Re: Is Audio Clipping easy to fix?

it is somewhat repairable through clip restoration but tis a delicate, time consuming art......

Re: Is Audio Clipping easy to fix?

you might be able to make it a little better with clip restoration depending on how heavily clipped the source is. unfortunately, clipping is really really hard to repair (often almost impossible). if you want to post a sample on rapidshare.de we could take a look at it.

Re: Is Audio Clipping easy to fix?

alright that's not too bad after all

I'm looking forward to checking it out, since it only clips briefly a few times this might be fixable

I was thinking that the entire show was clipped

Re: Is Audio Clipping easy to fix?

no Ive been lucky at the fact that the clipping isnt a constant thing. I had a Killers recording that even though it had clipping through Diggrd he managed to fix the clipping I tryed contacting him but I guess hes away right now so if it has a issue transfering would you or would you know anyone who might be able to help ? I was right in the section next to the right hand stage speakers so sound is good

Re: Is Audio Clipping easy to fix?

sounds like 99% of the show is in good shape, then? You might not be able to 'fix' the clipped audio, but if it's that sparse, you should be able to make those few place a LOT less noticeable so that the show is enjoyable to someone who's not listening for them.

Good luck!
