The World Cup HORN SUPPRESSOR plugin allows suppressing the droning sound of compressor horns, popular at the 2018 soccer games, in real-time, leaving individual “honks” and other stadium ambience as well as commentary virtually untouched. This is made possible using a technology known as source (signal) separation, a.k.a. de-mixing, where state-of-the-art artificial intelligence techniques are combined with precision filtering to “unbake the cake”, providing after-the-fact access to the different sounds that make up a mix.

Already in use at Denmark’s TV2 for their World Cup game transmissions, World Cup Horn Suppressor is available now to broadcasters that apply for a free 3-month license.

 “We were getting complaints about the compressor horns being too dominant in the audio of our World Cup transmissions, and there really wasn’t a lot that could be done about that with traditional tools.” said Jens Lyd, sound engineer at TV2, Denmark. “So we contacted Zynaptiq – and within days, they provided an easy-to-use solution that quite simply completely fixed the issue for us.”

Supports VST 2.x, VST 3.x, AU, RTAS and AAX Native on Mac And PC
