    Hi,
    There is some specialised software who are made for audio restauration..
    I had some good result with iZotope RS3. One of the feature can analyse the noise and reduce only the frequencies the noise have in it.
    There's nothing magical about audio.. if a voice texture is'nt dominant in the recording, it will be inpossible to re-invent it..

    If your are willing to send the file to me, contact me in pv we can arrange something.
    I recently did some restauration for the court, I know how it could be wild on emotions..

    I feel for you, but I would have to suggest you look for another way to resolve your problem. DISCLAIMER: I know a little bit about surveillance equipment and occasionally prepare A/V evidence for the local DA. That limited background in NO WAY qualifies me to give you legal advice, BUT I can tell you this:

    Secretly recording someone's conversation without their consent under ANY circumstances, no matter what your intentions - even in your own home, could expose you to legal problems that could make any situation (good or bad) instantly worse. Transmitting it to someone else could multiply that exposure. The laws on electronic eavesdropping vary from state to state. Through a quick search of the web (Recording someone without their consent in Michigan) - Michigan laws fall on the side of privacy; protecting the right to have a private conversation (good or bad) in a non-public place. Even in a public place, the conversation has to be loud enough to be heard by a passerby to have a chance of skirting that law. A local lawyer, or private investigator, would be able to give you advice specific to your area and situation. But generally - ALL parties have to be aware of, and consent to, the audio recording in MI - or it can be a felony charge to the person who made the recording.

    The laws on video are very different, and again vary by jurisdiction. Have you ever noticed that store/bank robberies caught on surveillance video almost never have audio? It's not because the technology doesn't exist; it's because you would be recording the private conversations of the hundreds of thousands of law abiding patrons standing in line between those robberies. Even the nanny-cam kinda thing becomes a lot more complicated issue legally, if it records audio.

    So I'm sorry to say, you proceed down this path at your own risk.

    I have a one minute long recording with several voices. The worst problem is that what I really care about is being whispered. I have tried but I do not have the software nor the experience. Is this something you would like to help me with? I am willing to send you the file. Sorry, I am not familiar with pv.

    I wouldve helped you had I saw this post. I'm sure it's to late now. As for the legal aspect you were trying to see if you had someone sneaking in your house at night you can't help who you catch on recording.

    It's really not for me to say this, but the real problem here is nothing technological, it's something to do with your need to know, and your personal doubts you have. Realistically lets be honest. He could have done something you would consider betrayal, or not. He could have done it, but certain that the recording will fail to be solid evidence. Or, he may not have done anything so absolutely certain. If the recording is capable of being able to be cleaned up, then you may discover sounds that disturb you but still cannot be clear enough to be certain. The more you analyse, the more you start to get paranoid.

    I'm sure I'd fail as a marriage counsellor, but you must make your mind up if you trust him, or not. You do not need this evidence and it's going to eat away at you. You have two options. believe him, or not. In your mind, despite his protestations of innocence, you don't believe him - and belief is the critical element. The truth is not. Only you have the power to decide. I have things that I don't tell my wife. Not earth shattering things, and perhaps unimportant. If she knew, she would worry and be less happy. She in turn, has things she's done without telling me and I don't need to know. If I did, I'd be cross. I would rather be ignorant. You want to know for certain, I'm happy being in the dark. This speaks more about your state of mind really. I don't think whatever we did it would help? You would, if the track was indistinct, still worry.

    Can you post all or a bit of it on soundcloud or YouTube? Then we could tell you if what you have is fixable, or dead in the water. Otherwise we're guessing own how close to the noise your signal is. Sometimes easily fixable other times just impossible. We'll easily tell you.
