What is background noise removal

Ambient noises are all the unwanted sounds inevitably recorded along with the "main" soundtrack: background hums and sounds of nature, air conditioning, street traffic, etc. The best way to avoid them is to record your shooting in a sound-proof studio, but, of course, it’s not always possible.

That’s when noise reduction gets into the game. Lots of online tools and desktop applications can clean up audio. Smart algorithms effectively detect background sounds and eliminate them, making human speech clean and comprehensive.

Clideo’s Video Editor may be used as a noise cleaner for a video with some talk, but it’s much more than that. This online tool provides a "turn-key" video file editing. You can also create a project from scratch even if you don’t have any initial assets, as you can avail of inbuilt stock libraries or record video and/or audio right in the tool.

Follow this short instruction and perform an AI audio cleanup in three steps.

  1. Upload or create a recording

    Open the Video Editor in any browser. Hit the "Get started" button to open the editing pane.
