    pitch correction help

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Hi all,

    I have a MP.4 video of my band playing at a concert venue decades ago. The vocals in places are way off tune (cringing) but everything else is great. What is the approach to pitch correction in this case where you don't have the individual tracks but just the video file? Is there a way to use a parametric EQ to try to locate the frequency manually and then pitch correct it in the stereo mix? Any suggestions from all you pros out there are welcomed.

    nothing you can do to correct it I'm afraid, except perform it again in tune. If you tried to correct it you'd have ambience that was a semitone out from the corrected pitch which would probably sound even worse than doing nothing.

    Yeah man, I agree. Likely not possible. Too much information in a full band mix file. Melodyne can change say one bad note in a guitar chord, but a whole band? I doubt it.

    Might be interesting to try tho. PM me. I'll give it a go at least.

    Izotope RX7's Music Rebalance feature might work - it can certainly almost completely isolate a vocal although there will be artefacts. Whether these artefacts are a show stopper depends on the recording and your expectations.

    You might be able to fix it in melodyne in polyphonic mode -- it might be able to pull out the vocal line.

    I haven't used it, but as mentioned above, RX7 might be able to help. Sounds like witchcraft to me... but again, I've never tried it.

    It does sound like witchcraft! lol!

    I am curious though what the results are in the real world.

    RX7 'Try'/demo returns a 404 page. That scares me like witches do...
