5 Ways to Clean up Audio in Adobe Audition

first_imgWere these audio tips helpful? What else do you want to know about Audition? Give us your feedback in the comments below. Check out the tutorial below where Maxim Jago from Lynda.com takes us through the step-by-step process of using the Spectral Frequency Display to clean up your audio. Activate your Waveform by double-clicking your audio source in the Files panel.With your Waveform selected, head over to either the Effects Rack or the Effects Top Menu.Then go to Noise Reduction/Restoration > Adaptive Noise Reduction. Now that you know how to access Frequency Analysis (as well as how to apply frequency holds), let’s turn to a full tutorial (once again from Mike Russell) on how to effectively use this feature for audio clean up. Access the Waveform of your audio by double-clicking on the track.Head over to Window > Amplitude Statistics.A new window will open. Click on the Scan option in the lower left-hand corner.Once it scans, find the section that says Possibly Clipped Samples.Click on the small Diamond Shaped Node next the number. This will take you to where your audio is clipping. For an in-depth look at how to use the technique above, check out the great tutorial below from Mike Russell. He’ll run through the Amplitude Statistics process, then show you how to fix distortion in two different ways. 5. Use Frequency AnalysisAnother way to locate noises in your audio is by using the Frequency Analysis option. By activating this window, you’ll be able to see the frequencies in your audio file, which then allows you to find where random issues of clipping, excessive bass, and other noises are located. Here’s how to access this menu option. 4. Remove EchoEcho is another issue that you may hear in your audio from time to time. It happens, especially when you’re filming at a location with a lot of reflective surfaces. Surfaces like concrete, tile, brick, and metal will reflect sound and bounce it all over the space, which in turn can give you some unwanted reverb.Unfortunately, Audition doesn’t include any really polished effects that can handle this issue. However, there are several plugins you can purchase that won’t break the bank. Two great plugins you can use: Acon Digital’s DeVerberate and the SPL De-Verb plugin from Plugin Alliance.In the tutorial below, Curtis Judd gives us an in-depth tutorial on how to utilize both of the above plugins to reduce and remove echo issues from your audio. Now, you should be completing your audio mix in something other than your NLE, but if it’s a quick video project and you have echo issues, know that you can use these plugins with Adobe Premiere Pro CC.center_img Open your audio Waveform by double-clicking it in the Files Panel.As the Waveform opens in the Editor Panel, look toward the bottom of the panel.There is a small divider. Click and Hold to pull that divider up, revealing the Spectral Frequency Display.Now you have a visual reference to find the noises you need to take out. Now that you know how to access the Adaptive Noise Reduction effect, let’s find out how to precisely use the effect to clean up audio. Here’s another video from Lynda.com that runs through the process. 3. Use Adaptive Noise ReductionAnother way to reduce unwanted noise from your audio is through the use of the Adaptive Noise Reduction effect. This effect works really well at removing ambient background noise and wind noise. This effect can be applied in real-time through the Multitrack Editor, which is really handy. Here’s how to get started using the Adaptive Noise Reduction effect. Go to the Window top menu, and click the Frequency Analysis tab.Choose Logarithmic from the Scale drop-down menu.Start your playback. To Freeze, click one of the eight Hold buttons. 2. Use the Spectral Frequency DisplayHave you ever been out on location filming and some secondary interference messed with your audio? Maybe someone on set sneezed or had their cell phone ring. Maybe an airplane flew overhead. Noises like these can be taken out of your audio with the Spectral Frequency Display. There are always going to be imperfections in your production audio. Instead of scrapping it, use these tips to clean it up in Adobe Audition.No matter how experienced your audio crew, there are always issues that will find their way into your recording. It happens. But resist the urge to scrap your audio and go straight to ADR, because you might be able to salvage that audio. There are several options you can utilize in order to save this audio, but one option that’s gaining steam within the industry is Adobe Audition.With that said, here are five tips for cleaning up your audio in Adobe Audition. For each tip, we’ll run through how you can fix the issue and then post a helpful professional tutorial to guide you step by step. Let’s get started.1. Fix Distorted AudioThere may be moments in post when you discover that your field recorder settings were simply too hot. This is a problem that frequently rears its ugly head in documentary film work, especially for those working as a one-person crew. When your audio is too hot, it’s going to distort — but fear not. It can be fixed.last_img read more

