Acon Digital Restoration Suite 33% off at Plugin Boutique

Plugin Boutique has announced a limited time sale on the Acon Digital Restoration Suite, offering a 33% discount on the plug-ins bundle for Windows and Mac.

Acon Digital Restoration Suite

Acon Digital Restoration Suite consists of four audio restoration and noise reduction plug-ins that are the result of several years of research within the field of noise reduction and audio restoration algorithms.

Restoration Suite features

  • DeNoise is a plug-in designed to reduce stationary noise, such as broadband noise, hiss, wind noise, buzz and camera noise. Great efforts have been put into preserving as much of the original signal as possible during the noise reduction process. As a result, DeNoise can reduce or in many cases completely remove the noise in a very transparent manner without loss of transients, attacks or “air” in the recording.
  • DeHum targets hum and buzz typically introduced by poorly grounded electrical equipment, but also other tonal noise sources like electrical motor noise.
  • DeClick is designed to remove impulsive noise such as clicks and crackle. These distortions are frequently encountered on LP and 78 RPM records, but also occur in digital recordings due to drop-outs or distorted data packets.
  • DeClip restores audio recordings distorted by analog or digital clipping.

The Restoration Suite for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available for purchase at a 33% discount until September 30th, 2014.

Acon Digital updates Restoration Suite to v1.5

Acon Digital has released version 1.5 of the Restoration Suite, a plug-in bundle designed for audio restoration tasks.

Acon Digital DeNoise
The Restoration Suite includes DeNoise (picture above), DeHum, DeClip & DeClick.

The visual appearance has received a facelift and the workflow has been improved with undo and redo support, A/B comparisons and a new preset manager that allows presets to be exported and imported from XML files.

The adaptive mode in DeNoise can now be set to target either broadband noise only or a combination of broadband and tonal noise. The combined mode allows adaptive de-noising of stationary noise with tonal components such as engine noise, AC noise and similar. The Pro Tools integration has been improved with support for highlighted controls when using automation and automation menu keyboard shortcuts that simplifies the workflow.

Changes in Restoration Suite v1.5

  • New visual appearance.
  • Support for visual themes.
  • Additional ‘combined’ mode in the adaptive denoiser that targets tonal components as well as broadband noise.
  • New preset manager with XML export and import.
  • Unlimited undo and redo history.
  • A and B settings for quick comparisons.
  • Control highlighting in Pro Tools.
  • Keyboard short-cut for the automation menu in Pro Tools.
  • Further bug fixes and minor improvements.

The Restoration Suite for Windows and Mac is available for purchase for $99.90 USD. The update is free for all previous Restoration Suite customers.
