Thread: Removing bassy noise from audio clip with Adobe Audition

  1. #1

    Question Removing bassy noise from audio clip with Adobe Audition

    Here's the clip in question: http://vocaroo.com/i/s1xA7Rw9OBJ8


    At around :10 the noise begins, a low thrumming sound. It's probably a car driving by, you can hear a doppler effect. I've tried the Parametric Equalizer with no success. Any suggestions as to how I should approach this problem?


    I'd be willing to use another (free) audio editing program to get rid of it, but I'd prefer to use Audition.

    The problem is whilst the fundamental may be fairly low, a lot of the harmonics are in the range of the voice.

    That was my thinking too. This is a tough one to remove. However, you may want to go in to the frequency editor in Audition and if it's clear visible you can remove it manually. If it's much more spread spectrum then you probably need to live with it and try to cover it up other ways.

    As Tim and David suggest, this one is not easy!...
    You might get some improvement by isolating and notching out different frequencies, at fixed intervals on the timeline. I don't think you'll track the 'Doppler shift' of the frequency. Try the 30 band equalizer in Audition, and look at bands between 160 and 400 Hz. But don't expect too much......This is a little bit like trying to extract an intact egg from a baked cake!

    I managed to remove a little, but I don't know if you find this any better or not? :
