Audionamix Introduce IDC: Instant Dialogue Cleaner

idc_box

Audionamix introduce their latest plug-in, IDC: Instant Dialogue Cleaner. The IDC plug-in is the first real-time, cloudless solution from Audionamix, and will offer unique and effective dialogue cleaning technology through an intuitive interface, compatible with many workflows.

The software will be available for pre-launch purchase starting on July 2, and will officially be released on July 17.

“IDC is unique because unlike traditional denoisers that learn and remove noise, it works by separating and preserving speech, regardless of the interference”, says Maciej Zielinski, CEO of Audionamix.

“This will be useful for post-production and broadcast, offering immediate dialogue clean up with the turn of a knob, and addressing common audio issues such as complex variable noise interference including weather, traffic noise, music and room ambience.”

The IDC plug-in is versatile and easy to use due to its unique integrated DNN artificial intelligence that automatically detects and separates speech, no matter the surrounding content. With the turn of a knob, users can clean up dialogue from interviews, dailies from movies and TV, during the post-dialogue editing process, re-recording mixing, news and sports recording, radio broadcast, and more.

IDC will be available in VST, AU, AAX Native and AudioSuite formats for both Mac and Windows systems and will feature fully automatable plug-in settings. During the pre-launch period, the perpetual license will be priced at $139, and will then increase to $199 after the pre-launch period ends on July 17.

The unique algorithm carves out important signal features – making sounds sound more like themselves – and is operated with essentially one control. Between the proprietary algorithm and an optional soft-knee saturating limiter in the plugin’s output stage, INTENSITY also excels at attaining maximum loudness and creating a beautifully aggressive tone.

ALK2 Solo from zenAud.io is now available at DontCrack

alk2 solo advert

zenAud.io have today released ALK2 Solo, the ‘lite’ version of ALK2. Aimed squarely at the gigging solo performer, ALK2 Solo provides the essential features of ALK2 at an affordable price point. It enables musicians to compose and mix with complete ease while performing live, and is available now for only $35 ($45 List) at the DontCrack Store.


ALK2 Solo, available now at the DontCrack Store


ALK2 Solo is a cross between a sequencer and a looper. Like a traditional looper, clips are performed live and subsequently looped to create layers of sound. In addition to this there is a complete sequencer, allowing you to manipulate the loops in real time. They can be drawn, moved, copied, cut and pasted in a musical arrangement, all while performing live.

When it’s time to perform the song, ALK2 Solo will follow your arrangement, pressing the necessary virtual pedals to arm channels, trigger effects, and record and play loops at the right time. ALK frees you to do what you do best; perform.

Here are some great quotes from magazines on review of ALK2…

Beat Magazine (print)

Website: beat.de
Rating: 5.5/6

“ALK2 presents itself as the ultimate looper workstation and should become the standard tool for beatboxers, scratch artists, vocalists and one-man bands.”

“ALK2 from zenAud.io is a complete looper package, combining typical overdub looping with a sequencer to plan and play songs. The idea is as simple as it is ingenious!”

“zenAud.io ALK2 is an outstandingly simple to use looper station, that does not share the typical shortcomings of similar products, complements their functionality with the advantages of a sequencer and also provides innovative automation options.”


Producer Spot

Link: https://www.producerspot.com/review-alk2-sequenced-looper-by-zenaud-io

“ALK2 by ZenAud.io is a looper/sequencer hybrid, which in my opinion, is an excellent live performance loop sequencer with the potential to become the go-to tool for many musicians, songwriters, and producers.”

“Costing only 39 Euro’s for the “solo” version and 199 Euro’s for the full version, the ALK2 is not only cheaper than your regular looping pedal, it’s just better and a great songwriting tool.”


Ask.Audio

Link: https://ask.audio/articles/review-zen-audio-alk-2

“ALK2 gives a wonderful glimpse into the future of live sequencing and recording.”


Loopop

“For hands-free, pedal-free and worry-free live looping zenAud.io ALK2 is the best possible choice”
