Audio Files - Smooth

Hi,

For a course,
1. I have human voice recording done for a course. There are 20 small VLC files for the course.
2. However, since it was not done professionally - it has background noise.
3. I am trying to use audacity, however, it would mean that I need to convert each VLC file to WAV file, and then reduce noise.
4. This seems a very time consuming option.
5. Is there a better way to remove background noise.

    Audacity is the go-to tool for me and my team. It gives you all the necessary things to clean up audio files for free.

    VLC is just a player like Windows Media Player, iTunes, etc.

    Audacity is fully scriptable.

    You could automate the process fairly easily.

    There is no such thing as a "VLC file." VLC can play a wide range of file types. What is the actual file type you are dealing with?

    @carlfink - The file type being mentioned is as the screenshot below.
    Audacity doesn't accept this file type; I had to convert them to WAV.

    @andrew-robertson - Thank you. Its just that I have the files as VLC. I had to convert all of them to wav as audacity accepts only WAV files.

    Will explore audacity in detail.

    hmm super odd, I've never heard of VLC file holding any sort of audio only a playlist of audio pieces similar to M3U. That being said, if your files are in MP3 they will open in Audacity.

    Your screencap says the file is a WAV already.
