An audio challenge & a Half!

I have an interview filmed at an indoor football tournament (so players shouting in background) and a loud tannoy announcement to contend with!

Any one know what filters/techniques to clean up my interview and reduce the background noise and tannoy in Soundtrack pro and FCP?

Ive tried Soundtrack pro's noise reduction, but dont really notice much difference- although I am a complete amateur and could be doing something wrong.

Thanks in advance!

Sorry, but there isn't much you can do beyond what you've already done. Soundtrack Pro's Noise Reduction works kinda-sorta okay on consistent background noise like the noise from a transformer.

But your audio has all sorts of issues: people yelling, PA, echoes.... you're stuck. I hope it isn't so bad that the background noise makes the interview totally inaudible, because you just have to live with it.

Okay, that's not quite true. You'd have to buy a third-party plugin like Soundsoap. You'd get an improvement, but not perfection.
