Automatic Speech Cleanup Plug-in Based on Artificial Intelligence

LOS ANGELES, AUGUST 7, 2018 - Audionamix, the global leader in audio source separation, releases the IDC: Instant Dialogue Cleaner plug-in, its first real-time, cloudless solution that uses deep neural network (DNN) artificial intelligence to automatically clean up speech. IDC features unique and effective dialogue cleaning technology through an intuitive interface, offering powerful cleanup with the turn of a knob.

Unlike traditional denoisers that learn and remove noise profiles, IDC automatically detects and separates speech regardless of the surrounding content. IDC therefore excels where other tools struggle, and addresses complex audio issues including wind, birds or insects, car and plane interference and troubleshooting distant, roomy recordings. Users can quickly and easily clean up dialogue from production audio, field recordings, news and sports recordings and more, making it the perfect tool for audio post professionals, dialogue editors, re-recording mixers and broadcast engineers.

"IDC is unique because unlike traditional denoisers that learn and remove noise, it works by separating and preserving speech, regardless of the interference," says Maciej Zielinski, CEO of Audionamix. "This plug-in offers immediate dialogue clean up with the turn of a knob and addresses common audio issues such as complex variable noise interference including weather, traffic noise, music and room ambience."

The feature set includes +/- 24dB independent gain control over separated background and speech elements, allowing users to remove unwanted background content and preserve separated speech. The separation strength parameter controls the amount of separated background to avoid artifacts.

IDC is available in VST2, VST3, AU, AAX Native and AudioSuite formats for both Mac and Windows systems. The plug-in supports sample rates from 44.1kHz to 192kHz, bit depths between 16 and 32-bits, and features fully-automatable plug-in settings. IDC is currently available for the retail price of $199.
