Sony Noise Reduction consists of four professional DirectX sound restoration plug-ins that can clean up your vinyl recordings and tracks, eliminating noise that has been accidentally introduced or unwanted and annoying sound sources from otherwise good recordings. To use them effectively, however, you need to know what you are doing.

Pros

Great performance: Sony Noise Reduction includes Audio Restoration, Clipped Peak Restoration, Noise Reduction, and Click and Crackle Removal, all of which work as advertised.

Plug-in settings: You start with the default values and, if the result is not satisfactory, you can adjust many settings. Once you are happy with the results, your custom settings can be saved for later use.

Free trial: The asking price of $280 does not allow room for errors. The fact that professional tools can be freely tested is a good thing.

Cons

Pricey: The asking price and the Sound Forge 8 prerequisite make this professional software an unattainable dream for the casual user.

Requires experimentation: To get your job done, you may have to test out different plug-ins for the same track and spend some time adjusting settings. If you have at least some technical knowledge, it will all be a lot easier.

Bottom Line

If you use Sound Forge, the Sony Noise Reduction plug-ins are an indispensable addition to your set of tools. Effective and extremely useful, they are ideal for the removal of all kinds of undesired noises and diversions. Besides, they are easily tunable via comprehensive settings. It's strictly for professionals, though.
