Social Media Content Creation
Make your audio as awesome as your video
Nowadays, when you capture a video using a smartphone, DSLR or a similar device, the picture quality is usually pretty good. But what if the people filmed are hard to understand, if there is wind noise or you want to add background music? Import the video file and WaveLab Cast will automatically extract the audio. You can use the simple-but-powerful audio editing tools to lower unwanted noise, change levels and remove loud sibilants. Create a new track, fade-in your choice of music, use EQ to balance the sound, compression to give it more punch and check the balance with WaveLab Cast’s metering options.
Export in broadcast-ready formats
Now your audio sounds great, you can re-attach it to the video file using WaveLab Cast’s export functions. Check that you are setting the export levels to industry standards — such as -14 LUFS for YouTube — then you can let WaveLab Cast automatically process your audio to that level. Now you’re ready to broadcast to the world!
Capture anything, anywhere
WaveLab Cast is your first choice for capturing environmental sounds, interviews and much more, before polishing it with its onboard tools. You can either record multitrack audio directly into WaveLab Cast, via a mixer, or you can import sound files from any SD card. WaveLab Cast supports up to 96 kHz audio quality and includes a high-end re-sampler. Use WaveLab Cast’s editing tools to cut out unwanted audio parts, use RestoreRig to remove noise and assemble new files using the snap functions and crossfade options. The onboard EQ, compressor, brickwall limiter and RoomWorks reverb bring your audio content to a new level, with up to five global effects and two track effects providing exceptional flexibility for polishing your recordings. Use the processing tools to ensure the finished audio is at the correct level, then export your sound files in any popular audio format.
