best tool for this audio noise?

I have about a half hour of footage in which there's a sound that's almost like fingers snapping. It's louder than the guy I was interviewing, and happens on top of the dialog. I don't think it's a chronic problem, because I have many hours of footage without it.

I've looked through the FCP X Logic Effects manual, and I don't' see anything obvious to fix this. Would welcome suggestions.

FCPX X will let you use any 64 bit AU plug in.... I recentlyly used ones from iZotope to declick a load of wireless mike splats.

They have a package of repair tools... But note that the Spectral Analyser won't work in FCPX X . The de clicker, declipper and noise removal tools all work great. The de cipper turned out best for my case, yuots might be different. There,s a demo too.

Waves also have some tools ... 64 bit , but I have't tried them.

Was the noise made by a cellular device close to the cables? Even if phones are set to silent you will still hear that weird electronic interference (usually a series of clicks and a buzz) just before the call is received.

Its happened to me on one occasion, so now phones are set to off (not to silent).

Lee, I think I'll try the demo. Thanks.

Simon, I guess it's possible. I did have my iPhone in my shirt pocket, set to silent. It was probably a couple of feet from the mic cable.

I can confirm that the Waves W43 Noise reduction plugin works in FCPX. It's only $65 and provides a gentle broadband noise reduction . No noise print sampling ... the iZotope one does that.

Best

It wasn't your phone. The interviewee could have had a pacemaker.

Were you using a clip-on mike? I have a lot of problems with mens cell phones in shirt pockets or jacket vest pockets and clip-on mikes. Women usually have their phones in bags or side waist pockets and these are far enough away to not be a problem.

It was a clip-on, wired lag, but he didn't have anything in his shirt pocket.
