    To quote a someone I used to know.....

    "Recording bad audio is like burning a piece of toast. It's essentially ruined for good. You can scrape off the charing, but it will never be warm and chewy and delicious".

    I'll take a shot at it if you can convince me it's worth my time to download, so quick question:

    Does this sound like most concert videos on YouTube? ie, no bass, a lot of distortion, hard to understand vocals or pick out notes? That is due to a ***** mic on the camera, there is next to nothing that can be done in post for it.

    There's a lot of distortion, but you can hear the vocals and can understand most of them. I was just wondering if theres a way to help make it a little more clear because I have no idea how to do that? So if you could help even just a little I would really appreciate it!!!

    I am not into movie editing so this is just a thought. Could you not load the movies into iMovie without the sound track and than add the sound track from a CD...

    unless it was identical to the way the performed it at the concert its going to look like they are lip syncing. Recordings always slightly differ from the live version sometimes more then others though.

    Your pretty much screwed you can't make bad audio sound good. its like trying to get a blurry picture less blurry.

    I'm guessing that it's full of distortion, concerts are just to loud for mics on most consumer camera's to handle. There's not really anything you can do about it once it's recorded.
