Since I use a Blackberry, this software really piqued my interest. It is possible to move media around, but it’s a pain, because you need to manually resize your movies and photos and then drag them onto the phone’s flash card. doubleTwist makes all of this very easy.

One of SoundSoap’s powerful feature is the “learn noise” function which automatically determines the noise contained in a file. Suprisingly enough it only needs 2 seconds of the background noise to sample to set the Noise Tuner, and Noise Reduction knob automatically. The Noise Tuner is the threshold, and the Noise Reduction is the amount of reduction applied to the frequencies filtered by the Noise Tuner. Once noise has been filtered you have an option to listen to the filtered noise only, and adjust the Noise tuner and Reduction. There are two sliders, one to eliminate clicks and crackles, and another slider labeled “enhance” which can be used to boost frequencies and tone to any degraded media files.
