Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Eliminating crackles and digital clicks, part of Audio for Film and Video with Pro Tools.
In this movie we are going to go over some audio problems such as crackles…or digital clicking.…These can occur from lavalier mic radio interference or in the lavalier mic…scratches against clothing, digital clock errors, or even when the audio…overloads the preamp.…Digital clicks from clock errors a lot of times may be seen in the waveform data…in a Pro Tools track in a very zoomed in level.…So here we have a piece of audio that does have a lot of digital clicks in it.…Let's take a listen to it.…(Woman speaking: In this example there are some digital clicks present.

Q: This course was updated on 4/04/12. Can you tell me what changed?
A: This update was initiated when Avid released Pro Tools 10. It explains that this course can be taken with either Pro Tools 9 or 10 (the exercise files are compatible with both), and we also added movies that explore the enhanced clip-based gain and Audio Suite features in Pro Tools 10, both of which are useful when building a soundtrack.
