You’ve got it – that perfect track of audio. Perhaps the interview went exceedingly well; the source waxed poetic. Or maybe you captured the tightest take of a rock band. Or you recorded just the ambient sound you needed for your multimedia project.
But when you listen to the track, your heart sinks. Noise clouds the sonic picture.
A commercial website that sells musical instruments called Musician’s Friend has posted a really good tutorial by Craig Anderton on minimizing unwanted noise on your audio tracks. Check it out — but I’ll leave you with a warning. Once distortion or other noise is embedded on a track, it’s impossible to remove completely. So take care during recording, using my previously offered tips among others – don’t count on “fixing it in the mix”!
