At Musikmesse the producers of Unveil, the great de-reverb programme, are going to announce two more “Un”Products, UNCHIRP and UNFILTER. This is what they are saying about them…
UNCHIRP is a real-time plug-in that allows removing the most obnoxious artifacts associated with low bit-rate lossy audio encoding, de-noising and other processes that operate in the frequency domain, commonly referred to as Chirping, Warbling, The Tweeties or Underwater-Sound. This type of artifact has so far been virtually impossible to remove due to its narrow-band and short-time nature. If you need to salvage poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a poor GSM/satellite uplink, material that has been de-noised with sub-optimal settings or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices, UNCHIRP is your (only) friend.
UNFILTER is a real-time plug-in utilizing a blind de-convolution process to remove filtering effects, such as comb filtering, resonance, or excessive equalization – effectively linearizing the frequency response of a signal virtually automatically. UNFILTER also removes slow moving flanger/chorus effects and can apply a detected filter response to another signal, or store it for later use. And yes, you can even undo synthesizer-type resonant filtering to some extent. UNFILTER makes time-consuming and often impossible tasks as effortless as setting a handful of our super-slick “trackball” sliders. Whether you need to repair poorly mic’d production sound or musical recordings, adapt the character of multiple sounds to the same acoustic “world”, equalize away “boominess” or resonance, generally re-balance the spectral contour of a signal, or creatively design new sounds – UNFILTER is the tool for you.
More from at Musikmesse team when we have it. If you are at Musikmesse then do go along to their stand, they have single malt whiskey on tap.
