What's the best way to reduce background noise in your videos?

Hey instructors ๐Ÿ‘‹.

 

Background noise can be a huge hindrance to your course's audio clairty and Iโ€™m sure that many of you have experienced it. Most of the time you canโ€™t control the outside noise, but you can control the environment where you create your content.

 

Iโ€™d love to hear more about your best practices!

Whatโ€™s the best way to reduce background noise in your videos?

It's important to reduce the noise naturally first so pick up a place that has the little amount of noise first but if that's not good enough, I would suggest:

 

- Using Audacity, It's a free software, doesn't require experience and it can turn your audio magically.

- If Audacity is not an option then i would recommend  Adobe Audition, It has a variety of plug-ins and internal features that can go beyond what you want to a good quality audio in an E-Online course.

 

Luckly, Youtube is full of tutorials for those two and in 10 minutes you can learn how to reduce a better audio with almost no background noise.

Hi @Moustafa Ahmed

 

Yes, Audacity seems to be a great and free solution, especially for the ones who are just starting their journey in teaching online.

 

Thank you for sharing ๐Ÿ™Œ.

Using NVIDIA RTX Voice, you can use audio noise canceling and maximize your sound quality.

noise reduction was one of my biggest problem, it takes too long time  to cut each small part of the sound wave  .. in my first 3 course i was using camtasia noise removal tool it is the same quality as audasity ,, but in my last course i used AI  online denoise website it is very very good and fast ๐Ÿ˜Š. i dont know if i can put a link here or not

I will try my best 

The biggest issue with the AI noise cancelation services out there is that it remains a case of " garbage in, garbage out", which boils down to the unfortunate fact that you still need decent audio quality for good results.   As for AI, I've tried Adobe's version, and it is horrible. It flattens out my voice and make me sound like a robot. 

When it comes to background noise , the best solution still is to remove as much of the noise  you possibly can while recording. Hang curtains against sound reflective surfaces, use a pop filter on your mic...it doesn't have to break the bank.
