Hey guys what's up, i currently struggling with the audio editing. i'm a begginer youtuber who just got his hands on a blue yeti for my gaming videos. i discovered it's very sensative when recording with your mouth right next to it (i dont know if to call it buzzing, tremble or shaking type of voice). So while i tried to fix the recorded sound i realized it doesn't do it if i stay a bit away from it so i fixed it.
now to the problem, on my recent videos i discovered 2 problems, first of all i discovered these problems by highering all my videos to a +7.00 Track sound level because i found that compared to other youtubers my recording sounds really low.
The 2 problems that i discovered are:

1. the popping sound when i say words with P or B, i found soultion with both EQ effects : Plosive reduction and Mic wind reduction. I like the Plosive more because, the Mic win reduction makes it sound like i'm talking in from inside something.

2. The sound, when my voice is too high, i really don't know how to descrbie it, When it reach high sound my voice makes sounds like it buzzing.i can't upload here more than 20mb videos and i don't want to upload it on youtube.
when i played around with the EQ effects i found out that Loudness curve makes it a bit more easier to survive, but i'm not sure if it's the right answer.

I tried looking around, i don't think im allowed to use two EQ effects, so if i fix one problem the other still remains. It's a pain in the ass really, my head hurts from trying to figure it out in many hours. but im the type of people that unless it's perfect i can't upload it. so i continue to struggle to find out how do i fix it.

Hello and welcome!

Lightworks isn't equipped with the tools needed for sophisticated correction of critical audio recordings.

I'd suggest switching to the DAW of your choice and posting your request in their appropriate forums.

Even with DAWs controlled by professional sound engineers, it isn't always possible to correct some bad recordings in a way that they sound natural and re-recording the audio with suitable microphones under optimized environmental conditions is the fastest and cheapest way to correct.

Hi hugly, you saying lightworks isn't equipped with tools to fix audio errors, but as i said above i found a fix for the popping sound with the Plosive reduction, so it does equipped.
as i said above i don't know how apply both of my solutions together because as of now i can only fix one by giving up on the other.

What I said is "Lightworks isn't equipped with the tools needed for sophisticated correction of critical audio recordings". If you think, your recording isn't one of those, then you might succeed with EQ only, but from your description I would have thought it is a critical recording.

Anyway, I can imagine that nobody can answer your question without hearing some samples.

The forum software allows attaching zipped archives upto 20MB which should be sufficient for some critical sound samples. If filesize is over 20 MB in total, you can use a file sharing service of your choice, e.g. Google Drive or Dropbox, or something like wetransfer.com which I prefer personally.

If any of the audio specialists on the forum has an idea how to optimize after downloading and listening, I'm pretty sure they'll join to help.

You can add to each audio effect by using the bands. Look at P106 in the V14 User Guide found in downloads > documentation

However, the audio options available in Lightworks are basic and won't match a DAW..

I would check out your mic technique to avoid mic pops in future recordings.

Just in case: To attach files use "Reply" (not "Quick Reply") from "Menu" below. Lower left hand side you'll see "Attachments", click on "Add File" right next to it, navigate to the zipped archive to attach, select it and click "Open". Edit your message and click "Submit".

Re. uploading an audio sample:

Export video from Lightworks
Open the video in Audacity
Save a short section demonstrating problem audio from Audacity in wav format
Put the small file in a zip folder
Upload to the forum.
