If, like hundreds of people who complained to the BBC, you’re finding the constant drone of the Vuvuzela to be a bit of a distraction during the World Cup coverage, then some bright spark in Germany has the answer. By simply running the audio through some bog-standard software, you can make the games no longer sound like they’re being invaded by a swarm of hornets.
According to the chaps at Gizmodo, the German boffin behind it “runs the audio from his TV through a Mac Mini running Logic Express. A series of bandpass EQ filters in the software neatly excise the offensive frequencies, leaving the game blissfully vuvuzela-free.”
So there you have it! Don’t say we never give you anything. Maybe Rob Green could do with the silence in the next game so he doesn’t get put off (too soon?).
