Elevayta has announced the release of Klean Boy (v5.03), a tool that can be used to reduce broadband noise and hum from stereo digital recordings.
Typical applications include restoration of audio from tape recordings and vinyl. Where most other similar tools require to learn the noise floor before correction can begin, 'Klean Boy' provides a choice between manual sampling of the noise floor or fully automatic continuous and adaptive extraction of the noise floor. The automatic extraction mode provides the advantage that it can be used on material where no easy sampling of the noise is possible. It is common in such applications that the noise reduction process also removes a considerable portion of the signal of interest. 'Klean Boy' provides a number of proprietary, artifact free, algorithms that are designed to ensure that the noise is reduced while leaving as much of the signal as possible. Control of key parameters enables optimization to a broad range of material.
Above all, 'Klean Boy' is designed to be easy and intuitive to use.
Klean Boy costs $29.95 and is available as a VST effect plug-in for Windows.
