Hi all. And first of all, pardon my noobishness. My problem is that my primary language isn't english and I'm kinda lost and don't know what to search for. So I've decided to hop in here and try to describe my problem, so hopefully someone will know how to help me. I've got this video file, that was recorded by someone who was trying to make a worst job as possible. But let's leave the picture alone, I've found the way to fix it. My problem is audio file, which I'm trying to normalise. When they recorded the audio data, (this is my guess now, I'm not sure about it) they boosted gain too much and now, when I'm listening to it, I get those cracking sounds when someone on the tape talks a bit louder. The sound is normal when they talk quiet tho. (it's only 2 people talking on the tape, no music) So, my question is, what's the word describing that cracking sound? And is there a way to get rid of it? I've tried several mp3 and wav editing programs, used 'normalisation' filter in there, but got lost in the options as I have no clue what they mean. I've included the mp3 file of the recording on this address (in case someone doesn't understand what I'm talking about). http://x.pbf.hr/~thorny/proba.mp3 Thanks to you all in advance. T.
