Enhance audio for your audience to hear you clearly

Oftentimes, we have unwanted background noise in our videos because of things out of our control. You might be interviewing people on the spot in public and a plane flies above you or you’re working from home and your kids are being kids. Nonetheless, Kapwing’s Automatic Background Remover provides you with audio intelligence that cleans your audio by correcting loud noises, lessening the severity of popping sounds, and isolating speech within the noise.

Automatically Remove Background Noise from Audio

Reducing noise from your videos shouldn’t be difficult. You should have full control over your content from start to finish.

The amount of noise in the background of your videos can be very distracting to your viewers, whether they like it or not. There are many noise removal tools out there that can remove background noise from audio, but you’d have to download the apps or install new software like Camtasia and Audacity. That’s why we built a noise remover powered by audio intelligence you can use online.

Kapwing’s background noise remover is a noise cancelling tool that cleans the audio in your videos by isolating speech patterns, reducing background noise, and removing background hums. No need to learn heavy-duty, complex audio editors like Adobe Audition or iMovie. If you livestream or host your own podcast and use microphones like the Blue Snowball, you can remove unwanted background noise from your videos in only one click.

Let your video and audio editing tools do the heavy-lifting for you while you do what you do best: create valuable content and engage your community across every platform.

[Subtitler] is able to autogenerate subtitles for video in almost any language. I'm deaf (or almost deaf, to be correct) and thanks to Kapwing I'm now able understand and react on videos from my friends :)

By the far the most user friendly software to use.
As a housewife at home looking to start a Youtube channel for fun with absolutely zero editing experience, it was so easy for me to teach myself via their YouTube channel. It takes the tediousness out of editing and encourages creativity. As long as Kapwing is around, I will be using their software.

Love this site.
As a English Foreign Language Teacher, this site helps me to quickly subtitle interesting videos that I can use in class. The students love the videos, and the subtitles really help them to learn new vocabulary as well as better understand and follow the video.

Excellent subtitling features
[It] works perfectly for me. Have been using Kapwing for a year or so, and their automatic subtitle tool gets better and better every week, it's rare that I have to correct a word. Keep up the good work!
