  • Description: NoiseTorch is an easy to use open source application for Linux with PulseAudio. It creates a virtual microphone that suppresses noise, in any application. Use whichever conferencing or VOIP application you like and simply select the NoiseTorch Virtual Microphone as input to torch the sound of your mechanical keyboard, computer fans, trains and the likes.

We might not want to include this in the repos, as the maintainer is against distributions patching this software, and in their words:

As a heads up. With the next release of NoiseTorch, you will have to either stop applying patches, or rename, as will other distributions.

So we can either distribute it completely unpatched, distribute it under a different name, or just not distribute it at all.

@serebit Nice catch. Thanks!

Ah, too bad. I had this actually compiled for myself a while back, and was thinking about including it, if it improved. I'll still check it out from time to time.

It's sad how you can see them slowly losing patience with the AUR packagers as the thread goes on, even though they were open to the idea of packaging it in the beginning and providing solutions to make it easier.
