Hi, I’m new to Audacity and editing audio in general - I’m using Audacity version 2.2.2 on windows 7 64bit
I have some .mp4 gameplay videos that have random clicks? spikes? throughout them, that I’m trying to remove from the audio.
I’ve attached a 5 second .wav file with an example at roughly 2 seconds. Sometimes the duration is slightly longer/louder.
So far I’ve tried a few things with no success:
show clipping indicates no clipping/zero red lines
‘normalise’ and ‘clip fix’ effects seem to make no difference, assuming I’m using them correctly, I’ve tried experimenting with the sliders/parameters etc.
I’ve tried a couple of ‘effect’-‘noise reduction’ youtube walkthroughs, (grabbing the noise profile of a section then applying reduction it to the whole clip)
any advice or can anyone point me in the right direction?
Are these clicks in the original or did it happen during recording? …Of course it’s best to prevent defects
Yep the clicks are in the original, they are from ps3 gameplay recordings and I heard the defects whilst playing, yep next thing to do is to see about preventing them as I’ve had the same issue recording with different consoles and recording devices connected to the same pc.
Yes they are video’s of gameplay, so i’ll try these suggestions. The original recordings were’nt recorded using audacity,
so with so many hours of footage with random drop-outs I was seeing if there was a way to apply some kind of fix to the whole
file, or finding the dropouts in each recording easily.
( Next time I record I will try giving the recording CPU-priority to try preventing them in the first place)
