Waves Audio Introduces W43 Noise Reduciton Plugin

— Affordable and easy-to-use, W43 is inspired by the classic Cat. 43 hardware noise reduction tool —

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, August 16, 2010 — Waves Audio, a leading provider of digital signal processing solutions, unveils the third processor in the Waves Post Production line, the W43 Noise Reduction Plugin. Inspired by the classic, long-out-of-production Cat. 43 hardware noise reduction tool, Waves’ new W43 builds upon the legacy of this hard-to-find unit that has been a post production favorite for decades. Ambient noise like hiss, hum, traffic noise, wind and air conditioning can all wreak havoc on a dialogue track, but with the Waves W43 plugin, they’re a thing of the past. The W43 delivers high-quality, minimal artifact multiband noise reduction like the original hardware, while adding all the advantages of software.

Waves W43 offers easy-to-use four-band noise suppression controlled by four faders, a global threshold and an “engage� button. The W43’s workflow approach and interface will be very familiar to engineers who perform noise reduction using the Cat. 43. Both PC- and Mac®-compatible, W43 supports multiple simultaneous instances and features true Pro Tools integration, full recall, zero latency, full automation, up to 24-bit, 192kHz resolution, and support for TDM, RTAS, Audio Suite, VST and AU. Also, no degradation of sound resulting from I/O conversion occurs. more

JESSUP, MARYLAND – JUNE 2010: A direct descendent of Saul Walker’s original 1967 design, the API 512C modular mic preamp embodies the legendary API sound and has been a mainstay of engineers for over three decades. Coming on the heels of API’s 40th anniversary and the delivery of the 100th 1608 console, the company recently celebrated another milestone: delivery of the 10,000th 512C. To mark the event, API president Larry Droppa dropped a note inside the 10,000th box. Toronto-based guitarist and composer Brian Legere received the unit, the note, and – complements of API – API 512C number 10,001!

Legere has been working in the Toronto-area for nearly thirty years – almost as long as the API 512C has been in production. An accomplished guitar player, Legere has worked in the studio with famed producer Daniel Lanois (U2, Peter Gabriel, Bob Dylan); both men grew up in Hamilton Ontario. Legere’s compositions and guitar work can be heard on the Speed Channel’s “Dream Car Garage” and “Chop Cut Rebuild.” more

CBC/Radio-Canada Montreal Aaudio Post Produciton Adds Sonnox Restore

jean-diamant-cbc-radio-canada.jpgMONTREAL: CBC/RADIO-CANADA Audio Postproduction has selected the Sonnox Restore suites for use on the full range of its multifaceted programming.

Jean Diamant, CBC Supervising Technician – TV Technical Production, reports, “We added Sonnox Restore Suites to the CBC/Radio-Canada Montreal audio postproduction software inventory because they have an intuitive interface, a wide range of parameters and the ability to process quickly as AudioSuite plug-ins. They also complement our other restoration products.”

Since much of CBC/Radio-Canada’s programming originates in location recording environments, it is often accompanied by extraneous noise from many sources including: air and ground traffic, indigenous wildlife and weather. It is critical that these recordings be as clear as possible both for interpreters translating the original material, and for enhanced listener comprehension. CBC/Radio-Canada also maintains an extensive library of pre-recorded and historical material, which requires repair for improved clarity. more
