Clicking noises - why and how to remove?

Hi there, After recording one finished hour of my audio-book I'm desperate to find a solution to the clicking noises that seem to be so frequent in my clips. For a long time I thought I was just bumping my headphone cables or something to make the noise myself, but I've been making an effort to hold...

Re: -Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Okay, follow up. After reading through your comments and looking at some other posts on here, I tried normalizing my file (the original audacity file, not the exported mp3 since I read you shouldn't edit the mp3). However, I still couldn't get it to pass, so I tried normalizing the exported .mp3 by ...

Re: -Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Okay, I exported with the settings you suggested. Still fails the ACX after export. The reason I know it doesnt pass is because when I uploaded the first 15 mins to ACX it said: " The audio quality of this file does not meet ACX's Audio Submission Requirements. The Rights Holder can still approve th...

Re: -Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Update - I rerecorded the entire thing yesterday and for only a couple of minutes at a time did that noise show up. I had to go back and re-record those sections, which was a huge time suck. Still can't figure out the noise source, and I even asked my sister to check everything out with me. Nothing ...

Re: -Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Hmm, interesting. I have a Blue Yeti (not the pro), and I actually have been using this: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07H6VJHX2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Recently purchased to try and dampen any echo, which seems to work. I wonder if it's possible the laundry was going...

Re: -Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Hi, Thanks. Steve - I tried the silencer finder and you're right, it worked! There were a couple spots of total silence right at the spots where I'd resumed recording that my own ears couldnt pick up on. I deleted the little sections once the finder pointed them out to me and it worked. Thanks SO mu...

Re: -Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Hi all, Thanks for the prompt responses. Appreciate it. The thing is - even before I do any edits at all I'm getting this error (sometimes, but not others). The exact same recording can have a noise floor too low (-200 db) and another section (taken a second earlier or later, with no changes to lite...

-Inf noise floor too low - ACX Help please

Hi, I am recording my first audiobook and could use some help. I've recorded tons of auditions and done a lot of familiarizing myself with Audacity to prepare myself, but I keep running into this one nasty issue. No matter how consistent my settings and studio setup is, sometimes my recording will p...
