Are you in a noisy environment? Need to filter out all the nuisances? NoiseTorch for Linux seems like a really great open source tool you need to check out.

If you want noise canceling I would highly recommend PulseEffects (which uses PipeWire).

  • Doesn’t require sudo password.
  • Has a nice UI instead of the really awkward one that NoiseTorch has.
  • Supports auto-start.
  • Automatically stops the processing if no apps are recording.
  • Has other effects for both input and output if you want them.

I used to use NoiseTorch but as soon as PulseEffects added support for RNNoise (the same library that NoiseTorch uses) I made the switch and couldn’t be happier!

The PulseEffects dev is also very friendly and responsive and is working on porting it to GTK4.

PulseEffects is an interesting project but I think each has their own use and audience. For NoiseTorch, it does one thing and does it well, rather than overload people with options.

For sure, to each their own. I’m glad that we have multiple options available.

I agree that there is more UI for PulseEffects (even if I think it is nicer) and it can take a second to take it all in. (And I wish there was an obvious way to shut it off.)

All about open source! Feel free to ask questions, and share news, and interesting stuff!
