    Default I Want Some Action Question

    I'm posting this in the main, if the mods feel it needs to be moved to a sub forum please move it.

    question for the people here who can play with the quality of audio files: is it possible to clean up the hissing noise on the IWSA demo? recently I saw someone post an audio file where they removed the vocals from UFB (sorry, no recollection of who posted it). Can the same thing be done to the hissing sound and can the audio actually be improved in other ways?

    I have no experience in this and am honestly curious.

    Yeah, I used a program to remove the vocals from UFB. I have GarageBand & tried to clean up that track. The hissing is part of the original file, so I couldn't/t do much with it. Removing the vocal was easier, as some programs target specifically that file to remove from the track. I will take another look today to see if I can do anything else. I do really like the track, & wanted it to be better myself, so I totally empathize with you.

    I love I Want Some Action!
    Great, albeit unfinished, tune IMO. It just "whomps".

    Considering how secretive the VH camp is does anyone know how this unfinished track leaked? I know it's been out there for years now.

    Let me know if I can help. I agree, it sounds like a new tune when you can actually hear it

    What a great song when you strip those horrible lyrics.
