Christian Budde Noise Reduction

Christian Budde has releaed Noise Reduction, a VST plugin containing a spectral noise gate optimized build to remove unwanted noise.

The Noise Reduction plugin is based on a spectral gate to filter out unwanted noise in the frequency domain. The gate is based on the lightweight dynamic series and features a soft knee and customizable attack and release times.

Originally this plugin was planned for the KVR’09 developer contest, but in the end I missed the deadline by one day and thus I had to use another plugin for my entry.

Noise Reduction features

  • Highly customisable spectral noise gate
  • Continous and consistent characteristic
  • Fully adjustable soft knee in dB (as margin below the threshold)
  • Several exotic window functions available
  • Low CPU usage
  • Different FFT sizes
  • Manual included
  • Open source (as part of the Delphi ASIO & VST Project)

Noise Reduction is available to download as a freeware VST effect plug-in for Windows PC.
