What exactly do you want cleaned from this file? It sounds ok to me, except for some digital distortion during the speaking. Is this what you are referring to?

Have you posted the wrong clip? This has already been heavily processed.

Yes… if you hear the piece with ear phones - you hear quite a bit of distortion which shows up as an echo while playing on a tv.


Do u think its ok… I am really confused. I have cleaned it up using noise reduction.

That’s as clean as it’s going to get. I can hear a tiny bit of fuzziness during the speech but I can’t tell if it’s distortion or just noise. But there’s going to be no good way to get rid of it.

It may be possible to go back to the original recording and re-try the Noise Removal (use Audacity 1.3.x to do it, not Audacity 1.2.6). That might reduce it even further, but I can’t say for sure.

I don’t know why it would show up as an echo when it plays through the TV. That doesn’t make any sense unless something else is adding the echo further down the line. This sound, as it stands, has no echo.

Thanks for your help!!
