I frequently hear clicks in my recordings (audiobook for ACX).
The computer is in another room, process is on high process priority, Windows 10. Microphone Rode NT-USB.
I can not think of any source in my recording room other than mouthclicks.
These clicks appear frequently and not in room tone measurements.
I attached you two recordings:
rapid clicks, which sometimes appear and can be removed with the declick tool from this forum
loud clicks, which sometimes appear and the declick tool does not manage to remove them sufficiently
Are these mouth clicks? If not, what else could they be?
So do you think those are mouth clicks?
Any ideas/settings how to get rid of them? (already played with mic position, distance, etc…)
Ideally I would be able to run a plugin on the entire file, without having to mark the individual locations.
So you and Trebor have much more discerning ears than I do…
On a whim, I took Trebor’s suggestion and ran the de-clicker on loudclick changing the step size from 5ms to 2ms. To my ears, the “character” has been essentially eliminated. I do not know the downside of this change.
Thank you for your response.
I tried recording mono, this did unfortunately not work.
Could you please post your full settings for declick?
I changed the step size to 2ms as you suggested but this did not affect the click at all
