    Reduce Crowd Noise

    Level 1
      Can anyone point me to a tutorial on removing crowd noise.

      I recorded my brother;s band at a band and would like to reduce crowd volume.
      I know it's not possible to completely cut it out because it will share the same frequencies, but maybe it can be reduced??

          Use mics with better off-axis rejection next time you shoot? Or better yet, get a board feed and mix it with the camera nat.

          As for what you're already shot, my feeling is that whatever you try will adversely affect the music, which has such a broad bandwidth. If it were just one guy speaking to the crowd, that'd be different. But music...

            If you have the CS3 suite, perhaps you have Soundboard. You can try the
            noise reduction widgets in there and see if you can get something decent.
