Scrub up bad au­dio record­ings

Good sound is just as im­por­tant as what’s on the screen. We may have lit­tle con­trol over our sur­round­ings when shoot­ing with an iPhone, so VideoSoap helps scrub out un­wel­come back­ground noise.

VideoSoap re­moves hiss or noise, bright­ens up the over­all sound, and fixes poor vol­ume lev­els. It ac­com­plishes the first task by in­tel­li­gently analysing the sound you don’t want, such as an air con­di­tioner or traf­fic noise. As a clip plays, tap and hold Learn for a few sec­onds dur­ing the of­fend­ing sec­tion and the app ap­plies a fil­ter to re­duce or com­pletely re­move it from the en­tire clip.

En­hance and Boost slid­ers re­store sparkle to dull au­dio, ad­just low vol­ume lev­els, or fix clip­ping on overly loud tracks. The re­sults are quite spec­tac­u­lar and very easy to ac­com­plish, but head­phones are rec­om­mended. Video, along with cleaned au­dio, is copied to a new file with no qual­ity loss. J.R.

VideoSoap works magic on poor record­ings, but it needs up­dat­ing for Retina dis­plays and the iPhone 6.
