Need help removing Echo from sound track

Hi there,

I need help processing a sound track that is from a video camera that was recorded in a large conference room. It is very echoey.

I use Audacity for real basic audio manipulation but I wouldn’t know a “Nyquist Prompt” from a “Paulstretch” :smiley:

I have attached a sample of the recording. Any help would be appreciated.

Using 2.05



That’s even worse than my echo sample.

I don’t know of any way to solve either one.

People still do this because it’s the only way to get reliable, clear sound.

Number one:

The Four Horsemen of Audio Recording (reliable, time-tested ways to kill your show)
– 1. Echoes and room reverberation (Don’t record the show in your mum’s kitchen.)
– 2. Overload and Clipping (Sound that’s recorded too loud is permanently trashed.)
– 3. Compression Damage (Never do production in MP3.)
– 4. Background Sound (Don’t leave the TV on in the next room.)
