Re: Improving gross overload

OK, one last try, this is getting to be a challenge. On a hunch I did the decllip, denoise, then applied Audition's "am radio" effect, which limits the bandwidth and applies some other effects; it seems to give a good tone and reduces the 'spatter' effects.

Re: Improving gross overload

Many thanks for all your effort Battle, and after listening to all of them, I think this one -
ovewrload-nodenoise.wav
is slightly more listenable with the background noise not too offensive as I feel it does seem to help by giving a bit of ambience, & sounds slightly less artificial. Either way they are an improvement on the extremely poor, original.

What did you use to achieve this and are these techniques available to me in S/F 9 or is there a freebie available ?

Re: Improving gross overload

Mr. Vaughan,

Thanks for posting all those variants! Very enlightening.

I find it interesting that the denoise function removes the "raspiness" of the declip function... I never would have guessed that. But, unfortunately, it introduces the robotic artifacts.

I used Adobe Audition CS6, with the techniques I outlined previously. If you have SF9, the clip restoration, audio restoration, denoise and normalize tools yielded this, on a quick-and- dirty try done on SF9.0. Effects were applied in the order given. Work with the adjustments and see what you get....best wishes! {PS - if you want to keep some ambience, use less noise reduction. I took the NR down to 0 in the pauses, to eliminate the noise from the voice. Overdone, as my early attempt shows, results in "robot voice." Fine for Stephen Hawking, not so good for your speaker!}

Re: Improving gross overload

Ok, here's my take.

I did my best to preserve the tone, but overmodulation takes it's toll.
