Um, Ah, and Tsk

I often read about clipping "Um" and "Ah" from our audio recordings. But, more and more, I'm hearing the "Tsk" or tongue click in people's otherwise professional videos. I find it distracting to the point of getting annoyed. When you're deleting your "um's" and "ah's" and long silences, it might be a good idea to get rid of those tongue clicks, too.

Hi Training,

iZotope RX6 elements might be of interest to you.
https://www.izotope.com/en/products/repair-and-edit/rx/rx-elements.html

In addition to including the declick module, it also has the best background noise removal tool I've tried.

Camtasia doesn't support audio plugins, so what I've typically done is do all my editing in camtasia, then export the audio, run it through external audio processing to clean up the audio, then import the audio back into camtasia, and mute the original.

This is worth considering. Background noise is the hardest to correct. Thanks for the link.

If you're interested I downloaded a handful of noise removal plugins and did a video comparison of them, it's a bit of a long video, and you'll need headphones to really hear the noise.

Of all 5 I tested I liked the RX dialog denoiser the best.

Audio is my weakest area. I wasn't even sure which add ons to include with RX6 Elements, so I chose all of them. Thanks. I'll check out your video, but it'll have to be tomorrow.

I totally agree.
I always try to get rid of everything that does not belong.
After doing my edit, I will sit back and play the video through Camtasia, Vegas, or Premiere.
And if I spot a sound that sounds like I have not had anything to drink in a year, it is removed with silence or cut out totally.
