Cleaning up car interview
Work flow and settings for a interview in a noisy environment. The original sound came from a car which and had a lot of background noise. The plug-ins I'm using here comes from Waves but you can do this with any other plug-ins. (Roland in this document is the name of a person and does not refer to the instrument manufacturer :-)
