For the vast bulk of recordings default settings are already best!
FILTER BELOW SOUND LEVEL
To capture more or less audio use 'Filter Below' sound level. (Not left/right padding)
Test a range between -30db to -45db. Increase to capture more audio, decrease to capture less. Any more or less is generally a bad idea.
REMOVE SILENCES LONGER THAN
Controls the number of cuts. If rendering in TimeBolt a value of .5 or greater is the recommended value.
Any value less than .5 seconds can result in too many cuts!
For less cuts, increase to .75 seconds or more.
IGNORE DETECTIONS SHORTER THAN
Used to remove random mic strikes, and filler sounds.
A value greater than .75 may cut off important connector words and is not recommended. To preview what's in the red super fast click flip timeline selection.
Left padding is the buffer amount before you start speaking.When you start to talk, audio is defined, so you can be aggressive with left padding, at .01 (but never less).
Right pads the end of a sentence. To catch long S and P sounds, leave right padding at .15. Any value less than .15 is not recommended.
If using transitions in TimeBolt, set left and right padding to .10 greater than the transition duration.
