    Audio effect to reduce (general) noise?

    Hello all,

    Greetings from Mali, West-Africa.

    Doing a pilot short video with my Nikon D300s and ZOOM / external mic for sound, I was not impressed by the "general noise" it produced.

    Is there a way / effect to fix that a little bit in general without wanting to have it perfect.

    Thanks for any input!

    Recommend you use the 7 Band Parametric EQ filter in the audio suite tool, and I also recommend using the graph tool to adjust rather than the knobs. First determine which frequency range the problem exists in, then adjust gain to maximum for that particular range and slowly slide through frequencies to try to "home in" on the problem and bring it to the audio foreground, then reduce gain until you're happy with how much you're subtracting from the total mix. Take your time and be patient. This can be a somewhat tedious process as the adjustments can be very subtle in nature, and it requires a superior audio monitoring system to hear those differences.
