You can either use a seperate microphone orrr...

find the program Cool Edit (it was once freeware) and use the noise reduction tool. It's not perfect, but it helps.

I used it for the whole of the Chemical Ali soundtrack and it was a nightmare sync'ing up all the sound

sometimes make them from scratch or a composition of wav files etc. Sometimes even a light wind, bubbling brook etc in the background helps mask the buzz or simply diverts viewers attention from the buzz. Of course a musical background helps 100 fold :)

Reduce motor noise

Post by Rulestress » Wed Jul 20, 2005 4:01 am

Add a "baffle". That could be anything from a piece of a blanket to some foam rubber attached to the camera near the motor. Could even be tied or rubber-banded on. The baffle will absorb some of the noise.

60cycle hum

Post by edchaos2 » Mon Sep 03, 2007 7:11 pm

this will sound like alot to do but it works.. if you want to get rid of that hum. re-record the hum, then reverse the phase and play it back, or re-record. that will cancel itself out..

If you use vegas to edit, you can place a noise reducer on the dialogue audio and you don't have to re sync the audio up! ;)
