Based on the topic, I’m sure you can already tell I’m a total noob when it comes to audio and audio editing.
I have what I like to think is a very simple task if I only could figure out how to do it. Hence my question in here to you experts.
In the audio clip linked below, there are two disturbing spikes/audio glitches about 7 and 8 seconds into the clip. The first one 7 seconds into the clip is the worst one. What I’ve been trying to figure out is how to remove these. Or if not possible to remove them, at least lower the volume of these spikes to they won’t be as disturbing.
Here’s a screenshot where I’ve marked these spikes/glitches when having the audio clip open in Audacity
Thank you so much for the help as well as the example provided.
Will spend some time playing around with this but I already listened to the example you so kindly provided and it was great to hear the spikes removed. I did find the sound a bit “sharp” though compared to the original sound. Not sure if that is related to what you’ve done to the clip when removing the spikes?
I altered the equalization: I cut the bass to reduce the engine-noise, (which is mostly low frequency),
so the result is inevitably more trebly that the original.
Can be adjusted to taste with Audacity’s equalizer, (real-time equalizer plugins are better, e.g.).
