Issue

Hiss is loud, audio has been "gained-up" and shows apparent artifacts as such.

Record audio signal loud enough that gain will not have to be boosted to the point of introducing white noise.

Solution:

Decrease gain in the sections noted. Consider using a wild track or foley elements to achieve desired creative intent.
