Using the Noise Removal effect in Audacity

Often recordings have some background or room noise, caused by a fan, a hum from an amplifier, or other unwanted sounds.

The NOISE REMOVAL in Audacity is an effect that is pretty effective (no pun intended) at removing that kind of stuff… but you have to be very careful or else you might wind up with distorted sections of audio in the things you actually wanted to keep!

In this tutorial I’m going to explain what all the functions of the NOISE REMOVAL tool do… and show you how I use it to get the best results.
