An ideal volume level makes a great difference on a video from the perspective of both creators and viewers. However, we cannot always shoot a video or record a voiceover for the video at a proper volume. Hence it is necessary to increase video volume and let audiences hear what's going on in the frame.
Today we are going to reveal the top 4 best video sound boosters in Windows and Mac. Scroll down the page to see how to make a video louder with them.

Drag the video file from Media Library to Video Track in the timeline. Click the Detach option in the toolbar to separate the audio from it. Now you can see a waveform in Audio Track.
Step 3. Open Audio Editor in VideoProc Vlogger and make the sound louder.
Select the audio track and click Audio in the toolbar to open the audio editor in VideoProc Vlogger. Move to the toolbar above the waveform, and keep clicking on the +1dB button to amplify the sound of the whole video.
You can also drag the slider at the head of the audio waveform to change the volume of each channel separately.
If only a part of your video is not loud enough, you can press and drag the cursor on the waveform to select it, then click +1dB to enhance the sound of this segment only.
- To increase the volume of a certain frequency, such as a female vocal or an instrument, use Equalizer in VideoProc Audio Editor.
- To reach the maximum volume without clipping or match volumes of different audio files, normalize audio in the video.
Step 4. Export the video with louder sound from VideoProc Vlogger.
When you make the sound loud enough, click Apply in the lower right corner to close the audio editor panel. Finally, click Export above the timeline to save the video with a louder sound to your computer.
