Any ideas for fixing this

This is not one of my weddings or such, but this was done with my handy cam, plain ol'e onboard mic etc.

Beyond the Noise Gate in Vegas, any ideas on how to get rid of the high pitch, which I can only believe is light noise. I did pull the highs down in the graphic eq and that helped as well.

This is a project I'm doing for my boss (wife) and wanted to take what is not great quality and fix it the best I can.

Any help would be appreciated.

It sounds like a consistent frequency, so you should be able to use an EQ to get rid of it.

Thank you

I hammered at the highs but then it sounded crappy, I just want to know the best way, hehe. I'm always never to proud to learn. :}

Starting from an mp3 is never a good thing, but there's a lot more than just that high pitched whine in there.
http://www.vasst.com/Tempfolder/fix.mp3 has a lot of processing on it, but it's far from optimal. Gated, EQ, noise reduction, and maximizing in that order. A bit too much NR for my taste, but I'd prefer the NR over the noise of the room, myself.

That's pretty much the approach I took, minus the gating on the front of the chain because it sounded too unnatural. If the original poster has some cleaner ambient sound bites (or fakes ones from a sound library) that could be mixed back in then the gate IMHO would sound much less unnatural. Although I tried noise reduction first, I went back to notch EQ first to kill the hum. Then I went for killing the tape-like hiss (where's that Dolby NR switch when you need it). I also did some volume reduction (approx -5db) on some of the silence between passages.

It's always fun to try 'klenzing' the sound track.