India edge past South Korea 2-1 in Hockey Champions Trophy

first_imgIndia edged past South Korea 2-1 in a Hockey Champions Trophy round-robin game at the Lee Valley Hockey Centre here on Tuesday to keep their chances of playing the gold medal match alive. (Latest Sports stories)India wasted chances aplenty before captain SV Sunil broke the deadlock in the 39th minute. South Korea found their equaliser via a deflection from Kim Juhun before Nikkin Thimmaiah guided a Talwinder Singh’s cross from left at the far post that turned out to be the winner.With this win, Roelant Oltmans’ India moved to the second spot with seven points from four matches, while South Korea remained in the fifth spot.India tested Korean goalkeeper Hong Doopyo late in the first quarter. A brilliant run from Mandeep Singh, who stole a ball and dodged past two defenders, saw him being tackled smoothly to safety by Yang Jihun.Then, Talwinder Singh also had his share of chance as a direct cross from Pardeep Mor was poorly cleared by Hong and the ball fell before the former. Talwinder was slow to react and Hong cleared it again.Later, in another quick counter-attack, a pass from Chinglensana Singh on the the left was met messily by Thimmaiah, as the ball kissed his leg, with only goalkeeper Hong to beat, leading to India’s frustration.SREEJESH TESTEDSouth Korea tested Indian goalkeeper P.R. Sreejesh in the 29th minute when a Kang Moonkyu’s cross from the left corner was halfheartedly dismissed by the Indian custodian. But the reaction of South Korean Kim Juhun, who was lurking in front of Sreejesh, was slow to react before V.R. Raghunath came to India’s rescue.advertisementIndia got ample chances in the third quarter before Sunil broke the deadlock. Akashdeep Singh stole the ball near the half-line before he was put through by centre-half Manpreet Singh. Akashdeep moved into the circle and was forced out of position, before pushing the ball to Sunil, who rounded up and goalkeeper Hong to guide the ball to an empty goal.India got the chance to make it 2-0 few minutes before the close of the third quarter as Thimmaiah played the ball to the leg of a defender, thereby earning a penalty corner but a penalty corner variation attempt went awry.Raghunath had his moment later to make amends but his flick was too pale and lethargic and it was cleared effortlessly.In the counter-attack, the South Koreans looked menacing with four-time Olympian Seo Jongho’s pass to his teammate was intercepted by Surender Kumar.The final four minutes saw plenty of drama unveiling as South Korea got their equaliser out of nowhere as a ball drilled from near the half-line was deflected home by Juhun in the 57th minute.But India hit back in the counter-attack as a defensive error helped Talwinder moved to the by-line and set up a cross for Thimmaiah at the far post and the latter only guided the ball home to score the winner.last_img read more

Kumble will teach players how to win big moments: Sachin

first_imgLondon, July 12 (PTI) Sachin Tendulkar today described the Indian cricket team?s newly-appointed head coach, Anil Kumble, as a “fabulous” player who will teach the players how to “win big moments”. Tendulkar, alongside another former captain Sourav Ganguly, was part of the Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) that selected Indias highest wicket-taker and former Test captain for the coaching job. “Anil is a fabulous player, a hard competitor who will not make any compromises on the field. He will be out there to win each and every moment. Anil has a lot to share? everything that he has learnt from this wonderful sport having played for almost 20 years,” Tendulkar said here Tuesday. “There are always big, crunch moments in any match and how to approach those moments is important. We may plan a lot of things but eventually execution matters. “In sport, over a period of time what you learn is not every day you are successful, sometimes you have to face failures. “It is all about being a tough character and be able to stand back on your feet again and to compete the next day. Every day is a fresh day, new beginning. That is something I feel Anil will teach them (players),” he said. On a personal note, he described his experience playing alongside Kumble as “fantastic” and how the bowler had been a “big match winner”. “To the players, I would say go out and grasp as much information from him as possible and enjoy cricket above all.advertisement “Let it be competitive, play it in the right spirit and enjoy the game,” he said. Pressed further on former Indian team director Ravi Shastris disappointment having lost the job of head coach to Kumble, Tendulkar simply said “whatever we discussed in that meeting room stays confidential information”. “Ravi?s contribution has been terrific and he?s done a fabulous job. He is someone that I have played cricket with and understood the way he approached cricket,” he added. Kumble was recently announced as the Indian team?s head coach on a year-long contract, a job Shastri had also applied for with the CAC made up of Tendulkar, Ganguly, VVS Laxman and Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) convenor Sanjay Jagdale.

