Iona Removing barking with Audacity? (31) RE: Removing barking with Audacity? 29 Aug 12

Sorry for my delay in replying. This has been the busiest month I've had in
some time, and checking Mudcat kind of fell off the radar. :D

@MattK-- that's pretty much what I thought after toying with the audio for
an hour or two. ;)

@Grikshaw-- good idea, and certainly would reduce the dog sounds, but I'm
trying to save the Lassie recording because of who the singer is--and it
ain't me!

@Charles MacFarlane-- thanks for the thread link! That ought to help, if
not for this particular project, certainly for other old recordings I work
with (why can't all records be in pristine condition? It's rather annoying!

@Mr. Red-- I wish I could get better editing software, but Audacity will
have to bark it's way through this one. ;) The barks are definitely worse
than the bytes. Yes, indeed.

@Arkie-- I'm sorta kinda new to Audacity, not having used it for in-depth
edits like this before, but I think when I tried the Noise Removal tool it
didn't do much for me. That could mean that it's no good for this project,
or it could mean that I haven't the slightest clue how to use it. Maybe
(by the way, your name now has Doye O'Dells "Okies in Californy" stuck in my head, thanks)

@Amos-- Thanks! I'll have to look that program up.

@999-- Shoot the dog? Shoot Lassie?! Sacrilege! ;)

@Steve-- I will certainly see if they have a trial run. I'm dying to fix that awful barking--if not eliminate it, at least muffle it. But doing that and preserving the singing......*sigh*

@Stim-- I wish there WERE a different version! But the thing is that I'm trying to save this version because of who sang it (Ken Carson). I don't think that the original, non-dubbed recording exists. I tried writing to the Lassie organization, but they haven't replied.
The song I'm trying to fix is at the end of this program:

@CJB-- I'll ask them! Thanks so much!
