    audio clean-up

    I've transfered an audio recording from a tape deck to my computer. I could only get it to transfer in "raw" format. It's a recording of a conversation and the quality is lousy. It's full of pops, hisses and background noise. I have access to sony's soundforge program, which I'm hoping to use to clean it up. Since I'm a total newb when it comes to audio, can anyone tell me how to go about this? e.g. what filters to use, format to convert it into, other progs which might work better, etc.?

    I use Adobe Audition for most of my sound work... I will try and find you a link to a tutorial how to remove background (static) noise pops and other things, its somewhat more advanced but if you watch the tutorial is pretty easy... ive done a good bit of sound in my day.... man im making myself sound old

    Check this link out:

    its pretty much analyzing your clip and determining what is background noise and what is not, then taking those background frequecies out of it... If this can wait a couple weeks i will be glad to give you more assistance with it. Id said if it were a song id master it for you, but alot more time and effort goes into true mastering, but since its just a vocal project you can probably do it pretty easily.

    Hey thanks for the quick reply, ShuckyD. I'm in no big hurry, this is more of a curiosity project than anything else. One of those things ya do just to see if you can do it and maybe learn something in the process I'm calling around right now to see if any of my buds have a copy of Audition I can use. I'll watch that tutorial you linked to, and see if I can learn something. I'll keep ya posted. Thanks again!

    Hey if you want to sign up on Adobe.com and download their free trial (30 days) it should have full functionality (or close to) for those 30 days, you can always give that a shot if none you know has it.
