Sonnox Oxford DeNoiser - Plug-in (Native, Download)
The Oxford DeNoiser from Sonnox is a plug-in that removes wide-band noise from audio material using techniques based around the concept of a "noise profile". The noise profile is used to gate-out components of the frequency spectrum that are below it, while keeping the components that are above it.
The plug-in uses several methods to arrive at an appropriate noise floor. Auto, freeze and manual. It also contains a dedicated DeHisser section before the broadband noise-removal section. This can be used on audio such as dialogue where there isn't a lot of high frequency content that needs preserving, and where the priority is to reduce the hiss to an acceptable level.
A Mid/Side mode allows for de-noising only the Side channel, resulting in mono operation beings entirely unaffected while stereo operation produces a cleaner stereo image without affecting the center. This is particularly useful in broadcast where switching between stereo and mono should not cause a noticeable change in dominant noise content.
Often de-noising can make the material sound a little flat compared with the original. The Oxford DeNoiser has a "Warmth" control in the output section that can quickly add some richness back into the program material.
The DeNoiser Plug-In with its integrated de-hisser delivers surgical broadband noise reduction in real time.
The process is based on a continual analysis of the input signal in order to build a noise profile. Alternatively use Freeze Mode to sample a section of audio containing just target noise. Simply define the threshold below which noise is removed and use the Reduction slider to taste.
We understand the delicate balance between removing noise and retaining the character of your original recording, so have added a Warmth control to return some richness and added a DIFF function to audition only the removed noise.
• Separate DeHiss, Detect & Remove Sections for intuitive use
• High resolution display of input signal & its noise profile
• Frequency Bias Curve to fine-tune noise threshold & reduction
• Mid-Side mode to de-noise only side content
• Warmth control for sweetening after noise removal
• Make-up gain for true A/B comparisons
