Announcing UNCHIRP Lossy Codec Artifact Removal and UNFILTER Adaptive Tonal Contour Linearization Processors

We're excited to announce the introduction of two new plug-ins, UNCHIRP and UNFILTER, at the Frankfurt Musikmesse, Hall 5.1 Booth A91 (April 10-13, 2013).

UNCHIRP is a real-time plug-in that removes the most objectionable artifacts associated with low bit-rate lossy audio encoding, de-noising, and other processes that operate in the frequency domain, commonly referred to as ChirpingWarblingThe Tweeties or Underwater-Sound. This type of artifact has so far been virtually impossible to remove due to its narrow-band and short-time nature. UNCHIRP salvages poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a poor GSM/satellite uplink, footage recorded with consumer mobile devices, and material that has been de-noised too aggressively.

UNFILTER is a real-time plug-in utilizing a blind de-convolution process to remove filtering effects, such as comb filtering, resonance, or excessive equalization – effectively linearizing the frequency response of a signal virtually automatically. UNFILTER also removes slow moving flanger/chorus effects, and can apply a detected filter response to another signal, or store it for later use. Applications include repairing poorly mic'd production sound or musical recordings, adapting multiple sounds to be in the same acoustic "world", removing "boominess" or resonance, generally re-balancing the spectral contour of a signal or creatively designing new sounds.

Both plug-ins will be shown as prototypes at the Musikmesse, and will come as AudioUnits, AAX Native, RTAS and VST for both Mac and Windows operating systems.

UNCHIRP will be available on May 6th, and UNFILTER on May 20th, 2013, from our website as well as through select international resellers.
