How would I do that, and is the source of the problem acoustic or technical? 4- Arran Haynes Tried founding, turning off things, but still have interference making clicks in recordings 5- Dave Flatley What do you think of the Sound Forge software and what do you think of the 528E voice processor? 6- Lance deBock .is the -65 db noise floor acceptable or should I continue to use the noise gate for my voiceovers. 7- Robert Leach Is a headset mic a viable option? Omni? Brand? 8- Mark Stanley noise floor appears to be about −50 to −55 db, but still seems, to my ear, to be excessively loud. Should I use Noise Reduction?
