When I record using my headset microphone, there’s a click every 1.002 seconds exactly. I’ve been trying to use repair on every click but it’s quite tedious. Click removal works for clicks when it’s silent, but otherwise not. Is there a simpler way to fix this?
Is this in the sample you posted? Repair will smooth whatever irregularities are in the selection, based on the audio either side of the selection. There is not usually any point in running Repair again on the same selection, in fact I have known doing that to be harmful.
To run Repair so that it repairs a sequence of selections end-to-end, drag the first selection, Repair, then drag the left edge of the selection rightwards past the existing right edge, and repair again.
I think I got rid of the clicks at the end of your sample using Repair. See attached.
Most of the clicks have the same pattern - a run of a few samples where each sample is the opposite polarity of the one before. I assume it is most likely a hardware fault somewhere, but what recording source are you choosing in Device Toolbar? If you are choosing pulse or default, try choosing the (hw:0, <some number) recording device instead. If that is not your headset, open a terminal, type alsamixer, then select your headset.
if you do this, only Audacity must be using the sound device.
