Yes it is happening here on my laptop also. Without downloading the video and analysing the audio, it's most likely to be an issue with DC bias in the audio stream. This can be removed by re-encoding the audio with a high-pass filter set at a very low frequency (20Hz). You can also remove it by using a filter in the output stream of your audio interface. ...
Industry level audio usually heavily compressed as a last step of production. I would guess this is what you are after. This is of course given your initial sound track is of decent quality already. There are plenty of software compressors available on the market and can be used with Logic. I'm not recommending or advertising but just for example.
The problem is that the file you downloaded is likely not the same video you watched on the site.
YouTube supports many codecs and transport methods. Your download tool probably picked something different than what your browser used. In some cases, YouTube also supports adjusting the bitrate of what you are watching progressively. If you use a download ...
Old question, I know. Use an USB isolator like this:
Less than 10 dollars on aliexpress.
What it does:
Isolate ground (lift ground) on the USB connection with isolated DC/DC converter to eliminate ground loop/noise.
There are two simple approaches that I can think of:
Get a mic that doesn't pick up as much noise
Get a keyboard that doesn't make as much noise
The first one I don't know too much about, but something to look into is the pickup pattern. If you use a mic with a cardioid pickup pattern and can position it so the keyboard is to the rear of the mic, the mic ...
Basic steps to getting good audio quality:
Get an external mic. You've already done this. When you use the built-in mic in the smartphone while recording video, the distance between the mic and your mouth is usually too large. The result is that volume is low, and the mic picks up a lot of ambient noise (reverb from your voice in the room, but also any ...
What you can do
Download your video from this website with (lossless) settings and desired quality:
make a checksum of both audio files
The one downloaded by listentoyoutube and the one by cconverter.
After converting them to a lossless audio file format (using ffmpeg for example) compare them with the checksum command line on your terminal.
have you checked your energy settings? in osx with my macbook this also happens because it wants to conserve energy. shutting down the audio is a way to save energy, on unbalanced audio lines you'll hear a pop. the whine is not something i have experienced myself though.
People can listen to the same thing but will always hear different things. Some people like noise, some like pop, its all subjective in the end.
So no one can really say that the Mp3 format "sounds" bad or that music sounds better compressed both in data or level.
Technical on the other hand, things can be good or bad. With Mp3 you lose a lot of what the ...
SO you have mixed up a few things together in your question, the main ones being size compression and volume compression:
Lossless size compression (eg FLAC) will provide the best reproduction of the original, however there may be different originals. But if you have a version that is good, the lossless reproduction will be identical to it, so is going to ...
It is not bad but the critics will critique because they are ignoring reality. While it is easy to say "why dont they just release everything as lossless audio tracks in the highest quality we can" the reality is that devices like iPods have limited drive space and use D/A converters made for the masses not the pro style stuff that many critics use. That ...
