I find Audacity works perfectly well for noise reduction on vocal or
non-distorted guitar tracks. Anything with a lot of treble content seems
to develop a background 'mush' underneath the audio, but not there in the
So after this conversation I decided to go check and see if there had been improvements in the noise reduction in Audacity. There has been, and fairly significant, at least it is usable now for certain materials, but it still doesn't hold much against other solutions out there. Granted I only checked with a boom recording from a shoot I did a little bit back, but yes there are definitely still artifacts there, and possibly worse is a reduction(Not huge, but noticable) of consonant sounds reducing intelligibility slightly, especially on quieter parts.
Still overall much better than it used to be, and if I needed to do a quick cleanup I might consider it now at least, that is a huge step from where it was. But my preferred method is still using some proprietary plugins I own for this.
