Hi...

I can't get rid of a clip I need ....I have to keep it !!!. unfortunately someones mobile is doing the di di da da ( not ringing ) but the searching sound, but its along with someone talking.. is there any way to filter it out? I also have Logic X and 9 .... Is this possible ???? I tried cutting some of the bleeps out, but not all........ OR will I have to live with it? Luckily its a comedy !!!

Thanks for all your help
Anita Sancha.

Did you try to do it subframe, or did you go frame by frame? I've been able to clean quite a few clicks and beeps with Xs subframe handling, If you need more precision Logic is the next option. I have more experience using ProTools on a basic level, working subframe there is of course much smoother than FCPX, and you do have many more tools you can fiddle with. Depending on how much of that cell phone noise you have, you're probably going to have to live with some of it, or do some dialogue replacement by looking for the same words in other parts of the speech.

It's hard work, but you can also try to figure out the frequency of the tones - and use a Notch Filter to kill just that specific frequency. IF it works, it will solve a lot of your problem.

The good news is that they're probably very stable fixed frequency tones. The bad news is that sometimes, automated systems use combinations of tones rather than fixed ones - so a single notch filter might not do the trick.

Finally, the critical point is whether the frequency of the tones is at or near either the primary or the overtones of the speech you need to preserve. If they overlap, notching one, will definitely affect the other.

Good luck.

Checkout iZotope RX3. It's not cheap, but it's one of the best noise reduction apps.

Anita,

[John Fishback] "Checkout iZotope RX3. It's not cheap, but it's one of the best noise reduction apps."

I agree completely with both of John's comments. Not cheap, but it does exactly what you want. Check out some of their demo videos from their website.

You might want to give Adobe Audition a try ... they have their advanced spectral noise reduction tools, perhaps not as good as iZotopeRx, but not bad ... the "Learn Sound Model" feature might make life easier for you, and for the price of a throwaway email address* you can grab a free trial which should last plenty long enough to get the job done.

I just dug out this tutorial from the inter webs
http://www.streamingmedia.com/Producer/Articles/Editorial/Featured-Articles...

*Note, a regular email address would work too but their record on data security was a more than a bit dented recently.

Hope it helps
Andy

Yes, years later, these answers are still good I think. And Audition seems to be the affordable solution that works quite well for most things. I wish Apple would buy Adobe and merge the best of both, or rather add Adobe's feature set as Adobe has pretty much copied Apple's in Logic and FCP.
