Thanks, Sam. Here's the link to the .aiff upload:

I can send an .omf if this doesn't work. Pat DeFilippo asked the same question and used the Compressor/Limiter Audio Filter to take the edge off, but her audio may not have been as generally noisy as mine. She would also be interested in what you find.

Looking forward.

That is a difficult issue these days with cell phones being so prevalent. If you have a specific audio sample I would be glad to create a tutorial showing you the best options... which are limited.

Thank you, Sam. This is exactly what I was looking for. One "noise" that I am having trouble with is the cellphone signal reception noise that lives in the same bandwidth as the female voice. Any tips on that?

Pure Mission: NAB 2018 Highlights for Video Creatives

Everyone who attended NAB this year was on a mission. A mission to create the best content, a mission to deliver content to the right audience, a mission to produce great films for device and theatre viewing. We'll start by discussing some of the best solutions for some of the creative people we know - shooters, production/post folks. And there was plenty of new products, new services, new features announced at the show to get a filmmakers motor running this year. And again SuperMeet was fun, insane and informative. Shoot it, produce it, store it. Then? Sell it. It's all good and getting better!
