Step 1: Load An Existing Recording or Record A Tape

Run the software and click "Load A Sound File" or go through the steps to record a tape

Step 2: Select A Noise Reduction Effect

On the bottom of the "Preview And Edit Your Recording" screen, you will be able to choose "Tape Noise BeGone" from the drop down box.



Click "Play" to listen to your recording without tape noise.

Step 3: Preview The Recording Without Noise

Click the "Play" button to listen to the recording without noise. If it sounds warbly or as if its under water, it means that it needs a better "noise print". The noise print is a part of the recording that is just noise and not music. The software subtracts the noise print out of the music to create noise-free music.

To automatically choose another noise print, click "Next Noise".



The noise print will look like this:

If it"s still not sounding great, you can try right clicking on a noisy area and choose "Set As Noise Print". (Make sure to not choose an area with music.) Right click on the noise print and choose "Play Noise Print" to hear what it sounds like.

You can also drag and drop the noise print.

If it"s sounding like it"s under water or warbly, check out the noise reduction troubleshooting faq.
