I am editing the DV of a wedding. At some points the bride's voice is very faint - can anyone advise the best combination of audio filters to bring out the best - most audible - audio of the bride.

If I amplify and apply filters to improve signal to noise, what high/low cut-offs would you recommend trying ?

Would a Premiere upgrade provide more options for dealing with ths problem?

Thanks and best wishes, JIMP

I would open the .wav files in a audio editing program (I use Cool Edit Pro) and selectively work with the parts that need sweetening.

Human vice tends to be in the 300-3000 Hz range, so filters should not cut that are excessively. But use your ear to try and effect and judge to see what works best for your audio trck. You probably would not want the result to be too distracting due to changes in background noise floor as differnt speakers come in.

You can download a trial version (Cool Edit 2000) from www.syntrillium.com. You may be able to buy the pro version there too.
