Hi all! I would really like to find an application that filters or cuts out any sound above a certain volume limit. There are several interesting public shows in YouTube that for one reason or another have a very poor audio quality. Sometimes the audio is clipping every five seconds. I need to boost up the volume a little to hear the speech, but then the clipping peaks begin to get extremely annoying. Since the peaks are louder than the rest of the audio, and clipping is basically a straight line, it sounds plausible that one could make an application to analyze the audio stream and filter these peaks away - stop the loud noises before they even get to the audio circuits. Do you know any application like this? I mean, it could be an app for the whole OSX, or just a plugin for Safari. Maybe even just for YouTube. So far I have only found applications that can limit the overall volume - but they just lower the volume, not removing the clipping sounds. Instead of listening to loud crackling, I'm left with quiet crackling - what's the point in that. The crackling still annoys me. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
