60 Second Tip: Removing Background Noise in Audacity

Hey gang! I thought I'd share a new how-to video I recorded this evening.

I always see people asking questions about selecting a good microphone or improving the quality of their recorded audio narration. Although selecting a good microphone is good idea, one of the quickest and easiest ways to improve the quality of your audio is to isolate and remove ambient background noise. My favorite tool for recording and editing audio is Audacity. I love it, not only because it's easy to use, but also because it's 100% free.

In the video below, I'll show how you can remove background noise in two simple steps. Enjoy!
