Regarding sound acquisition in the rink -- I use mostly audience applause from one camera, and occasionally the sound of skates on the ice. My subject matter expert (daughter) says that if the skates are making much noise, they are not doing it right. I keep a bit of rink ambient sound along with the CD track to whatever the skater is using for music because "dry" CD track sounds unnatural.

There is no sync dialogue although I capture the announcer from a mixer feed. This is so the person skating is announced as they enter the rink and straight rink audio would be unintelligible. On a theatrical production there is limited announcer and almost all CD tracks. I did use the Sony NR plug on a spring show where I placed my own mike in the announcer booth. The compressor noise was low enough to be mostly removable although there were artifacts in the VO track. Maybe Rx would work here ...

A couple of years ago I put this slide show together for the local Vegas user group. Regular Vegas users know a lot of it but new people might find it useful.

Chip,

That's a well thought-out strategy. I like it when people use the brains they're given. Good work!

Ironically, I have a daughter who counsels me as well. It started last year when she learned to speak. Now that she's almost three, her suggestions have become more like commands. Fortunately, she smiles ever-so-cute as she barks them out.

Can't speak from a skater's perspective, as I'm not one; but from a theoretical physics perspective, your daughter is correct about any excessive noise from the skates signaling a problem. If there's a lot of it, that means the pressure from the blade is not melting enough of the contacted ice to create the fluidity ice skaters depend on.

As far as Ozone on multiple computers, is that allowed? I'm slow to buy software I can't use on both of my two fastest computers.

Thanks again for the help.

Brad

I was able to install the Direct-x version of Ozone 3 on both laptop and workstation.

Don't know about Ozone 4 - why not ask Izotope?

Seth,

Izotope just sent me an answer. Yes, multiple machines are allowed, with the standard one owner—one-at-a-time use restrictions. Considering I'm diligent about everything I possess (software, music, videos...) being fully legal, this is good news to me.
