  • Removing wind noise

    I am editing video with Edius Pro 3 and trying to remove wind noise from a large number of clips.

    I've tried with Soundsoap 3 with some success but a) the speech has been adversely affected and b) I am having difficulty applying the effects to all the desired clips i.e. I don't want to have to apply the effect individually to each clip.

    Can anyone help?

    I have found the DC tool very useful, try the demo and see if it works for you

      once you have removed wind noise from one clip, you can drag the same filter to any or all selected clips in one hit

      you can use the parametric EQ filter and cut the wind noise at around the 100khz area, use band pass and finetune frequenzy and level and shape while playing the problem in a loop

          In addition to dragging the filter onto other clips (which of course only works within the current project), you can also save the SoundSoap settings to a file, and then load them when you process audio in a separate project.

          Try to find a clip with a few seconds of just wind noise, and use that as a starting point for the noise removal. Also be sure to enable the checkbox to preserve voices, that should minimize the distortion you mentioned.

            I export the audio to WAV - use Sony's Sound Forge to do noise reduction - then import the audio back in. The noise reduction in Sound Forge is a Superb tool ....

              Wind is a tough one because it covers a wide range. Everyone has given great advice but be aware you might not beable to avoid some change to the voice.

                Try noise reduction tool in Sound Forge ... first, you take a 1 second sample of the noise (wind) first ... then it uses that sample and does a Fourier transform (FFT) on it - and uses it to reduce the noise throughout the entire audio clip. There are various algorithms in there that you can try ...

                  I also use Soundforge9 for serious noise reducion and I do it in 3 passes of 6db reduction each time, much less destructive to voice than doing a single pass of say 20db

                    Yes ... 100% agree with that ... I do the same thing as well - 6dB reduction each time.

                      You can export the audio and take it to audio app, i use protools and nuendo for this, use noise reduction filter and find part with windnoice only let the noice filter lern the wind frequency and then remove it.
