are there any free ones
does anybody know a free noise reduction plugin?
the only ones i know are the waves plugins and digidesign ones but they are toooooo expensive.
I my experience, there is no real reason for needing to use the noise removal as a plugin. It is just as easy to remove the noise offline.
Two “free” programs that will remove noise very well are Audacity and GoldWave. Audacity really is free, but Goldwave is … shall we say “reminder-ware” as it keeps a running count of the cost of the features you have used.
CoolEdit 96. In demo mode it allows you to save and do noise remove. The fact that you can take “profiles” of the noice (like audacity) gives good acuracy. I belive that it is a little better than Audacity, that adds to ne “de-noised” file a methalic sound. (you must google it because is not more available at the official page)
Also you can try “Wavepurity”, a cheap audioeditor that have nice noise removal tools (www.wavepurity.de)
thanks for the tips, but really want a plugin!

Keep in mind that do a accurate de-noise use intensively the cpu. Im not sure you will found some high quality realtime plugin like this offline ones.
You can give a look here, to see what you found
Kvr-Vst Noise Removal
Maybe if you could tell us WHY you wanted a plugin, it might help us to answer you.
There are several noise removal plugins that work in pseudo-real-time. I know that Sonic Foundry was offering such a plugin in a bundle with some other noise abatement plugins. Check their site out.
Like Marce said, you will always do a better job at noise removal if you do it on the recorded wav file. (Though I do not agree with his assessment of Audacity’s noise removal ability. You just need to turn the noise removal down to the lowest setting).
i often do re-mastering or whatever you name it and i did this in protools always with plugins (waves, DINR).
first the NR plug and then the “master FX” so i can hear and if NR amount is enough after limitation eq…
just a better workflow - for me.
and the build in NR of for example cool edit i don
t like.<br>but i will try voxengos one.
all the others are too expensive for the use.
i just hoped there is a free one, but it doesn`t seem so.
thanks for your answers!
FWIW, it’s no big deal in Goldwave, not quite as easy as a plug in, but still quick, and it seems to me to be pretty good at it - I’ve cleaned up some pretty bad things with it, and occasionally my friends have actually been impressed. How often does that happen?
