The clicking noise is not a mechanical sound ;rather an artificially created sound effect.

What is wrong with this sentence ,
according to me ->
Since after ; we must have independent clause and "rather an ..." has no subject so this is wrong .
would this be correct ?

The clicking noise is not a mechanical sound but rather an artificially created sound effect. OR
The clicking noise is not a mechanical sound , but rather an artificially created sound effect. (notice the comma before but).

Please help !!!

The only time that you will use a comma with a conjunction is if there are independent clauses on either side of the comma. You also have a parallelism issue here, the best sentence is this:

The clicking noise is not a mechanical sound but rather a sound effect created artificially.
