Scheps Omni Channel gives you the best of both worlds. Luckily, we were granted the opportunity to try its full standard package out for ourselves, and boy does it live up to the hype. For live sound, Sheps Omni Channel offers zero latency and full discrete control over each stereo channel. The new Measurement section brings all the measurement based tools into one place. Dialogue De-noise Plug-in Reduce the noise floor of a dialogue or vocal recording in real time, without affecting the tone and quality, and make it easier to work with tracks recorded in uncontrolled and untreated spaces—like a spare bedroom or the corner of the basement.
And when working on the spectral editor, some comes into play as well. De-clip Repair digital and analog clipping artifacts to restore distorted audio. They are both more effective and easier to optimise for these roles than general-purpose noise-reduction modules. The second module is Dialogue De-Reverb, which is similar to the existing De-Reverb module but its algorithm is more specifically aimed at removing room ambience from voice recordings. Years of research and innovations in machine learning allowed iZotope to solve some of the most impossible repair issues in audio post production, including lavalier mic rustle and noisy dialogue backgrounds.
The results were also a bit disappointing when removing all the instruments to isolate the vocal track for a remix. The quality is excellent, as long as you keep the adjustments relatively minor. Lastly, De-hum will remove low frequency hum usually 50 or 60 Hz and up to seven harmonics above it. Hands down, when listened to by anyone else, mixed in with the rest of your tracks, we doubt anyone could possibly notice that there was a click track there in the first place. My takeaway is that this module is better suited for subtle adjustments than drastic ones.
They are all now provided to you in one flexible yet fully cohesive channel strip plugin. The Deconstruct module, which allows the noise and tonal elements of a sound to be adjusted independently, sometimes offering a useful alternative approach to noise-reduction tasks, has also been improved, with a new transient gain control and reduced processing artifacts. For live sound, Sheps Omni Channel offers zero latency and full discrete control over each stereo channel. Treat continuous background clicks on old recordings and vinyl transfers. It still sounds good enough to judge rebalancing decisions, but even at the lowered quality, I found that the playback in preview frequently stopped and started, which can be distracting. You will need to enter the provided license in order to get your plugin. The first obvious addition is a new button alongside the Instant Process tools below the waveform display.
One, Dialogue Contour, is somewhat similar to Variable Pitch but explicitly designed for tweaking dialogue intonation issues. Industry leading tools for the home studio Get four of our most essential tools for fixing problems that would otherwise ruin your take. In essence, it is the former Plug-in Pack, but with the stand-alone Editor application bundled as well, so all the standard audio recording and editing facilities of the Standard and Advanced editions are provided, with tools to normalise or fade a track in or out, and to adjust its gain, phase rotation, stereo width and balance. Instantly paint away recording issues like air conditioners, fret noise, outdoor traffic, cell phones, and mic bumps in a matter of seconds. They have added so many new features, some of which I have covered in my video review. Mixers choosing which channel strip to work with often face a dilemma, however: Channel strip plug-ins based on vintage mixing consoles can sound amazing, but tend to tie you down to a very specific and limited sonic color. I tried the Repair Assistant on various audio issues, including recordings with amp hum and noise, vinyl crackle, clicks and clipping.
Working mainly in audio post production, for me the De-rustle, De-wind and Dialogue Isolate are incredible. Advanced is now undisputedly the version for post-production and immersive audio. De-hum automatically identifies the base frequency of unwanted hum, and precisely removes it from the recording along with harmonics—ensuring a clean overall sound without electrical interference. It is this vast amount of features that truly sets iZotope apart from any other audio editing software company out there today — it has found a way to make editing software that we can only describe as magic, as we will likely never be able to understand how it truly works. If you are already a customer, simply sign in and your info is already there. You can also hover your mouse over the preview to see which tools were chosen and open a Sensitivity slider to vary the intensity of the settings.
Machine Learning iZotope have been able to bring the latest machine learning technologies to bear on some of the previously impossible audio repair problems including mic rustle, wind noise, and lifting dialogue out of noisy backgrounds. As a company, has been putting out software and plugins for audio engineers of all types to use and enjoy since its launch in 2001. I highly recommend resizing the module window to make it as large as is comfortable on your monitor, as even at its default size, the tiniest change in the curve creates a pretty significant alteration. De-ess Tame overly aggressive sibilance. Perfect for home recording studios and live performances where ambient noise is an issue.
The fourth, a De-Bleed module, reduces the leakage of one signal onto another, such as headphone spill onto a vocal take. De-plosive Transparently repair unwanted plosives with a single click. These are not meant to replace the existing and powerful Pitch and Time module, which is designed for static adjustments. De-hum Plug-in Get rid of the electrical hum and line noise of ground loops and buzzes that can end up on multitrack recordings, and often only gets caught later in the process. You could hear a lot of phasing and artefacts on the vocal.
