    Removing noise and making voice clearer?

    Post by Catarsis on Fri Oct 08, 2010 9:16 pm

    I want to remove noise from Kata's phonemes and try to make them sound more clearer. I mean, I've discovered that her voice doesn't sound bad, but it doesn't sound clear like other UTAUloids (such as Nami Utaune or Nunnorü Sasayaki). So, how can I fix this problem? There's some kind of program that can help me? please help ;_;

    Did you try Audacity's Noise Removal? It kinda makes your samples sound robotic, but that's the only thing I know...

    To be completely honest (but perhaps not so helpful), to avoid background noise you should invest in a higher quality microphone. I just bought a new one and it hasn't come in yet, but it's reviews show to give very nice quality. (I actually purchased it for the sole sake of making my UTAU's samples clearer).

    If you don't have the money for something better, then you could either use the Audacity noise removal function, or try to use noise removal in a program like Adobe Audition or Garageband. (to the best of it's ability in removing noise, of course)

    i and winchester know how to in audacity and adobe audition

    highlight the area where there is static and click noise removal and there should be a button called "get noise profile" then select all and go back to noise removal and click okay.

    i hope that helps messing with the equalizer to adjust the vocals after the noise removal should help improve the quality. it's what i'm currently doing with my voice bank to eliminate the static caused by oremo before my good mic died DX

    it's essentially the same thing with adobe audition it's just in a different place.

    I have an office mic.
    To get rid of mic puffs, I put a sock on it.

    When you say "noise" what kind of noise are you referring to?
    To me "noise" is that sound you get when your TV isn't connected to a channel
    I've also heard it referred to as "snow" or "static"
    Kane had snowy sounds until I fixed his oto >w>

    yes snow or static sound XD it will only search for those sounds and filter them out (or down depending on your settings) and remove them from the whole file after you've clicked "get sound profile" and stuffs.

    if your talking puffs of air then move the mic away from you mouth to your chin to check where to put your mic put your hand infront of your mouth and say something like ka pa sa or ta and watch where the air hits then move your mic bleow where the air hit and that should eliminate the puffs

    Well guys, although it often helps, I'd like to point out that a better mic doesn't _always_ help. As an example, I found out that most of the noise I have comes straight from my soundcard and not from the mic, as the same mic on a different PC records with almost no noise at all. And if the card is in a laptop, changing it is generally not a feasible option. So, bad computer hardware can also be the cause of bad recording quality.

    Anyhow, all tips here are good. Smile
    To improve clarity you especially need to play with the high frequencies in the sound equalizer. But when you raise them, be careful to leave high frequency consonants (like S, SH, F, etc) out of the selection, or they'll get boosted up.
