BIAS today announced that SoundSoap 2.1 – a major update of the company’s audio noise reduction software plug-in and application for Mac OS X and Windows XP – is now available. In addition to several enhancements to both the Mac and Windows editions, the Mac edition is now Universal and provides 100% native compatibility for both Intel-based and PPC Macs.
“One-click” Audio Cleaning
SoundSoap 2.1 provides high quality noise reduction while still being easy enough for average consumers to use effectively. SoundSoap 2.1 runs as an audio plug-in within AU, RTAS, and VST host applications on Mac OS X or within RTAS and VST hosts applications on Windows XP. In addition, SoundSoap 2.1 runs as a stand alone application.
SoundSoap 2.1’s strength is that it depends upon highly advanced digital signal processing to do the “heavy lifting,” without forcing users to confront a bevy of confusing controls. By clicking the Learn Noise button and adjusting just two knobs, even an audio novice can instantly remove most common problems such as hiss, fan noise from air conditioners, and other background noise.
Noises such as clicks, crackles, hum, and rumble can also be easily removed with the click of a button and adjustment of a simple slider. Whether used for cleaning up digitized audio from vinyl LPs or cassettes, reducing background noise from digital videos, or improving the sound of lectures, podcasts, and other recordings, SoundSoap 2.1 offers effective noise reduction easily and affordably.

SoundSoap 2.1 is available now for all registered users of SoundSoap 2 as a free download from the BIAS web site.
