    Hi!! I'm trying to clean up some drum samples before finalizing a project. The noise on the tails is terrible and I cannot re-sample/re-record.

    Any advice on how to remove the noise without losing the timbre/sound of the drum is appreciated. Any presets or settings for RX7 or Soundsoap?

    Most of my files are from one source and probably have the same noise.
    One file called Black Oyster is from another source and may be different.





    For anyone willing to investigate further . . . here are the WAVs. Keep in mind, I have hundreds. These are just examples. I really need to find a way to batch process the noise away without losing the good stuff. ;-). Thanks in advance.

    Is this type of noise a fairly straightforward task for RX7? Any suggestions on how to use it . . . settings . . . presets? I've never used iZotope.

    Fuck iZotope Denoise in such situations. Manual selecting time/frequency and gain down the volume. denoise them manually. All denoisers even super effecient HQ one as in RX is still artificial as all denoisers from past, present and future. The most organic, realistic and invisible can be achieved by manual selected and deep gaining/editing

    1) Embrace noise.
    3) Put noise track/layer over whole song (tape hiss, vinyl bacon, whatever).
    3) ????
    4) PROFIT!!!

    Btw, those samples are hardly noisy. Try to be less anal about real analog recordings. No one is ever gonna notice.

    I made three previews for Black Oyster BD in 15min.

    1: free Audacity, get noiseprint and remove


    2: highshelf + highcut


    3: downward expander set at -30dB

    Hi!! I just swapped samples for something that is more obvious. HELP!! I tried using No Avenger's excellent advice, but having trouble with Audacity. I do have access to a copy of RX7. Can someone kindly give me some setting/presets/other for me to batch process a ton of these drum samples, which mostly seem to have the same noise (different levels).
