SoniqWare releases SG-1
SoniqWare has released SG-1, a stereo spectral noise gate with parametric control over noise profile, spectral resolution control and graphical editor for Windows PC.
Parametric Control over Noise Profile: Capture the noise profile from your material and adjust it using the three bands parametric equalizer. Alternatively, create a noise profile from scratch using the bias, slope and eq controls.
Spectral Noise Gate Control: Tune the noise gate parameters, including the knee, the reduction amount, as well as the attack and release times. The spectral resolution can be adjusted in a continuous fashion, ranging from single band processing to very high spectral resolution.
Interactive Graphical Display: Visualize the stereo input and output signals spectral content, as well as the shape of the stereo noise profile. Besides, the noise profile parametric eq is controled using the display handles, and the corrected profile instantly appears on the display.
