Remove mic noise on linux with EasyEffects
Aug 28, 2022, 4:47 PM
EasyEffects is an application that allows you easily filter audio streams in linux.
EasyEffects, previously called PulseEffects, is a software that allows you to apply filters to audio inputs and outputs. it has several filter options and is very useful if you want to remove noise from your microphone or even remove audio from other peoples microphones on a discord vc.
( To set that up you just pick your input, go to the effects tab and add a noise reduction filter. pretty easy)
(also it requires pipewire, so you'll have to set that up on your system if you haven't already.)
This was just an exemple, but if you know how to mess with audio filters the functionality goes a lot further than this.
It allows you to select which programs have their audio filtered.
The application features equalizer, noise reduction, deesser, limiter, compressor and a lot of other filters , all with various settings you can tweak.
Honestly i don't even understand about audio filters that well and even i ended up with a pretty decent result just by fucking around and finding out, also the defaults are pretty good aswell, so that helps a lot too.
Check out Easyeffects on github!
so yeah i think this is a pretty useful application and i just wanted to talk about it.
might do more stuff like this on the future?
