Why is my input recording volume too low?

Isn’t that fun?

This is why the closer you can get with your raw recording the better. Anything you do in Post Production has to be done forever and you have to solve all your errors. It takes me between 30 and 40 seconds to do all that, so once you get used to it, it’s not terrible.

That’s like the three volume printed set, “How To Ride A Bicycle.”

Stop here and we’ll take that in a separate post.

I did a pretty good job at Noise Reduction in that post.

Drag-Select about a second or so of room tone (background noise).

Effect > Noise Reduction > Profile.

Select the whole clip (click just to the right of the up arrow).

Effect > Noise Reduction, 6, 6, 6 > OK

That’s the famous “Noise Reduction of the Beast.” It’s just enough to make a noticeable difference and ACX can’t find it as a destructive artifact.

More as I get time.


Wow, okay, I think I got it! I took it step by step and EVERYTHING passed the ACX check! (Well, the initial plug-in check…I know it’s not the real thing but at least I know I’m in the ballpark…still waiting on the home run!:wink:

I was curious about the noise reduction settings. I’ve seen that on the forum here a lot, the 6,6,6, and it is so different from my default settings that I am curious - are you sure one size fits all for this? I don’t have a well-trained ear yet so I don’t know how to adjust it myself (don’t even know what those numbers are!) - so I am just trusting that you all know best!

Thanks so much for your time - I appreciate it so much!
