Depending on the software that you use, you can reduce the ambient noise sound. I just figured out the other day how to do this in FCP. There are two different methods.
- If you are in FCP, Right Click on your audio file> Send To > Soundtrack Pro Audio File Project.
- Once Soundtrack Pro opens, find a spot in the audio file where there is only ambient noise. Hissing for example. Highlight it.
- Process menu > Noise Reduction > Set noise print. (It will look like nothing happened but keep going.)
- Now, highlight any audio you wish to correct.
- Next: Process menu > Noise Reduction > Reduce Noise. (A HUD will pop up and allow you to adjust the level of correction.)
- After you have done this, got to FILE > SAVE.
- Once you return to FCP, the reference file will be in the Browser.
Follow all of the steps from Method 1 with the exception of Step 3. Remove this step. Then continue to the rest of the steps. If you use the default “REDUCE NOISE” settings, without setting a Noise Print, it sounds pretty good as well. This is the method I typically use.
While this is the process within Final Cut Sutdios, I’m sure that Adobe and Sony have a similar process.
Hope this helps.
