Moments of Clarity
Getting rid of stray noise from vocal recordings—whether it’s coming from traffic outside or the whirr of an air conditioner—can be trying. Waves Audio’s new noise reduction software plugin, Clarity Vx, addresses this problem by first isolating vocals from ambience and background noise and then removing those hums, hisses, and buzzes in real time and at the highest fidelity, without leaving any weird sonic artifacts. And you don’t need an engineering degree to figure out how to use it.
