SoundSoap-3 by Soundness is superb audio noise reduction software that comes in both application and plugin (VST, component, and RTS) form. Upon launching, I was immediately struck by a visually pleasing interface. The next thing I discovered was how straightforward, user-friendly, and intuitive it is to use this software. This is one of the rare audio editing tools that are easy to use, yet powerful. It does everything it claims to do, and it does it really well. There's plenty of control without any of the bloat that is often associated with editing software, i.e., you won't find a ton of unheard of features that make you scratch your head and ask, "What the?" SoundSoap-3 is easier, faster, and way more effective at removing noise than the filters and EQs that I've tried. It's a great product that is a pleasure to use. I no longer cringe when I discover audio noise on my tracks.

THOUGHTS:

  • Slick, clean GUI.
  • 64-bit compatible.
  • Effective algorithms.
  • Also useful with video files.
  • Hiss and Buzz — SOAPED.
  • Hum and Rumble — SOAPED.
  • Clicks and Crackles — SOAPED.
  • Background noise and unwanted voices — SOAPED.

CRAZY THOUGHTS:

  • Next time I record I just might turn up the amps, turn on a fluorescent lights, and crank the A/C just so I can soap them clean before mixing.
  • Users can throw out the dirty bathwater and keep the baby.
  • My old sample library will soon be made clean.

SUMMARY

I'm a clean freak, and nothing bothers me more than dirty audio tracks. SoundSoap is my mop; it's my broom; it's my sponge; it's my. .. you get the idea! Best of all is the price. It's a super value for what it does and how well it does it. If I only used it on a couple tracks I would feel compensated for my investment. If you are a well-paid pro, working in a top-notch studio, I'm sure there are more powerful options that do more; yet, for everyone else, this probably does what you need for a fraction of the cost and without the headaches. I highly recommend this software to any pros or hobbyist, who is working with recorded audio and needs fast and effective results. Tommy Zai gives SoundSoap-3 two squeaky clean thumbs up. Thank you, Soundness, for developing such a useful, rewarding, and satisfying audio noise reduction software.

VERSION 4 RELEASE USER REVIEW THOUGHTS

Soundness just released a significant update to SoundSoap. Without hesitation I upgraded to the new version v4, and I have no regrets. The latest release adds some cool features. The Loudness Maximizer is sweet — the perceived auto signal is boosted without any added noise, distortion, or other goop. This is very nice. The Declipper is a feature that makes me wonder how I got along without it. I've had countless tracks along the way that suffered from a distorted spike or two. In the past, my options were limited. I either used SoundSoap to remove some of the unwanted stuff and then normalized the peak and lived with that rough segment of audio. Whatever algorithm they are using to declip is top notch (pun intended) and effortlessly corrects nasty spikes. The update/changes list includes several other improvements and fixes that I'm sure I will uncover as I soap up additional dirty tracks. Yet, the Loudness Maximizer and Declipper feature were enough to make me smile and increase my user review rating. Fanstastic! SoundSoap is evolving. I can't wait to see what v5 looks and sounds like!

Update Conclusion: SoundSoap v4 remains user-friendly and will continue to appeal to home studio musicians, and with the new features, seasoned professionals will find it hard to resist.
