The Save As dialog will appear. 3. From the Save as file type, choose the file format that you want to use. 4. Type a file name and click the OK button to save the mix to a new file.

Open the audio track you would like to process into an Audio View (from the Multi-track view, select Audio from the right-click pop-up menu.) 2. Press the Alt key and click and drag to select a region of time in one of the tracks which contains the background noise. (Consult the Cakewalk Pro Audio documentation.) 3. Right-click to open a pop-up menu, then choose Sonic Foundry Noise Reduction from the Audio Effects menu. 4. Click the Capture noiseprint check box, click Audition, and then click Stop as soon as the audition starts to play. 5. Click the Cancel button to exit from the Noise Reduction dialog. 6.

Click the Capture noiseprint check box again to disable it. 9. Adjust settings as desired, and then press OK to process. Note: Some DirectX plug-ins, including Noise Reduction, are not supported as track effects in the multi-track window. Cakewalk Pro Audio requires that these effects be used in the Audio View to process the audio. This requirement is a Cakewalk Pro Audio issue and not a Noise Reduction issue.

The entire file will now play, allowing you to change parameters and simultaneously listen to the results. 4. Click the Apply button in the Master Section to process the entire file.
