Is there any user guide that explains details?
This forum topic is the only "manual" that exists for this effect. Most of the information is in the first post.

Thanks for the prompt reply.
Obviously, I've read the first post, but there is no info about those options.
That's the reason, why I decided to post my questions.

The lack of adequate documentation is one of the main reasons why this plug-in remains "unofficial" and not on the Audacity wiki.

And yet, when it (and its descendants) work, the results are spectacularly useful. It can turn an annoying, gritty, leaking-air reading into an audiobook submission.

Hello,

I tried the De-clicker.ny on 2 wavs.
The results are different for a sound of 15 seconds and 1 minutes.
The result is better if the wav sound is short (15 seconds), the wav quality is a little better if the wav is short.

What to change in the script De-clicker.ny ?
because the wav quality become poor if the wav is more than 15 seconds.

This worked great for me the first time I used it! Now I'm having problems. I am very new to audacity/audio editing.

I am getting static-y crackly noises where the clicks have been removed and I have no idea why.

I tried using the de-clicker on compressed audio, and then I tried it on an unedited clip.
I tried messing with the settings (though it worked perfectly with the default).
I tried using it on shorter segments at a time.
I tried reinstalling it.
I tried returning it to default settings.

:( Any ideas? I am a dehydrated mouth noise queen and I can't make it stop :(

Is it possible that the static-y noises are no longer present in your audio, but are caused somehow by your playback system?

Can you post a short .wav file before and after demo of your issue?

I just realized that I had my "widen repair intervals" set to 0 for some reason. Changed it to 5.0 and it's working smoothly like before *facepalm*

Thanks for your reply!

Hi. I am a not-very-tech-saavy user, and I keep trying to download the de-clicker plug in with the link Paul posted, and I get this error message:

"This file does not have an app associated with it for performing this action. Please install an app or, if one is already installed, create an association in the Default Apps Settings page."

I don't know what to do, but I desperately need this de-clicker. I have way too much mouth noise, and it's very time-consuming to try to edit it out. Thanks!

Tammy
