I use Audacity on two flavors of Linux (Suse and Ubuntu) and I also have it on a Win 7 computer. There are subtle differences but it probably doesn’t matter which one I use unless someone thinks otherwise.
I am hoping someone could suggest a method of attack. I have an audio file that I’m trying to extract some speech from. It was recorded through a closed door and it is very low with the background noise (hiss) usually overwhelming the speech. I’ve had some success applying different combinations of effects: eq., noise reduction, amplify, compress, etc., however, it is pretty much hit and miss. I can’t help but get the feeling that if I did just one more thing or did them in a different order it would greatly improve, but maybe not.
I can hear parts of the speech from time to time so I know it’s there and could probably be made much better.
I was also wondering if 1) could I manually adjust the wave form, & 2) would that matter at all (I was thinking if I could it might help.
Any thoughts would be appreciated.
