The noise removal feature is unwanted, in my honest opinion. The “background noise” isn’t necessarily bad, I would say this is the case in a large margin of videos. I would highly recommend adding an option before uploading to toggle noise removal. From the bottom of my heart, I think it would be good for the success of this app for it to be off by default- at least the current algorithm at its current intensity- there are artifacts from the process that make a lot of videos sound weird and liquid-y.
I am not a power user of Byte, so I can’t speak for everyone, but I do have a couple of years of experience in the audio industry and I’m very attentive to detail- especially in regards to sound.
Not only does the “background noise” serve as an essential part to many videos on Byte, but the current algorithm produces clearly audible artifacts from the noise removal process.
