Re: Deessing long audio clips for podcast purposes

A Quality Slider? Ask how many people know what bands are? I can design and build electronics and I'm not sure what bands are. The bands are the number of divisions that the frequency-range selected is split into, analogous to bands in an equalizer. According to Paul L the bands are equal height wh...

Re: Deessing long audio clips for podcast purposes

Universal Settings? ... How about lower limit at 3500 and upper limit at 15000? ... What's a good universal number of bands? Even for serious Essing damage such as this post. To obtain sufficient resolution to cope with whistles wherever they are (between 3k &15kHz). IMO would require the 35 band s...

Re: Deessing long audio clips for podcast purposes

Rather than use a notch, could use the desibilator on the problem frequency-range, (8kHz-12kHz), with more bands than usual ...

May still need a second pass with the desibilator on the (broader) default settings.

Re: Squeaky Noise

1. Audio is from an old VHS transfer (childhood cartoon) 2. Clicking is probably not in the original but this is the best audio quality I could get from VHS transfer Look like the consequence of skipping : a little piece is absent. Audacity's spectral editing tools can lessen the click, but can't r...

Re: popping noise after every note I record

audacity clicks after sound.wav (1.1 MiB) I would bet it's a sound in the room, e.g. the valves of the brass instrument, or a creaky chair / floorboard. The click sound is definitely not digital: there's a hint of room-reverb when slowed down ... audacity clicks after sound, then quarter speed.wav ...

Re: Opinion/advice on how to reduce hi-hat / hiss-static-distortion?

I have a digitization of a 40 year old 1st cassette tape recorded from radio, it sounds "OK" to me, listenable, apart from some annoying sharp almost static/distorted sound on the hi-hat. Not sure if it's just because of old tape / radio recording, but I suspect the digitization has some over the t...
