Crunching/static sounds and other audio glitches after de-clicking and sending to multitrack

Hello, 

I'm in a position where I can't re-record this again as it was over 2 hours of audio voice-over.

 

To start, I take a medication that gives me a dry mouth, so de-clicker is my savior most of the time, however, I'm noticing when I'm working with the file in post, it creates a lot of crunching/static sounds where it cleaned up mouth clicks. It's not as bad as the mouth clicks, but it's irritating to hear when I'm working with the file. I run the de-clicker through the diagnostics panel in the waveform editor, usually using the heavy option. When I play it back in the waveform editor, it sounds great! But after sending it to a multitrack, these issues appear. Sometimes it adds a hard click/clucking sound to the end of a hard "k" sound (similar to the sound the little girl in the movie Hereditary makes).

 

Any advice would be appreciated!

 

I'm recording at 48000mhz at 32-bits.

Once again, I'm back to anwer my own question in case anyone experienced these issues.


The problem was my microphone. I was using a USB mic, which has has a tiny little built in sound card that compresses audio, making it difficult to edit out things like mouth clicks. I was using the Blue Yeti mic which I've learned is notorious for producing mouth clicks, especially if you're prone to making those sounds. The reason I was getting crackling is because there wasn't enough sound data for the decli

We'd need to hear a sample - a short wav file, not an MP3.

Okay!

Here is the best example of the issue. This is after it has been equalized and de-clicked with heavy reduction.

I've re recorded and I have the orginal raw versions if that helps. I'm adding the  de-clicker in a non destructive way now and I'm still getting crunching/static sounds. Here's a raw file.

I will have a look at this later, but it won't be until this evening at the earliest, I'm afraid.

Thank you, but there's no need. I've figured it out.

I was using the Blue Yeti mic which I've learned is notorious for producing mouth clicks, especially if you're prone to making those sounds. The reason I was getting crackling is because there wasn't enough sound data for the declicker to isolate the clicks and it was degrading the audio. There are DAWs you can install from Izotope RX to help remove problematic clicks, but that program is around $200. 

 

I went to Guitar Center and purchased a new microphone, the Shure MV7X, and I'm not longer experiencing this problem. Using an XLR microphone or buying  is the answer,  if you're only intereseted in using Audition.
