Hi there,

I have a voice recorded audio file in mp3 format. Originally the voice was recorded on a tape recorder (at time when disc and computers were luxury) and recently i got it converted into mp3 format with the help of one of my friends. There is loud background noise(air noise, as one can expect from a audio file recorded on a tape recorder)and the actual voice subsided.

I tried removing the noise and hiss using 'wavepad editor' a trail software from NCH but had no success. As my display name goes, my knowledge about audio stuff is at zilch however i need to get the voice in this file to be audible enough.

Would greatly appreciate any help from the experts.

Only advice I can give you is to try Audacity, which is a free sound editor. This is perhaps not the best place to ask for advice on how to clean up audio content, however, as your question really has nothing to do with Delta Engine.

I had to the same thing with old videos digitalized from VHS videos. It was quite a long time ago so I cannot give You instructions but I used audacity and got the job done quite well.

I would suggest Audacity as well. Or maybe use GoldWave -> Effect -> Filter -> Noise Reduction (GoldWave is pretty easy to use IMO, but it is a commercial app, but you can test it with a free trial). Other than that I would ask a sound guy or maybe even give him my sound files and let him to his magic :D
