Hi all! I’m hoping someone here might be able to help me somewhat fix the issue I have encountered. I’m supposed to stream a video online this Friday with the effected audio and am HOPING I can find a solution to clean it up somewhat. Any and all ideas welcome.
Background: Three times a year I record over 8 hours of the final round of a photography competition. It’s a panel setup with three judges on camera with lav mic headsets. I use OBS to record each segment and then playback the video files online at a later date as part of a streaming event. After recording, I clean up the audio in Adobe Audition while using presets from Music Radio Creative.
Current issue: On day two of recording I foolishly didn’t re-check that everything was recording fine and for the first 1.5 hours the audio recorded (after passing through OBS) is in very rough shape. I have a VST 2 plugin (TDR Kotelnikov https://www.tokyodawn.net/tdr-kotelnikov/) that was on and I suspect the culprit for the continuous clicking and cutting/peaking of the audio.
There are two clip examples. The first is unprocessed and on the second clip (V2) I’ve applied two passes of deClicker both on heavy reduction. Then I applied Podcast Voice Preset.
I’m by no means an expert or well experienced but I am comfortable working in Audition.
Is there a solution out there to make the audio somewhat understandable? I know it’s pretty rough but I have no option to re-record. One thing I played with was adding an artificial stereo effect and it seemed to make understanding the audio a little easier.
Thanks in advance for any help with this!!
