I have Audacity 2.0.3, and I’m running it on Windows 8. I’m editing a file (just with talking). I’ve done a noise removal on it and I’m in the process of editing the file on a finer level, removing ticks and background noise, etc., but I’ve noticed something rather odd…
when I click on a silent portion of the file, and play, things are very quiet (except for a negligible background).
when I click on the words just before the silence, the silence is no longer silent (there are very audible distortions, hums in the background, etc.) - as though the noise removal never happened.
Just to clarify, I’m listening to the same patch of “silence” both times.
I’ve listened to this repeatedly and carefully; from what I can tell it is not some sort of auditory illusion (juxtaposing talking next to silence). The playback of the background really is different depending on where I start playing the file.
Can anyone help me out here?
