    Post Processing for Loudness

    There are a few things that are commonly done during "post processing". The first, covered in this video is adjusting the loudness of a clip, which is called "normalizing". The point is to make the clips consistent so the viewer does not have to make adjustments for each video, or during a video.

    The first video covers "Premier Pro" and "auphonic" ("Final Cut Pro 10" is described generally, but no advice provided). The "manual" approach is not covered.

    The second video covers Adobe Audition.

    The third video covers only Audacity. It is best to look at the first video, and maybe even the second video, before looking at this one.

    Using EQ to Reduce Harshness

    This is something I've never actually done and watching someone do it in a video, well, it did not really help me that much. I guess I'll have to watch it a few times and develop an ear for it.

    Repairing Bad Recordings:

    This is close to the end of what I had in mind to post. There are other areas to explore, but I think this and the previous posts cover a lot of ground from beginner issues up to some pretty advanced issues, resulting in a good idea of what is possible, and how hard it can be to get something done.

    This part starts to tackle repairing bad recordings in post. It is not comprehensive, but it gives a good idea of the types of repairs that are possible. Once again this looks at things that I have not personally done before, but in this case, I think I can do some of this, if I used the proper programs. And in that regard, this video uses "Adobe Audition CC."

    This first clip uses the "Noise Removal"
