UNCHIRP is a plug-in for removing the most obnoxious artifacts associated with lossy audio encoding and other FFT based processes, such as spectral de-noising. The plug-in can reduce Musical Noise, suppress high frequency Chirping (also known as Underwater Sound, Warbling or The Tweeties), fix Transient Smearing, and restore lost high frequencies, simultaneously and in real-time. UNCHIRP salvages poorly encoded music, speech that has gone through a low bit rate uplink, material that has been de-noised too aggressively, or footage recorded with consumer mobile devices – and can be used to add contour and vibrance to already great sounding recordings.
The UNCHIRP features at a glance:
Suppression of high frequency Chirping artifacts.
Reduction of Musical Noise artifacts.
Transient Synthesis to augment or replace smeared, over-limited or otherwise compromised transients.
Psycho-Acoustically optimized Treble Boost circuit with Enhance and Excite modes.
Break-Point Curve Editor based frequency-dependent processing.
Side-only algorithm mode for working with joint-stereo encoded material.
HD algorithm mode for increased quality processing with higher CPU load (off-line processing recommended).
SYNC parameter allows processing to be synchronized to signal transients for increasing clarity.
Output limiter for unsupervised use in batch processing applications.
Highly time-efficient workflow and UI.
UNCHIRP comes as AudioUnits, RTAS, AAX Native and VST plug-in for both Mac and Windows operating systems, and is available now, separately or as part of the ZAP Bundle. A free trial version is available from the product page.
