Why don't the Camtasia 8 Noise Reduction Options Do Anything?

Camtasia 8: noise reduction tools do not seem to work ... I've attempted to apply the noise reduction, adjusting sensitivity and yet I don't hear any reduction of the noise level. In Camtasia 7, I hear the noise reduction very clearly.

... Is this a known bug?

I am using Win 7 home premium on a Samsung series 9 ultra book.

I've just downloaded the latest Camtasia 8, checked for updates - all OK.
And the noise removal seems almost non-existent. This makes Camtasia 8 unusable, after I've just paid £100 for the upgrade I am disappointed. Can I get a refund?

This problem is still there in Cam 8.4, and the previous messages 2 years ago were promising to fix the bug in Cam 8.1.xxx.
So where are we now with this noise reduction? I was very impressed of its effect in Cam 5-7, but now this bug is a big problem for our video production.

This response is another example of the reasons I stay with Camtasia. Sure, there are problems and bugs with things--there are problems and bugs with anything--but what is different about Camtasia is the willingness to acknowledge without excuse.  Once a problem is acknowledged this way, it's only a matter of time before the solution is found.  Thanks for the update about this problem. I'm looking forward to your creative solution.

I reverted back to Camtasia 8.0 to get noise reduction again.

Might i also suggest you consider higher quality sound output with the high resolution outputs? My card can capture 24bit sound and it is a shame that the sound quality is squashed in Camtasia. 

... 24bit/96kHz sound quality is becoming popular.
