If anyone with any experience with editing audio on Pro Tools can help me, i'd be very grateful. If you have two or more tracks of audio, say a vocal mic was on each, for spoken word. It's not too much bother to manually snip out the silence(ish) from the inactive mics but is there a better way? I dont really want to use a gate/expander otherwise you will hear it (this was not a studio record so room noise is there) I sometimes get given courses/dramas to edit that have been recorded in this fashion and it can be a bit slow. Editing drama is much less hassle if everyone has stood around the one figure of 8 mic. Also, quickly, any recommendations on NR plugins, I have tried sound soap and izotope over the years but they very much seem to reduce noise in exchange for weird artifacts and sometimes phasing mush. As with the above scenario all i would ever like to remove is room noise (so broadband) from spoken word. Thanks for any advice.
