Thread Name: Removing barking with Audacity?
Subject: RE: Removing barking with Audacity?
Now (for a change) a serious proposal, though not really likely to succeed, and a lot of work:

All the barks seems to be copies of a single recorded bark, which can be heard alone at the beginning. Now, if this were a digital mixing, and if it were an uncompressed format such as .wav rather than .mp3, you could try to literally subtract the barks from the song, perhaps with varying amplification. (No toungue-in-cheek this time!)

With the mp3 format, one might still achieve a substantial reduction, but if the mixing was done from non-digital tapes, my (uninformed) guess is that chances are little. I wonder what Matt thinks of this ides. --

Somewhere I read that the Lassie from the films was actually a dozen of male dogs (which are easier to train). So indeed you can't shoot Lassie, he will be resurrected whenever a new generation of kids asks for her.
