Except for unamplified dramatic performances or concerts where the audience is either used to sitting quietly or can be persuaded to listen quietly, high levels of amplifications are required so that the speech and music can still be heard above the self-noise generated by the crowd. Crowd noise can reach surprisingly high sound levels when several thousand people are shouting at each other, all at the same time. In this paper a method is presented that was used to isolate the crowd noise non destructively, so the raw instrumentation can be targeted in isolation. These isolated sources now become available for re-mixing and balancing.
