BIAS debuted SoundSoap Pro 2, a major upgrade to the award-winning professional audio noise reduction and
restoration software plug-in for Mac and Windows operating systems. SoundSoap Pro combines four powerful restoration tools – Broadband noise reduction; Click and Crackle removal; Hum removal; and a Noise Gate. Along with the company’s highly successful entry-level SoundSoap, BIAS provides high-quality noise reduction solutions for users at all levels.
SoundSoap Pro’s intelligent broadband noise reduction is significantly enhanced in version 2 by new adaptive noise reduction (ANR) algorithms from BIAS. “SoundSoap Pro 2 provides ‘super-intelligent’ noise reduction”, said Jason E. Davies, VP Sales & Marketing for BIAS, Inc. “Traditional approaches to broadband noise reduction require a selection of isolated noise in order to work effectively. In cases where the broadband noise changes over time — the results can suffer considerably unless the noise profile is re-learned and threshold and reduction settings are adjusted accordingly. SoundSoap Pro 2 addresses both scenarios effectively and automatically with minimal effort. For just a fraction of the cost of competing high-end software, or expensive dedicated hardware solutions, SoundSoap Pro 2 delivers amazing results.”
