I’ve taken it upon myself to clean up my dad’s old spoken word tapes but am a bit of a novice regarding the parameters required to achieve the best results. I just want to use a couple of effects I can apply to the whole recording without getting too detailed and fiddly.
Attached is a sample of the original recording plus what I’ve been able to do so far; is anyone able to do better/advise? I used ‘noise reduction’ with parameters 25dB, -0.15dB, 400Hz, 0.15secs respectively, then amplified the signal (preferred this to compression as the speech came out too ‘squashed’).
Using Snow Leopard and Audacity 2.0.5.
