DontCrac[k] Sonnox Group Buy

Sonnox and DontCrack.com have announced a Group Buy promotion.

DontCrack engaged quite ambitious negotiations as they’ll need over 300 subscribers that commit to buy any of the 9 hot Sonnox bundles (3 per format (Native, TDM or PowerCore) to reach the +50% discount. But looking at their previous promotions, we are very confident that this unique Sonnox Group Buy promotion will do more than well with the first bundle (Enhance Native Bundle) that should reach the attractive pricing of only $270 (MSRP $540). The Full Elite Native bundle that could be sold at round down price of only $599 (MSRP $1260) if the amount of subscribers is reached. That sure would be a once in a life time Sonnox promotion…

As we all know, Sonnox Oxford Plugins (formerly Sony Oxford Plugins) are considered to be among the highest quality audio plugins ever made for professional studios, producers, musicians, etc. Typically companies like Sonnox don’t like to see their products discounted but they followed-up with DontCrack that has committed to buy a quite huge quantity of plugins what ever happens says Peter Donovan, marketing Director at DontCrack.com.

This Group Buy promotion will run from December 1 to 13, 2009 and 5 days will be made available for subscribers to purchase the product they committed to buy (sales are from December 14 to 18, 2009).

Sonnox Restore

Sonnox has announced the release of Sonnox Restore, a suite of three plug-ins designed to accurately restore audio recordings that are impaired.

Restore represents a quantum leap beyond previous restoration plug-in technology with its advanced algorithms and novel features that allow fast and extremely effective removal of pops, clicks, crackles, scratches, hum, buzzes and extraneous background noise from virtually any recording.

Capable of exceptionally high quality audio repairs, the three plug-ins are intuitive and easy to use, with each interface providing detailed graphical feedback, benefiting the user by saving time which of course is critical in the post-production process.

Sonnox Restore features

  • Tracking mode can be set to Automatic or Fast to follow fundamentals that wander in frequency, or to Freeze for fundamentals that vary in amplitude
  • Choice of removal filters: Comb for general purpose narrow removal over many harmonics, or Parametric EQ for a more musical removal over a small set of harmonics
  • Two audition modes, including option to listen to the removed buzz

DeNoiser

  • High performance noise removal using advanced algorithms
  • Separate DeHisser, Detect and Remove Sections for intuitive workflow
  • High resolution FFT of input signal showing noise profile
  • Efficient DeHisser for preparation before wide-band noise reduction
  • Detector noise profile can be set to automatic, freeze or manual
  • Noise threshold and reduction are controllable in frequency bands using adjustable bias curve
