accusonus has released ERA-D which they describe as "The new standard in Noise removal." They say that the plug-in features:
Fast, easy workflow to reduce unwanted noise and reverb more quickly and effectively than any current method/toolset.
Advanced mode for detailed processing: controls for de-noise and de-reverberation, estimation time constants, choice between three de-noise algorithms, artifact control with separate algorithms for steady state or impulsive sounds, etc.
Control of processing range and intensity in four user-defined spectral bands.
ERA-D is perfect for broadcast audio (radio/TV/internet), dialog/ADR editing for film and television and sound design.
A spokesperson had this to say, "As a sound professional, you sometimes simply can't afford to throw away a recording contaminated by noise and/or reverberation. An actor's genius performance, a singer's perfect vocal take, a musician's moment of true inspiration: in all these cases you have to save the original sound. While there are a number of tools on the market that sound professionals use to deal with noise and reverberation, they require that you deal with noise and reverberation separately and their workflows can be complex and time consuming. ERA-D from accusonus changes all that by providing the first restoration plugin that simultaneously removes noise and reverberation. ERA-D is based on an advanced technology and a simple and straightforward user interface that manages noise and reverb problems faster and more effectively than any currently available workflow.
Noise and reverberation are around us all the time. But these normal sounds of every day life can be a complex sea of ever-changing distortion that an audio editor must wrestle with. Traditional tools cope with noise or reverberation separately and their simplistic algorithms fail to "understand" the complexity and interdependency of noise & reverberation. The brain trust at accusonus, recognized as academic experts in the field of audio analysis, exhaustively researched both the common and distinct sonic elements of noise and reverberation and set out to develop technology that could analyze and manage them either separately or together. The result is ERA-D.
ERA-D's patented technology (US 9,060,052) is also the first to analyze information from multiple microphones; when more than one microphone is available, the ERA-D explores the multichannel information to better suppress reverb and/or noise. The product offers unique solutions to problems that couldn't have previously been solved. ERA-D features a flexible signal-processing engine that allows for dramatic improvement of sound quality and saves recordings that would have otherwise been unsalvageable. And all of this comes with a slick, innovative interface that allows you to quickly achieve astonishing results.
After more than 10 man-years of R&D, more than 30 scientific papers and chapters in technology books, and a recently granted US patent, the game-changing accusonus ERA-D is ready to shake the audio post-production world!"
