RNNoise noise remover

Minimum OBS Studio Version
Supported Platforms
  1. Windows
Noise suppression plugin based on Jean-Marc Valin's RNNoise (or, more accurately, Gregor Richards's fork rnnoise-nu). Uses a recurrent neural network (fancy machine learning stuff) trained on various sets of community-submitted noise. It's fairly light on CPU usage.

Unlike the RNNoise support shipped with OBS Studio since version 26.0, you can choose between multiple noise reduction models that are tuned for slightly different use cases (e.g. "clean" recording environment vs. busy environment). These models may work slightly better for you.

Demo video (with various types of quite aggressive noise):

It should be possible to build this on all platforms, but at this time I can only offer a pre-built version for Windows. The installer is linked in the description of the source code repository.

The plugin might work with OBS Studio 24.x and older but I have only tested it with version 25.0 and newer. Feedback welcome!

This cuts first consonants less often than the included RNNoise method does!
would be way better if it could be manually tuned but still good
Yeah well, unfortunately this is based on magic (machine learning) so there isn't really any way to tune anything, pretty much by design. And I didn't even make the models myself, so that makes it even less possible for me to change anything about it.
In theory it would be possible for someone to try their own models and get them in there, but I haven't implemented a mechanism to supply your own models, and creating a model yourself is perhaps a bit too much work for most people.
It cleans up noise pretty well, but when I apply it to my mic track it causes approx. 1.6-1.7 second delay (it's permanent and doesn't increase or decrease over time) for computer audio track which doesn't even have this effect applied.
Hmm, I didn't get a notification, sorry for the late response. This is definitely not normal. Unfortunately these things can be quite hard to troubleshoot and this is a hobby project I don't have that much time to spend on, so I'm kind of doubtful I can help you resolve this. Sorry!
Works as intended. Nice job!
Great stuff. I've just made a home-made studio light which uses a bench power supply and this noise filter cuts the fan noise perfectly!
Melhor plugin de redução de ruidos , faz milagres ! , Muito obrigado aos criadores o//.
