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.

Changes in Restoration Suite v1.1.0

  • DeNoise now reduces broadband noise even more effectively. The center frequency, bandwidth and filter slope of the current band is displayed as cursor information when modifying filter band settings in the emphasis filter editor.
  • 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.

Acon Digital releases Restoration Suite

Acon Digital Restoration Suite

Acon Digital has launched the Restoration Suite, a bundle of 4 effect plugins for restoration of audio.

Acon Digital Restoration Suite consists of four audio restoration 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.

Acon Digital Restoration Suite for Windows and Mac (32/64-bit, VST/AU) is available to purchase for $99.90 USD. An upgrade is available to Studio Clean 1.x users for $39.90 USD.
