Info & Help Wanted: 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,

Curiously the seller on ebay doesn’t show any sprocket holes of the Terminator strips which would almost certainly show the digital audio and categorically date it later than the 80’s.
The dolby S.R track is possibly 5.1 but looks like stereo to the naked eye, It would have to be laced up into a projector to know for sure. I miss my days as a projectonist!
I would love to get my hands on an original print from 1984, I don’t know how many were ever made back then and very few if any would have made their way over here to the u.k.
