CEDAR for AMS Neve is now available on the AMS AudioFile SC/X

AMS AudioFile SC/X

22 May 2008

CEDAR Audio is pleased to announce that its CEDAR for AudioFile processes are now available on the latest AudioFile SC/X.

Auto declick provides a fast, effective method of removing scratches and clicks from audio. It will process single events or, by tagging, whole tracks of sections of audio. By allowing the user to tag events, the AudioFile SC/X implementation of CEDAR's processes allows multiple events to be restored in a single operation.

CEDAR's unique 'Split & Recombine' process lies at the core of Decrackle. This performs transparent restoration of even the most severely damaged material and, in addition to removing crackle, eliminates buzzes such as those caused by faulty wiring and electrical interference. It will also reduce the unpleasant effects of many types of distortion.

Dehiss is a sophisticated process that uses an enhanced version of spectral subtraction to identify and remove broadband noise from recordings. Users can manipulate the noise reduction parameters whilst auditioning, making Dehiss particularly versatile and suitable for cleaning up noisy location recordings or removing unwanted tape noise.

The AudioFile FX key is used to gain access and to launch the processes. By allowing the user to tag events, the AudioFile implementation of CEDAR's processes allows multiple events to be restored in a single operation. The original unprocessed events are retained in the events list as muted events, ensuring that the original unprocessed sound is available at any time later in the workflow chain. Due to their extremely fast and simple implementation, both processes work very well with the SC/X. Once the user locates the cue or event that needs to be processed, the whole operation is performed with just a single key press. The CEDAR processes will identify and remove the unwanted sounds automatically, and processing takes place quicker than real time - so the user can get on with editing.

Upgrading existing systems

Existing owners of CEDAR processes on the AMS AudioFile SC may move up to the SC/X versions for a special upgrade price. To take advantage of this, users should contact Clive Osborn at CEDAR Audio.
