Audio suggestions

Good afternoon,

My audition program is toast so I am going with the Vegas Audio, I am not that familiar with it. I have been expirimenting for a few hours to no giant effect.

I attached a clip of a samll music clip, rain.

I would like to take out the background hiss I hear. More importantly I want to reduce and lower the tinny sound of the treble notes.

I am recording direct line from the amplifier to the preamp for the computer. I have set everything as warm as I can with the electronics.


Thanks for any help on this.

Well, my ears are probably not as good as yours because I can't hear the hiss in the clip you posted. Really one would need a clip of part of the track where there is only silence (and the hiss) in order to make a noiseprint of the hiss to have any reasonable chance of reducing/eliminating it. I would do that before making any other adjustments. If you can post a clip with just the hiss, I'll see what I can come up with.

You could try recording it a little hotter to increase the signal to noise ratio. I would also record in 24 bit, not 16. The sample clip is around -15dbfs rms which is fine, but there isn't much dynamic range so you could easily raise this. If the hiss is coming from your amplifier however, it will still be there. It also sounds like there's a compressor in the chain, either that or your amp is putting out a compressed signal. If you can get a bit more dynamic range that would increase the quality. As far as the EQ, just shelve the high end until it sits right in the mix. I would also record without all the reverb and add it later.

Duane and Steve,

Thanks for the suggestions. I will try some of the suggestions, and I will record the the background sound to and submit it, probably late tonight or tomarrow.

I went to properties, changed it to 24 bit audio, sample rate at 44,000, should I up it to 48 or 192,000????
