It has some features that X-noise do not have. For instance, it can preserve the transients better. See the descriptions given by Waves for X-noise
Thank you very much, Didier. If I have understood correctly, the Z-noise has a 5-Band Noise Profile EQ
and an Enhanced low-frequency resolution and time sensitivity and you also can monitor the noise and not only the complete output like in X-noise, right? Is the price really 492 US-Dollars (see this link, please: http://register.waves.com/wavesstore/storemain.aspx#
) or have I overseen a decimal point?
I also have the "learning function" in X-noise. I still have tried that out, but I couldn´t hear any difference before the learning and after the learning process. Do you think, it´s an effective function? (Sorry, if my questions are boring for you, but I´m a true layman concerning these things.)
I have another question to you as an expert:
Monica has discovered two little "pop"-noises on my newest Bach-recording (P&F e-minor, WTCII). I can´t hear them in WaveLab, but with other players like VLC-player, Windows Media Player etc. I have recorded my performance with 192 Khz and 24 bit (I always save them on a DVD-Audio). Could the converting process to mp3 have caused these "pop"-noises? If that would be backround-noises in the room, I should hear them also in WaveLab, isn´t it?
