[prMac.com] San Rafael, California - Audio technology company, Soundness is pleased to announce availability of SoundSoap+, based on the award-winning SoundSoap audio noise reduction software for Mac and Windows. SoundSoap is consumer-friendly software that solves audio noise problems like unwanted hiss and background noises, clicks, pops, crackles, electrical hum, rumble, clipping, and low volume in media files. SoundSoap+ includes all the features of SoundSoap, and provides several powerful additional controls for pinpoint accuracy in audio restoration work.
SoundSoap is so easy to use that even average consumers can use it to fix audio noise problems, without requiring any audio expertise. SoundSoap is ideal for anyone creating videos, screencasts, podcasts, LP restoration, music, or dialogue. SoundSoap works as a full-featured standalone application or as an audio software plug-in for use in popular applications like Final Cut Pro X, Adobe Premiere, Pro Tools, Logic X, GarageBand, Sonar, Adobe Audition, and Digital Performer.
"This new edition of SoundSoap+has some exciting new innovations", said Steve Berkley, Founding Member of Soundness LLC. "We are thrilled to provide some of the additional controls and features the audio restoration community was asking us for."
An innovative Broadband Range Control sets the range of frequencies where broadband noise reduction is applied - great for reducing artifacts and surgical placement of noise reduction in the frequency spectrum. A downward expander with adjustable compression ratio and threshold provides very effective control over low-level noisy audio. Several additional tone enhancement presets are available for the multi-band compressor and provide more control over which audio frequencies are enhanced - great for enhancing vocals and action camera footage. SoundSoap+ also provides a control for the number of hum harmonics removed from the audio. Adjustable low and high-cut filter controls assist in eliminating hiss, rumble, and and other high and low-frequency issues. SoundSoap+ also provides a threshold control to adjust the audio level in the Track and Downward Expander features.
SoundSoap+ works as a standalone application and as Audio Unit, VST, and AAX audio plug-ins. The SoundSoap+ plug-ins require Mac OS 10.6 or later, and the standalone version requires Mac OS 10.9 or later. The Windows version of SoundSoap+ works on Windows 7, 8, and 10, and includes the standalone application as well as VST and AAX plug-ins. The standalone version of SoundSoap+ reads all major audio and video file formats, including QuickTime, H.264, CAF, MP4, MP3, FLAC, WAV and AIFF.