Virat Kohli does not want any room for excuses: Ravi Shastri to India Today

first_imgVirat Kohli is a trendsetter. Not only for millions of his fans but also for the current Indian cricket team.Kohli’s dedication towards fitness and passion for the game is what sets him apart from the rest.With 2818 international runs, 11 hundreds across formats and Test series wins against Australia, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, everything that Kohli touched in 2017 turned to gold.His journey as the Indian cricket team captain has been phenomenal to say the least. But the toughest challenge is yet to come as the team gets ready to tour South Africa in January next year.India coach Ravi Shastri, who watched from the dressing-room several of Kohli’s sublime hundreds, summed it up beautifully as he spoke about the Delhi batsman’s winning run as captain in international cricket.”The great thing about Virat is his work ethic, his realisation of what kind of player he can become and what he it takes to become that player. So the emphasis on fitness, the sacrifices that he has to put through,” Shastri told India Today’s Boria Majumdar in an exclusive interview.Kohli has had a sensational run in ODIs throughout the year, beginning with his hundred against England. He was in fine form in the Champions Trophy, got runs in West Indies and then against Australia and New Zealand at home.In the course of a dominant year for India, Kohli went past Ricky Ponting and is now second in the list of century scorers in ODIs. He has 32 hundreds and many experts feel he would be able to get close to Sachin Tendulkar’s 49 tons in the format.advertisementKohli now has the most double centuries as a Test captain (6). He joined Sachin Tendulkar and Virender Sehwag at the top of the list for most double centuries by an Indian in Test cricket.He also became the only Indian to aggregate over 600 runs in a single Test series for the third time during the recent series against Sri Lanka on home soil. Sunil Gavaskar and Rahul Dravid had achieved the feat twice.Kohli broke a plethora of records during the Test series against Sri Lanka and became only the second Indian batsman after Vinod Kambli to score two consecutive double hundreds.”A lot of things he wants to do as a 29-year-old. And it has become part of his lifestyle.”What happens is, that when you have a captain in that frame of mind, wanting to achieve things others can only dream of. Then it rubs off on other players. Others want to emulate him. He wants to raise the bar for himself and he doesn’t want any room for excuses,” Shastri added.last_img read more

Hardik Pandya’s father defends under-fire cricketer: Comments were made in light-hearted manner

first_imgHardik Pandya’s father has jumped to the defence of his son, who has been facing severe criticism over his infamous comments during an appearance on a popular television show, Koffee with Karan that was aired on Sunday.Hardik Pandya along with his good friend and India teammate, KL Rahul made a few borderline racist and sexist comments on the show, hosted by popular filmmaker Karan Johar.Pandya boasted about his dates and hookups with multiple women and also narrated how he informed his parents about losing his virginity.”When I lost my virginity, I came home and said, ‘Mein karke aaya hai aaj (I had sex today)’.” Pandya had said on the show.He added: “At a party, my parents asked me acha tera wala [your women] kaun sa hai, so I said yeh, yeh, yeh [pointing out to some women] and they were like ‘waah proud of u beta’.When asked by Karan Johar why he doesn’t ask women for their names at nightclubs, Pandya replied: “I like to watch and observe how they (women) move. I’m little from the black side so I need to see how they move.”Hardik made comments in a light-hearted mannerReacting to the criticism, Pandya’s father Himanshu told mid-day: “I don’t think people should read too much into his comments. It was an entertainment show and his comments were made in a light-hearted manner.”He was only looking to entertain the audience. So, it [his comments] should not be viewed very seriously or negatively. He is an innocent boy with a very fun-loving nature.”advertisementPandya conceded that he had gotten carried away by the “nature of the show”, which is notorious for making celebrities open up on their personal lives.Nonetheless, the Board of Control for Cricket in India is mulling a two-match ban for both Pandya and Rahul.BCCI treasurer Anirudh Chaudhary also expressed fresh concerns, saying that both Rahul and Pandya could be susceptible to approaches from bookies, who carry out match-fixing via honey traps.Earlier this week, the BCCI had issued a show-cause notice to both Rahul and Pandya. Despite the latter issuing a public apology for his remarks, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators is not satisfied with it.The controversy surrounding Pandya and Rahul comes at a time when Team India are preparing for a crucial three-match ODI series in Australia.Nonetheless, the much-talked-about issue will not affect the morale of the Indian dressing room despite Pandya and Rahul being part of it in Australia, according to batting great Sunil Gavaskar.”I don’t think the dressing room would be affected, this team is beyond it. The two guys you are talking were not part of Test squad, one [Pandya] just joined for the last two Test matches but did not play. Rahul had very little role to play as a batsman so I don’t think it will matter. If it would have been somebody involved in a big way, then it might have affected the dressing room,” Gavaskar had told India Today on Thursday.Also Read | BCCI raises honey trap concerns after Hardik, Rahul boast of night outs on TV showAlso Read | BCCI considers barring players from non-cricket shows after Hardik Pandya controversyAlso Read | India vs Australia: Ravindra Jadeja in for Hardik Pandya?

