    Question

    Sign in to disable this ad
    Dear forum,

    I have read the many articles sonusman has put out on the internet plus the many techniques discussed in these forums, and I try not to use any eq editing once I get the tracks in cool edit, but I do get some hiss. Is there a frequency range, that I can turn down they may help?
    Thanks

    Hiss

    Hi,

    Have you tried noise reduction? There are many plug-ins that can do this.

    Hiss occurs in the high frequency ranges. Sweep across until you find it and apply a parametric eq with an appropriate Q factor. This can help a lot.

    If I remember this correctly, the short answer is that "perfect" hiss has equal energy at all frequencies, it just sounds louder at higher frequencies. Most hiss is not "perfect" it is coloured somewhat by whatever is generating it. So the real answer is that it depends on whats producing the noise.

    Try cutting (Eq) everything above 8khz by 3dB or more with your favorite Eq plugin.
