:: Audacity Tips & Tutorials -> How to Delete Annoying Sound Using Audacity

When your interview contains an annoying bit of sound (such as a cough or a “click”), what can you do? With Audacity, it is possible to simply remove that snippet of sound.

  1. Zoom in on the waveform (CTRL+1) where the annoying bit of sound lives
  2. Highlight the part of the waveform that you want to remove – remove as little of the waveform as possible
  3. Press the “Delete” key or use CTRL+X
  4. Test the playback. You can always “undo” and then “redo” until you find the right amount
