Is there any software/product on the market that allow you to record "steady, ambient noise" from your studio (such as whirring computer fans/rack powersupply fans/air-con etc...) and remove this EXACT noise from any mic'd recordings you make in the same environment ???

Think the same sort of technology as noise cancellation headphones ?

I'd assume as long as this noise is consistent in pitch, timbre and SPL, then the technology already exists to implement this idea.

Or am i searching for the unattainable Holy Grail of the home studio engineer ??

Opinions or thoughts ?

I know that the old Cool Edit Pro had this feature. I'm not sure if it was carried forward into Adobe Audition, or if there were stand-alone versions released.

Sound Soap has a feature that will let you sample a noise to remove from the track.

I have long used the Sound Foundry NR plugs, they do that same thing, they rock.

otherwse you can record from the same position without the instrument and flip the phase, that'll remove the noise.
