The CEDAR DNS2000 is ideal for cleaning up Life On Mars


25 January 2006

CEDAR Audio Ltd is delighted to announce that Hackenbacker Audio Post Production has added a CEDAR DNS2000™ Dialogue Noise Suppressor to its post production studio.

Based in Central London, Hackenbacker - which also owns two CEDAR DNS1000 Dynamic Noise Suppressors - provides a first class audio post-production service for film and television. James Feltham at Hackenbacker was one of the mixers on the new BBC1 drama Life on Mars starring John Simms as a CID officer who, after an accident, finds himself transported back to 1973. Feltham comments: "We had to take great care with the location noise for Life On Mars; filmed in noisy central Manchester we had to remove unwanted jet noise and modern motorway sounds that would not have been commonplace back in 1973. The DNS2000 was an ideal tool for working quickly to remove this noise. As well as being quick and simple to use, it offers the flexibility to achieve instant results removing the unwanted noise without affecting the dialogue."

The DNS2000 is a fully automated implementation of CEDAR Audio's DNS technology designed specifically for Pro Tools users. Connected to Pro Tools using a USB cable, Pro Tools provides the control and automation for the process, while the DNS2000 rackmount processor provides the DSP power and the 24-bit I/O for the system. The DNS2000 is ideal for eliminating traffic noise, aircraft, air conditioning, wind, rain, tape hiss, and general background from recordings and live transmissions.
