I downloaded a thunder sound effect that I've added into a song. The sound effect fits perfectly with the timing of the music, but whenever the thunder roars I get a crackling sound in Ableton. I downloaded the sound effect from this website: http://naturesoundsfor.me/ When I listen to the sound effect from the website, there is no crackling sound. The sound can only be heard in Ableton Live.

I previously thought the crackling was because of the current speakers I am using, Rokit 5. When I listened to the song on another computer, the crackling was still there. Adjusting the volume in Ableton Live is not making a difference, whether the sound is loud or low, you can still hear the crackling when the thunder roars.

Is there a trick to removing the crackling sound without removing the thunder? The thunder adds heavily to the atmosphere of the song I am working on. I apologize if this is a silly question, for I am new to Ableton Live.

- Thanks

I imagine that they put some nice LOW end sounds to fill out the sound. stuff lower than what your system is designed for. try a high pass filter around 100Hz. take a look at the signal with Spectrum to see what you're not hearing but is causing the problem.

Hmm may have to peruse that site and I agree that using an EQ should help. Just listening to headphones I have a contant hiss even with fire turned all the way down for one of the samples.
