3 October 2005

CEDAR Audio can now reveal more information about CEDAR Tools™, the new suite of CEDAR processes that provides original functions and capabilities for Pro Tools® users. Incorporating algorithms developed for our flagship CEDAR Cambridge™ system, the next two modules offer sound quality and facilities not previously available on the platform. In addition to the recently released Retouch for Pro Tools®, visitors to the 119th AES Convention will be able to see:

CEDAR Auto Dehiss for Pro Tools®

CEDAR Tools Auto Dehiss

CEDAR Auto Dehiss for Pro Tools® is a radical noise reduction technology that separates the noise from the wanted signal more accurately than any other process, providing remarkable dehissing while retaining the life and 'air' of the audio. Auto Dehiss is remarkably simple to use, and excellent results can be obtained quickly and easily. See: CEDAR Tools Auto Dehiss.

CEDAR Declip for Pro Tools®

CEDAR Tools Declip

CEDAR Declip for Pro Tools® is a genuine declipping algorithm that allows users to identify and remove most instances of clipping in a single real-time pass. It does so by presenting a visual display of the clipping and by providing intuitive controls that remove the offending samples and reconstruct the signal. See: CEDAR Tools Declip.

Managing Director, Gordon Reid says, "We are very excited about these new processes. We have received a great deal of support and encouragement from everyone at Digidesign while we developed them, and our dealers and customers have been particularly keen to see them appear as soon as possible. The reasons for this are self-evident. There have never been genuine Declip or Auto Dehiss processes available on the Pro Tools® platform, and together with Retouch™, these will provide a suite of new and productive capabilities for Pro Tools® users, not just alternatives for processes that they may already have."

Both new processes are available as AudioSuite plug-ins on the Pro Tools v6.9 (PC) platform onward.
