However, some features may not be immediately apparent, so we hope you take some time to at least page quickly through the manual. That way, you won’t miss any of the Noise Reduction plug-in’s potential. The Sonic Foundry Noise Reduction DirectX plug-in actually contains four discrete plugins: Noise Reduction, Click and Crackle Removal, Vinyl Restoration, and Clipped Peak Restoration. There are sections in the manual devoted to the use of each plug-in. System requirements In order to use the Sonic Foundry Noise Reduction plug-in you will need the following: • • • • • • • • • CHP. 1 200 MHz processor (400 MHz recommended) 16 MB RAM (64 MB RAM) Windows 9x or Windows NT 4.0 or later DirectX Media 6.0 or later (included on CD-ROM) DirectX host application (Sound Forge 4.5, for example) Windows-compatible sound card VGA display CD-ROM drive for CD-based program installation 5 MB hard-disk space for program installation INTRODUCTION 6 Installation The install utility, SETUP.EXE, located on the setup CD-ROM, creates any necessary directories and copies all files required by the Noise Reduction plug-in. The Noise Reduction plug-in requires Microsoft DirectX Media Runtime 6.0 installed on your computer. The installation program will notify you if DirectX Media Runtime is not detected.

CHP. 1 7 Serial number and activation code The first time you start Noise Reduction, the registration window appears. You need to enter either the serial number or the activation code. Either number will start Noise Reduction. The serial number allows you to run Noise Reduction for 7 days. After the 7 days expire, Noise Reduction will time out. If you purchased Noise Reduction, you can receive your activation code by registering either online or by telephone. An activation code is based on the Computer ID number where Noise Reduction is loaded. Each computer has a unique number, similar to a license plate. An activation code is created based on that unique number. When you register Noise Reduction, Sonic Foundry will generate an activation code for you. Once the activation code is entered, Noise Reduction will not time out; it is yours. Because the activation code is based on the Computer ID, it is important that you have Noise Reduction loaded on the computer where you will be using it. The Computer ID is automatically detected and provided to you when you install Noise Reduction. Product registration The Registration dialog that appears when you start Noise Reduction allows you to quickly and easily register to get your activation code....
