Something that I have been doing with my most recent vocals is to use a plugin that subtracts background noise from my vocal recording. This has helped noticeably boost the clarity of my vocal track.

The plugin is called ReaFir and is available for free use at the below link.

Kenny Gioia explains how to use Reafir in the below 13 minute video clip.

Interesting and useful. I wonder how much of this is done automatically in Ozone when you use the suggested settings?

Hi Neil,

I could be wrong but I think that it's the RX7 plugin that does noise removing in the iZotope family. I don't have any experience with this plugin but I suspect that it's very effective (given that Ozone is amazing).

Regards,
Noel

Sound-Guy has been using Band-in-a-Box® for many, many, many, many, many years - and we still managed to surprise him with some great new features! Read his latest review to learn more about his favorite additions for 2020!

"Band-in-a-Box continues to evolve as an expansive musical tool-set for both novice and experienced musicians to produce not only new compositions and arrangements, but also perform them with excellent musical “talent”. It also provides educational and training tools for keyboardists and guitarists. It’s easy to use the basic functions, and challenging enough to keep you occupied for years. BIAB provides education, inspiration, a “live” band to aid in practicing, and anything from backing tracks to full performances for recording."
