President Obama's ISIS address

You know how presidents stride manfully up to a platform in the East Room of the White House and make important addresses to the nation? Well, the East Room is nice, but it really sucks as a recording venue.

On an impulse, I snagged a section of President Obama’s address on ISIS to see what could be done with it. ‘turns out it would be hard to NOT improve it. This clip contains "alternating samples." Each sample contains a series of phrases. Each phrase is repeated once for before-and-after comparison.

I removed overall background noise, room echo plus individual sibilance and mouth noises. (Yes, I really over-did it on the sibilance.)

This sample is for demonstration purposes and is rather severely treated to demonstrate what can be done. In real life, for instance, you might want to leave a little of the room echo for "realism."
