DialogueEnhance
 

INTELLIGENT SPEECH PROCESSOR – Available as Standalone and Plugin

DialogueEnhance is an intelligent automatic speech processing tool. You can use it to easily enhance the quality of your speech recordings without having to adjust many parameters.

The signal is processed by four different modules: Noise Reduction, Auto-EQ, Dynamic Reduction, Loudness Boost. A useful tool for podcast and video editors!

MAIN FEATURES

  • NOISE REDUCTION – Intelligent Estimation.
    • The noise content in your recording is estimated in real-time. You can adjust the reduction amount while listening to the result. The algorithm is similar to the one used in VoiceGate.
  • EQUALIZER – Automatic Adaptation
    • The equalizer module will find resonance frequencies and overall spectral imbalances. You can choose how aggressively the signal should be equalized.
  • DYNAMIC REDUCTION – Parallel Compression
    • Using a parallel compression scheme the dynamic of your recording can be optimized. The further you turn up the amount the more the compressor will start to affect the signal.
  • LOUDNESS BOOST – Automatic Level Adjustment
    • The Loudness Boost module can automatically lift your signal to a desired output level. It will even balance out level changes over time. Choose between three different loudness standards.

SPECIFICATIONS

  • Supported samplerates: 44.1kHz,48kHz,96kHz,192kHz
  • Supported channel layout: Mono/Stereo.
  • Plugin formats: AAX, VST3, AU
  • Standalone Software.

2. Restoration Suite 2

 
Restoration Suite 2
 

Acon Digital Restoration Suite consists of four audio restoration and noise reduction plug-ins that are the result of several years of research within the field of noise reduction and audio restoration algorithms:

  • DeNoise is a plug-in designed to reduce stationary noise, such as broadband noise, hiss, wind noise, buzz and camera noise. Great efforts have been put into preserving as much of the original signal as possible during the noise reduction process. As a result, DeNoise can reduce or in many cases completely remove the noise in a very transparent manner without loss of transients, attacks or “air” in the recording.
  • DeHum targets hum and buzz typically introduced by poorly grounded electrical equipment, but also other tonal noise sources like electrical motor noise.
  • DeClick is designed to remove impulsive noise such as clicks, crackle, plosives and thumps. These distortions are frequently encountered on LP and 78 RPM records, but also occur in digital recordings when recording voice without pop shield or due to drop-outs or distorted data packets.
  • DeClip restores audio recordings distorted by analog or digital clipping.

3. Oxford DeNoiser

By: Sonnox
 
Oxford DeNoiser
 

The DeNoiser Plug-In with its integrated de-hisser delivers surgical broadband noise reduction in real-time.

The process is based on a continual analysis of the input signal in order to build a noise profile. Alternatively, use Freeze Mode to sample a section of audio containing just target noise.

Simply define the threshold below which noise is removed and use the Reduction slider to taste.

We understand the delicate balance between removing noise and retaining the character of your original recording, so have added a Warmth control to return some richness and added a DIFF function to audition only the removed noise.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Separate DeHiss, Detect & Remove Sections for intuitive use 
  • High-resolution display of input signal & its noise profile 
  • Frequency Bias Curve to fine-tune noise threshold & reduction 
  • Mid-Side mode to de-noise only side content 
  • Warmth control for sweetening after noise removal 
  • Make-up gain for true A/B comparisons 

4. Sybil

 
Sybil
 

SYBIL – Variable Frequency De-Esser. Tame vocal sibilance quickly and easily.

Sybil is designed to tame excessive vocal sibilance (ess, tsss, ch, and sh sounds), with a flexible compressor and a variable-frequency high pass filter to ensure optimum de-essing for any vocal performance.

The compressor section includes threshold, ratio, attack and release controls, and the high-pass frequency control lets you adjust which high frequency content will get compressed, to ensure that the sibilance is reduced while the rest of the voice remains pristine.

With Sybil, everything you need to get control of vocal sibilance is right at your fingertips.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Tames sibilance precisely and effectively
  • Threshold, attack, decay, and ratio controls
  • Variable sidechain highpass frequency
  • AAX Native, RTAS, VST, and Audio Units
  • Mac/PC

5. VoiceGate

7. Type A

 
Type A
 

Type A is a plugin inspired by a famous vintage tape encoder. The original unit was designed to be a noise reduction system for tape recording (encode stage) and playback (decode stage).

