How to Remove Background Noise from Audio and Video

If you’ve ever recorded video or audio, you’re probably all too familiar with the problem of background noise. Whether you’re making a family movie or recording a street interview using a microphone, it’s likely that the resulting footage will contain unwanted sounds: breathing, random voices, traffic noise, and other ambient sounds, or various hums and buzzes caused by mic defects.

If you find your video or audio has unwanted background noise, there’s no need to throw your work into the garbage. We have an easy solution for you – Movavi Video Editor Plus! It’s an efficient video editing app for Windows and Mac that can also be used as audio noise reduction software. To learn how to use Movavi Video Editor Plus for background noise removal, read our quick guide below.

Step 1. Install Movavi Video Editor Plus

Launch the program file you’ve downloaded and follow the installation instructions.

Step 2. Upload Media Files

Click the Add Files button and choose the video and/or audio file you want to fix. Then drag your file onto the Timeline.

Step 3. Remove Background Noise

To access the audio denoise function, click More Tools. Open the Audio Editing drop-down list and select Noise Removal.

To get rid of unwanted noise from your recorded material, adjust the Noise suppression slider and click Apply. Experiment with different slider values until you get the best results; be aware that higher levels of noise suppression may cause distortions in the sound.
