Here is my attempt. Disclaimer of not knowing exactly what the process is
and/or the context applies. Therefore, I will not attempt to rewrite the
entire sentence, just remove the passive.
----------
>"For data reduction, the desired quantity is the response of the band
>after the out-of-band has been removed."
______

"For data reduction, the desired quantity equals the response of the band
after removing the out-of band."

or

"For data reduction, the desired quantity equals the response of the band
after the process removes the out-of band."

BTW: are we talking about band widths and data transfers? Just the
curiousity of a tech writer!
