    Got you. They certainly could have fooled me.

    I'm gonna watch a little bit now, but yes, the voice is very low. If there are other loud sounds in the video, then all that needs to be done it to apply some compression (dynamic) to the audio with a DAW like Cubase or Sonar. Sony Sound Forge can do this excellent too.

    A trial version of n-Track is also available from its website.

    There are all different settings for compression. Just test them out quickly until you find one that is good. Then after, normalize the audio to about -13 dB RMS. Again, Sound Forge is excellent for this.

    I can hook it up well if interested.

    That is interesting. I have never done that before. How exactly does that work. The strange thing is that here, it works perfectly well.

    Nothing too special...exactly as I've written. I'm downloading the 720p file now and will provide a link to 2shared.com with it when done.

    All I was describing is a way to make low volume sound louder and loud volume sound lower. Then after, bringing the entire level of the file up to par.

    Anyhow, Wolfgang must be the coolest name ever. I'm not kidding. I'm a HUGE fan of Mozart, Beethoven and EVH (his son is Wolfgang) - but technical metal is where it is at for me.

    That is very kind of you. Take your time because I am about to close for the day - it is nearly midnight. Will pick it up tomorrow.

    lol ya, it's not a very long process but in the middle of it, the room starting spinning too much for me to continue safely....St. Patrick's Day has proved me to be very much unlike my younger days and it seems that I stepped into lightweight territory. haha

    Ya, so I applied 2 types of dynamic compression and then also applied a very heavy noise reduction to remove the background hiss as much as possible. The noise reduction is good because it works by selecting a part when there is no speaking, and then it knows to remove just that hiss and nothing important.

    After, I normalized the audio to ~ 12.75 dB RMS average. So, this means loud.

    The file can be uploaded to YouTube or played on any software or hardware player, including gaming consoles. 720p in my next post.

    Thank you very much. That was very kind of you. I can do anything with videos, but when it comes to audio, I am a real dummy. LOL

    Will download it as soon as my Windows 8 32bit has finished downloading. Want to put that on a stick.
