Improve audio quality.
And increase customer satisfaction.
Sometimes the most important thing isn't what you hear, but what you don't hear. Restore audio recordings with the built-in spectral cleaning feature in Sequoia, the new SpectraLayers Pro 5 and a whole range of high-end plug-ins for audio editing.
Spectral cleaning in Sequoia
Spectral Cleaning is especially useful for post-editing live recordings and interviews containing noises from moving chairs, cell phones and coughing. Using conventional filters and complicated crossfade editing usually takes a lot of time and often results in changes to the useful signal. Spectral cleaning lets you achieve perfect results for noise removal in the frequency spectrum, in the most effective and time-saving way possible.
The spectrograph display (time on the horizontal axis, frequency on the vertical axis and color-coded amplitude) as well as A/B testing options make it possible to accurately restore the desired signal. Audio disturbances can be easily selected for removal with the mouse. Elements that have gone missing from the original frequency spectrum are recalculated into the recording using interpolation or transitions from the surrounding usable signal.
Threshold range editing
With this setting, you can limit interpolation to certain amplitudes in the spectrum. This means certain notes can be removed from the spectrum without influencing background signals.
This range determines the volume window in which the set threshold can be interpolated. Quieter or louder signal components outside the area will not be affected.
This setting allows you to change the spectrum view from linear to logarithmic. It makes sense to switch to logarithmic display when working in low frequency ranges for improved display of the ranges and to enable precise changes in the material.
For one-of-a-kind sound design:
SpectraLayers Pro 5 full version
The external audio editor visualizes the frequency spectrum in layers and enables a whole new workflow for restoration, sound design and mixing. Intuitive operation, high performance audio engine and audio editing in 3D make SpectraLayers Pro one of the world’s most revolutionary spectral editing platforms.
The DeHisser is an additional noise removal tool which eliminates regular, low-level "white" noise, typically produced by recordings, microphone pre-amplifiers or transformers.
Unlike with the DeNoiser, a sample of the distortion is not required.
The De-clipper is a tool for removing clipping and distortions. Passages with clipping are recalculated, i.e. interpolated, based on the material immediately surrounding them.
The DeClipping algorithm is suitable for material with clearly audible clipping, e.g. distorted piano or vocals.
Using "noise prints", the DeNoiser contained in Sequoia can remove distracting elements with little to no effect on the audio signal itself.
For example, you can select the noise print of an air conditioning unit and calculate the noisy signal in your audio material in real time, allowing you to restore one-of-a-kind recordings in no time at all.
The DeClicker removes crackling and individual clicking noises, which are typical on scratched records. The DeCrackler has been specifically developed to remove crackling noises from old records.
The signal display shows you the edited material as a continuous waveform or a spectrogram. In the display, you can see at which position the DeClicker and the DeCrackler have intervened.
The Brilliance Enhancer can be used to compensate for sound leakage in the higher frequencies and restore brilliance to the audio material. In contrast to an equalizer, which only raises existing frequencies, the Brilliance Enhancer recalculates new overtones from the remaining signal and markedly refreshes the sound.
The Brilliance Enhancer is particularly effective when used as a mastering effect for pop and rock songs to increase transparency and brilliance.
Sequoia has been one of the leading software solutions for professional audio productions for decades. Sequoia 15 is specifically designed to meet the requirements of professional users and represents a further milestone in the area of audio production, broadcasting and mastering.
