CEDAR Cambridge version 2: A significant leap forward for audio restoration
5th October 2004
Available immediately, CEDAR Cambridge V2 extends the system's capabilities in many important ways. Most significantly, it adds a file processor to CEDAR Cambridge that provides disk-to-disk processing. This allows users to analyse and process selected parts of, or whole WAV and AIFF files, rendering the results back to hard disk in a fraction of the time needed to process audio in real-time. Furthermore, you can use the File Processor as a disk-to-world system, passing WAV and AIFF files through the processing chain and outputting the results so that you can monitor them in real-time. Accessed via the Process Manager, file processing also responds to automation, allowing users to create complex event- and scene-based processing, with morphing if required.
In addition to file processing, V2's new 64-bit Dynamics Processor contains three new modules: a compressor, an upward expander and a downward expander. Each of these offers eight audio channels, and you can use any combination of the processes simultaneously. Designed to the very highest audio standards, all three processes offer precise envelopes, side-chain processing and linking, which facilitate powerful effects such as ducking and 'parallel dynamics processing'. Furthermore, all of the side-chains include CEDAR's powerful IIR Precision EQ so that you can make all of the processes frequency-dependent for even greater flexibility.
Alongside these, the CEDAR Cambridge Limiter is designed and coded to the highest 64-bit standards and is suitable for the most exacting requirements. Like all CEDAR Cambridge V2 modules, it offers up to eight channels of processing, making it ideal for multi-channel and surround requirements as well as for traditional stereo mastering.
The File Processor is a free addition to the system core, and a free upgrade for all existing users. Prices for the Dynamics Processor and Limiter are available from your local CEDAR dealer.
