Mission brief: Noise to kill

Hi my fellow elektronayzers!
It has been a while…

I worked on a film and I had to get rid of the noise in the dialog that you will use for source material for the track. This noise was made by motors in a face mask that moved the muscles for facial expressions of the mask. I must say it was a painful job…

This mission brief is for elektron machines that support sample import.
Source material has a musical content so I think we should make melodic tracks.


1 machine only (no outboard).
Resampling allowed.
Ninja mode if you feel like one. (No resampling)
Genre is up to you.

Wrap up is on December 11.

I can’t wait to see what will you come up with.

Have a good one.


DIdn’t hear something from you file player… :stuck_out_tongue: maybe it’s from my side… I don’t know
Edit : Definitively from my side … Fixed !

This kind of things is always painful ? Don’t Izotope RX would make a great job by analyzing a solo part of the noise and get rid this then ? I remember always have very good result with RX in this kind of scenario when a part of the noise is isolated and can be analyzed…

In this case I had to find harmonics by hand to get rid of. This noise is specific because it’s a tonal noise with harmonic content and not a noise in a sense of all frequencies with full power. So I had to go harmonic by harmonic. Those harmonic frequencies are not steady, they warble around, so Rx was used like photoshop rather than denoiser.

Interesting. Thanks for the explanations

Sure no problem.
