I run it through the noise reduction (set at 16) every time. Do I need to set it higher? or is there something else I can do? Nancy
I'm suggesting using less, not more. 16db is a lot of reduction. I think you should dial it down to 10 or 12. Too much noise cleaning can cause distortion. Just a suggestion.

Chapter 8 PL OK. There is a 'whomp' sound at 0:35 and 3:08 (sounds like breaths hitting the mic), and a loud click at 19:47. Up to you if want to make edits.

Ok although I couldn't hear the noises you mentioned I re-recorded those sections so hopefully that will take care of it. And changed noise reduction to 12. Nancy :D

chap 8 - 20m29s

That amount of reduction sounds fine; there is still almost no background noise.

PL OK!
