Audacity is a free and well-known open-source audio editor, which also can be used as a background noise removal software. It is available for both Windows and Mac. Unlike BeeCut has powerful tools for videos, Audacity focuses more on the audio files, for instance, cut, copy, paste, adjust audio effects, normalize, reduce and isolate audio, etc. If you want a totally free program to process the background noise, Audacity will be your first choice.

  • Open it, and import the audio file that you want to remove background noise from video by the drop-down “File” > “Import” > “Audio”. It may take a few minutes depending on the file size.
