Featurerequest: Vol < Threshold ==> Roomtone + X-Fades

Post by Klangarchitekten.de »

Hey PG,

we would like to see the following functionality.

If the volume of a recording is below a defined threshold (or Autodetect),
the Audionoise will be replaced be a recorded roomtone using automatic Crossfades.

Or like this: Vol < Threshold => replace Roomtone with X-Fades :geek:

Why would someone want that?
We are producing Audiobooks (singlevoice, straight reading), this means the Voice is always solo.
One can always hear the slightest noise or movement of the narrator.
At the moment we are using an Expander to get rid of the noises but the outcome is not perfect.

A collegue has written a batch process himself for Protools automating exactly this process.
So, basically it`s like a gate, but instead of dropping to Digital Zero it "drops" to roomone.

P.S.: The problem with Digital Zero is, besides sounding awful, that some BT-Headset loose connection to headphones
. :ugeek:

Cheers,
Stanley

Are you aware that WaveLab Silence processor, has an option to insert custom background noise? In short, this is exactly what you request, except this is not automated: you have to select yourselves the region to select, one by one.
This being said, your idea could indded be interesting to add to the Auto Split function, that detects silence periods.

No one really want to select regions afters each sentence one by one in an 15h Audiobook. ;)

Please do. It´s a lifesaver......ok, ok, at least it saves huge amounts of time.

This feature would fit well in the auto split feature, where there is already a feature to zero-silence regions under a certain threshold.
I can't promise anything, but this request is firmly stored in the request database.
