    Before anything this guy needs to watch a tutorial on Noise Reduction.

    Yep. Audacity could have eliminated that background noise. It takes a sample of the noise and somehow eliminates it from the signal. Works quite well.

    In other words he's kind of a "...those who can't - TEACH!" guy.

    I'm wondering whether it's really from an "Official Audacity Support Site", as displayed on the banner at the beginning. It seems more like a millennial-style ironic, humorless joke.

    Reaper has a nice noise reduction plugin, basically it's just and EQ that learns the noise signature and zeros it but it does affect the recorded signal as well.

    Far better to remove the noise source if possible, in my case it was a new interface Behringer Xenyx replaced by a Focusrite Solo
