after saving the song into the computer i tried to remove the clicks with the click removel option.i played a little of the track with the preview button i noticed that the song sounded the same…the preview is supposed to tell how a song will sound at that setting but it sounded the same where ever i previewed it.what am i doing wrong?thanks.
Which version Audacity?
What operating system?
audacity version 1.2.6…for xp and intenet ex 7
Try upgrading to Audacity 1.3.7
will beta work 4 me?i installed it but still the preview on the cllick remover doesnt tell me anything…maybe im doing it wrongs.lets see i select all to highlight the song…its a dark gray.this enables the different options including the click
removal…ok i move the slider and hit the preview button and theres no differance in the sound…did i do it wrong?
where in preferancces is the option to adjust the preview ?
i looked in the effects option there is no repair tool listed…is it in the bata one?/
The 1.3 version has very many improvements over the old 1.2.6 version. All of the regular forum writers now recommend the 1.3 version.
i went back to the earlier audicity(not beta)and it seems to more suited 4 me being a newbie…ok reguarding the click remover
i tried highlighting on the click itself hit click remover let it preview than hit process…i didnt see that it was doing anything…
i didnt see the message saying "removing pops and crackle"and then you see that bar in blue going across.nothing happens.it
only processes with that message saying “removing pops and crackle” when i hightlight the whole song.is it actually doing anything when i see this “removing pops and crackle”?i think beta is a little better at this but at this point this earlier version
is better 4 me.
ps…i think im doing it right with this early audicity its just this click remover thingy.
Although 1.3 has some extra features, in a lot of ways it is actually easier to use than the 1.2 version. I really do recommend that you try it. You can have both versions installed but can only run one at a time. Audacity 1.3 can open 1.2 projects, but Audacity 1.2 can not open 1.3 projects.
To use the click remover, zoom in quite close so that you can see the clicks (thin spikes) and select a small area of clicks. Apply the Click remover effect (not preview) and you should see the spikes disappear, or at least shrink. If the spikes appear to be unchanged, use Ctrl+Z to “Undo” (or select “Undo” from the edit menu) and reapply Click removal with more aggressive (more sensitive) settings.
ok ill try the click remover based on your instructions…thanks…
