The DirectX(TM) based Declicker Plug-In removes clicks and crackles from old vinyl or shellac records, and impulse-like disturbances from audio files contaminated during recording due to switching, digital cross-talk, or thyristor buzz.
The Declicker consists of two main parts: the declicking filter and the decrackling filter. While the declicking filter is normally used to remove heavy clicks from old vinyl records or switching noise arising from analogue or digital audio equipment, the decrackling filter removes any remaining, mostly small but dense clicks called crackles.
To facilitate ease of use, comprehensive control is accomplished by two fader controllers. One for declicking and one for decrackling. The higher the declick parameter is set, the more clicks are removed. The higher the decrackle parameter is set, the more crackles are removed from the original signal. Providing the correct setting for all parameters, the Declicker works virtually without artifacts.
By using a bypass-function, you can do a before/after-comparison. With a In/Out function, (the user can monitor either the Declicked signal or the actual removed noise. Because of the real time functionality of the Plug-In, all settings adjustments can be made during play back and the user has the ability to adjust the parameters to the best settings.
The Declicker Plug-In will be available by the end of August, 1999.
Suggested Retail for the Plug-In CD will be $199.00 US.
