I do not know Audacity very well and am trying to help out with the ‘clean-up’ of the audio on a (non-professionally) recorded program. No one is expecting ‘pro’ results, believe me
There are just some parts of the audio where the presenter sort of ‘cackles’ (laughs) and it’s a painful-to-hear sound. He does this off and on throughout the entire program (which is all-day Sat-Sun program — probably about 6 hours worth of spoken audio) .
What I am looking for is a broad brushstroke of an ‘Effect’ or Setting that will trim (lower) those extreme sounds down just enough without making the audio muffled or unlistenable. Ideally a setting I can apply to the entire recording, preview the correction, and export the audio. One and done.
Can anyone point me in a direction to go on this?
I am doing this on a Mac laptop using OS X 10.12.6 (Sierra) and Audacity 2.3.2
Thank you so much!
