I'm sure someone here knows the answer to this!

I have a short video of my six year old grandson improvising some blues lyrics with me playing guitar. I told him I would post it on youtube and he is quite excited about that.

What I would like to do is extract the audio so I can master it with Ozone, then add the new audio file back in the video, what software would I need to do that?
Preferably free but I don't mind spending some money if I need to.

I've used RealBand to extract audio from an MP4 before, but I don't remember if I had to install a plugin first.

Also Audacity can do it after installing a library as shown in this video

But he needs to add the audio back, meaning video software.
Pat; you animate, what would you recommend on the cheap?

Dave,

I've been a fan of OpenShot in Ubuntu for a longtime. It's open source software (i.e. totally free).

I see that it's now available for Windows, too (32 and 64 bit). I'm presently downloading the the Windows version to install.

https://www.openshot.org/

What I like about OpenShot is that it's a multitrack video editor and for those of us who are used to using DAWs, it behaves pretty much the same except that it's video and audio.

What I discovered....

Quote:
It's possible to separate the audio and the video. The audio could then be modified and recombined with the video. (It's achieved by having two tracks where one has video enabled and audio disabled and the other has audio enabled and video disabled -- accessed via Properties.)

Regards,
Noel

Noel, thanx so much for this. I don't do much in video, yet, but this looks as good as some of the purchased software.

Dave and Mario,

I'm also interested to try the Windows versions since I've only used the Linux version up until now.

If it helps, you'll probably find it better to view the file as a waveform rather than a thumbnail. This makes working with the file much like using a DAW (as mentioned above).

All the best with it!
Noel

I'm late to the replies about video editors... but I use HitFilm. It has a free version which is VERY powerful.
It can also be used to export the audio separately for editing, then you can import it again after doctoring.

Unlike most free video editors (which typically let you combine images or video clips sequentially and blend them together in a variety of ways) Hit Film also lets you create composite scenes (in which many elements are layered together to create a totally new scene fabricated from pieces... like the CGI scenes in movies)

For example, Adobe Premiere is basically a video editing product, but its companion is Adobe After Effects, which is a compositor. Hit Film is like getting both Premiere and After Effects for free in one package.

This can be done by BIAB for the last several years. Open <mp4> file and then select <Video> from the view toolbar. It will decompress the mp4 audio to a WAV file. After editing, it will re-sync the audio and video.

Thanks Noel for OpenShot ! will check that out.

Also if you want to do it all in one with Ozone, Reaper will do it, demux video/audio, add FX to audio and render video to mp4.

Video: Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows® New Features!

Our "Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows®! New Features, RealTracks, and other content!" video is now ready! Get to know all about the newest features in Band-in-a-Box® 2019: Click here to watch...

We have listed a table of contents for this video, you'll see it within the YouTube video description, or by visiting this forum post.

RealBand 2019 - A New Look!

Have you opened up your RealBand 2019 yet? You may notice that we've given it a fresh new look! In fact, there are now 3 different looks to RealBand.

See for yourself! Within the program, visit Options | Icon Set and choose from: Classic, Modern 1, or Modern 2.

Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows - Choosing to Run 64-bit or 32-bit

We heard you! With the release of Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows we've included the BRAND NEW 64-bit version of Band-in-a-Box®, which works well with the latest plugins and 64-bit OS features! Because not everyone has a 64-bit computer, we include both the 64-bit and 32-bit versions with your purchase - you choose which one to use!

By default, when you install your Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows the 32-bit version will run.

The steps to run the 64-bit version are simple! Just head to your "bb" folder and choose the "bbw64" icon - you'll notice that the Band-in-a-Box® "splash screen" will state "64-bit" as the program opens.
(and if you open the 32-bit version, the "splash screen" will state "32-bit")

Still not certain which version you're running? Within the program, go to Help | About Band-in-a-Box - it'll either state:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
64 bit application

or:

Band-in-a-Box® for Windows
Version 2019 (604)
<--- the number in brackets is the build number - this will change as new patch updates are released
32 bit application

We hope everyone who can is enjoying their Band-in-a-Box® 2019 64-bit version for Windows!

NEW! Style-style-style Additions and Enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019 for Windows!

With over 64 new features and enhancements in Band-in-a-Box® 2019, we've made sure to add to, enhance, and update some of the Style features within the program: StylePicker, StyleMaker, and Song Titles browser within the StylePicker!

StylePicker Enhancements:
-If the style list needs rebuild, it tells you that within the StylePicker, instead of a message that requires a response.
-The rebuild is faster than before by 75%. It takes 1/4 of the time now.
-While the style list is being rebuilt, you can see the progress inside the StylePicker.
-The style list can be filtered by a specific RealTracks/RealDrums/MIDI SuperTracks or RealTracks/MIDI SuperTracks in a certain number range.
-You can filter the style list by a specific Xtra Styles PAK.
-The dialog to select an Xtra Styles PAK has a button to take you to the PG Music website that shows information about Xtra Styles PAKs.
-The StylePicker can list all styles (including N/A styles) in the default display.
-The Set number display is improved, including sort by type and Xtra styles.

StyleMaker Improvements:

-The new MIDI velocity offset allows you to make styles with altered loudness for MIDI tracks.
-Styles can be saved with information like a memo, examples, genres, and more, which will be displayed in the StylePicker.
-You can import information from another style. This is useful when you are making a similar style.
-A style can have a huge number of RealTracks (up to 70!) because the StyleMaker now supports RealTracks multi/medley feature, which allows a single track to have up to 10 simultaneous playing of RealTracks.

Song Titles Browser Enhancement

-We’ve added 300 more song titles including requests from users, so there are now over 10,600 titles.
-The chord density filter is available, and it’s also displayed in the memo.
-The chord complexity filter is available.
