Removing a yeller an Audacity
« on: June 01, 2024, 06:28:16 PM »
I just recorded TTB at the Greek and got a good result. The biggest problem is a guy to my right that would "WOOOOOOOOOO" once every song. Do you have any tricks that I can use in Audacity to help turn him down without messing with the volume of the music?

Thanks!

I haven't used Audacity much, but I doubt it could do much about this.

If the woos are not over band vocals, UVR5 could probably do a good job. Otherwise, it could still likely be fixed in Izotope RX.

If it's really just once per song, I wouldn't mind working on it. Just send me a copy along with a list of the exact times of the woos.

John (Down To Earth Landscaping) had one of these Woo wooers next to him at the 1st night of TTB in Seattle, but it was at the space between songs, fortunately he wasn't next to us the 2nd night when I recorded next to John. He did have an issue with a creepy woman who was offended by us recording despite being told we were allowed to record, she yelled into his mics when he used his cellphone light to look down between his feet at his gear. Fortunately mostly went unheard on our recording. She had to step over our gear to get  to her seat but it wasn't difficult to step over, but she wasn't happy about us bringing in gear, when I asked  if she had a problem she said  yes, I don't like what you're doing. I explained that the band  allowed it, she said she still didn't like it. I replied, if the band wasn't OK with it we would never have gotten the gear in. She didn't say anything else until she freaked out and yelled into his mics. I guess you get all types no matter who the band is. Bob

From my experience, a typical TTB fan. That's why I only run low profile for them now. Tired of the fans

From my experience this is far from a "typical" TTB fan. 1st time Ive had a negative reaction from a fan in close to 20 years of recording them.   Bob

I don't think Audacity has a spectral repair function, but I have had pretty good luck removing, or at least reducing, a yeller with the spectral tools in Audition. I think many other software packages also provide this tool. In the spectral display, you can really see the yell and scrub it pretty precisely.

@robgronette Thanks for the offer. I'll have some time in the next couple days to give it a thorough relisten and make note of the exact times of the WOOOOOOer.

As for the reset of the discussion on this thread, this is the first time I've recorded TTB, and was fairly stealthy. However, I have loved my concert neighbors at almost all of the TTB shows that I have been to over the last 10 years (lots of shows). I don't want to detract from other's experience with mic stands and gear, but we can do our taper thing pretty unobtrusively which shouldn't be a problem with anyone. But I guess Concert Karens are a thing.

Keep it fun and enjoy the music! Anyone have a recording of the Saturday night show?

I haven't used Audition, but this sounds like what I do in Izotope RX.
