SADiE users since 1993, the “Contact” program, producedby Sacred Heart Program and syndicated to over 300 stations nationwide,portrays stories of real people meeting and surmounting real-lifechallenges.
“Some of the productions in our archives go back as far as the1950s,” says Jim Hone, production director at Sacred Heart Radio.“They were produced at a time when broadcast technology was atone stage. Today, we’re at a completely different stage, one inwhich any artifacts that the older productions have will be magnifiedconsiderably. But with the Retouch system, we can make them sound asgood and new as they did 30 years ago.”
Contemporary productions also receive treatment from Retouch. Sonicartifacts that occur while doing voice-overs and other open-microphonerecording for the show are located and eliminated using Retouchalgorithms and the SADiE workstation.
