If You Know The Exact Location....

In the basement where this is happening, (or have someone walk back and forth to make the noise while you listen and watch below) you can effect a solution by taking a hammer and gently pounding near the edge of the sheet metal where it meets the joist. The idea is to get enough deflection into the sheet metal so the "oil canning" stops. It may sound crude, but will work!
Hope this helps,
Good Luck!
