Expanding on the denoising side of their Era-D audio restoration plugin, Era-N (VST/AU/AAX) employs Accusonus’ patented noise removal algorithms within a one-knob interface. All you need do is choose the frequency range within which the offending signal lies (All, High, Low, High and Low or Mid), and crank the knob up to the point at which it disappears. If the overall volume drops as a consequence, raise the Output gain slider.
With dialog and vocals, Era-N easily does the business, knocking out hiss, hum, rumble and nd any other constant low-level annoyances entirely, usuallyually at a setting low enough to avoid the artefacts that start to creep in as you approach the top end of the knob’s range. On more ‘broadband’ musical material – individual instruments and mixed groups – the results are a little less straightforward, with reverb tails and sustained sounds shortening to a variable degree. The compromise is often worth it, though, as Era-N’s restorative properties work minor wonders on noisy recordings without doing significant damage.
