CEDAR Audio announces the DNS One dialogue noise suppressor Pro Tools plug-in (4/3/2010)

We are very proud to introduce one of the most significant product innovations in CEDAR’s history, and perhaps one of the most significant in the whole field of audio post. DNS One signals the arrival of CEDAR’s Academy Award winning DNS series as a Pro Tools plug-in. There are no compromises in power, audio quality or flexibility… just hundreds of channels of the highest quality of dialogue noise suppression in a simple-to-use and highly efficient software form.

DNS One is everything you ever wanted from a software-based dialogue noise suppressor. A Pro Tools plug-in that runs on both Mac OS X and Windows, it makes no compromises in sound quality and offers the same Academy Award winning performance as its illustrious siblings, the DNS1500, DNS2000 and DNS3000. Coupled to a superb new user-interface that allows you to control hundreds of channels of DNS (software and hardware, in any mix you choose) from a single Pro Tools host, DNS One is the most powerful and flexible noise suppressor ever developed.

Why DNS?

Noise is all around us: traffic, aircraft, the noise inside vehicles, rain and other water noises, the noise from domestic appliances and even excessive reverberation. It renders many recordings unusable, so noise suppression techniques are used to clean up dialogue for film production, to suppress ambient noise for live TV and radio broadcasting, to revitalise sound effects libraries, and to enhance speech for forensic audio investigation.

Until CEDAR’s DNS technology was developed, you were forced to use processes such as low-pass filters, noise gates, dynamics processes, or processes developed from analogue encode/decode noise reduction systems. Thankfully, you can now remove the rumble, general background, whistles and camera noise from contaminated audio using DNS, the modern standard and the tool of choice for removing background noise from dialogue.

Power and control

Offering all the power and audio quality of our dedicated hardware products, DNS One is a superbly flexible, fully automated implementation of DNS designed specifically for Pro Tools users. It’s ideal for all studio environments, and especially for post-production for film, TV and video.

It makes unusable interviews intelligible, saves huge costs in ADR, and has rescued dialogue for countless movies. In the words of one member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, DNS was “probably used on every major movie coming out of Hollywood in the past couple of years”, and can now be found on virtually all dubbing stages worldwide.

You control DNS One using the dedicated DNS Control System software. More than just a GUI for DNS One, this RTAS plug-in for Pro Tools LE and HD systems runs on both Mac OS X and Windows, and allows you to control as many instances of DNS One as your host system can support, plus up to 126 DNS2000s and/or DNS3000s. It is also fully integrated with Pro Tools’ automation and its hardware control surfaces such as the Icon, D-Control and D-Command. The DNS Control System is completely cross-compatible between DNS One, the DNS2000 and the DNS3000, so users can install DNS One alongside existing hardware units, creating sessions on one and later, if desired, recalling them on either of the others.

Academy Award winning technology

The CEDAR DNS1000 introduced the noise reduction technology upon which all subsequent DNS products have been based. It was the most successful product of its type ever manufactured, and has been used by TV, film and post studios worldwide. In February 2005, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences recognised this by awarding Technical Achievement Awards (“Technical Oscars”) to its designers.   AddThis Social Bookmark Button
