Hi! I was wondering if anyone could help me. I have some audio that has come through with loads of background noise - must be a mic fault. I am not very advanced in my knowledge of Audition - i can use the noise remover but that's about it. I've tried clearing it up but it's just distorting the voice.

 

I'm not sure what to do - it's for a work thing that's due tomorrow 😞 Can anyone help? I've got four audio files like this - I've attached one so you can hear the issue. For my usual setup I don't have the background noise, just do abasic noise reduction and amplify. Link to audio 

 

Thanks so much!

I can probably improve that a bit, but not until tomorrow - it's rather late here. FWIW, most people have difficulty with using NR simply because they overdo it - it's better to use several passes with different FFT sizes and take only a little at each pass, rather than trying to do it all in one go, which invariably gives far worse results. Also it's important that you use the Process NR for this sort of removal - don't bother with any of the others.

Hi Steve! Any help would be hugely appreciated. I keep trying but I'm distorting the actual voice too much - it sounds very low and heavy.  i'll try doing several passes.. not sure what fft means but i'll try!

It's really not that good, or that clear - sounds like camera audio where the camera really wasn't close enough. I've EQed out some of the boominess, but in order to leave the speech intelligible I've had to go very easy on the NR and use about five passes. It's certainly better, but if it's going back with the video it's going to sound wrong if all of the background is removed, so I'd guess that this is about as far as you'd want to go.
