In the end it will be either a drum-track or vocal track or anything
else that could have been recorded in a studio in the basement of a
railway-station or it will be a restauration-effort to digitize a
vinyl or cassette.
In all cases: if it is hiss or hum, EQ or gate can help if used wisely
but I do not know any software for Linux that allows to cancle out a
train running through the one great vocals-take -- whithout destroying
the voice in the process that is.
IMHO: to do something like this the best way is to start with a tool
that visualises the sound to allow to really find and technically
analyse the problem. A human can hear, waht a train is and what a voice
is, for any software there is only frequency an amplitude so there needs
to be a tool that allows the human to teach the robot, what is noise and
what is signal.
The noise-remover in Audacity does that but is far too primitve to
achieve really good results.
To have the abilities known from Melodyne in Sonic Visualiser such as:
this part of the wave, this range of frequencies with this particular
sequence of amplitudes I can see in this graph is the evil one, go!
This would be indeed, quite nice, methinks....
p.s.: I have seen a MAGIX-Technician doing such a trick in Sequoia some
5 years ago...
