I am a novice looking to do some basic editing of a bunch of family camcorder videos I recently converted to digital format on my PC. Most of what I want to do I’d call pretty basic (cutting long video into separate clips, adding captions, etc.). One aspect– the removal of some annoying voice segments while retaining the accompanying video sections– I’m guessing may be more complicated. I’m trying to figure out which programs will enable me to do this but am confused as to what having separate audio tracks really means. Is it strictly to manipulate different audio clips one is adding to a project when building a video, OR is it pertinent to my goal of deleting audio segments from one standalone video (i.e., I’m not adding different video and audio clips together from different sources)?
Hindenburg Pro is also an audio editing software that’s worth mentioning. It’s cross-platform and works with both Windows and macOS. Plus, it comes with non-destructive, multitrack recording. Hindenburg Pro can also import 24-bit audio files and even work in 24-bit sessions. Other than that, the DAW brings in a large number of effects including compressors, EQs, loudness meters, and support for third party plugins so you can expand your effects-set to the extent of your imagination. With the automatic EQ feature in Hindenburg Pro, you can let the software automatically set up your preferred voice profile without having to tweak things too much, and once you’re done editing your audio, Hindenburg will let you export the project to a variety of formats including mp3, AIFF, and even Apple Lossless.
