Reducing Noise and Normalizing Audio with Adobe Audition 5.5

You have created a Full Motion Recording project with narration using Adobe Captivate. While previewing, you notice that there’s some background noise that was captured along with the audio, and some parts of the audio have peaks. You don’t want to record the entire demonstration again, as the screen capture has come out really well and you don’t want to repeat the steps.

Isn’t that a common scenario while working on eLearning courses, whether it’s a simulation with narration or audio-based courses… Don’t worry! You can resolve this issue by following some simple steps.

Let’s see how we can remove this white noise and the peaks from audio by using Noise Reduction and Normalize effects with Adobe Audition 5.5.

Please let me know if you have any questions related to this workflow by leaving a comment on this blog post.

    works! many thanks,
    I’ve imported the clip to Audition from Premiere Pro. Is the a way to export it back there now?this option looks inactive.

  • Jose Brooks

    Good tips thanks! I will say to SAVE your original file before you apply and save theses changes. I made the mistake of saving a large file with these settings and I later realized I had some clipping on the high-end of a voice narration.

    An old post on another site suggested one could normalize multiple audio files in Sound Booth. Can I normalize multiple Captivate audio files at once in AA?
