Crackles, whooshes, and other noises can decimate a take, and if you're in an acoustically untreated environment, these distracting sounds are bound to creep into your recordings. That's where noise reduction plug-ins come in. Noise reduction plug-ins are great for music recordings, as well as video post-production, and can rid you of hisses, hums, wind, and other unwanted sounds.
Sweetwater stocks many types and brands of noise suppressor plug-ins, and each is suited to different needs. Our fader-based plug-ins may remind you of old-school processors. They allow you to manually set thresholds for individual bands until you achieve maximum noise reduction. This, of course, is done without destroying the original sound. If you want something simple to use, this is a prime choice. Plus, they can easily be automated!
Graphical noise reduction plug-ins, on the other hand, are more popular, but they take up a lot of resources when used live. They're great for rendering files, but are not the perfect choice for high track counts. But, they do offer tremendous creative freedom. With most our plug-ins, you have a huge array of variables to tinker with!
As you decide on your noise reduction plug-in, you need to make sure that it's compatible with your system. We offer products for both Mac and PC, in AU, AAX, RTAS, VST, and most other popular formats.
If you already have a product but it's getting a bit outdated, Sweetwater’s got you covered! We offer both full versions of noise reduction plug-ins as well as upgrades. And if you're a student or teacher, you'll be glad to know that we also carry academic versions of noise reduction plug-ins at a discounted price.
