The Ultimate Noise Removal Tool - Crumplepop Plugin Review

Noises in audio such as hisses, wind noise, and unwanted echoes can destroy the quality of your project. Fortunately, several tools can help editors easily remove these unwanted noises. In this blog post, let’s talk about the CrumplePop plugin, the ultimate noise-removal tool. I will discuss all the amazing features this tool has.

Introducing CrumplePop

CrumplePop is a plugin software that uses AI to make audio sound good. It has a lot of features that are specifically designed to remove a certain audio noise. I personally believe that CrumplePop is the Swiss Army Knife of noise removal tools and is the ultimate noise removal tool every editor needs.

The CrumplePop plugin works with most major audio and video editing applications such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Audition, Final Cut Pro, and DaVinci Resolve. It is available in both AU and VST plugin formats. As for the pricing you can check the plans here.

CrumplePop Noise Removal Features

Tool #1: TrafficRemover

TrafficRemover is the tool you will use if you want to remove car traffic noise from your video or audio. This feature is easy to use. Just go to Effects > AU > CrumplePop Complete > TrafficRemover Complete.

Auto Draft

On the TrafficRemover tab, you’ll be presented with a few settings you can manipulate. First, is the on/off button. Once you turn it on, this tool will automatically do its job in detecting and removing traffic noises.

You can see a waveform of the original audio (in pink) and the audio removed (in green). If you are not satisfied with the result, you can manually decrease or increase the Strength dial. Moreover, you can manipulate the Frequency dials located on the lowest part of the window to increase or decrease the effect on specific frequencies (low, mid, or high).

Tool #2: ClipRemover

The second noise removal tool in CrumplePop is the ClipRemover. This is specifically used to remove audio clipping, a form of distortion in the waveform that happens when the level is too high for the system.

Similar to TrafficRemover, ClipRemover can be easily manipulated. There’s an on/off button on the topmost right of the window and a Threshold dial at the center. Moreover, a waveform is also present to see the original (in pink) and removed audio (in blue).

Another common unwanted noise in recordings is plosives or those blasts of air hitting the microphone often after sounds like “p” and “b”.
