Our friends Acon Digital have released “Restoration Suite 1.8″, with improved DeNoise Tool. The update is free for all current Restoration Suite owners and available from the Acon Digital site.
The focus in version 1.8 is DeNoise, which has received several quality improvements. A new soft knee parameter allows for more natural transitions between noise and the wanted signal. It is in most situations desirable to leave a certain noise floor in the restored signal and it is easier to achieve a natural sounding residual noise with the new update.
Furthermore, the attack and release times are now adaptive and automatically adjusted according to the input material. The controls are still there, but these are now representing the maximum attack and release times. The noise profile estimation in the adaptive broadband noise mode is now capable of a better discrimination between noise and the wanted signal.
