A bit late, only just saw this question. my understanding is that clearing up background noise is a specialist task. if you look at a sound wave it's really difficult to discern the main wave from additional noise. and although its possible to edit out the background of a photograph, that gets a lot trickier with a video if you follow my metaphor. the best most of us can do is open the file in a sound app (i'm on a mac so i use quicktime for this) and find the menu option to raise the volume. Now its absolutely possible that someone has come up with some new software that i haven't heard of yet of course. however good practice is; make sure you record at a good volume to start with- either do an audio test and listen back or set the levels with a headphone.

Mic not working on toshiba a665 laptop; hisses


Get rid of all possible noise in your recording space. Pick the least noisy area to record in. Turn off any fans, heaters, air conditioners and other nonessential devices. Even an extra laptop or idle gaming console makes noise, so if you're not using it, shut it off. Close the doors and shut the windows. Place your microphone away from any remaining noise sources, including power sources. Don't record next to a window, even if it's closed. Remember that your computer makes noise, too. Even sounds your ear can't hear will become noticeable once you amplify your recording. Finally, turn off any cellphones. GSM buzz can be picked up in your recording, so do not set the phone to vibrate. Turn it completely off. Get as close to the mic as possible. Positioning for tonality and comfort has to be taken into consideration, but beyond that you simply want to get as close as you can. The closer the microphone is to the audio source, the less background noise will show up in the recording. Turning up your source will accomplish a similar effect. Simply speak louder, or if you're recording an electric instrument, turn up the volume. If your levels start clipping, bring the volume down on the mixer. Tweak the EQ. After your audio is recorded, you can often eliminate noticeable buzz or hiss using the equalizer. If your mixer has equalizer presets, try playing with those before you start recording to see what bands you can turn down to diminish noise. If you're mixing digitally, you can record the audio straight in without any EQ and apply one during the editing process. Finding the right equalizer band to mix down is often a process of trial and error. If it's a hissing sound, it's going to be in the higher spectrum. If it's a buzzing sound, it's probably coming from the mid to lower spectrum. A graphic equalizer is a great mechanism to form a valley in the EQ and move it around until the noise is reduced. Use a speech enhancer plugin. Any good mixing program has one; even something as simple as Apple's GarageBand can do the trick. Or, try searching the Internet for a third-party plugin. The speech enhancer will let you apply some quick tone settings to make a speaking voice sound more professional. More importantly, it will give you the option to dial back the more quiet sounds in a recording. This will help isolate the vocal and push everything out. While this type of plug-in is meant for spoken audio, it can be used -- with mixed results -- on any kind of audio. Know your noise gate. The noise gate is your key to absolutely silent pauses and crystal clean audio. The gate takes out all noises under a certain level and turns them down however much you tell it to. If you find that your desirable audio never gets any quieter than -20dB, you can tell your noise gate to turn the recording down any time audio is not exceeding -25dB. You can even tell it how much to turn it down: all the way for a clean recording, or maybe just a little to allow some natural hiss in. The noise gate appears easy enough on the outside, but can be a little complicated to master. If your settings are too high, you will clip out parts of your recording, making it obnoxiously unlistenable

Audiobooks sound like they are being read in fast forward mode. Song are good, just the audiobooks? Can I edit the audiobooks somehow?


Yes you can. Here are the steps on how to edit an Audiobook:

1. Find an audio-editing software which has the editing features you want, and download it. Audacity and Adobe Audition are two popular choices (see links in Resources).
2. Transfer the unedited reading of your audio book to your computer's hard drive (if necessary).
3. Open your audiobook file from inside your audio-editing software. Many audio-editing software programs come with automatic file conversion capability so that when an audio file is opened, it's automatically converted to a medium that the program can work with. If your software doesn't have this capability, you'll also need to download audio converting software. Choose software capable of converting the file type of your original recording to a file type supported by your editing software.
4. Play back and listen to the reading of your audiobook. Stop the playback in areas you'll need to edit, such as a word or phrase you stumbled upon, long pauses that should be shorter, extraneous talking, bodily noises or the sound of paper rustling. You can insert rereads of certain passages, silence or reduce the volume of loud breathing and background noise.
5. Save the reading of each chapter of the book as an independent file. Saving the entire book as one file will make indexing the book much more difficult. If the editing software you're using has a multiple track feature, you can copy and paste each reading of a chapter to its own track and save each track as its own file. If your editing software does not come with a multiple track feature, you'll have to keep a master copy of your audio reading then create a copy of this master. Open the copy of your audiobook and delete the reading of all but one chapter of the book, then save that one chapter. Keep repeating this pattern until all of your chapters have their own independent file.
6. Listen to the edited reading of each audiobook chapter all the way through to make sure that you've performed all the needed adjustments.

The best program to put on your Pc is what I use and it is Free you, it is called PagePluse SE, you should try it you can do all sort of things with it but there no scan on it, just scan your photos to the your pc with another program witch has scan on it and put them in the SE program and you can do any size you wont and after adding text to it or backgrounds you can send it to the printer and print, an other program I use for scanning from the printer to the PC is called PainShop Pro 7 witch is a old program there newer ones out now but I am happy just using the old one it does the trick.

The Free version is Called PagePluse SE you not need the version 9.

I downloaded antares autotune evo and it will not open.


thats because it is a plugin not a program. you need an audio recording tool such as SONY Acid, Fruity Loops, Sony Sound Forge or something similar. Antares is not a stand alone program, it requires another program to run, hence the name plug-in, because you "plug it in" to another program. Sony will allow you to download free trials of their software, but they have limited functionality.

Professional voice recording on PC


Hi Stalks!

The good news is that making high quality recordings of a voice is a lot easier than say, of a band. In fact you do not need anything fancy to do this, just a good quality headset and microphone and some software.

I am going to assume that you are aware that you can use the media program in windows to record in WAV format. If you did not know that, simply Google WAV and record and you will find many articles that detail how to do that with a stock windows system.

I am also going to assume that you have an MP3 program and know how to use it. If you do not, well, there are free and trial versions (such as Soundforge) online, and you should download a few and try them out to see which one you like best. Almost all of these allow you to convert WAV to MP3.

The question of the headset and mic is a thorny one... You basically have two options but before I detail them, let me explain why you should use a headset with mic as opposed to just a mic alone.

When you use just a mic, background noise and your voice often create minor feedback sounds on the recording. That does not happen every time but it happens often enough due to the cheap nature of most PC mics that it is not worth trying to correct. A good quality headset and mic combination offers you an input device engineered for just what you want to do!

You can go two ways here - either a USB Headset and mic or one that uses the 5mm plugs on your computer soundcard.

I have used both, and I find that the USB type often give the best results but also happen to be more expensive. The reason for that is because they are not just a headset and mic but also have a USB soundcard integrated into them, hence the extra cost.

The less expensive option is a standard headset and mic that use the audio in and out ports on your soundcard. Over the years I have used a number of these and I find that Sennheiser makes the best unit for the price range.

You can find reasonably priced Sennheiser models at www.newegg.com and at your local superstores (ie Best Buy or Staples).

I hope that this helps you.

Hi, the problem could be in your phone line, A solution I found was a free download from CNET called "Noise Free Voip"
This is a small download that runs with Skype etc and works very well at reducing outside noise factors.