Political will there to solve child welfare crisis for Indigenous kids Philpott

first_imgAPTN NewsThe federal government says it has a plan to take action against the crisis in child welfare.That includes shifting from apprehension to prevention and trying to keep children connected to their families and culture.Many of the reasons for over representation are well known – a lack of proper housing, poverty and inter-generational trauma.Another problem is the data, or lack of it.In an opening speech at a two-day emergency meeting on child welfare in Ottawa Thursday, Indigenous Services Minsiter Jane Philpott said the data available to count the number of Indigenous kids in care is not good enough and without an accurate measure you can’t properly understand what is wrong and fix it.An estimated 40,000 Indigenous children are in care across Canada, accounting for more than half of the kids in care overall, but Philpott said she doesn’t believe anyone actually knows the real number.She said the government has the political will to fix the crisis, including getting accurate data, but she won’t yet put deadlines or targets on reducing the number of kids in care and keeping more families together.Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami president Natan Obed says the discrepancies in services for Indigenous children are rooted in a lack of a basic level of respect for Indigenous families and culture.Philpott said the ultimate goal is Indigenous management of child welfare but Assembly of First Nations national chief Perry Bellegarde is urging First Nations to take control now and not wait for Ottawa or provincial governments to delegate the authority to them.-with files from The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN urges states of former Soviet Union to respond at once to

“The increased political commitment we are seeing is encouraging but this must be translated into action on the ground,” Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) Executive Director Peter Piot told a meeting in Moscow of CIS ministers of health, justice, interior, development and social services. “AIDS requires an exceptional response, one that starts at the highest political level,” he added, noting that more than 80 per cent of reported HIV infections are in young people under the age of 29. “This will affect the region’s socio-economic development and security if action is not taken now.” UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Executive Director Antonio Maria Costa, current chair of UNAIDS Committee of Cosponsoring organizations, urged governments to do the right thing.“This meeting is happening at the right time, for the right reasons and at the right place,” he said. “Roughly 1.4 million in the Eastern Europe and Central Asia region are estimated to be living with HIV and AIDS. In some countries, up to 80 per cent of HIV cases are attributable to drug abuse.” Mr. Costa also called on governments to pass the legislation many countries will need to begin the campaign against the spread of HIV. “Without the appropriate legal framework, governments cannot move forward with effective policies and programmes,” he stressed. read more

