A Home Studio MUST

Having tried to use gates, EQ and some gosh-awful plugin chains to eliminate unwanted noise with unsatisfactory results I was absolutely blown away with this little jewel. I managed to catch it on sale but it's worth every bit of the list price and then some, Just Dial it in to reduce as much as you want and BINGO! Clean audio! It's an absolute must for me - first plug in my VO audio chain.

Works Like a Champ

It works just like it should. Cuts down on guitar amplifier noise, even does its magic on old analog tape recordings to eliminate tape hiss.

Good for minor noise

The reviews I read made this sound better than it is. This will remove very minor noise. AC, light bulb hum, etc. Has a hard time with high gain hiss, or anything substantial. You can't push it too hard or else it will affect the sound you DO want. I'm glad I have it, but I will be seeking another noise remover for the heavy lifting.


Fair still working on it , but vocal not bad still on it.
