I use 'Auto Heal' in Audition on each specific clap. I have RX but I have never used it. You can use the auto heal function as an eraser on the waveform and only isolate the claps. I only use them inbetween songs with terrible clapping. It is tedious, but 100% effective.

I assume using Rx if someone is clapping off tempo you could use it for that?

I have Audition 3.0 and I've never seen Auto Heal. Is it a plug in?

It may not be in 3.0? I had creative suite 5-6 and now have the Adobe subscription. I believe it’s Auditon 2022. It’s the small band aid icon near the cursor selector.

According to this article, it should be in my version somewhere, although I've never seen it. I'll check when I get a chance.

There was a guy who was clapping on beat and it was so loud that Luther shot him a glance, smiled and made the "cut it" sign. I think I was able to eliminate that clapping (or at least reduce it to a quiet level) with Declicker

Even worse are the ones that can't manage to clap on beat.  :banging head:

Definitely annoying at the show, but I've found it a little easier to clean up in Izotope. I had an off-beat toe-tapping kid next to me at a show over the weekend, and it was a quiet band. Super distracting. I used Izotopes Spectral repair to manually attentuate these.

Here are directions I wrote back in 2013 to deal with this in both Audacity and iZotope RX. The names of presets may have changed, but the procedure still works. You may get better results in RX with some of the other presets.

Thanks for sharing your settings.  Just last night I was fiddling in rx8 on this very issue.  Do you apply this across the entire recording in one fell swoop or do you just try to apply it to the segments where the clapping is most offensive?

I just process the period between when the applause starts and when it ends.

So I'm learning to use auto heal. Thanks for the tip. Never knew it was there. Looks like the eraser is in spectral display. I'll have to try that to.

BTW, I've seen this particular clapper before. Last time was years ago, but it's definitely the same clown. He tends to hover around mic stands or the board and claps really fast and loud. Like it's on purpose so he can pick himself out in the recording.