Type A emulates the encode stage, which was often misused as an enhancer, dynamically increasing the top end of a signal without introducing artefacts or altering the harmonic content. The results are similar to a dynamic EQ which adds presence and air to any track in a natural way.

FEATURES:

  • Vintage Enhancer
  • Multi-band Compressor with 4 Bands
  • Adjustable Unit Noise
  • Oversample up to 16x
  • Resizable Window
  • Preset system with randomizer

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

You can show/hide the drop-down panel by clicking on the arrow icon in the bottom left corner of the interface.

You’ll get access to:

  • Volume for each band
  • Compressor Attack and Release
  • Noise volume
  • VU-Meter source selector

HOW DOES IT WORK?

To limit the amount of noise generated by tape recording, early noise reduction systems used what’s called a multi-band compander (compressor/expander). The unit dynamically emphasizes the high frequencies during the encoding stage (recording to tape), so that during the decoding stage (playback from tape) the signal is attenuated, along with the typical tape noise. Type A emulates the encoding stage only.

The input signal is split into 4 bands (with the highest bands overlapping), dynamically compressed and then summed back with the dry signal. The amount of compression on each band is inversely proportional to the volume of the band. Quieter sounds get brighter while louder sounds remain almost unchanged.

This adds brightness and air without generating any new harmonic content or distortion, resulting in a more pleasant and natural enhancer compared to a typical exciter.

NOISE REDUCTION OR ENHANCER?

Introduced in 1966 with the Dolby A301 first, and then in 1970 with the Dolby 361 (with the CAT 22 card, in photos), the A-Type noise reduction was quickly misused and modded by engineers to enhance their recordings by using the encoding stage only.

The most common mod consists in disabling the two lower bands so that only the high-frequency portion of the signal is compressed, giving even more air to vocals.

This technique was labeled with many names like the Vocal Trick, Stretch Mod, Vocal Stressor, and even the “John Lennon mod”.


8. Extract:Dialogue

 
Extract:Dialogue
 

Dialogue Noise Reduction

Extract:Dialogue is a plug-in that separates dialogue from common types of background noise such as wind, rustle, traffic, hum, clicks and pops. The algorithm works in real-time and is based on deep learning.

It has been trained on thousands of high-quality voice recordings and an equally extensive set of common noise sources.

The extensive training enables the artificial intelligence to automatically distinguish dialogue from noise without user interaction. This makes Extract:Dialogue extremely easy to use – just add it to your dialogue bus and let it do its magic.

Even though the noise reduction is fully automatic, the plug-in interface does offer simple controls to adjust the sensitivity of the noise detection and the maximum noise attenuation. The sensitivity can even be adjusted independently in up to three frequency bands. The maximum attenuation control is very handy when you only want to reduce the noise without removing it completely. All the parameters are fully automatable as you would expect.

MAIN FEATURES

  • Fully automatic noise reduction based on deep learning.
  • Global sensitivity control.
  • Frequency-dependent sensitivity control in up to three bands: Low shelf, peak and high shelf.
  • Adjustable maximum attenuation.
  • Solo noise mode.
  • Spectrum analyzer for input audio and removed noise.
  • Preset manager and a large number of factory presets.
  • Save, load and categorize user presets.
  • Resizable graphical user interface.

9. DeVerberate 2

 
DeVerberate 2
 

The balance between direct sound and reverberation is essential for the acoustic quality of audio recordings. DeVerberate is a reverb reduction plug-in that can attenuate or boost the reverberation that is already present in recorded material. The novel real-time algorithm works equally well with mono as with stereo recordings and splits the incoming audio into an estimation of the direct sound and the reverberated sound which can then be recombined freely. The improvement process can be monitored visually using the spectral representations of the input and output signal as well as of the estimated reverberation. Use Cases

  • Attenuate reverberation in existing recordings
  • Change the perceived distance in a mix by changing the balance between the direct sound and the reverberation
  • Improve dialog and location sound
  • Forensic specialists can improve speech intelligibility
  • Boost the natural reverberation in existing recordings
