I’ve been working on recording a clean audio but the noise removal prompt box has changed and I don’t understand how I can eliminate the hissing sounds. Are there any examples anywhere that shows you what various settings mean?
Also I tried to find the plugins folder with the application but didn’t have one. So don’t know how I can get to download Nyquist Bass Boost. I use Windows 7.
Assuming you have the latest Audacity 2.0.5, please look at: Noise Removal - Audacity Manual .
If you don’t have the Plug-Ins folder, reinstall Audacity using http://audacity.googlecode.com/files/audacity-win-2.0.5.exe .
Audacity 2.0.5 has Bass and Treble which can boost (or reduce) treble. Try that.
If you still need Nyquist Bass Boost it’s at http://wiki.audacityteam.org/wiki/Nyquist_Plug-in_Packs_and_Legacy_Plug-ins#Bass_Boost .
There’s a load of information about the Noise Removal effect in the manual: http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/noise_removal.html
If you are using Windows and installed the recommended version of Audacity, the manual is included in the Help menu. Note that the picture of Audacity on the front page of Audacity is clickable, which is one of the easiest ways to look things up.
Although more complex, the built-in “Equalization” effect (http://manual.audacityteam.org/o/man/equalization.html) is more powerful, versatile and offers finer control than the old Bass Boost effect, and is well worth the effort to get to grips with it. To boost the bass, you could try settings similar to this:
