Posted this question in Adobe Premiere group but received no replies.
I am pretty new to Adobe products. I am performing a voice-over on a 30-min movie using Adobe Premiere. I am looking for an option, where, I can replicate the audio patterns of the original movie to my voice-over. In short, I am expecting that my voice-over should sound exactly as the voice in original movie. I am not sure if this is doable with Premiere or Audition.
Audition has a facility to align speech automatically (have speech on a master track, retime the second track so that it tracks the master) but that's about as far as you can go with this. You can't 'grab' sound effects from a mixed dialog track - mixed recordings are exactly what they say they are - mixed. Trying to undo that is like unbaking a cake. It's sometimes possible to remove center channel speech from a stereo recording, but if there's any reverb on it, that will remain in the original - and anything else panned dead center will also be lost. even software like Celemony's Melodyne (which is very good at harmonic analysis) struggles with things like this involving speech rather than music.
Thanks Steve. It seems that my current voice-over is very audible and easy to understand. I may break things in my recorded audio if I attempt to further enchance it (which I think is not required at the moment).
Having said that, is there a possibility to match the waveforms from two audios in Audios? Because of course, the movie was recorded with normal voice but a software was used to give it a cinematic sound effect. I was looking for that option to auto select a cinematic sound effect kind of option.
At a minimum, you'd need to know what software was used, and what the settings were before you could begin to replicate this. Usually it involves compression - which will reduce the dynamic range, and means that the overall level can be higher. It's useful on films, because you can set a level for dialog and pretty much forget it - and just match everything else to it.
