Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Normalizing, part of Audition CS6 Essential Training.
Let's talk for a bit about Amplitude and how loud your audio file should be.…As a general rule, you want the loudest points of your audio file to just about…reach the 0 dB mark on the Amplitude scale.…I'm just going to zoom out a little bit so you can see it.…We have 0 dB right there, and again it's above and below since the scale goes…both ways of the center line here.…0 dB is considered to be the optimal level for digital audio, and ideally, you…should record your audio so that it's at this level.…But you're always going to have some recordings that are a little quieter and…could stand to be a little louder.…For example, I have this interview_BD.wav file still open, and I can see that…its loudest point is probably right around here.…
There's another spike over here.…And that goes to about the -4, -5 dB level there, but those were the loudest…points of the entire file.…The spikes in the rest of the file are all between round -10 dB to -8 dB or so.…So in this movie, I'm going to show you the process of normalizing your audio,…
