How to Clear the Ambient Noise from a Podcast Recording

One of the things that can ruin an otherwise good podcast is an annoying hiss or similar ambient noise in the background. Fortunately, there are ways to remove or replace that noise in post-production. I was recently looking for a way to do this when I came across a video from Make Use Of on how to remove ambient noise by using Audacity.


Applications for Education
Recording podcasts can be a good way for students to record and share their thoughts about any topic they pic or are assigned. Students can record alone or record a conversation with friends, classmates, or family. Don't let an annoying hiss in the background ruin an otherwise great conversation recorded by students, try using this method in Audacity to remove that ambient noise.

For a complete Audacity tutorial and other methods of recording podcasts, check out this article that I published last fall.
