Clicks after normalizing

Permanent link to this post Posted by Jackxxx » Tue Jul 11, 2017 8:38 pm

Once I'm done recording a chapter I save an original raw file. Then I listen, clean-up any obvious noise/clicks/do-overs in the track. Then I select a section for a noise profile and apply it to the entire track. Then I apply normalization. Once I apply the normalization I go back over the track, one more listen for good measure. When I go through this final listen I always seem to find quite a few clicks that have be made louder and need to be removed.

I have two questions:

1 Would this still happen if I normalized and then applied the noise floor profile?
2 Is there a way to remove all the clicks at once from the track?

Thank you for any help!

How about we try to get rid of the clicks during recording? Creating a forest of clicks in a voice track is not normal (unless you're like me and create them yourself during reading).

So take it back to the beginning. Which microphone, which connection and which three-number Audacity?
