I believe such a tool would first have to know how to determine what the un-noisy signal sounded like. I don't know of a tool that will do all of this together, but you might be able to cobble together a rudimentary version of such a tool from existing tools. I don't know how well it would work... For example, Reaper (and probably most DAWs) has a ...
