How to Remove Room Echo in Adobe Audition
How to Remove Echo from Audio
This wikiHow teaches you how to remove an echo from an audio file using Audacity, a free audio editor for Windows and Mac. When recording audio, sometimes the room you record in creates an echo or background noise. Most audio editors, such as Adobe Audition, have similar tools that can reduce echoes and background noise. These methods are most effective when used on a track with a single voice or instrument. Complex tracks with multiple voices or instruments will make it harder to isolate the background noise and remove it.

- To download Audacity, visit and click the download link for your computer's operating system. Once downloaded, double-click the installer file and follow the prompts.
Open the audio file.Audacity supports most audio formats, such as mp3, wav, aiff, flac, ogg, and ffmpeg. To open an audio file:
- Browse and select audio file.
Apply Noise Reduction.To apply noise reduction, highlight the entire audio waveform by pressingCtrl+Aon PC, orCommand+Aon Mac. Then click "Effects" in the menu bar at the top, and select "Noise Reduction". Increase the noise reduction (dB) slider by dragging it to the left. This reduces echo and other background noises. Click "Preview" in the lower-left corner to hear what it sounds like. When you are satisfied that enough of the echo has been cut out, click "Ok" to apply the effect.

Apply Amplify.Amplify increases the volume of the audio. It's at the top of the list of effects in the Effects menu at the top of Audacity.

Apply a Low Pass or High Pass Filter.Depending on how your audio sounds, you may need to apply a low or high pass filter. If it sounds high pitched with a lot of hisses, apply a low pass filter. If it sounds low and muffled, apply a high pass filter. Both effects are found in the Effects menu. Use the pull-down menu to select the Rolloff (dB per octave) range. Your options are between 6 dB to 48 dB. Click "Preview" to hear what it sounds like, and click "Ok" to apply the effect.
