Acon Digital Media has announced the release of Acoustica Premium 4, which extends the standard version of the full-featured audio editor Acoustica with support for multi-channel audio formats such as 5.1 and 7.1 surround. Additionally, the integrated CD burner in Acoustica Premium 4 provides precise control over the details of audio CD productions, such as pause lengths, index markers and CD-TEXT fields.
The processing tools from the following Acon Digital Media plug-in suites are tightly integrated in Acoustica Premium 4, thus providing a simplified workflow and a large range of tools for mastering and sound design:
- Studio Clean (VST and DirectX): Audio restoration tools, including noise reduction, click and crackle reduction, restoration of clipped audio recordings and high frequency harmonic synthesis (gives new life to dull sounding recordings).
- Studio Time (DirectX): Time stretching and pitch shifting (transposition of key).
- Studio Necessities (VST and DirectX): Mastering and sound design tools, including equalizer, dynamic processing, limiter, reverb, chorus, flanger, phaser and multi-tap delay.
These plug-ins are also accessible from any other Direct X and VST (not Studio Time) supporting hosts you may have installed. ASIO support will be added in an upgrade in August (free for Acoustica Premium customers).
Acoustica Premium 4 is available for $119 as electronic delivery from the Acon Digital Media web site. A 30-day trial version is available.
