I need an Audio editing Guru's help.


I have an audio file (a lecture) that needs to be edited and filtered for noise distortions. It was recorded with a clip-on mic and an olympus digital voice recorder. Thing is, I have done what editing my newbie skills will allow, but I want to know if it can be done better (I’m sure it can.) Particularly there’s this humming/buzz/static type sound that is constant almost throughout the lecture.

Thing is I need to be able to learn how to properly edit such recordings as professionally as possible, and as soon as possible, as I will be doing quite a lot of this editing regularly. And while I’ve started my learning curve -reading a lot of posts here and elsewhere, and trying some practical editing, I’m very desperate to shorten my learning curve, and I also learn faster when I learn from some1 else, than when I have to do it on my own.

So is there any audio editing guru here that will be so kind to be willing to school me on some pretty basic editing to a tad bit advance editing, if it comes to that. please know that i already know some basic, copy, cut, silence, duplicate, etc. but when it comes to noise removal, frequency stuff, filter, etc etc. that’s when I get lost.

So mr guru… will you please come save my skinny ass.

Thank you in advance.

Here’s a tutorial about noise removal http://audacityteam.org/wiki/index.php?title=Noise_Removal

Also a good video tutorial on the same subject:
