*I would like to rate this product 9.5, but that's not an option. My apologies to Soundness for the lower rating of 9/10.
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.
Slick, clean GUI.
Also useful with video files.
Hiss and Buzz — SOAPED.
Hum and Rumble — SOAPED.
Clicks and Crackles — SOAPED.
Background noise and unwanted voices — SOAPED.
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.
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.
