Separate dialogue from common types of background noise such as wind, rustle, traffic, hum, clicks and pops.
The new Extract:Dialogue 1.5 — now with Phase Correction
Extract:Dialogue is a plug-in that separates dialogue from common types of background noise such as wind, rustle, traffic, hum, clicks and pops. The algorithm works in real time and is based on deep learning. It has been trained on thousands of high-quality voice recordings and an equally extensive set of common noise sources. The extensive training enables the artificial intelligence to automatically distinguish dialogue from noise without user interaction. This makes Extract:Dialogue extremely easy to use – just add it to your dialogue bus and let it do its magic.
Version 1.5 requires less CPU and introduces a novel artificial intelligence model that can correct phase distortions and destructive interference between the dialogue and the noise signal. This improves the naturalness of the voice, especially when dealing with noise that overlaps with the dialogue in the frequency spectrum.
Even though the noise reduction is fully automatic, the plug-in interface does offer simple controls to adjust the sensitivity of the noise detection and the maximum noise attenuation. The sensitivity can even be adjusted independently in up to three frequency bands. The maximum attenuation control is very handy when you only want to reduce the noise without removing it completely. All the parameters are fully automatable as you would expect.
Acon Digital Extract:Dialogue is available as VST, VST3 or AAX for both Windows and Mac or as AU plug-ins for Mac. There are 32 and 64 bit versions for Windows. The Mac version is 64 bit and runs natively on both ARM (such as Apple M1) and Intel processors.
Extract:Dialogue [1.5] is the first noise reduction tool that meets my standards.Gisle Tveito, Sound Designer
In two out of four cases in this particular test, Acon Digital Extract:Dialogue came out top. It was voted best for broadband noise reduction and best for reducing crackle.Production Expert, Noise Reduction Blind Test
Extremely useful for extreme situations. This de-noise plugin has been able to remove noise I haven’t been able to tackle with other de-noise applications. It has really shown its magic and given me great results with clothing rustle on lavalier mics, overcoming one of the biggest challenges we sound editors face.Hans Ekevi, Sound Editor
