Wavosaur is now available as 32 bit application AND 64 bit application !
The 64 bit version runs natively on 64 bit Windows system, like Windows 7 and Windows 8, this means Wavosaur can adress more RAM. And of course can run 64 bit VST plugins.

In this 1.1.0.0 version we also fix bug with the VST host, that was causing some plugins to stop working, like the Izotope plugins.
The VST compatibility is improved !

how to recover from a low level /noisy recording

Imagine you’ve just made some recordings using a digital recorder, and when importing the files into an audio editor : the volume is too low ! you can barely hear what have been recorded.

And of course, you can’t re-record with a good level.
This happens too if you get files from someone, and the files were badly recorded.

The level is low, let's volumize it !

Voice removal is one of the most demanded feature, a request that often appears on our forum. Every now and then, there’s a user that want to remove the vocals from his songs !

Elvis Has Left The Building

Elvis Has Left The Building

It’s a dream for karaoke fan, but in the reality, this is (nearly) impossible to remove one part of a song (without making several damages to the song), here’s some explanations and good tips : http://www.wavosaur.com/forum/voice-removal-t1211.html

But there are exceptions ! nothing is lost.

 

 

A very simple and fast technique for removing voice from a song is Center Channel Extraction. We can call it “center material removal”, or “mono removal”, in Wavosaur it’s called “vocal remover” !!

remove ‘center material’

When dealing with stereo files, it’s very easy to remove all the mono sounds : Continue reading

Robot voice in Wavosaur : robotize your voice (only with native effects)

Adding a metalic feeling to any voice to make it sound like a robot is easy.
Of course if you want the extra funkyness you can use a vocoder plugin in Wavosaur
But to change your voice into a nice robot (not a bad robot, this will be for a next tutorial), just 2 or 3 clicks are necessary :

For simpler & faster results, you can use amplitude modulation

How to sound like a robot ?

1) launch Wavosaur and load a voice sample

2) go to Menu Tools -> Synthesis -> Simple

Synthesis tool menu

Synthesis tool menu

3) now use these values for the parameters :

– Frequency : 75 Hz
– Type : Sinus
– Volume : 0 dB
– Apply : “Apply on all current file” OR “Apply only on selection” if you just want to robotize a selection you made on your file
– Advanced : Multiply with audio file  – this is the most important! this is the Amplitude modulation! –

4) click the “OK” button

Now you should have results like this :

 

 

extra bonus more plus (gating)  :

Of course you can try other values for the frequency, if you select low frequency values (under 20 Hz), you start to have a tremolo effect, or gate effect if you change the waveform to abs square
but the synthesis tool is not well suited for gate effect, for that, there is the gapper effect

go to Menu Effect -> Gapper

Gate me !

Gate me !

Now you can select smoother waveforms for gating your file (and apply fade in/out to prevent click noises)
