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
DeClicker

  • Three sections with individual thresholds and controls: DePop, DeClick and DeCrackle
  • Event display gives intuitive visual feedback of energy and duration of detected events
  • ‘Exclude Box’ to select events that should not be repaired
  • Dialogue Mode that allows two separate sets of control settings distinguished by input level

  • Very accurate setting of fundamental over 3 frequency ranges
  • Integrating frequency display shows strength of fundamental
  • 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
  • Two audition modes, including the option to listen to the removed noise
  • Warmth control for sweetening after noise removal
  • Make-up gain for true A/B comparisons

Sonnox Restore is available to purchase for Windows PC and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS), priced at £1,195 GBP. Sony Restoration Tools owners can exchange their licence for £895 GBP until February 28, 2010.

Sony Creative Software Sound Forge Pro 10

Sony Creative Software has announced the release of Sound Forge Pro 10, a professional digital audio production suite for Windows.

Sound Forge Pro 10 new features include event-based editing, disc-at-once CD burning, iZotope™ 64-bit SRC™ (sample rate conversion), MBIT+™ dither (bit-depth conversion), musical instrument file processing, and the élastique Pro timestretch/pitch shift plug-in. In addition, Sound Forge Pro 10 software provides exclusive new enhancements, including customizable window layouts, metadata editing, performance optimizations, and interactive tutorials. These new features create a powerful and flexible audio production environment, increasing workflow and efficiency while consistently delivering the pristine audio quality the recording industry has come to expect from Sound Forge software.

New in Sound Forge Pro 10

  • Event-based editing — Event-based editing is ideal for precise audio mastering, assembling project sketches, or laying out tracks for authoring disc-at-once CDs. In Sound Forge 10, users can quickly move, split, slip, and trim events, create fades, apply ASR envelopes and crossfades within in a single data window for more precise audio control.
  • Integrated Disc-at-Once (DAO) CD burning — Integrated disc-at-once CD burning results in time savings and provides a more efficient workflow when generating Red Book compliant disc-at-once premasters of music suitable for professional replication. Perform full PQ code editing, create live-style CDs, add CD text and metadata, and use high-resolution source audio with precise conversion to Red Book audio.
  • Zplane élastique Pro Timestretch DirectX® plug-in — The élastique time stretch and pitch shift plug-in provides better sounding audio when processing audio files. Users can also monitor and adjust settings while previewing in real-time, and select from various stretching methods that are tailored to their source audio including Pro, Soloist, and Efficient modes.
  • iZotope 64-bit SRC (sample rate conversion) and MBIT+ dither (bit-depth conversion) — The iZotope 64-bit SRC utilizes a hybrid low pass filter design, resulting in pristine audio with less aliasing converting material from one sampling rate to another. The iZotope MBIT+ dither employs psychoacoustic methods to distribute noise into less audible ranges, resulting in improved audio and smoother fades when converting the bit rates of audio files.
  • Musical instrument file processing (.DLS, .SF2, .GIG) — Sound Forge Pro 10 software opens, processes, and saves DLS, GigaStudio/GigaSampler, and SoundFont 2.0 musical instrument files. Users can view bank, instrument, note range, and sample information. Effects and processes can easily be added directly to samples.
  • Customizable window layouts — Customizable window layouts are designed to maximize productivity by allowing users to create and save multiple unique interface layout configurations for single and dual monitor systems, and recall a window layout for specific editing tasks such as audio editing, CD layout, and multichannel file editing.
  • Mastering Effects Bundle 2 powered by iZotope™ — The powerful bundle of audio mastering tools included with Sound Forge 10 is valued at over $200 and includes six professional plug-ins to expertly master and enhance audio production: Mastering EQ, Mastering Reverb, Multiband Compressor, Mastering Limiter, Stereo Imager, and Harmonic Exciter.
  • Interactive tutorials — Sony Creative Software’s unique interactive tutorials provide walkthrough demonstrations of common features and functionality, including DAO CD burning, vinyl recording and restoration in order to help users spend less time learning and more time editing and mastering audio projects.

Sound Forge Pro 10 is available for an MSRP of $499 USD.
