Default Dealing with hissing/background noise on Audition 3.0

I'm looking at dealing with a problem I have with a VA's lines in an audio project. The vocals are quiet, and the background hiss is very noticeable, obviously when the vocals are amplified so too is the hissing, and noise/hiss reduction in the restoration section is giving me a swooshing effect on the vocals.

Has anyone experienced similar problems and found a decent way around them, technically?

Cheers.

I'm not familiar with how the Audition 3.0 noise reduction works but I've found basically 2 different solutions that seem to remedy the background hiss issue. You can mix in the hiss throughout the scene so that it's uniform over all the voices. Not something I would recommend unless you just have no other choice. Or put in an ambient background sound effect like wind or rain or perhaps music. Just something loud enough to help cover the hiss. A lot of times, things I stress out about in the voice tracks become minor issues when the rest of the sound is added to the final mix. Good luck!

for a lot of hisses, running a highpass filter will remove some of it.
Then you can do noise removal.
Sometimes the sound gets damaged, though.

Old saying: If you want to make silk purse out of sows ear, start with silk sow.

Best solution is have the vo recorded at a proper level.
If that is not possible, make several lite passes with noise reduction
rather than with one sledge hammer.

You can only take out so much before you start hearing artifacts.
