Audio Editing (VO) – Adobe Audition

Posted June 19th, 2019 by Warren Blyth

quick note. Had some success editing instructor VO with these steps:

  1. Capture a noise print (shit+p) of dead air. Then apply “Effects >Noise Reduction / Restoration > Noise Reduction (process)” (see screenshot)
  2. Boost gain/volume (stretch waveform until biggest spikes near edge of visible range.)
  3. Add bass back into tinny voice with “Effect > Filter and EQ > Parametric Equalizer”. Mostly boost 200Hz frequency about 6db. Also boost 3000Hz frequency 1.3 db (for clarity). (Using 2 for Q/Width covers good range).
  4. Reduce echo with “Effects > Amplitude and Compression > Dynamics Processing”. (see screenshot)
  5. Boost Gain again.
  6. Use Spot Healing Brush Tool to wipe out background pops (usually stand out as weird blemishes in the Spectral Frequency Display.

(this is basically cliff notes from these two links:
