Restoration Suite 1.7 with Surround Support and Quality Improvements

We have updated our Restoration Suite for audio restoration work to version 1.7. Restoration Suite consists of four powerful tools for audio restoration work – DeNoise, DeHum, DeClick and DeClip. The latest version adds support for multi-channel formats such as 5.1 and 7.1 channel surround. Also new is the support for the VST3 plug-in standard. The de-clicker algorithm has been rewritten and improves both detection and reduction of clicks. There are individual controls for the reduction of crackle and clicks as well as for a new module that targets low frequency clicks. The latter effectively reduces thumps and plosives that are frequently encountered in vocal recordings made without an effective pop shield or severely scratched records.

DeNoise has received several refinements as well – both in terms of audio quality and user interface. The attack and release time controls are now more effective when it comes to minimizing musical noise artifacts. Also new is the ability to store captured noise profiles in user presets. The spectrum analyzers in both DeNoise and DeHum are now interpolated and appear less jagged. All the plug-ins in the suite have received a visual facelift giving them a more polished look.
