BBC receives 545 vuvuzela complaints over World Cup

Up your arse. The sound feed from the stadium isn't picked up by the fucking commentators mics's you wanker. Kill the frequencies of the horns picked up by the stadium mic's and overlay the commentary on top of the already modified feed.

I agree theyre completely fucking annoying, but why are people complaining to the BBC? What do they expect the BBC to do about it? They have no control over the matches or the stadiums... hell they dont even have control over the TV cameras.

The camera and audio feeds from the stadium will be supplied by the broadcaster over there. The audio feeds from the commentators are the BBC's own (for the absolutely definitive answer on whether I'm correct or talking bollocks, you'll have to turn to Jamey. For advice on all other aspects of audio, especially Non-Lossy Compression, please contact Mr S. Agent).

The BBC could, in theory, fuck with the feed they buy from the broadcasters and stick theirs on top. The only issue would be one of copyright (or something). I imagine it would be viewed in much the same way as the BBC showing the matrix trilogy but completely changing the dialogue because the original was embarrasingly trite.

You just watch. Next years Britain's Got Talent will feature 16 Plastic trumpet bands.

Kahlina speaks the truth.

It's technically possible for them to modify the feed before it gets to the stage where they add the commentators' voiceover.

The question would be whether they had the rights to do it. There may well be something in the contract stating that they can't alter it in any way except to add their own commentary.

It would, however, still cut some of the normal crowd noise as well. Probably quite a lot, actually.

It's a bit like when you watch TV shows like Spooks and they "enhance the picture" by zooming in and it's magically not pixelated and is suddenly crystal clear. The reality is that you can slightly improve things with technology but it wouldn't be an amazing difference.

It can sound very compressed at times. I used to remove vocals from songs to make "backing tracks" for club singers (hey, it's a job) and you always get some residual. It's fine if someone is singing over it but it's not a pleasant effect if not. It's a bit like when your ears suddenly get bunged up.

What pisses me off more is all the fucking slow motion shit there doing this world cup. Slow motion of tackles and general play are fine as they show what happened, but slow motion of managers rubbing there eyes or players screaming in anger after they let a goal in? pointless.

Its not new. Theyre doing it more often during this World Cup I agree, but its not a new technique. Ive been wondering for years why I need to see managers goal celebrations in slow mo.

Just got sent this - no idea if it works:

How to tune out the vuvuzela buzz on a TV

Step 1: enter the sound settings for your TV, find the equaliser.

Step 2: drop the 233Hz / 300Hz [or closest] channel (which Samsung TVs have, second from left), and raise the adjacent levels.

Step 3: save as a custom setup (if you can).

Repeat for 466, 932 and 1864Hz

gave it a try on a Samsung TV, and while it doesn’t remove the vuvuzela noise completely, it does tone it down. It also takes some of the depth out of the commentary, as voices sound less rounded and full bodied, perhaps no bad thing.

The settings should work on most TVs where you can make changes to the sound levels in this way, but if they don’t on your television you do have another option.

Method B:

Play the sound through your PC sound card. Run the free program Audacity and set up notch [cancellation] filters at frequencies 233, 466, 932 and 1864Hz
