EQ help
« on: August 17, 2014, 02:14:50 PM »
I'm the first to admit I suck at "real" editing!  I can handle a little hiss etc but I haven't been able to get this one nailed down.  It's a mono sbd.  Sounds like an amp buzzing as well as something else maybe.  It's throughout the whole recording but this is by far the worse section I've found.  I use wavelab.  I used the 60 band spectrum meter to view the frequency.  I tried using anwida's GEQ31V eq to isolate it but had no luck.  I tried the de noiser plugin as well. I also tried izotope's rx2 denoise using the "learn" feature and it got rid of it but got rid of a lot of dynamics as well.

Don't eq.  Wrong approach for this sort of issue.  EQ is for broad ranges and adjusting tone, not for removing a narrow band. 

Use an FFT filter to knock out just the range/s you need to.  You can fine tune that down to a Hz or two or make it wider or apply a series to drop the main frequency as well as the prominent overtones. 

The buzz isn't that bad here but if you knock out everything below 100 Hz or so that removes almost all of it.  I didn't play around to fine tune it but it seems it should be fairly easy to do (especially if you've really identified the offending frequencies).

Don't know wavelab but it should present a graph.  Add points where needed to set up the areas to lower and take those down as far as needed.  Leave the rest at 0.
