Hiss and Rumble

Hiss and Rumble

Posted on 10. Mar, 2007 by in Audition

This is a must see for anyone who wants to record his own tutorials. See how to remove hiss and rumble noise from low quality recording.


Removing noise is a very complex task. Depending on many factors one must use different techniques to get rid of unwanted sounds while keeping the sound Tea Cups With Lids Amber Rings Wholesale Tea Trays Toddler Sleeping Bags quality as good as possible.
This tutorial shows what I have to do with each tutorial recorded for for you. At the moment I’m using a terrible microphone and a low-end sound card, so I have a lot of cleaning up before I can publish anything.

    I am an amateur pro bono sound editor for my organization, which stages plays and other theatrical performances. I also have a band in which I play the lead guitar. I must say, your tutorial shed a lot of light on the subject. I greatly admire your skill and your willingness to help people for free also. I wish you the best of luck. May many more learn from your great ‘library’. Cheers!

    Hey there i just watched your tutorial and i just wanted to say that when using the noise reduction plugin if you select the sample you want to collect the noise profile from just hit Alt+N and it will capture it for you with out having to open the plugin then close it to select the entire file. and the next time you go into the plugin the profile will already be there for you.

    Also if you get a USB mic it would virtually eliminate all electric noise from your recordings. musicians friend or Zzounds has a good selection. i would recommend getting something above $50. that would also make the audio quality much better.

    thanks for the sweet tuts!

    Just discovered your site today but now bookmarked and following you on twitter. Your tutorial delivery is consistent, easy to listen to, and smoothly instructed and explained well. Thanks for contributing time energy and resources to help others.

    Hi! I watch tons of your after effects tutorials and have found them very useful; thank you very much for your time and effort. I enjoyed this one too, but I have to say, your FFT size and number of snapshots are much too large! You have to watch out for that, higher numbers do not necessarily mean higher quality for those parameters. Fast Fourier Transform size determines how many bands will be created that will have their noised reduced independent of other bands. A value over 8192 will definitely cause a sort of sweeping echo-y effect because that means fewer bands are analyzed for noise. Also, if there are too many snapshots, you run the risk of lowering the signal to noise raito by cutting out more signal. Try lowering the FFT size to 4096 and the snapshots to 4000, I bet you’ll notice a difference!
