    Hi folks hope all is well.
    I am re-visiting some old mixes, and there is a squeaky hi hat pedal.
    I had miked the kit up rather sparsely, 2 over heads, one snare and one Kick drum mic.
    It seems that the squeak is showing up in both Over Head mics. One less than the other (of course).
    Is there any neat way of hiding or masking the squeak?
    It only happens a couple of times.
    Thanx in advance
    Peace and good mixes.
    NoteFarm :)

    If you're mixing in a DAW, and it only happens a couple of times, I'd go for the Pencil tool. I'd try to do it on the dry tracks, so the 'verb can help cover up - otherwise, I hope you're Michaelangelo...

    Spray some WD40 on your monitor, should at least have a clean screen!

    Just joking of course.

    Do this.

    Do a Cut indivigually at each sqeak of the problem frequency.

    An edit per squeak.

    I do sometimes 2000 edits in mastering if I have a problem..

    Do it pro, take the time.
  4. I agree with my two more experienced friends above, Bill and Kevin... take the time.
    Hey Bill speaking of that .. your 2000 tweeks and my 2000 tweeks have kept us from hitting the phone line at the same time .. we need to connect (or at least I do!). Time to PM?

    Thanx for the help and advice,
    I had al ready sprayed the monitors with WD40, and when that didn't work I new I would have to try something else.
    Thanx for your help..anyone know of a good wd40 plug in for "after track squeeks"?
    Here I go with the pencill tool..
