Producing videos and podcasts is often a race against time. To build an audience, content creators need to make great content – and lots of it – but timelines are tight. For the last 13 years, CrumplePop has made tools that help editors save time and budget, so they can focus on telling their story.
Throughout our years in video production, we often ran into tricky, time-consuming audio problems with no obvious tools that could help. Whether it was a room that had too much echo, a distracting computer fan in the background or a gust of wind destroying an excellent take – the audio restoration plugins available were expensive, difficult to use, and often underperformed.
So we turned our focus to creating audio restoration software.
We started to imagine what audio restoration plugins might be most beneficial for video people. We’d discuss the audio issues we had encountered before. “I’d love a plugin that removes noise from video,” “What if we found a way to remove echo from audio?” and “maybe, one day, we’ll be able to remove wind noise” is often how these conversations would start. It was sort of in the spirit of “You know what would be cool? A flying car.” It seemed exciting but more or less science fiction.
We started by creating AudioDenoise, an audio plugin that can quickly and easily remove background noise from an air conditioner or fan. Then we moved on to what seemed like an impossible dream: Removing echo and reverb. From there, it felt like we could expand this basic idea to more common types of problem noise. That’s when we started to look into what AI could offer video and audio editors. Our first AI plugin, WindRemover AI, removed wind noise from audio – something we initially thought might be impossible. We’ve continued to find new and – might we even say – exciting ways to help solve everyday audio and video production problems, like finding ways to remove pops and plosives and automatically level your audio.
Over the years, our focus has been to keep our tools simple and easy to use. You don’t need to be an audio professional to use our audio restoration plugins. Just turn the plugin on, and you’re ready to go. Maybe because of this, CrumplePop has a loyal and enthusiastic base of users who appreciate the almost magical quality of our audio restoration software. We hope you will try out the free trial versions of our plugins and join them.
