Zynaptiq has announced that it will introduce the UNCHIRP lossy codec artifact removal and UNFILTER adaptive tonal contour linearization plug-ins at the Frankfurt Musikmesse, Hall 5.1 Booth A91 (April 10-13, 2013).
UNCHIRP is a real-time plug-in that removes the most objectionable artifacts associated with low bit-rate lossy audio encoding, de-noising, and other processes that operate in the frequency domain, commonly referred to as Chirping, Warbling, The Tweeties or Underwater-Sound. This type of artifact has so far been virtually impossible to remove due to its narrow-band and short-time nature. UNCHIRP salvages poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a poor GSM/satellite uplink, footage recorded with consumer mobile devices, and material that has been de-noised too aggressively.
UNFILTER is a real-time plug-in utilizing a blind de-convolution process to remove filtering effects, such as comb filtering, resonance, or excessive equalization – effectively linearizing the frequency response of a signal virtually automatically. UNFILTER also removes slow moving flanger/chorus effects, and can apply a detected filter response to another signal, or store it for later use. Applications include repairing poorly mic’d production sound or musical recordings, adapting multiple sounds to be in the same acoustic “world”, removing “boominess” or resonance, generally re-balancing the spectral
contour of a signal or creatively designing new sounds.
“Weʼre excited to introduce UNCHIRP and UNFILTER.” Zynaptiq CEO Denis H. Goekdag said. “Re-recording mixers, music producers, dialog editors and sound designers will be thrilled to have these unique solutions in their audio toolkit.”
Zynaptiq will show UNCHIRP and UNFILTER as prototypes at the Frankfurt Musikmesse, Hall 5.1 Booth A91, April 10-13, 2013.
UNCHIRP will be available May 6th, 2013, and UNFILTER May 20th, 2013, from the Zynaptiq website as well as through select international resellers. Free trial versions will also be available.
Both plug-ins will come as AudioUnits, RTAS, AAX Native and VST for both Mac and Windows operating systems. Pricing is TBA.

DNR Collaborative has unveiled DesignDesk, a unique system which allows users to build workspaces out of a variety of design, document and development tools, as well as collect, edit and package all of your required files all in one place.
DesignDesk is a complete project repository, design toolkit and collaborative platform for just about anyone. The concept is simple – choose your tools, gather your files, edit and package your project into a neatly organized file system or database.
DesignDesk would be particularly useful to just about any type of multimedia designer who commonly creates and releases commercial products such as icon library designers or soundware developers. Even students and teachers could use it to research and gather information for projects or exams. With the ability for 3rd-party developers to create their own tools, DesignDesk becomes an extendable, flexible design platform and project creation system.
DNR have also launched a new crowdfunding campaign to raise the rest of the funds to get DesignDesk to market, and have decided to run the campaign independently instead of through a crowdfunding website such as Kickstarter, relying solely on the audio and media communities alone. A lot of effort went into preparing the documentation, graphics and other media that you can see on the DNR website, which will present a clear and concise explaination of what DesignDesk is, what is would be good for, and who it would be useful to.
Please share DesignDesk – we’re relying on our customers, friends and allies to spread the word!
DNR Collaborative is targeting a $5,000 USD pledge goal for DesignDesk, to be funded before May 15th, 2013.

SKYLIFE has announced the release of SampleRobot Single-X for Mac OS X.
With SampleRobot Single-X musicians and sound designers can create professional sample sets and transfer their instruments easily to the digital domain. One can also turn virtual instruments into multi-samples for hardware sample players and workstations.
SampleRobot Single-X offers a lot of sophisticated sampling and auto-loop features from his award-winning brother SampleRobot Pro. Single-X stands for „Single Export Format“ and is appropriate if using mostly one sampler type and therefore only one export format is needed.
These different export format options are available: Wave, Kontakt and Reason, Alchemy, Soundfont 2, Blofeld, HALion, WusikStation, SFZ / Dimension
For precise audio loop editing and advanced auto processing SampleRobot Single-X can be combined with SKYLIFE WaveRobot as an upgrade.

Changes in SampleRobot 4.51
- New SKYLIFE server connection for registration and online content.
- Mac: New installers for OS X fully compatible with OS 10.8, including a new framework with many optimizations and speed advantages, streamlined recording processes and path architecture, combined with enhanced support for various audio interfaces.
- PC: Enhanced support for Windows 8 including a new virtual interface. SampleRobot can be connected to the SKYLIFE SampleRobot Instrument Host which will be released shortly. In conjunction with the SKYLIFE SampleRobot Virtual Cable this virtual interface has the ability to sample virtual instruments and all audio streams that play on the same computer like web radio, music streams and other media data (abiding by relevant copyright laws and license agreements).
SKYLIFE SampleRobot Virtual Cable + Instrument Host is a discrete product that can be used in conjunction with SampleRobot as well as independently with other applications. The download will be available soon on the SKYLIFE STORE.
