Join Scott Hirsch for an in-depth discussion in this video Reducing broadband noise, part of Audio for Film and Video with Pro Tools.
Of all the audio problems you'll encounter, broadband noise is the toughest to work with.…Broadband noise is characterized by noise spanning the audio spectrum in…unpredictable frequencies in varying amplitudes over time.…In this movie, we'll learn what we can do to tackle these types of noise…problems the best we can.…We're going to be using a broadband noise eeduction tool here used by iZotope…called Denoiser, but there are few different tools out there in the market…that do the same thing.…Waves makes X-Noise, Pro Tools makes one called BNR, Broadband Noise Reduction,…and all of them work in a similar fashion.…

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.
