My video has 4 sound tracks.
I turned off /muted the Native track.
I have the background Music track and it works just great.
The Narration track is also cristp and clear.
On the Sfx / Sound Effect track I placed a short reading of a text. The original mp3 of the reading is sharp and clear.
But in my video production the speech comes out kind of choppy and halting, like it is getting hung up. Not all of it. It runs about 28 seconds.
The initial part and the end and where the voice does not come out sharp and clear. The worst part is the first 5 seconds.

What can I do to correct this problem?

Thank you ahead of time for helping me with this! :)

Put it into a New Project with only a blank color panel in the Video Track or a still picture. (streach both out so your audio file will match)

How doe it sound there???

I did what you said and I still have the same problem. The first few seconds of the audio sound "herky, jerky" kind of like going down a bumpy road, and then it clears up.

But when I play the same mp3 in my Windows Media Player the audio is perfect.

I'll attach the audio file below.

How about other mp3s you might have about?

(don't have time to dive in on this at the moment ~ file sounds/looks ok to me)

As I said my problem is:
In my video production on the Sfx / Sound Effect track I placed a short reading of a text. The original mp3 of the reading is sharp and clear.
But in my video production the speech comes out kind of choppy and halting, like it is getting hung up. Not all of it. It runs about 28 seconds.
The initial part and the end and where the voice does not come out sharp and clear. The worst part is the first 5 seconds.

What can I do to correct this problem? How can I make the audio normal: sharp and clear?
I tried clicking on "normalize audio" when I exported the file but that did not help.

Are you talking about a preview of the project or a finished video file from the project?

Both in VideoWave and in my final product when I view the video either here on the computer or on the television I get the same problem with that small portion of the audio.
As I said in the beginning:
My production has:
I have the background Music track and it works just great.
The Narration track is also crisp and clear.
On the Sfx / Sound Effect track I placed a short reading of a text. (The original mp3 of the reading is sharp and clear. When played on another device.)
However in my video production the speech from this short reading, comes out kind of choppy and halting, like it is getting hung up. This happens just for a few seconds, when this part of the audio begins and then it gets better.
What can I do?

If you would like to actually hear the problem it occurs about 10 seconds into my video at:


The rest of the audio is just great.

Try converting your mp3 file into a wav file and using that in your production instead.

That might help, you computer is having issues using two different codecs. There is (was) a kb article on this years ago but I can't find it now.

Also double check you audio files to make sure that one isn't overdriving your sound device.

The music background is an mp3 and works just fine. But I suppose I could try coverting to a wav file.

I don't understand why most of the file that is giving trouble is very clear. I primarily have trouble with the first 2 or 3 seconds.

I did not understand this statement: "Also double check you audio files to make sure that one isn't overdriving your sound device. "
