Thread: Badly fixed incar pod

  1. #1

    Default Badly fixed incar pod

    Hello,

    I have used a pod inside my car to record a racing session. Due to a pod malfunction, I had to fix it to the window using tape.

    Unfortunately, I can hear parasites created by the tape in the resulting audio. You can hear the sound here : http://www.bekkari.com/tmp/RX8.sanair.2007.10.14.wav (WAV file, 6MB)

    I really have no knowledge at all in sound editing, and I am trying to correct this audio portion. Can anyone please refer me to a good application and tutorial on how I could fix this?

    Thanks,

    Simo

    Of you listen carefully, you can hear the actual vibration of the pod against the windshield and the tape. You can hear it pretty well for example around 00:12, but it is present in all the track...

    I dnt think it is a problem as I didnt even notice it.

    If you dont like it jus snip the clicks and replace that bit of sound with another copied from a non clicky bit. Easy.

    I can hear it aswell, it sounds like a scratching noise. There are a number of freeware audio editors available that will allow you to zoom right into the problem areas and let you remove them. Unfortunately some of the scratchy sounds go on for quite a bit so you will have to patch other good audio over the longer gaps. Do a search for Audacity, Wavepad or Goldwave. You could also download a 30 day trial of Adobe Soundbooth (very big file) and it has some great audio tools in it.
