Waves To Release Audio Restoration ToolsPlugins remove background noise and signal transients
The Restoration bundle includes four new plugins: X-Noise, X-Click, X-Crackle and X-Hum, all based on technology licensed from Algorithmix GmbH. We haven't seen the product yet, but, according to the company, here's what each of the plugins does:
- X-Noise learns from a section of noise and then applies a broadband noise reduction to eliminate background noise.
- X-Click removes clicks from 78s or vinyl records, as well as spikes arising from digital switching or crosstalk.
- X-Crackle eliminates crackles and surface noise left after the X-Click process.
- X-Hum attenuates steady pitched low frequency disturbances, such as ground loop hum and its harmonics. It is also intended to reduce the rumbles, microphone pops and DC-offset.
The Restoration tools will be available in October for $1,200. For more information, visit http://www.waves.com.
