Cleaning Audio Clips


wfp

Question

While the "Cleaning Audio Clips" section of Help for EMC10 mentions various options, it does not provide a step-by-step description of how to, for example, remove crackling sounds from an LP recording. Does such a help section exist? If not can anyone give me an example of precisely the steps to take in removing clicks or crackles?

Type in clean up audio in the search link. There are a number of threads that discuss various things to try.

The issue is that there are no magic numbers to tell you to try. Remember if you are removing click, ticks, hiss and other sounds, you are also removing some of the audio you want to hear. It is a balance between cleaning up the audio and cleaning it so much that you have lost the good stuff. I know one person that expands the timeline in Sound Editor to the max and carefully removes the bad clicks. I'm not that good and personally think that a little click, ticks, and hiss add realism to old records put on CD -- depending on how much and how loud. :) ..

 

That's a long winded way of saying that it is a trial and error. :P

 

You can apply one clean up effect and if you don't like it, don't save it. Keep adding, adjusting and removing until you get what you want to hear.

 

Now the next question is how many LPs do you have that you want to clean up and how bad are they. There are some other tools that are designed to do just what you are looking to do it your LPs are not in very good shape. Same issue applies, clean up too much and you'll lose a lot.
