follow up https://forum.audacityteam.org/t/how-to-reduce-reverb-or-echo/23062/1 my post here is NOT platform-specific [myself on Audacity 2.3.3 Ubuntu 20.04]
On a quite echoey reverbey phone interview found on youtube this is what i did to lessen the echo/reverb which great results; almost all of it was gone; as mentioned by others it is nor perfect but TOTALLY workable/usable
➊ use Effects/Noise Reduction
➋ do NOT use the Get Noise Profile
➌ set dB to 4 or 6 or whatever you want to get maybe 2 is enough maybe as high as 8 or 10
Hope this is of use to some of you
This is a very interesting finding in that
- I have always heard that you can’t get rid of reverb and echo and
- To use Noise Reduction you need to first get a profile.
Do you care to post your before and after audio (.WAV) so we can see for ourselves how you fared?
Do you suspect that Noise Reduction was using a profile that you had run earlier? For example, did you try this by first getting a noise profile of total silence?
If you use the entire audio as the noise-profile, (not just the noise),then noise-reduction acts like an expander, which will reduce reverb when you are not speaking. But better to use an actual expander plug-in: it will do less collateral damage …
Maybe by not having a profile it is just noise-gating it (since the echo is softer than the signal itself) maybe you could use the noise gate and adjust it to get the same result.
Hello, try this one: Dereverb plugin
