For podcast broadcasts, we have to edit half an hour of audio recordings 8-10 times a month. Each edit takes more than an hour.
The most time-consuming things are noise reduction, amplifying the low-pitched parts, and truncating sound gaps (if longer than 1 second).
We do all of this manually in Audacity (MacOS). But I feel like we're doing things manually that should be automatic. Despite a lot of research, I couldn't find a way to do all this automatically.
Is there a way? At the very least, a method to automate some of the work would do just fine.
