My video recorder records sound in mono8 which of course comes with the all famous background noise for such a format.
I am wondering if it is better to convert it to mono16 and run it through a compressor and save my audio files in this format, which of course will double the file sizes.
or, is it just as viable to program an inline compressor on the source to remove the hiss?
both methods need to be programmable with java. I would really appreciate examples to do either method.
