CEDAR Forensic Enhance

15 March 2024

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of CEDAR Forensic Enhance™, the latest in our line of AAX/VST/AU plug-ins for audio forensic professionals. This replaces our Trinity Enhance plug-in and has been renamed to reinforce the message that it's designed for audio forensics rather than conventional post production or other pro-audio uses. It retains the same, stunningly simple but effective voice enhancement, and the same GUI that makes it possible for novices to obtain excellent results as quickly and easily as experts.

Available as an AAX, AU, VST2 and VST3 plug-in that is compatible with all of the common audio and video playback and editing platforms, it's based upon the advanced filtering developed for our CEDAR Trinity surveillance system and comprises four related processes that suppress noise and enhance speech to increase listenability and intelligibility:

  • Motor removes steady noises such as engine rumble, mains hum, air conditioners and fans.
  • Noise reduces broadband noise.
  • Background makes background sounds appear louder relative to the foreground.
  • Speech enhances speech signals relative to other types of sound.


We live in a world where an increasing amount of evidential material is being recorded every day, much of it captured on smart phones, CCTV systems and similar devices. These recordings tend to have at least one thing in common: background and environmental noise reduces the audio quality, making the wanted speech hard to listen to or even unintelligible. To improve this, Forensic Enhance allows even novice users to clean difficult material to a standard that would have seemed impossible just a few years ago.

Upgrading from Trinity Enhance

Forensic Enhance is now authorised on both Mac and PC by an iLok dongle or using iLok Cloud, which makes it simpler and more convenient to install and use than before. Existing users are invited to upgrade but, since Forensic Enhance is a new product, they must contact for instructions to decommission the earlier product and install the new one. Users running Trinity Enhance on a PC will also have to remove it from their existing CEDAR HSP dongles before authorising Forensic Enhance on their iLoks.

CEDAR Forensic Enhance is immediately available. Please contact your local dealer for pricing.
