Commands are instructions sent from an interface external to the filter, usually an external program using a ZMQ protocol. There is a filter that can execute commands which is what I'll use here. Base syntax is ffmpeg -i in -af "asendcmd=c='0.0 afftdn@n sn start; 1.0 afftdn@n sn stop',afftdn@n" noiseout.wav To use another source for noise profile, you'll ...

If you aren't adverse to using a terminal to extract it, FFmpeg is a very good tool that you can use. The command that you'd want to run in ffmpeg -i [input file name here] -c:a copy -vn -sn [output file name here]. -c:a copy: This argument copies the audio stream of the file. -vn: This argument informs FFmpeg to not account for any video streams. -sn: This ...

It's not entirely clear what you mean by improved audio, but here are three ffmpeg-based options that should get you what you need. Just combine the appropriate code below. I've included an audio conversion to high bitrate aac in all of the commands, but this will not actively improve your audio. If you're looking to optimize the audio for voice, check out ...

When using sound for speech-to-text, the quality is actually not very important. You can extract audio using ffmpeg, After Effects, Premiere, Nuke, Resolve or any editing software you like. Load in the clip, export again but as a .wav. Boom, you have only the sound.

I think the easiest way is with the Spectral Frequency Display. Sounds like coughs, air conditioners and so on appear as blobs or lines that you can either erase or reduce in volume. Much more effective than EQ, since you can target all the frequencies and the exact timespan. From Adobe: "The spectral display is perfect for removing unwanted sounds, such as ...

If you have Audition, try using the background noise removal effect. If you capture a clip of solely the audio you want to remove, Audition will identify that frequency and remove it wherever it appears. Might need manual correction since sometimes it the reduction at those frequencies can be extreme.

i would attempt this by trying to find the frequency of the cough and then nuking it with EQ, turning the EQ on and off when needed via automation. You might have to dip the overall level for a moment too if its still too bad. I'm guessing that in future having a second mic might help also so you can cut to that and it might get a better signal of the ...
