    I made a big mistake :roll: ! I placed 2 condenser mics in the same live room.
    I was invited over to do some recording and found a small bedroom with no absorption on the walls, ouch! Some of the things we do to get out of the house.
    I had two to three acoustic guitars playing, with them plugged into a small 6 input mixer and the two mics, 1 Rode NTA switched to directional and another mic with only omnidirectional.
    I recorded them live all at once playing their guitars and singing. They wanted a demo to get gigs and wanted their live sound recorded. I know I said they!
    When they all harmonized together, at times in the recording I have crackling or scraping sounds in the voices.
    My question is, can I get rid of this sound through processing or is it a re-record?

    The best option is to re-track.
    If it is clipping, and the clipping is not too bad, some Clip Restoration functions might get the job done (within reason). If it isn't clipping, I'd need to hear it to know how, or if, it can be approached.

    After further review of working with the three songs, I have found some Dig/dis and I think some cross-talk between the mics. So I will burn them a rough demo and invite them over to my little home studio with sound damping room and some seperation to complete my task. Oh well, We love what we do, so more tracks to lay.
