Improving Noise reduction UI

Post by Daabomb114 » Mon Jan 23, 2023 5:46 pm

Hello, I am finding it very annoying that audacity doesn't have a good UI for noise reduction. I feel it's very cumbersome to keep opening the UI dialog. Personally, that Box should stay open for steps 1 and 2. Please keep the UI open for both steps. When will this change?

If you make all of the settings that you want when you open Noise Reduction to grab the noise sample, then you don't need to open it again. Just press "Ctrl + R" (repeat last effect) and it will apply the noise reduction.
