I’m trying to remove popping sounds and looking at tutorials on how to do it. The problem is, they’re able to delete/edit parts of the track in the spectogram view and the pop goes away- but when I do it, the pop goes away and instead creates pops at either side of where I’ve selected.
I’m a complete noobie to audacity but I can’t find anyone else referencing this problem online.
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 so there are no sudden discontinuities in the waveform.)
