I’m always looking at ways of speeding up my workflow when editing double enders in Audacity and I found this video clip on creating Strip Silences by using a Noise Gate and Detach at Silences. https://youtu.be/CSi2vSu0WTA
Edit/Clip Boundaries/Detach at Silences
I was able to make it work no problem, but I found the transition from speaker to speaker was audible and abrupt. Is there any way of adjusting the noise gate so that it leaves a little bit of a gap before the noise gate is open to let the sound of the speaker in? I think this would then make smooth transitions between speakers.
For my workflow, once we start recording, I click my fingers 3 times as a marker in Zoom and my local recording and we don’t say anything for 10 seconds. When I receive the other person(s) tracks via WeTransfer / Google Drive. I apply noise reduction for the 10 seconds for each track and then the Compress Dynamics plugin. Next I use the Punch Copy/Paste plugin to grab the noise floor frequencies over the 10 seconds and use the Punch Paste plugin to remove all the background noise for each track when the speaker isn’t speaking. This takes quite a time, but I’m very pleased with how it makes the tracks sound before I starting editing, but I’m wondering whether there is a way of making this process quicker using the noise gate and detach at silences
Thanks in advance. I’m learning so much from you all.
