I was sure that I had seen this somewhere but I can't find it. MusicMaker has a preset audio effect called Dub Vinyl, but it sounded terrible, not what I was expecting. The closest I could find was in Samplitude Music Studio, in Independence, called Vinylizer, but I could not figure out how to get to it. The manual says:
Independence‘s Vinylizer includes three different vinyl types (33, 45, 78 tempo) to simulate
the sound of old recordings. Beside the different tempos you can additionally choose
between three categories:
1 = new recording
2 = old recording
3 = very old recording
I found nothing in Audio Cleaning Lab (various versions). So, unless someone else can find something else, there is nothing easily available in the Magix programs to simulate vinyl.
You may want to try third party plug-ins. Here is a freeware example. I tried this by adding to the VST plugins folder: C:\Program Files (x86)\VSTPlugins\MAGIX\Third party. Then in VSCL, change the VST plugin path to the main folder above. Then select the object, Effects (top menu), Plug-ins, then go and find Vinylizer. It works.
Let us know if you find something else that works, or if you have problems getting the VST plugin to work.
Hello, browj2, thanks for your reply. It will take me some time to work through your suggestions, especially as I'm not experienced with audio editing and cleaning. It was Audio Cleaning Lab, bundled with M EP 2014 plus, which got me looking at audio cleaning etc. I wanted to simulate 1940's sound quality as I've made a video involving the 40's. As you say, there seems to be nothing in Magix which will do it. I'll copy your advice and try each method and will post here when I've worked through it.
Which version of Audio Sound Cleaning Lab do you have? It may make a difference in adding a plugin or not. If you have Video Soumd Cleaning Lab, then that has a different problem. If you have ACL2014 then you may have bigger problems.
Hi John, it's Magix Video sound Cleaning Lab 2014. Seems like I'm in trouble with that! I have tried to use the third party plug ins but really got nowhere, as indicated I have no real knowledge of these procedures and I got no further than the download. I do have someone coming around in a couple of days to give me a hand with the download. I did find some vinyl effects on U-tube and if all else fails I could resort to taking a video of the screen with my camera, import it in to the editor, separate the sound from the video, then use that sound. It may give me imperfect sound but in a way, that's the objective. It's a bit simplistic and not at all technical but it might be an answer! However, I would prefer to know how to do it technically. I'll let you know how I go on but I'm sure I'll be back for further advice.
Hello again John, I thought I should let you know that I got no further with the help I was getting first hand. I have eventually settled for my simplistic approach by recording (with the camera) a sound effect from the screen then splitting the sound from the video. It worked quite well with the 30s/40s sound I wanted for my video involving that period. Perhaps the various video/audio programmes should consider adding such effects.
