I have strange issue with my records. When I record, there in waveform some strange sounds, like a “click” ,recording too. I add a sceen, so if you can help me with this, I will be glad for you help. And apears too, when I record, but not talk. I am using microphone Plantronics with external sound cart for USB.
Possibly a driver-conflict : one driver can interrupt another , causing the click .
You could test if the problem is specific to Audacity by using windows built-in sound recording device.
If the click problem persists when using Windows sound recorder, then Audacity can be ruled out as a cause of the click.
Thank you for all suggestions but I still can not resolve this “click” sounds. I have old headsets with microphone (mini jack) and it is everything ok. But when I connect Plantronics for USB, I have this strange sounds. I am tried disable basic device sound card, antivirus, wi-fi , restart computer, change some settings in preference, but this sounds not disapears.
Any suggestions before I go to the service guarantee?
However you may be able to prevent the plosive clicks happening in the first place using a pop-shield , ( an improvised one can be as good as a store-bought one).
BTW you posted a WAV-format audio file , but it sounds like it has lossy compression artefacts , as if you’d (repeatedly?) saved your recording in the MP3-format. If you want the highest sound quality you should not use MP3-format when you make your project. Only use MP3-format in the final step when making a copy to send to your customers.
[ NB: there is a quality “bit-rate” setting for MP3’s: the higher the quality the bigger the file ]
I am suprised that saying “g” “t” “p” is cause this strange sounds. You can be right. But is strange, that my “no name” old microphone (on headset) is better than Headset Plantronics C320 USB. I think, that USB can be cause, too.
With pop-shield can be problem, because I have headset with microphone, so I can add there any pop-shield.
Anyway, plugin De-Clicker deleted 80% strange sounds and for now records is much cleaner. Big than you for this. Maybe You have another plugins, that help with cleaning records from unexpected sounds?
And than you for advice with mp3-format and wave-format.
