SPONSORED BY: Acon Digital Studio Clean - 10% off!
Studio Clean is a DirectX and VST compatible plug-in suite for use in host applications such as audio editing or processing software. It consists of four plug-ins for noise reduction and quality enhancements:
* StudioDenoiser is a plug-in for broadband noise reduction. Because the algorithm takes the perceptual properties of the human hearing into account it achieves a high level of noise reduction with a minimum of artifacts.
* StudioDeclicker contains two different algorithms. The actual click filter eliminates larger clicks and pops in the recording, while the crackle filter eliminates very frequent, but short clicks.
* StudioDeclipper restores recordings that suffer from analog or digital clipping.
* StudioRebirth adds synthesized high frequency harmonics to give life to old and dull sounding recordings.
