White Noise Behind Audio

Hi all. This is my first time using Audition to record and edit a podcast I am working on. So far I have had zero issues working with this and have recorded several episodes successfully now. I always work in Multitrack, I have two voice tracks and one music bed. This time around I was working on a Multitrack edit and all was going well, but for some reason the exact moment I finished I saved the episode and very noticable white noise/static/hiss developed behind the audio and is just a constant hiss throughout the entire track. I've been trying to trouble shoot and I cannot for the life of me figure out what is wrong, the audio files sound fine in .wav form by themselves but when they are on Multitrack they have the audio hiss behind them. I tried opening up previous recordings that did not have the hiss when I last worked on them and they have developed it too. Is this a glitch within Adobe Audition? The previous files I opened did not used to have the hiss and just opening them up on Audtion caused them to have the hiss. The only previous file that did not have a hiss when opened on Adobe Audition is one that had zero edits made to it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I was going to go through all the possibilities, but I've realised that there is one question I should ask first: Are you using the Podcast template in Multitrack view?

Oh dear - start again, and under no circumstances use the Podcast template! Just use the Default template instead.

 

The Podcast template is what's screwing you up - as it does with everybody who uses it in innocence, thinking that it's going to help them. It's not going to; it's going to do the complete opposite, in fact. It adds a load of effects to tracks that simply aren't appropriate, and as most of them involve some form of compression or limiting and level shifts, it's not surprising that it has screwed up your otherwise-fine files.

 

If you feel that you want to use other aspects of the template, then the way to go about this is to start a new session with it, and go though all of the track effect settings it puts in, removing all of them - they're probably on all the tracks. But at this stage put no audio in it. This will leave you with a vanilla podcast session with a track layout, but without all of the inappropriate additions. What you do then is export it using Export>Session as template, either giving it a new name, or preferrably just overwrite the original one, as it's pretty much useless.

Oh man okay, thank you so much. Is there any way to recover the audio I have recorded using the podcast template and move it onto a default Multitrack? Like if I move the .wav audio onto a default Multitrack? Or is the audio just going to continue to be messed up?

If you haven't saved any changes to it, your original audio should be fine.

I believe I have saved changes to it because I just attempted to move the audio onto a default multitrack and it still has the hiss behind it. Is there anyway to fix this or will the audio just forever sound like this?

I'm afraid that if you don't have the untouched original files, you've lost it. Rule one of working with stuff you've recorded - always use a copy to edit. Now you know why...
