Lou,

Thanks a ton for all this great advice. One question, though, when you say "Then did the same thing using RX6 voice denoise” do you mean that you use the manual option for voice denoise, let it sample the background noise and “learn” it and then process the whole file? Lastly,when you say you only use presets, which presets you you use (or both Spectral and Dialogue mode)?

Thanks again,
Dan

Then did the same thing using RX6 voice denoise, which is a refinement only in 6. I almost always use the presets, rarely need to modify them, except I set the quality slider to BEST always.

And, lastly, I don’t really understand what you mean by “two passes.” I’m not really an engineer, I’m a radio producer who knows just enough about various sound processing tools to do my day-to-day job. And I’ve never used RX until now. I had previously used SoundSoap, but have been told RX is much better.

Anything else you think I should try, hearing the file and knowing what I have already tried?
