Thanks. Yes, the problem is just me learning how to use this. I have it now.
To use in a similar way to Audacity where you have a sample of the noise, you have to do the following:
Insert RX as an insert on the noisy track.
Take RX out of Adaptive mode. Adaptive mode will subtract the music itself and lower the level. That was a problem. Adaptive mode removes too much. It must think that my instruments are 'noisy'.
Then when you get to a place in the track with just the noise, hit LEARN. It turns blue. Then hit again to stop learning. Make sure you don't catch any of the real wanted sound in there. I was doing that too, so it was subtracting the sound.
The spectrum it shows you should be the spectrum of the noise, not the music.
Now play the whole track, keeping out of adaptive mode, and it will use that noise sample.
There is no reduction in level when you do it this way. Just the background noise is gone.
This used to take me a long time going in and out of Audacity. Worth th $29 for sure!
What I like is I can automate the threshold and reduction throughout the clip. As instruments fade into reverb, you can ride the threshold to make it sound natural, but low noise at the same time.
