SoundSoap 4.0.0 Read Me

October 28, 2014

SoundSoap 4 is a high-quality noise reduction and audio restoration solution that's very easy to use. By adjusting just a few controls, anyone can remove or reduce unwanted hiss, room noise, rumble, electrical hum, clicks & crackles, and other background noise from almost any digital media file – including digital video (DV) soundtracks, PowerPoint and other presentation software soundtracks, Flash and other web-tool soundtracks, digital audio workstation tracks, cassette or other analog tape recordings, vinyl LP recordings, and other sources. SoundSoap 4 was designed by listening to the suggestions of audio and video editors who all had one thing in common – noisy audio, and the desire to clean it up quickly and easily.

SoundSoap 4 offers a number of new features and enhancements, including: 

• De-clipping - correct distortion on audio that distorts because it was recorded to loud

• Boost - powerful signal processing that increases the loudness of the audio without introducing distortion

• Track - automatically reduce noise reduction amounts on louder passages, reducing the number of artifacts introduced by noise reduction

• Support for writing high resolution 24-bit AIFF and WAVE files (Mac)

• Audio waveform display when opening audio-only media

• Other User Interface Enhancements
