Marching band and live band concerts come out distorted

I recorded my daughter in a marching band and recorded a concert on the mini dv tape, but being so loud, the tape is distorted and music is intermittent. Don't know if there's a way to get the clarity back. I admit, the bass was loud and my heart was pounding, but are there any ways to fix this problem? Thanks. Terry

I'm sorry to say that there isn't a way to make bad audio good. You can sometimes make it a little better but it sounds like yours is distorted beyond help.

Your built-in microphone automatically senses how hard to "listen". Generally, being closer is better but in your case the signal was so loud that your audio sensors "clipped" the sound to protect your circuits. That means there is no signal in those gaps that could even be corrected.

The best you can do is see if someone else had a successful recording.

Filming indoor concert dark lighting

only if engaged!

Just remember this..
there are things called STOPs F8 F2 F12 F16 etc larger the number smaller the hole ( aperture) Smaller the number larger the aperture. in low light you need to have a bigger aperture.

So F8 is a good all rounder but you might need F4 depending on just how dark it is.. you will need to do some tests prior to filming so check it out at home ahead of time

Distorted sound on playback, samsung mini dv camcorder.

Try a DV tape cleaner first. If that doesn't work, see what it would take to get the audio heads realigned. Any camera store can do that for you.

Download the tape onto your computer into a software editing program DV's are digital so there might just be something hanging up or dust. Then when you burn your disk make sure that the quality is set on high and have it double check the data before writting. This should collect the loose fragments and put them toghather.

Sound on Video?

Hey Alymac,
Digital still cameras are not designed to record high quality audio. The mic used to record the audio is probably OK for normal audio situations, but not for difficult recording situations like concerts. To get a good quality video that has good quality audio I would invest in a high quality digital camcorder. What your camera was picking up is all the atmospheric noise that is going on around you. You probably didn't notice it because a concert is usually a loud environment. To get a good quality recording of a concert you would need a mic that focuses where it picks up its audio from instead of from all sounds surrounding you.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
