How to mute vuvuzela horns with AVS Audio Editor?


During the Football World Cup™ it may happen that the loud sound of vuvuzelas (plastic horns) drowns all the other sounds in your own video recording of a football match. AVS Audio Editor offers you a preset that lets considerably reduce annoying blowing of vuvuzelas and preserve other sounds such as referee's whistles, football fans' yells, sports commentator's voice etc. (if they are present in an original audio track). Follow the steps below to enhance the audio track of your video recording quickly and easily.
