Trying to figure out how to remove the static noise from your audio recordings? In this tutorial, I show you how to use free software, Audacity, to get rid of any buzzing noise or background noise that your microphone is causing in your recordings. Removing the static is very simple and takes less than a minute. It is important to note that, at the beginning of your videos, you should leave around five seconds of background noise. This will help audacity pick up on any static noise, but won’t take away from the sounds of your video itself.
This tutorial uses Audacity Effect – Noise Reduction to first get a noise profile of the recorded static and then uses that noise profile to remove the static from the sound recording.
