Help wit saturated sound for a newbie


I am very bad with sounds. I am doing some videos and have 2 mics, one from the camera with terrible wind behind and the other one from a microphone but it is heavily saturated. I would like to know if there is an easyway to recover a very saturated file? With the AI now… must be something no?

Thanks a lot

Best regards

I think you may have this backwards. You should create your musical production in AI and then use Audacity for post production effects and finaling. Not create badly damaged sound tracks and then try to clean them up later.

There’s things you can do when you reshoot this. You can get wind sock additions for the camera—Dead Cat and Dead Kittens.

The second microphone can be adjusted so as not to overload. Keep the bouncing sound meter so the maximum bounces are about -6dB or lower.


If it’s windy enough, the dead kitten isn’t going to help, either.

But it will increase your chances of success by a lot.

I think that’s what “Wonder Hussy” uses on her camera. Shooting sound in the desert is not for the easily frightened.
