Record A Noisy instrument?
Hey Ardourful Musicians!
I picked up an old bontempi electric (not electronic) organ in my neighbor's trash (score... they also supplied me with my speakers. I love garbage day).
It's a great buzzy harmonizing instrument. The problem though is the great deal of fan noise that it generates. I've considered opening her up to give her a clean out, but I lack the proper tools at the moment.
I'd like to know how I can remove the background noise in post without sacrificing the true sound of the instrument. It's worth mentioning that the fan's noise changes quality and intensity depending on how the instrument is played (number of keys pressed mostly).
