Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

OK, the clips that I pasted in sound like they fit in perfectly well once I've applied the mastering processing - so panic over with that one. 8-) So, the distorted bits. They are not so distorted that you can't hear what I'm saying, but they just sound harsh and not very nice. There are other bits ...

Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

Hya, Hope you had a nice Easter. Thanks for the advice. I hadn't been using headphones, and since the computer was outside the room, it was difficult to monitor exactly what was being recorded into the mic or where it might distort. (lesson learned) If I made a mistake or heard an aeroplane, I would...

Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

God, another Argh! So, I recorded the audiobook in one sitting, ran the process I needed over the book, and it was all sounding great.....except for a few bits that were a little distorted or had an aeroplane in the background. So, I made a note of all the bits that had been affected and re-recorded...

Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

Funnily enough, I was going to ask you if the donations were shared among the people that help on the forum as well, because I'm more than happy to donate if that is the case :D

Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

Cool. thank you Koz. You've given me so much help that I feel much more comfortable experimenting and changing settings to suit. My sample clip with the new padding in the room, and the laptop placed outside, already passed Peak Level and Noise Floor for ACX and I was only a few DB below RMS level, ...

Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

Ah-hah! Thank you. I seem to recall doing this using Virtual Dub as well. It was ages ago, but I will have a play with some of these tools and see what I can do. Aaaaand, back to my audiobook! The DIY has stopped, although I can't control the trains and aeroplanes... I'm still using the Yeti as my a...

Re: Room Noise Floor -59.6DB Argh!

Hya, My sample has been beset by next-door neighbour DIY for the moment. I'm hoping to get one up today (how much more sawing can he possibly do?). By the way, is there anything you recommend for editing sound on video. I'm putting together a charity project (with no budget) and have to remove a few...
