I've managed to do pretty well with the video portion, thanks to lots of help from reading old posts here, and articles and what not. But here's my problem: The audio crackles like the volume is turned up too loud. It's not the player, because I've tried 2 VCRs, and they play normal ones fine, and this tape horribly.

The audio only crackles when someone talks, not during blank spots. I've tried the noise reduction in audacity with no luck but it did take care of the typical VHS hiss.

Any ideas? Is it a recording or retail tape? If it's a recording, it sounds like the audio bias wasn't correct on the VCR that recorded it. If so there isn't anything you can do, the audio was recorded that way. Yeah, it's a recording, and from '91 at that. I mean, I can live with the fact that the audio sucks, but if there's a way to filter it, maybe just cut it down some, that would be sweet.

I'm checking out an old version of cool edit pro with 60 day trial right now. I am converting to DVD, so software filters are entirely possible. Do you have an external graphic equalizer for a stereo system?

You could try hooking that up between your vcr and your computer. Than you can do a live equalization of the sound output from the vcr to the computer. Might work. Donatello - The Shredder? Michelangelo - Maybe all that hardware is for making coleslaw? I don't have anything like that unfortunately But I guess as a last resort I'll look into buying one.

It's just for personal use, so maybe I'll just hold on to the original copy, one day get a hold of one of those things, and just live with the DVD having somewhat poor sound for now. Edit: Thanks for the idea!

VHS making a weird noise, please help!?

Hooked it up, and the sound is better than I ever expected. I guess the PC just couldn't take the high signals from the bad tape?

Anyway, it works, so thanks! I DID have an old receiver from my dad's turntable. Just for something else to look for, I had the same problem and the solution was in my capture program to simply adjust the audio line capture volume or even in the sound card, audio line in volume properties. Once I reduced these the the distortion and crackle was gone and I had happy capturing. Hope it helps someone! Replies: 4 Last Post: 15th Mar Easycapture USB 2.

Thread starter dgm Start date Jun 17, Play a tape, and this crackling buzzing can be clearly heard throughout playback. I have two other VCR's and play the same exact tapes on those machines just fine.

Anyone ever had this? Any suggestions on how to correct? Thanks much. Agree with Marty. Try a cable switch and if that cures it, fine. If not, well, I hope you still have the box, all packing materials and the receipt. You're gonna need it. You must log in or register to reply here. Latest posts.VideoHelp Forum. Remember Me?

Results 1 to 9 of 9. Distorted audio from VHS tape. Hello everyone, I have a question for you. I've got many VHS tapes, and I would like to use the audio, however I've got some problems with the quality.

VHS SOUND EFFECTS

Well, some are hissing, and it's not a problem at all, I can easily handle this with Sound Forgehowever some of these audios are really distorted. Well, I'm not sure how to explain but you can hear clicking and crackling. These can be really random, but they can occur during speeches and higher pitch sounds like phone ringing and so on. Can you explain me in detail how to get rid of these crackling and clicking?

Thank you very much! Can you upload a small sample showing the problem, perhaps 10 - 15 seconds. Yes, don't be surprised, it's not English.

Don't you have any ideas how to enhance? Not having heard it, I can't be sure, but here's something to consider: VHS audio can be standard linear tracks mono or stereoor they can be Hi-Fi FM-modulated tracks. Or both. On decks that prefer the Hi-fi tracks obviously with tapes that are encoded with Hifione has to also adjust the tracking for the hifi track mistracking of hifi tracks exhibits a sound very similar to what you describe.

This may be in tandem with the standard tracking, or it may be using the same tracking control but need adjustment AWAY from the ideal for the video's tracking, or it may be an independent, separate tracking control altogether.

This may fix you issues if you have these kinds of tapes. If you do have these kinds of tapes but you don't have a proper deck to correctly adjust hifi tracking, you may be able to drop it back to selecting the linear audio tracks and live with the hiss. IF Scotts suggestion does not help, there may be something you can do in Sound Forge that may help a bit. When I listen to it, the worst thing is that it has a harsh, screechy sound - you can clearly hear it at just past the 7 second point on the clip you provided In Sound Forge, open the the Parametric EQ and try to isolate just that sound.

The sound goes through the speakers of the TV. The sound of the tape plays fine, but the buzzing sound is really irritating. The tape was released somewhere in between I really need help fixing this!!! Please help:0 I've even blown out the dust in the VHS player but no luck:. I am not going to re-buy something I already have. Blu-rays are just cheesy overrated players. At least VHSs don't get scratched up.

The first response answer was the correct one. That whole crap about getting a DVD player or a bluray player is somebody's own preference. It should not be crammed down their throat. DVD has better picture and sound, but can get scratched up and broken easier. For durability and longer term, VHS is better. For picture and audio quality, DVD is better.

And don't be fooled, bluray is a flat-easy to break-disc also. One more thing; if somebody has a preference, isn't it better to at least ask why before practically calling them stupid? You are better to not respond to anymore comments if you are always going to be that short-sighted.

10 Ways To Fix A TV That Has A Picture But No Sound

Keep the peace. Well something is obviously wrong with that particular tape. Don't put it back in the VHS because it may mess up the whole player. And also, go buy a DVD player or even a blueray player. Probably the fan bearing is wearing out. The blade part starts to wobble and make that noise. It's not critical, but you should get it replaced sometime soon. Answer Save.
