Retouch for SADiE

CEDAR Retouch for SADiE was a huge leap forward in sound processing technology - the first spectral editor. Unlike conventional restoration tools, Retouch allows you to define the temporal and spectral content of the sound you want to remove making it possible to identify noises as varied as coughs, creaking chairs, page turns, the squeak of a piano pedal and even car horns. Once identified, unwanted sounds can be replaced seamlessly with audio that matches the surrounding signal. All other audio remains untouched. When all else fails... Retouch gives you complete control.

Declick for SADiE

Declick performs at high speed and addresses the widest possible range of scratch and click removal problems. Auto declick allows the user to process part or all of a playlist as an off-line process. There is no need for user-controls and the automatic process will cope with even the most severely damaged audio. Manual declick incorporates an algorithm capable of restoring clicks and other problems - such as drop-outs and digital errors - of up to 4,000 samples duration. It uses SADiE's region editing feature to highlight the damaged audio and is particularly suitable for repairing optical soundtracks. It is also ideal for restoring audio that suffers from problems for which standard declick algorithms are not optimised.

Decrackle for SADiE

Decrackle doesn't only remove the tiny clicks and crackle from vintage discs and vinyl LPs, it removes many types of buzz and can be extremely effective at reducing amplitude distortions. With no parameters, CEDAR's adaptive algorithms will identify and remove all of these noises automatically, making it as applicable to film soundtrack restoration and broadcast as it is to traditional audio restoration jobs such as CD remastering.

Dethump for SADiE

Dethump can analyse and restore damaged signal of up to 100,000 samples duration. This makes it the best tool for removing many of the previously intractable problems associated with optical soundtracks, as well as for restoring damaged cylinders and discs. For modern material, dethump will cure microphone thumps and remove many other low-frequency disturbances within the signal.

Denoise for SADiE

DeNoise removes broadband noise from recordings. Users can manipulate the noise reduction curve, making DeNoise particularly versatile - suitable for restoring vintage soundtracks and 78rpm discs (which have highly coloured noise spectra) as well as modern recordings on good quality media. The SADiE-designed user interface allows you to manipulate parameters in real-time so you can audition the results while the audio is playing, making the process quick and simple, and helping to ensure that you achieve high quality results every time.
