BIAS has released version 2.4 of SoundSoap, the audio restoration software for Windows and Mac.

The update offers new localized tool tips, compatibility with the latest Pro Tools 8 software from Avid, and additional enhancements.

SoundSoap 2.4 provides high quality noise reduction while still being easy enough for average consumers to use effectively. The standard retail edition of SoundSoap 2.4 includes an audio plug-in for AU, RTAS/AS, and VST host applications on Mac and Windows plus a standalone application edition.

While competing solutions can tend toward complexity, SoundSoap 2.4’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 2.4 offers effective noise reduction easily and affordably. When compared to other low-cost solutions aimed at cleaning up music and speech, SoundSoap 2.4 delivers superior results as independent reviews and tests consistently demonstrate.

SoundSoap 2.4 is available to purchase for PC and Mac for a suggested retail price of $129 USD. BIAS is also offering SoundSoap SE (stand alone edition) at $49.95 USD for a limited time. A free 14-day trial of SoundSoap 2.4 can be found on the BIAS website. Registered users of SoundSoap 2 can download the update at no cost.
