Check the "processing" checkbox in Wavosaur next to the Rack button, check the "automatically build noise profile" on the ReaFIR VST plugin : play the noise to get the noise profile. The noise profile is now displayed (in red).

You can hold CTRL and click+drag the noise profile (in red) to raise or lower it, so you can adjust the level of the substraction : lower the noise profile to have less artefacts (but noise won't be completely removed, you have to find the just balance).
You can also hold SHIFT and click drag to change/edit to noise profile.
