Acoustica Premium Edition 7.1 — now with Extensive Plug-in Collection

Acoustica 7 is the perfect software application for audio editing, mastering and restoration work on both Mac and PC. The application is available in a Premium Edition and a lower cost Standard Edition. The Premium Edition offers advanced features such as spectral editing with powerful retouch algorithms and multi-channel support up to 7.1 surround. Our award winning plug-ins such as Equalize 2, Verberate and Restoration Suite are included. The new Transfer plug-in makes audio transfers between Pro Tools and Acoustica a breeze, thus expanding Pro Tools with an extensive set of tools for audio restoration and processing.

Acoustica Premium Edition 7.1 also introduces brand new plug-ins based on the internal processing tools in version 7.0, but with significant improvements in audio quality, workflow and versatility. Dynamics is a combined compressor, expander and gate with flexible side chain filtering and Limit is a brick-wall limiter. Both tools have sophisticated algorithms with adjustable look-ahead for maximum transparency and up to four times oversampling. Multiband Dynamics is a multi-band version of Dynamics with separate processing in four bands and adjustable cross-over frequencies and filter slopes. The Dither plug-in offers dithering with novel and flexible noise shaping options.

The Standard Edition offers most of these tools as internal processors in Acoustica, but they cannot be used as plug-ins in other host applications. Both editions offer EBU R 128 and ITU-R BS.1770 compliant metering and normalization.

Included Plug-ins

Equalize 2

The new Equalize 2 — now with Tilt and Bandpass Filters

  • Eight different band filter types — low cut, low shelf, peak, tilt, bandpass, notch, high shelf and high cut
  • Up to twelve independent bands
  • Freely adjustable gain, frequency, bandwidth, resonance and filter slope
  • Three different phase modes, including the novel mixed phase mode with adjustable latency
  • Choose channel mode for each band independently (mid, side, left, right or full processing)

Verberate

Acon Digital Verberate is an algorithmic reverb plug-in that simulates real acoustical surroundings with a new degree of realism. Several conventional building blocks in traditional digital reverb design have been replaced by novel methods that allow Verberate to produce convincing early reflections and the dense reverberation tails that characterize impulse response measurements of real acoustical spaces. The result is a clean, unobtrusive sonic quality and a reverb that blends seamlessly into a mix. This is the reverb for those who like clean and realistic reverbs like convolution reverbs, but are in need of more flexibility and tweaking possibilities without sacrificing realism.

Highlights

  • Highly realistic simulation of real acoustical spaces
  • True stereo processing
  • Uncluttered user interface
  • Sensible set of parameters

Restoration Suite - DeNoise

DeNoise is a plug-in designed to reduce stationary noise, such as broadband noise, hiss, wind noise, buzz and camera noise. Great efforts have been put into preserving as much of the original signal as possible during the noise reduction process. As a result, DeNoise can reduce or in many cases completely remove the noise in a very transparent manner without loss of transients, attacks or “air” in the recording.

  • Advanced algorithms reduce stationary noise efficiently with minimal impact on the wanted material
  • Transient detection ensures that transients remain untouched throughout the noise reduction process
  • Effective temporal smoothing reduces “musical noise” artifacts
  • Adaptive estimation of noise profile or estimation based on noise only
  • Graphical representation of input frequency spectrum and the noise profile
  • Frequency emphasis filter
  • High and low shelving filters with variable slopes (-3 to -96 dB / octave)
  • High and low peak filters with adjustable bandwidth (0.1 to 3.0 octaves)
  • Graphical representation of frequency response
  • Editing of filter settings through handles in the frequency response curve
  • Residual signal mode allows you to listen to the removed signal

Learn more about DeNoise.

Restoration Suite - DeHum

DeHum targets hum and buzz typically introduced by poorly grounded electrical equipment, but also other tonal noise sources like electrical motor noise.

  • Remove hum and buzz with minimal loss of the wanted signal
  • Novel sinusoidal re-synthesis algorithm (preserves wanted signal to a much larger extent) or conventional notch filter mode
  • Adaptive mode allows removal of hum signals with a fluctuating fundamental frequency
  • Automatically removes up to 16 harmonics
  • Optionally to targets only odd harmonics
  • High resolution spectrum analysis of the input signal
  • Visual indication of the estimated fundamental frequency as well as the harmonics
  • Residual signal mode allows you to listen to the removed signal

Learn more about DeHum.

Restoration Suite - DeClick

DeClick is designed to remove impulsive noise such as clicks and crackle. These distortions are frequently encountered on LP and 78 RPM records, but also occur in digital recordings due to drop-outs or distorted data packets.

  • Seperate detection and restoration of clicks and crackle
  • Very accurate detection of click start time and duration ensures minimal impact on the wanted material
  • Digital drop-outs detection mode for detection of asymmetrical clicks (typical result of discontinuities after loss of short fragments of digital data)
  • 64 bit precision in the internal processing
  • Two-pass high resolution interpolation algorithm ensures very transparent estimation of the original signal during clicks
  • Visual curve meters show the clicks and crackle removal rates
  • Residual signal mode allows you to listen to the removed signal

Learn more about DeClick.

Restoration Suite - DeClip

DeClip restores audio recordings distorted by analog or digital clipping.

  • Reconstructs peaks distorted by analog or digital clipping
  • Separately adjustable upper and lower threshold values
  • Optional upper and lower threshold lock simplifies the workflow in the case of symmetrical clipping
  • Graphical representation of the input and output level histograms makes it easy to set the threshold values and monitor the restoration process visually
  • Threshold values can be adjusted directly from the level histograms by dragging upper and lower threshold handles

Ultimate Audio Quality

Acoustica offers support for state-of-the-art audio resolutions up to 32 bit and sampling rates up to 384 kHz, ensuring that all of your work comes across at the highest quality. Acoustica Premium Edition even supports multichannel audio recording and editing such as 5.1 and 7.1 surround sound.

Audio Restoration

Integrated audio restoration tools help you get the most out of recordings impaired by background noise, clicks, crackle, clipping or missing high frequency content. The Premium Edition contains the same set of professional tools as our Restoration Suite.

Spectral Editing

The new spectral editing mode in Acoustica Premium Edition 7 allows precise restoration work since processing can be limited to isolated regions in time and frequency. Selection tools such as brush, freehand or magic wand are available. The retouch tool removes noise based on a freely selectable reference from the surrounding audio.

Multitrack Editing

Mix audio from different tracks in real-time, insert audio effects or create cross-fades easily in multitrack sessions. You can loop or time stretch clips directly from the multitrack timeline and automate volume, pan and send levels.

Processing Tools, Chains and Plug-ins

High quality processing tools ranging from a new suite of dynamic processing tools to EQ and effects like reverb and chorus are integrated along with sample rate conversion, time stretching and pitch shifting. You can create chains of audio processors and apply or store them for later use. A powerful batch processor is included and VST, VST3 and AU (Mac only) plug-ins are supported.

Analysis Tools

Analysis tools such as spectrum, spectrogram and wavelet analysis are available. Real-time analyzers visualize your audio output (EBU R-128 loudness, level, spectral and phase correlation).
