improvements made to this popular audio editing tool. He explores the new multitrack environment in detail, including how to extract and import audio tracks from a video file, and how to use Snapshots to safely and easily experiment with different editing techniques and compare the results. Bruce also works with the new beat detection and display features, and discusses their value for creating loops. Exercise files accompany the course.
OK, for this movie I'm using a WAV file called sample dialogue3, which you'll find in the exercise files folder, and when you hear it you'll understand why it is the way it is. (Recording of Bruce Williams: So here's my sample dialogue, which could very typically be shot on a microphone and video camera with the microphone only plugged into one channel of the two audio channels on the camera. And of course it's all on one side.) And how many of you have seen that happen once too often? Yup. OK. And what we can do now in Soundbooth that we couldn't do before is to split this stereo track up into two mono tracks and we just right-click inside the waveform and go Insert Channels into New Multitrack File and what Soundbooth will do is copy each of those channels to a separate track in the multitrack and then we can throw away the silent track because we don't need that and then we're just left with our mono dialogue and what we can do is export that as a multitrack mixdown and I'll just call it sample3mono.
And we can then say, give it to me mono. Or you could leave it as a two track stereo if you wanted to. I got 44.1. Click on OK. And there we go. We now have our dialogue dropped back to a mono track. Or alternatively, like I said, we could have mixed it out as a two track mono file so it was compatible with any stereo tracks that we were using, if we had so desired.
