removing something in background

Can I remove clapping in the background? It is a few seconds I need to remove after editing the track.

Almost certainly not. You can’t take apart a mixed show. You can’t take one voice out of the chorus and you can’t take the TV out of the background of a podcast. The last request posted wanted to take conversations out of a rock concert recording. Those usually fail for other reasons, but he actually got good music. He happened to be standing next to someone who felt it necessary to chat on the phone during the show.

We couldn’t help him, either. Verizon is now a performer in his show.

You can cut the applause out. That will leave the show slightly shorter than it was. Is that what you want?
