Celemony has released version 1.2 of Capstan, a software solution for the removal of wow and flutter, which now operates optionally in higher resolution.
With the free update to Version 1.2, Capstan offers an optional High-Resolution Mode that increases the resolution of the audio analysis by a factor of 4. This allows flutter frequencies up to 14 Hz to be eliminated, at the same time increasing still further the accuracy of the processing.
Capstan is based on Celemony’s patented DNA Direct Note Access technology. Since it is capable of detecting wow and flutter from the music itself – regardless of the medium (magnetic tape, vinyl, etc.) – Capstan is superior to other solutions that rely on reading the bias, because Capstan still functions even if the tape has been copied several times or digitized at low sampling rates. Capstan is used worldwide by classic labels as well as renowned mastering and restoration studios, broadcasters and archivists, having proved its worth on numerous occasions through the rescuing of valuable historical recordings.
Capstan for Windows and Mac is available for purchase at a 5-day rental price of 199 USD/EUR. A full time-unlimited license is $4,458 USD/3,790 EUR.
