  1. 1
    We have the option of turning on this audio waveform and we also have the spectral version by clicking the red icon at the top.
    When we use the spectral audio waveform, this actually breaks down the audio into different frequencies. If we play the recording, we can see that the electronic noise is limited to that particular area of the waveform.

    We can use either the marquee tool or lasso tool to draw over that part of the waveform.
    The lasso tool will allow us to draw a more curvy line, but since this information seems to be limited to one area of the waveform, we can use the rectangular marquee tool.

    Once we've highlighted that, we're going to press the delete key.
    Now we can listen to how this sounds. In this example, we took the majority of that electronic noise out.

    There are still a couple of other bands where the noise is showing on the spectrum, so if we wanted to get a little more granular on this, we could delete those parts of the waveform as well, then listen to how it sounds.
