The sample you sent is completely unfixable - it's just noise. If the rest of it is like that, then there's nothing at all you can do about it, I'm afraid.
no you have to take that one thing where you lower the loudness and take the orange and really lower it. Then you hear the BS. I was up most of the night with it but still don't have it perfect yet. But heard enough to file for divorce.
No, like I said, it's noise. The file you have in your screengrabs has audio up to 10kHz, but the file you posted has nothing but noise, only extending up to 3kHz. And extracting anything useful from an MP3 under these circumstances simply isn't going to work. Your original is a 32-bit 44.1k file, and that's the least we'd need. What you've sent is a messy file that's been through a lossy encoder, which has removed a significant amount of what there was to work with.
When I get home I'll take a look. The one I worked on last night has stuff I wish I'd never heard.
What type of speakers should I use when editing audio?
The regular macbook pro speakers aren't good enough.
There are any number of small speakers that will be better than anything Apple provide - it rather depends upon your budget. Here is a typical list of them - okay, it's a UK-based list but they are generally all available wherever you are: https://www.scan.co.uk/shop/music-and-pro-audio/speakers/3-to-5-studio-monitors
Awesome thanks. I'll have to go look at some tomorrow. I'll try to add a different clip here shortly.
would you mind seeing if you can do anything with the one I just posted named "needs cleaned up"
So you were editing these audio clips. So the forensic people I hired to decipher the audio for you to prove there was no male voices on there where right.
