Project Description

Ever wanted to cut out background noise when talking with others on Skype? Now it's possible!

NoiseGator is a light-weight noise gate application that routes audio through an audio input to an audio output. In real-time the audio level is analysed and if the average level is higher than the threshold the audio bypasses as normal. However, if the average level goes below the threshold, the gate closes and the audio is cut.

When used with a virtual audio cable it can act as a noise gate for a either a sound input(microphone) or sound output(speakers).

Can also be used to gate noise from your own mic or play your microphone through your speakers.

- Java 6 or higher is required to run this. Java 7 recommended.
- A virtual audio cable is required for use with VOIPs:

For Windows users I recommend the VB-Cable driver (
Mac users can use SoundFlower.

Works as intended. No bugs so far, but i didnt quite understand how to noisegate the incoming audio from e.g. skype calls.
Its straight forward and works like a charm with VB-Audio Cable. Skype calls are a lot better for the listening side, because my mic is highly sensitive.
Didnt let me filter incoming audio from e.g. skype calls (or i didnt understand how to). The threshold could have smaller steps between the levels.
