Resolved Question

Help removing wind tunnel sound

by Heroman_84 / July 4, 2014 10:08 AM PDT

I am working on a new movie project with some college students I'm affiliated with, and its my job to clean up the audio. the problem is the sound tech handling the microphones has to run to keep pace during several of the scenes, creating the most awful wind effect, for me to remove. I've tried noise removal, but I need to get rid of just the wind effect and not the gravel footsteps of them running. How can I make this work?

I am using Audacity to edit the tracks and Mixcraft 6 to mix them.

Also attached is a sample of the track i'm working with. the real problem starts around 00:55

Time to make a new sound track.

Now remember I'm taking it that you know video production. That is, a high percentage of audio tracks on video is not original. Just make a new audio production to replace the bad audio areas. Remember that I assume you as the video producer knows this.

Thank you Bob. I did think that was what I was going to have to do.
