Bram Stoker's Dracula VHS audio rip



I was given the Bram Stoker’s Dracula, coffin shaped, box set for Christmas in 1993 when I was kid and have recently transferred the VHS onto my hard drive. The VHS looks like absolute garbage, I’m sure that it’s age related as I don’t remember it looking anywhere near as bad as it does. I was however very impressed with the audio, I used a HI FI video player for the transfer and was surprised at how nice the stereo track sounds.

I would love to integrate the audio track into a hi def copy of the film, as an extra audio track.
As I understand it I will need to slow the audio track by roughly 4% and sync it. What software could anyone recommend that I use?

I’ve also read somewhere that the VHS was a slightly longer cut of the film, I’ve watched it recently and didn’t notice any difference, does anyone know for certain if that’s true or not as I anticipate it being very difficult to sync if true?

Many thanks,


I’ve managed to extract the audio and have now converted it to WAV so that I could import into Audacity. I’m unsure of the best way to convert the audio speed so that it matches with 24FPS.

Can anyone best advise?

Many Thanks.
