Soundsoap alternative

Hi folks,
Years ago a friend of mine used Soundsoap to easily cleanup audio.
Soundsoap has been defunct for years. Is there an alternative that can "learn noise" and extricate it as Soundsoap did?

I did see some rumblings about iZotope RX on this board but I have no clue if this is as good or the way to go.

Cheers!
Gilles

iZotope RX is the way to go. For starters, RX Elements .. I think it's $99 .. Works beautifully with Vegas.

Thanks Paul!
The price sounds like good value!

Does it have a "learn Sound" to extract the unwanted noise by listening to a sample like SoundSoap had?

Gilles, knowing your music skills, I think you'd be much happier with iZotope RX. It's more money but it has a LOT more features that I'm sure you'll end up using more and more.
Here's a comparison chart.

Thanks Mike ☺

It's that I inherited video interviews with atrocious bg noise on a whole lot of different tracks, different cameras. So I'm hoping for a quick method, like that of Soundsoap. Project has limited budget/time.

That was sooooo easy. Learn the noise, tweak the slider and the audio was magically "cleaned" to 90%... very acceptable in all cases.

I'll try Isotope and hope it's as simple. I don't have time to learn a whole variety of settings, etc.

Thanks!

[Gilles Gagnon] "I'll try Isotope and hope it's as simple. I don't have time to learn a whole variety of settings, etc."
Yeah, having read your posts on the COW over time, I don't think you're gonna get with iZotope. If they have a DEMO try and see/hear first.

As part of the "rumblings" I adore iZo RX and have been with it since 2007. I've seen/heard it improve and push out User friendliness and their VooDoo repair-algorithms to keep me wanting more and support their efforts.

Word to the wise? BG noise can be a real issue as it tends to be within the similar freqs as the target signal. But, the latest iZo6 Advanced, which I have does do this "Machine Learning" thing which is way cool.

Here's an offer, if you want to give me 10 second WAV of a typical TARGET and removal sample and I'll give a go in iZo6 ADVANCED.

Thanks so much for the offer Graham! Very kind of you.

I think I'll try the free trial and see how that goes. If I get a snag... I may come knocking lol.

It looks like it may do the trick though.

Izotope RX and Acon Digital Restoration Suite are the two best in the business Gilles!