IBRC involved in over A THOUSAND legal cases

first_imgTHE IBRC IS currently involved in growing number of legal cases, both as plaintiffs and defendants.It was revealed in a parliamentary question put to Minister for Finance Michael Noonan that the IBRC (Irish Banking Resolution Corporation) is involved in over 1,100 disputes.The question was asked by Fianna Fáil’s finance spokesperson Michael McGrath and related to the amount being spent by the IBRC in undertaking their liquidation duties.While the Finance Minister was unable to specify the amount the department anticipated spending on the cases, he noted that the Special Liquidator KPMG had informed him that a legal panel of Irish law firms were in place to help deal with the cases the IBRC are currently involved in. Source: photocall/Sam BoalDeputy Noonan made the point that the Special Liquidator “remain extremely mindful of the imperative to reduce expenditure on legal fees”. As of last month the winding up of the IBRC had cost the tax payer €112 million, according to a report by the Special Liquidator.Here are a few of the major spats the IBRC have been caught up in:Seán QuinnThe IBRC has been intrinsically tied to Ireland’s former richest man and his stake in the Anglo Irish Bank. Last month the former major shareholder hit out at the IBRC for using “stolen goods” to finance a campaign against Quinn and his family.Having declared bankrupt in 2012, Quinn went to prison for nine weeks late last year in relation to the case. The Quinn family are currently taking a court case against the office of Minister for Finance, the Central Bank and ten former directors of Anglo Irish Bank over the Quinn family’s liability for €2.34 billion worth of loans. Source: photocall/Sam BoalThese were given by Anglo to Quinn are being contested on the grounds that they were illegal loans designed to prop up Anglo’s share price. IBRC in turn are pursuing Quinn for money it claims is still owed.Century homes Eco-friendly developer Gerard McCaughey was in the Supreme Court earlier this month, contesting that he is not yet liable to repay a loan from Anglo Irish Bank relating to investment in two New York hotels. The court found that McCaughey would be entitled to a full hearing.McCaughey’s contention against paying back the loan centres around a collateral agreement with Anglo that he would not have to repay the loans until the connected investment projects had concluded. In January of this year, it was ruled in the commercial court that McCaughey would be liable for €5.2 million.Century Homes was bought over by Kingspan in 2005.Blackrock Clinic Attempts by the IBRC to offload loans relating to Blackrock Clinic came up against opposition from one of the private clinic’s major shareholders, Johnny Flynn.However, the US Bankruptcy Court in the State of Delaware ruled against Flynn’s attempt to block the IBRC from selling loans. This allowed joint Special Liquidators Kieran Wallace and Eamonn Richardson to complete the sale. Source: photocallThey were ordered at the time to set aside an amount of $36 million for a period of 60 days to allow the Flynn parties an opportunity to seek a stay on the order, pending an appeal.Joan Collins Although not taken directly against the IBRC, United Left Alliance TD Joan Collins took a case against the €31 billion promissory note deal supporting Anglo Irish Bank in November last year. Collins contested that the legislation behind the deal gave the Minister for Finance an unconstitutional power of being able to approve payments to the bank without Dáil approval. Source: photocall/Laura HuttonIn November last year, the court ruled against Deputy Collins. In judgement on the issue, the High Court said: “It is not part of this Court’s function to express any view on and still less to review the political or economic wisdom of the decisions which culminated in the 2008 Act”.READ: What changes does Ibec want in the 2015 Budget?READ: Michael Noonan says that Ibec’s budget sums “are at best a guesstimate”last_img read more

TiVo integrates PayPal for instant inad purchases

first_imgFor the most part TV advertising is something that I for one try to ignore. That’s mainly down to the adverts repeating too often and the stuff being advertised not actually being targeted towards me. That is sure to change as the set-top boxes we use get smarter and know who is watching (just ask Intel). One day adverts may actually include products you want to purchase immediately.TiVo realizes this and wants to break down the barrier between seeing a desirable product in an advert and the steps required to purchase it. So they’ve done a deal with PayPal that sees the payment service integrated directly into the adverts. That means if you see something you like, you can buy it right then and there using your PayPal account.TiVo is going to make it super simple to buy from adverts instantly by requiring a one-time account setup in order to use PayPal. After that, it looks like you can just tap a button or two on your remote and the product is paid for–no entering your login details each time you buy.PayPal is happy to be on board with this as they will get a cut of every payment made. TiVo should also benefit by negotiating a similar cut of the profits, but also by offering advertisers another way to get consumers to part with their cash (instantly).Any company taking part will have to come up with new adverts to fill a 30 second slot that highlights the ability to instant purchase. Hopefully TiVo has thought of the “kid factor” and built-in some way of stopping a child watching the TV from purchasing every toy they see in adverts.What will be interesting to see is what types of products get the instant buy treatment. Would a car manufacturer attempt to sell you a new vehicle? You could pay that first monthly installment with the click of your remote, and have a new car delivered a few days later. Scary stuff.last_img read more
