Punch Copy/Paste Need an Example

Permanent link to this post Posted by Ted R Brown » Tue Jan 31, 2017 5:33 pm

Audio Software: Audacity 2.1.2
Audio Interface: Scarlett 2i2
High Pass Filter: Shure A15HP
Mic: Blue Spark

I'm reading and rereading the post:
viewtopic.php?p=208312#p208312

I'm not successful in getting this to work.

Could you give a specific example with steps to reproduce.

Thanks in advance...
Ted

Have you installed them and do they appear in the Effect menu?

1) Select some audio (http://manual.audacityteam.org/man/auda ... ction.html)
2) Open the "Punch Copy" effect and with the default settings*, click the OK button.
The selected audio is copied to the effect's clipboard.
3) Select another piece of audio. This is the audio that will be overwritten.
4) Select "Punch Paste".
The selected audio is overwritten with audio from the clipboard.

See this post for information about the options available in "Punch Copy".

Thank you...

I'm trying remove "breathing" and "pops" etc.

After selecting a "breath" to be removed, and with looping enabled, and after Punch Paste I still have "breathing" in the track. Does this mean that the amplitude that is left in a breathing track is higher than the original clipboard contents?

Do I need to select the highest amplitude of breathing for my 1st "Punch Paste"? Or, am I going to be copying and pasting a multitude of times?

Also, you referenced a post about options available in "Punch Copy" but there was no link. Am I missing something?

Sorry, I forgot to post the link. I've added it now, but I see it is the same link that you posted in the first message, so no longer pertinent.

Then you need to copy some "room tone". Sit very still and silent for a short while recording, then copy a section of that recorded "silence" using "Punch Copy", then paste that "silence" over the noisy parts.

What does the statement: "When "Looping" is selected, the clipboard will be repeated as many times as necessary to fill the current selection."

I'm not finding but one occurrence that is removed. Is the effect designed any way to remove more the one occurrence automatically? Or, is all removal (Punch Paste) a manual procedure for each iteration?

That means, if the selection that you are pasting into is longer than the audio that you copied to the plug-in's clipboard, then the audio from the clipboard will be repeated as many times as necessary to fill the selection that you are pasting into.
