In the middle of the desert you can say anything you want

Noise cancelling and pipewire

So, noisetorch says it’s potentially compromised: Release POTENTIAL COMPROMISE · noisetorch/NoiseTorch.

An improvement for the previous more dramatic formulation: Community code review? · noisetorch/NoiseTorch@b4bb8e6

This project is dead, i’ve failed you.

Thoughts and prayers (honestly! I loved it), with a heavy heart I keep looking.

Option1: werman/noise-suppression-for-voice: Noise suppression plugin based on Xiph’s RNNoise

Reading how to install it made me very sad, kept looking.

Saw EasyEffects mentioned, but it runs on Pipewire.

TIL Pipewire is a Pulseaudio replacement.

Installed via this guide: How to install PipeWire on Ubuntu Linux - Linux Tutorials - Learn Linux Configuration

Installed and ran EasyEffects using flatpak:

flatpak install easyeffects
flatpak run com.github.wwmm.easyeffects

EasyEffects' GUI looks awesome!

Had to choose another input source in pavucontrol, then once the input is piped thorugh it - the effect “Noise Reduction” works! Removes both keyboard and random background white noise.

You can even save the config as preset and make it run automagically on startup!

Nel mezzo del deserto posso dire tutto quello che voglio.
