I wish to play a short sound in an app (60 Milliseconds is ideal), however I'm noticing glitches in the sound on the current clip I have made.
I'm wondering if these glitches have to do with any ambient noise and improper audio recording (by me). I.E.: audio with reverb is longer than the audio length (after cut).
So my question, Is it possible to record such a short sound and (after noise reduction) won't sound like a static glitchy mess?
I have a Zoom H4N, and am using a sample rate of 48000 Hz. I suppose if I lower my mic gain, I can try to eliminate some noise off the bat. Otherwise I'm not used to having to be this specific about recording audio, so any help is appreciated.
Just for a background on the sound I'm trying to record: Try picturing a short synthesized beep, except created through percussive means (ex: a clap, or a knock on wood, etc.). The more I think about it, I feel like the reverb of the short sound in the room might make this difficult.
Alternatively, would a MIDI sound be a better choice?
