Soundness releases SoundSoap 4 audio restoration software

Related: , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 06, 2014 - comment 0 comments

Soundness has released SoundSoap 4, the latest version of its audio cleaning software for Windows and Mac.

Soundness SoundSoap 4

SoundSoap 4 has some amazing new features and enhancements! A new Loudness Maximizer boosts the volume of your audio tracks without introducing distortion. SoundSoap 4’s new Declipping feature automatically fixes distortion on audio that was recorded too loud, using an advanced digital signal processing algorithm to restore clipped audio signals.

The new Track feature automatically reduces the amount of noise reduction during louder sections of the audio material, effectively increasing the amount of noise reduction you can apply. It is like having your own audio mastering engineer riding the noise reduction controls!

SoundSoap 4 now saves WAVE and AIFF files in 24-bit format for pristine audio quality (Mac). SoundSoap now includes a large parameter value display and a waveform display now shows the audio material when working with audio-only media sources.

SoundSoap 4 is available for purchase for $149 USD. BIAS SoundSoap and SoundSoap Pro user can upgrade for $49 USD. Registered owners of SoundSoap 3 who purchased after September 1 will receive a free upgrade.

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.

Acon Digital Restoration Suite

Acon Digital has released version 1.1.0 of its Restoration Suite, a collection of four plug-ins for audio restoration: DeNoise, DeHum, DeClick and DeClip.

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

  • DeHum can now process up to 96 harmonics and passes the Audio Unit validation on OS X Mavericks (v10.9).
  • DeClip contains audio quality improvements and is better at reconstructing high frequency content.
  • The plug-ins now show up as stereo plug-ins in Reaper when using Audio Units on OS X.
  • DeHum now resets its internal state properly so that previous audio data don’t affect the output when the same instance of the plug-in is used for other audio material.

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