At Frankfurt Musikmesse, Zynaptiq is introducing UNVEIL, a real-time de-reverberation and signal focusing plug-in based on Zynaptiq’s proprietary artificial intelligence based MAP (Mixed-Signal Audio Processing) technology, in Hall 5.1, booth A91. UNVEIL is available as an Audio Units (AU) plug-in, with VST and AAX support for both Mac and Windows platforms planned for later in 2012.
UNVEIL is a real-time, de-mixing based plug-in that allows for attenuating or boosting reverb components within a mixed signal of any channel count, including mono sources, as well as modifying contained reverb characteristics. Additionally, Zynaptiq states that UNVEIL can bring the key features of a recording into focus, or move them to the background, by attenuating or boosting perceptually less important signal components.
According to the company, UNVEIL offers applications for recording, mix and mastering engineers, producers, film mixers, sound designers and Foley artists.
“Removing reverb from recordings has always been difficult, if not impossible,” says Zynaptiq CEO Denis H. Goekdag. “Existing de-reverberation strategies either manipulate signal dynamics, require specific channel formats, are limited to certain signal types, or all of the above. Not so with UNVEIL, which effectively ‘listens’ to your signal and discerns which parts of the signal are reverb, much like a human would, and then allows you to manipulate just those parts, even when processing mono sources. As it turns out, the process is not limited to processing reverb, but can bring out or move back the key elements of a recording nicely. Dialog editors, mix engineers for music and film, music producers as well as sound designers will make good use of this tool.”
Until Monday, March 26, a free trial version of UNVEIL is available from the Zynaptiq Website.
