Help With Voice Quality Post-Processing (AT2020)

It sounds perfectly pleasant to me except for the laundromat in the background. Straight Audiobook corrections fail noise and it’s not easy to get rid of it even after I started to throw heavy corrections at it.

You know when you’re in trouble when the corrections start needing corrections. Heavy noise reduction will pass ACX, but just barely. I applied a Notch Filter to get rid of the one single electric motor tone (120Hz—you’re in the US, right?) and that threw off the ACX Peak reading. And round and round…

I’m posting the work I got after simple ACX corrections but before Noise Reduction. Turn the volume up on the last two seconds. I’m not kidding. I have a laundromat that sounds exactly like that.

This is the tool collection I’m following.
