  • Weird Nerdy clicky Noisy Cancely... I don't know, need a sound engineer.

    Has anybody any experience of recording things?
    I am installing a ShoreTel in a large and old organisation, the legacy system is a Siemens iSDX which has a few thousand analog extensions on it. It's about 25 years old.
    It is huuuugge, pretty much a walk in phone system, about 20' long and a wall full of krone strips.
    i want to record the sound the relays make. I spent a few hours in the same room when installing a couple of ShoreGear switches and I wanted to capture the sound for historical interest. There is something musical about the way that the clicks pulse up and down the room.

    Holding a mic up to the room picks it up OK, what I would like to be able to do is try and cancel out the noise of cooling fans and aircon and try and bring out the clicking of the relays more.
    I have Sony Soundforge and I guess I need to copy a section of background noise with no clicks and then do something with this to use as a mask to cancel out the same noise and hopefully leave the clicks from the relays.

    Anybody a sound engineer?

    audacity has a noise cancellation, just make sure you get sound of just the fans so it can build a filter.

      You bring a damn tear of joy to my eye.

        Can you take some pictures of that time warped phone wiring room for us? Also get some pictures of the hot PBX operator lady while she is routing calls.
