Swap audio channel test file

Postby AVITRY » Tue Nov 29, 2016 9:49 pm

Because the swap audio channel is such an important part of what I do, I wanted to locate a good test clip to run the swap channel effect in Movie Studio Platinum 13.

What I did was put this file on the timeline, then click on the left side to duplicate track. Then I highlight the newly duplicated track, right clicked, selected "channels" and "swap channel".

It worked just fine ... however ... and I thought interestingly, you can't right click the track again and deselect the swap channel effect. Well , you can, but it won't swap the channels back.

I had to delete the second duplicated channel if I wanted to return to stereo.

I'd be interested to see if anyone cares to try this on their computer with the sony movie studio plat. 13 and ... if it works fine for you, could you post the build number of your software.

I'll attach the clip for a download to try ...

Well, I did more experimenting. A few things I thought interesting was there is no audio effect called swap channel in the audioFX choices ... only accessible when you right click on the audio track and select "channels". No biggie ... just very strange.

More importantly ... the choices that come up (swap channel among them) is not a toggle type choice. Which, once again, I assumed. Rather, it is a list choice that you must pick one of. In other words, you can't toggle off swap channel, you have to slide your choice up to "BOTH" option, and then the playback reverts to individual channels as original.

Just odd ways of doing things I guess, but I am liking this program.

As powerful as some of the audio editing features are in Vegas, I still use Sound Forge. In fact, there's a way you can program your default audio editor for Vegas to be Sound Forge. Then, when you right click the audio track in your timeline from within Vegas, you'll see an option that allows you to open a copy of it in Sound Forge for editing. Once you're done editing and close SF, it'll open up the edited audio automatically into the timeline in Vegas.

Thanks, I'm going to look more into Sound Forge. Doing a quick search I found a free version available. Is this what you think would be good enough or are there limitations to the free version that would cripple the final clip?

The paid version isn't really that expensive either, so I'll find out more.

I really liked that titler in newblue ... but .... wow, that thing is expensive. Can't go for that ... :no:

A free version of Sound Forge Audio Studio or Pro? Now that's interesting if it's other than a time-limited trial.

Yep ... once again partial brain cell deterioration and major information overload is taking it's toll on me. I sure did see the free full download listed in my search for the program, but ... as it turns out, it seems it's a ton of people posting how to get around registering the program and rather, obtaining a fake serial number. I'm not interested in that.

I might be in for a scheme that will net me a million dollars if it's fool proof, but fifty bucks? LOL, no thanks.
