How Do I Replace Background Sound On My Finished Project.

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

This is the first time I have tried to use the Roxio Sound Editor.

 

Whilst changing the existing back-ground sound to something more suitable may be simple to do I am finding it hard to come to grips with.

 

The existing background music on the (almost finished) conversions is quite distorted so I would like to replace that music with something more suitable.

 

I have searched the site for some help on this but came up with very little that appeared to be relevant.

 

I realise that I am being overly cautious but I would be most grateful if some kind person who is well versed in the procedure would point me in the right direction - or to some existing posts on this subject.

 

Alternatively, be kind enough to jot down some 'one liners' that would steer me along the process. I realise I am asking a lot but I would be extremely grateful for your help.

 

Many thanks in anticipation.

 

Frank

What program are you using? As far as I know, VHS2DVD 3 does not have any Sound Editor associated with it.

Yes, Sound Editor is included...

 

As I understand, you want to add/replace audio in your production. What audio?

 

Overwrite/replace the existing audio of the capture? Add to it?

Overwrite/replace the Menu Audio?

 

Either way, I will have to tinker with it to see what can be done ;)

Hello again Digital Guru.

 

Thank you for taking the time to respond - I did determine without doubt that the Roxio Sound Editor is part of the VHS2DVD program. However I may have led you astray by referring to it as Roxio Sound Editor instead of Sound Editor.

 

Lo And Behold when I got back to answering your post I see that my friend has already established that above.

 

Non the less - thank you for your interest - it is appreciated.

 

Kind regards,

 

Frank

Hello Jim_Haden,

 

Thank you for the post - as usual I appreciate your interest.

 

I have almost completed my conversions the average length of the conversions is around 20 minutes - some as low as 10 minutes the rest have a maximum of 30 minutes.

 

Some of the conversions have quite poor sound quality. The majority of these have background music without dialogue.

 

I was hoping I could remove all the existing sound then replace it with better quality background music.

 

As for your query: "Overwrite/replace the Menu Audio"

 

I confess to not knowing what you mean by that !! - I am getting older Jim - although everybody is I suppose.

 

Thanks again for your help

 

Kind regards

 

Frank

It looks like there is no way to add an audio file to EVD...

 

There are 3rd party products that will but I cannot recommend any here.

Where do you see Sound Editor within VHS2DVD 3?

Both on the site here (music) as well as in my Start Menu:

As the USB Capture device will capture both video as well as audio, Sound Editor is thrown in to capture and edit audio captures.

 

You would think they would taunt it some more in the advertising :wacko:

Yes, I have that too but it has really nothing to do with VHS2DVD. It can't be used with VHS2DVD is what I am saying

No save! Sound Editor is withing the Easy VHS 3 Suite

 

The OP is using Sound Editor to edit the background that he want to use in place of the existing audio track. Sadly there is not a way within the Suite to apply that audio to the clip :(

 

I gave his a solution via the Messenger and that is what counts not trying to pick my posts apart -_-

Hello,

 

Digital_Guru is correct, A Roxio sound editor is part of the program that I bought a couple of years ago. After installation of the program I finished up with two short-cut icons - one for Roxio Easy VHS To DVD 3 and one called Sound Editor.

 

Thank you Jim for the advice and solution you gave - it is most appreciated.

 

Regards

Hell Jim,

 

My utmost apologies for being absolute dill. (Australian slang for a fool or idiot).

It was a breeze to delete the existing sound track; however, I am having a great deal of trouble trying to insert another piece of music on the video to replace the deleted one. I would be most grateful for some pointers on how to go about this.

I hate asking you this but I am obviously missing something that is possibly staring me in the eye. However, I am continually going through the same process - with the same result - failure to create a new sound track on the snippet I am testing.

 

​I am making the assumption that I use the same software to place the new sound track on the original mpg file.

 

​Once again apologies for the trouble I am causing you.

 

​Kind regards

 

Frank

Guess that makes me a dill as well :huh:

 

Within Sound Editor or the EVD Editor I have no idea! There are some here that are much better than I am at Audio. Hope one or two will drop in.

 

You may want to consider better software. The Creator line will have an editor that allows for adding as many Overlays (audio and video) as you want. To be honest, the Creator 2012 is one of the best and the NXT 3 is a close runnerup. The last two, NXT 4 & 5 stink! The editor is still there but the DVD Authoring software was taken from under the barrel.

 

A little shopping around for an out of production version is in order if you go this way. If you go used, MAKE SURE the seller have a valid License Key.
