Re: What do you do to remove background noise?

I have towels/plywood/towels over the window. 
I then have 2 places I record.

  1. Talking heads is 2-4 in the morning, only time of the day that there are few helicopters, ambulances, harleys, and the 50 other things we have here downtown.
  2. Lectures without talking heads I do in a closet, yes my closet is also sound insulated, with that I only have to stop/re-record when military helicopters, ambulances and harleys come by.

With that I still need to edit a good deal out, and of course do noice reduction in Audacity. 

 

I have to admit I am somewhat envious of the instructors who have a very quiet environment, and that is definitely on the must-have list for when we buy a house here.

I have a fairly quiet place to film, but to get rid of wind, traffic, and computer fan noise, I've found that a shotgun mic mostly does the trick. Any background noise that's left, I can pretty easily eliminate with Audacity using the Noise Removal plugin and maybe a noise gate if the noise is too embedded in the audio.

I was using iMovie for editing and now using Camtasia for the same. Although I don't have an outdoor shooting, the mic captures the noice of the ceiling fan which sounds just like the background noice on your video. 

 

Both iMovie and Camtasia have a provision to reduce this ambience noice. I use them and it just works for me.

I am now using Built-in zoom and my voice cancelling and then adaptive noise restoration is adobe premiere pro. It improves the video a lot. I have a sony FDR-AX33.
