Re: White noise between two frequencies

If you look at the FFT afterwards is far from white noise. It has very frequencies, the lower you filter. The filtering is probably more accurate than the FFT. ;) The Classic Filter effect can make high-pass & low-pass filters which you can combine (one after the other) to make a bandpass filter, b...

Re: Crackling when two separate clips are played

don't think it sounds too great (but mind you I don't know whether that's down to the quality of the vocal editing). 50/50 is not necessarily the "right mix" but the idea is that the total shouldn't go over 100% (0dB). Usually the vocals need to be a little "out front". Try opening the Mixer Board ...

Re: Can't remove popping sound

There is also a Click Removal effect, the Repair Effect, or you can zoom-in and manually re-draw the waveform with the Draw Tool, or you can cut-out or just mute the short section with the defect. (If you mute or cut, make sure you are cutting/muting on the zero-crossings or use the short cross-fade...

Re: Can't remove popping sound

You might have a DC offset. You can't hear DC (zero-Hz) but it makes a click or pop when it kicks-in and kicks-out.

Re: Crackling sound when recording and also upon playback

if I change the buffer length, should I first try going up from, let's say, 100 ms to 110 ms, or move it up more incrementally, such as 101 ms or 102 ms? I'd try doubling it. Normally, the only downside to a bigger buffer is more latency (delay) but latency doesn't matter at all unless you are sing...

Re: Failure to recognize input.

if I plug the turntable into a USB audio interface, it will be recognized by Big Sur and render the mic source quandary resolved? Of course I can't guarantee anything but it should work. (And, I'm a Windows user.) To be fair, the AT turntable is probably 9 years old. Should that matter? That should...

Re: Crackling sound when recording and also upon playback

You are probably getting dropouts . Dropouts are related to multitasking and interrupts. If some application/driver/process "hogs" the system for a few milliseconds too long, you get buffer overflow and a glitch in your audio. Try to minimize the applications and background operations that are runni...

Re: Failure to recognize input.

The RCA cables, connected through a USB adapter, are not even recognized by Mac If you have a USB audio interface with RCA/line inputs it should work. Most of those are "class compliant" which means they "just work" with the drivers built-into OS-X or Windows. A regular little "USB soundcard" only ...

Re: How to make regular sounds into ASMR?

- reduce high volume noises - amplify low volume sounds That's pretty-much the definition of dynamic compression. ;) Most compressors are "downward compressors" so they make the loud parts quieter without affecting quieter sounds. In regular audio production, compression is usually followed by "mak...

Re: What’s Causing this Odd Clipping?

The issue is that when you record in mono with a "stereo" interface the microphone and guitar inputs are combined. The combined signal is cut in half so the mic and guitar can both go near clipping without clipping the combined-summed mono signal. You can use Audacity's Amplify effect to boost the v...
