Arboretum Ships Ionizer 1.3
By Guest |
Arboretum Systems has released new audio technology which allows one to literally steal the equalization curves from any recording. Forget about sampling...Welcome to the age of Frequency Morphing.
Imagine taking the spectral characteristics - the "sound" - of any piece of audio, and mapping that frequency curve to another sound. Readjusting the various frequency levels along the spectrum of the second sound to match those of the first. And imagine doing this almost instantaneously.
Analyze the mix of your favorite record with the touch of a button, then use the new Ionizer Frequency Morph function to create filter curves that will give other recordings those same overall EQ characteristics. Or apply the sonic fingerprints of instrumental samples, ambiences, sound effects or voices to any other audio source.
Yes, its completely legal and it works much better than other attempts at this type of process. Ionizer Frequency Morphing is far different from conventional filter, morph or convolution effects; its a way of emulating the sonic characteristics of a recording, rather than merging the actual content. Ionizer's Morph feature has profound implications for key audio production processes including sound design, mixing, mastering, Foley and ADR.
A Power Mac-native application, Ionizer is a multi-band dynamic processor that offers fast spectral analysis and 512 bands of gated EQ per channel. It can be utilized for dynamic noise reduction, equalization, limiting, compression and expansion, all at 32-bit floating-point internal precision. Ionizer's noise reduction out-performs all comparable products in terms of the sheer sound quality. Ionizer includes special controls that eliminate the chirps, flanging and ringing artifacts associated with other NR products.
Unlike other analog and digital EQs, Ionizer's linear phase filters offer equalization that is entirely free of phase distortion. And Ionizer is completely user-configurable, allowing applications such as limiting the low end, expanding the midrange and compressing the high end all in a single pass.
Ionizer operates as a plug-in effect within any MacOS Premiere-compatible audio application, including Adobe Premiere, Macromedia DECK II, Opcode Vision/StudioVision/Studio Vision Pro, MOTU Digital Performer, Bias Peak, Emagic Logic Audio, Cakewalk Metro 4 and Gallery TurboMorph. Ionizer also is a plug-in for the Digidesign AudioSuite format. Upon installation in the DAE Plug-ins folder it may be used in Digidesign Pro Tools and Emagic Logic Audio, as well as the Avid Media Composer 7.0 and Avid Xpress 2.0 non-linear video editing systems.
Ionizer will additionally run in a stand-alone mode on any Power Macintosh through Arboretum's HyperEngine shell. Ionizer works with the Mac built-in audio hardware, includes special direct support for Audiomedia II and III and the 1212I/O and also will run on other Mac sound cards with appropriate Sound Manager drivers.
Ionizer is manufactured and distributed by Arboretum Systems, Inc., a privately-held California firm. Ionizer version 1.3 is now shipping at a suggested U.S. retail price of $499.00, international pricing may vary.
