Step 1 – Rip, watch & listen to video footage in sync with audio

Let’s rip a some film footage as MP4s or .movs (macOS only), easily separate the audio from video into stems, then listen back and watch the audio presented as notes on the RipX DAW PRO timeline, in sync with the video.

Step 2 – Swap background sounds & ambiences between video rips

You can then Group sections of audio/notes together, copy and paste these Groups from certain footage into other footage, switching between video rips in the RipList and using the Unpitched Editor to edited out any unpitched audio if necessary.

Step 3 – Save different sounds (pitched only) in the Sound Panel, then blend them

You can even save pitched sounds into the Sounds folder and use the slider for each to blend and replace them with other pitched sounds.

Step 4 – Use a selection of Audioshop® tools & Effects to create unique sounds

Next, delete all unwanted notes then join all remaining notes together as one Sound by selecting them with the cursor, right clicking and choosing Join Selection. Then experiment with using a combination of Audioshop® tools and Effects to mould the sound into something completely new. In this case, we will attempt to quickly and easily turn a firework sound into a unique-sounding, ghostly alien spaceship landing.

Step 5 – Export as a new .mov, MP4 or other file format

Once you are finished editing your audio to video or creating new sounds from the extracted audio, you can either export as .movs or mp4s, or in a whole host of other audio formats.
