There are several things that I do with almost every audio recording that needs to be clarified. Step one is to listen to a good portion of?if not the entire?audio recording and make observations about the noises that I feel can be removed. The second step is to determine what tools I have available that I can use to remove those unwanted sounds.? Lastly, I begin the process of noise reduction in the steps of audio clarification.
Almost every software program that?s available has a noise reduction program in it.

Once you learn how to use that noise reduction program, you first select the audio file you are working with and begin by removing unwanted noise. You?re only going to be able to remove one type of that unwanted noise, so my advice is to try different settings within the noise reduction program.

Then, the next step is to use equalization to first remove additional unwanted sounds and then use a second equalization process to increase the desired or wanted sounds. When that?s complete, the last step of the restoration and clarification process is compression. Compression basically helps to make all of the remaining sound even so that if what you?ve done so far has, for instance, decreased the volume of the digital file to such an extent that the volume is very low, the output of the compressor plug in will help you raise that volume to a more desirable level.
