Hello, Luma Touch. I am new to LumaFusion and video editing. I have spent quite a lot of time experimenting with the app, and almost everything is easy to figure out for myself! I am impressed at how intuitive this feature-rich app is!

However, there is one feature that I do not find user friendly at all and is a major disadvantage to beginners who are absolutely clueless about audio editing and have no idea how it works or what the different terms mean. I am talking about the audio filters. (I do not have any problems with the auto-ducking or audio mixing tools; these are also easy-peasy to figure out; I am just specifically talking about the audio filters/effects.)

Some of them are self-explanatory, like the "pitch," "distort" and "delay" filters (everybody knows what those mean). However, I have no idea what the other filters do ("bandpass; dynamics processor; bandEQ; pass" and "shelf" filters). In addition, I have even less knowledge of what the different sliders do within each filter.

I am a very visual person. I find it much easier to edit visual components of videos, like creating custom visual effects, keying, etc. Unfortunately, I am not at all an audio person. I am completely new to audio editing and the different terms. I tried watching Tammy Sypniewski's videos explaining them but I didn't understand them clearly enough. I was hoping that you could please consider the following suggestions:

1)Please make a tutorial(s) explaining what each of them do and what the different sliders under them do? And could you please make it understandable for those who know very little about audio editing?

2) Could you please make preset audio effects so that we don't have to make them ourselves from scratch, like you did with the visual effects? Remember when you had 3 presets for the same visual effect which preset different degrees at which the effects were being applied to the videos? What I'm talking about is presets for sound effects that can be applied to audio clips; effects such as "underwater" effect or an effect to make a sound sound like it's coming from underwater or in another room. There should also be presets for echo effects (I know the "delay" filter does that, but it would be nice to have some presets for that filter for example.)

I hope you understand what I mean. Thank you in advance for taking the time to read this and make a reply, even if it's to say that my suggestions might not work. Even then, thank you for reading this. Your customer service is absolutely marvelous!

Hi TheInsane101

Welcome to the forum

Here's the story so far:

About 3 years ago, there were loads of audio features added to LumaFusion. They worked quite badly/erratically for a lot of different reasons. So about 2 years ago they were removed and we have been left with what you see today.

However:

There's now 'an audio guy' on the development team and audio improvements are high on the 'to-do' list (no ... I don't have a date for implementation) and as these are added there will be better examples and tutorials

Is there anything you're specifically trying to achieve? I'm sure there will be someone on here to help you out or offer workarounds

Wow you replied quickly! Thank you so much! :D

And the reason I'm asking is because I might start making videos in the future, and knowing how to change the way in which audio clips are heard to match the environment in which they are being played, could come in handy.

For example, I saw this one video of RobHK Vlogs editing a music track. The accompanying video showed a top view of a beach. When the video zoomed in to show the underwater view of the ocean, the music was edited to transition to how you would normally hear above-water sound if you yourself were submerged underwater. This was a tutorial on how to achieve that, however I don't just want to know what to do to make these effects; I also want to understand why they work the way they do so that I know how I can fine tune them(excuse the pun XD ) to suite my own needs as well.

Here is the video that I was talking about: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EVNv_vAjJPs

It doesn't help that I only know how to create the effects limited to what tutorials are available out there for people like me; I would like to better understand how to create those, as well as my own effects, myself.



And I was hoping if the effects that I mentioned (including the "muffled" effect example used earlier) can be made into presets set by you so that we don't have to make them ourselves (or are limited to those who know more about audio)?

eg presets like "Muffled," which use the "low-pass" filter explained in the video with the adjustments already added for you to work off of; the same as what you did with the visual presets.

Below are visual representations of what I'm talking about. I'm sorry that they're so messy; I edited these screenshots on my iPhone 6 (too small for me lol.)

Yes thanks heaps. Those videos are really helpful although curiously I had to keep turning the volume up when she played a sample which made me wonder if my hearing is ok or whether she hadn’t sound edited her own video
Is there a tutorial anywhere specifically on how to filter/reduce wind noise from the microphones of my iPhone?
Also is there any written guide for people like me who don’t listen very well? :D
