Waves X-Noise
The Waves Ltd. X-Noise was quite easy to install and was a process that was error and pain free.  I had the plug-in working within a few minutes and haven't had any problems with it since.  I didn't have any compatibility issues or other problems at all and the interface was pretty easy to figure out.  The interface has parameters for release and reduction as well as attack and release in the dynamics section and a high shelf that has parameters for gain and frequency.  It also has resolution options and a variety of metering and graphs.  Everything is easy to follow and is laid out smartly.  The typical functions are easy to find and a manual isn't needed to learn the plug.


While I generally only use the Waves Ltd. X-Noise one at a time, I've never had any problems running it.  I currently have it running on a Mac Book Pro that has a 2.2 Ghz Intel Core 2 Duo processor and 4 GB of RAM.  I use the plug-in in Pro Tools LE 7.4 that runs with a Digi 002R audio interface and have also used it on a Pro Tools HD system.  No matter which system I am using, I've never had any problems whatsoever running this and I can't imagine a situation where you would even need to run more than one of these at once anyway...


All in all, I think that the Waves Ltd. X-Noise really does a great job of eliminating noise without killing the rest of your signal.  While I try to avoid too much noise from the get go, sometimes it can be avoided and this plug-in does me a big favor when it eliminates noise for me.  It is great for use for traditional recording and during mixing but is also great for cleaning up older recordings or even vinyl transfers.  The plug-in isn't as cheap as you would like it to be, but I've really come to expect that from Waves plug-ins.  If you are looking for a great plug-in for cleaning up noise during mixing or otherwise, I don't think that you can get too much better than the Waves Ltd. X-Noise.
