During the self-quarantine we now live in, we adapted remote work more widely as a result of a global crisis. We are using communication software more than ever now. But, sometimes there is a problem you probably already have faced: Disturbing background noises during video or voice calls. Luckily, there is a solution for that: Krisp, the noise canceling software.

What is Krisp?

Krisp is a software that removes background noise during calls. The noise cancelling app works bi-directionally, you won’t hear the sound coming from other call participants, and they won’t hear your background noises too. It works smoothly in real-time without lags, so your calls will be uninterrupted and completely noiseless.

How Krisp works, what is the technology behind?

Krisp Microphone sits between your physical microphone and your preferred conferencing and recording apps. Krisp app based on Deep Neural Networks. They have collected and listened to datasets of 20K distinct noises and 10K clear voices of different ages, gender, and ethnicity. The collected data fed the software. It processes real-time audio using its innovative AI-powered noise cancellation technology and separates background noise from your voice. Plus, the software also provides the option to reduce background noise from the other participants of the call. The idea may seem simple to you, but the technology is advanced. For all the privacy concerns: Krisp never sends audio from your machine to its servers. All the processing happens on the local device. Your sound is not saved on the disc as well.

How to reduce background noise on the microphone with Krisp?

Setting up Installing and getting the app up and running is fast and easy. Just download the package from the Krisp website and follow the on-screen instructions. Krisp is available for both macOS and Windows. The app has a pretty simple interface. You just get two options; one to select Speaker and the other to choose mic source.

It works on all kinds of communication apps.
