Audio Hiss from Lav Mic
on Sep 14, 2010 at 1:37:43 am

I have an interview with some some constant hiss. I have been told by editors that there is a method in FCP to isolate and EQ out the hiss if it is constant. Does anyone know how to do this? The hiss is not terrible, but I want to remove it if possible. I would prefer to do it within FCP as opposed to getting additional software. Any help would be appreciated. I am using FCP 7.

I'd probably first try sending it to Soundtrack Pro, assuming you have enough of just the hiss to set a noise print, and use the noise reduction process. If that didn't work well enough, I might give the parametric EQ in FCP a try. Just realize that you'll lose more than just the hiss this way.

Hope that helps. Post back with your results.

I find that putting these AU Filter settings on my clips cuts out the hiss.
Make some slight adjustments to suit your particular audio.

Still saving lives at 3am, three years later. I love this site. Thank you very much, gentlemen!
