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! It’s an efficient video editing app for Windows and Mac that can also be used as audio noise reduction software.
