removing wet noises in speech
on Aug 1, 2008 at 7:42:48 pm

Okay, I searched the forum and could not find anything about removing the annoying saliva sounds from an interview. I gave the subject water during the shoot, like I always do, and she drank it, but you can still hear dry mouth noises when she speaks. Help! This is annoying the daylights out of me. Shooting it over is out of the question. Any ideas, filters, etc would be greatly appreciated.

Are you talking about the clicks and snaps?

In he future, have apple slices ready for your talent. They cleanse the mouth to stop the clicking.

Hello Laura and welcome to the Cow Audio Forum,

Once they click, they click. I'm wondering, though, if these impulse sounds can be removed with a de-clicking software normally used to remove clicks from records,

Haven't tried it. Maybe someone else has.Do you have de-clicking software?

Regards,

I've tried click removal software in Pro Tools and it doesn't work well. Most of the time removing mouth noises is a manual job. It'd be easier to do it in an audio editor than video. Just make sure you don't pull the ends of the edit together. This will cause the audio to go out of sync. Replace the noises with room tone so the overall length of the audio isn't changed.

Or redraw the waveform and flatten the clicks.

I have Declick software that works beautifully on "lip smack", so it can indeed work. It's true the Pro Tools stuff isn't do great for this. Otherwise, manual declicking or editorial works but is time consuming.

Reid, Do you have anything that fixes bad acting?

Talent. Good one. LOL. I think there's always a case to be made for total dialog down, atmospheric music up, silence-is-deafening type of sound editorial as a cure for bad acting. Tell everyone it was an artistic decision & that you're really happy with the way it turned out. Or recast the part in post as someone who speaks a foreign language, dub that language in, cut in side & back-of-head shots only, then add English subtitles. Voila! Bad acting is a thing of the past!

You want to see bad acting?

We watched the movie "Zacharia" last week just for kicks.

I've had really good results using iZotope RX, selecting the upper frequencies on the spectrogram and applying a heavy declicker.

We had a very similar problem with this talking head interview that came in for dub, where the guy speaking sounded absolutely disgusting! Had no joy applying filters without too many artifacts and must have tried a thousand other tricks and snips within my DAW, but going out into RX and being able to be frequency specific with the filtering really did the trick.

Hope this helps!

Andrew
