I’m trying to improve the sound quality of a recording. Specifically, this is an interview between two people that was recorded in a very noisy place. I would like to decrease the background noise as much as possible in order to hear the two speakers as clearly as possible.
When I tried to open the file in Audacity, I got an error message. “Audacity did not recognize the type of the file [file name]. Try installing FFmpeg. For uncompressed files, also try File>Import>Raw Data.” I have no way of knowing if the file is compressed or uncompressed. The file ending is .DSS. I tried File>Import>Raw Data. When I tried to play the file, all I got was static. Then I installed FFmpeg. When I tried to open ffmpeg.exe, a black box containing white text appeared on the screen and disappeared immediately.
I’m using Windows 7 and Audacity 2.3.0.
Please let me know what I should do now. Thank you.
