    Default Tumble Dryer Mania

    Been doing some taping for my competition entry today. Big dialogue scene too!

    Just doing the capture now only to realise I had the bloody tumble dryer on in the background

    Gonna have to do another take tomorrow now. I'll try Audition to see if I can filter the noise out buyt not too hopeful of getting it clean. bugger! :cry:

    Funny how the human ear tunes those sounds out in every day life.

    As the tumble dryer noise is probably fairly well contained within a frequency range you will hopefully be able to isolate it.

    Good luck

    I know that this doesn't help in hindsight, but we discovered the hard way that it's a good idea to have someone monitoring the sound with a set of proper headphones :-/

    It's amazing the amount of background noise you don't realise is there until its amplified.

    ... how many times have you switched on a stereo only to turn it down. When you switched it off, the volume was perfect

    Btw, doesn't Premiere Pro 1.5 have a Dehummer audio filter?

    It does and if not then Audition certainly does. but then again I wouldn't know what a dehummer filter does so wouldn't know to try it. I just don't have the 'sound edting' vocabulary yet :(

    Audition has an excellent noide reduction facility. You can select a piece of sound just containing the noise to remove then apply that as a noise filter across everything else. Works a treat generally, but in this case it leaves my voice sounding a little 'tinny'. takes about of the low frequencies away i guess.


    But having said all this, I'll try a reshoot anyway. I want a single shot and there's way too much dialogue anyway. I'm at my PC now to re-script it. Take the 5 minute phone coversation down to about 2

    This is the first time I've ever shot a scripted story and I'm learning loads - mostly by trial and error. All my work till now has been editing family occasions and holidays and stuff like that. This is more fun though.
