The ZAP Audio Processors Bundle from Zynaptic offers four powerful audio manipulation plug-ins that can be used in music production, sound design, mixing, sample restoration and more. It includes the UNVEIL De-Reverberation and Signal Focusing plug-in, the UNFILTER Adaptive Tonal Contour Linearization plug-in, UNCHIRP Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval plug-in, and the PITCHMAP Polyphonic Pitch Manipulation plug-in.

The bundle supports AU, VST 2.4, RTAS, AAX Native, and AudioSuite plug-in formats on Mac and VST 2.4, RTAS, AAX Native, and AudioSuite plug-in formats on PC.

  • UNFILTER - Adaptive Tonal Contour Linearization Plug-In
    UNFILTER from zynaptiq is a versatile frequency response tool with a broad range of applications. The real-time plug-in is able to automatically remove filtering effects, such as comb filtering, resonance, or excessive equalization. Applications include audio post for film sound, music production and mastering, broadcast and ENG, sound design, and forensics. The plug-in can also apply a detected filter response to another signal, or export it to disk as an impulse response.

    When doing post-production for film sound, the automatic recognition of frequency response anomalies is extremely useful for cleaning up production sound, and especially for enhancing the intelligibility of dialog. In music production and mastering, fine-tuning the frequency response of a signal is one of the most commonly encountered tasks. While recordings of acoustic instruments and live performances can often exhibit unwanted peaks and notches. Here the high-precision filtering engine makes it a very flexible solution for these issues.

    For broadcasting audio, it is important to maintain a consistent and balanced audio spectrum, to ensure optimal performance of all down-stream systems, and to provide a high-quality, consistent and non-fatiguing listening experience to the audience. As the acoustic properties of the footage used can vary strongly to say the least, this is no trivial task. Electronic News Gathering (ENG) often requires using small, portable and inconspicuous devices, and/or low bandwidth transmission systems. The software's adaptive processing aids in making even the most difficult footage usable.

    The ability to completely reshape the spectral contour of a signal, extract the filter response from a sound and apply it to a different file, and to solo the noisy components contained in a sound makes it an excellent tool for designing new sounds. When applied to the field of forensics, the plug-in can assist in extracting information from recordings in multiple ways. Intelligibility of speech recordings can be greatly enhanced, the filtering effects of microphone occlusion can be removed, and sounds buried beneath others can be made more audible.

  • UNCHIRP Codec Artifact Removal & Transient Retrieval Plug-In
    UNCHIRP from Zynaptiq is a codec artifact removal and transient retrieval plug-in that is designed for removing artifacts associated with lossy audio encoding and other FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) based processes, such as spectral de-noising. Reduce musical noise, suppress high frequency chirping and warbling sounds, fix transient smearing, and restore lost high frequencies using UNCHIRP's artifact suppression and transient enhancement functions. If you need to salvage poorly encoded music or vocals, or material that has been de-noised too strongly, UNCHIRP can help you remove the unwanted artifacts and improve transient definition, thereby improving audio quality.

    The plug-in supports AU, VST 2.4, RTAS, AAX Native, and AudioSuite plug-in formats on Mac and VST 2.4, RTAS, AAX Native, and AudioSuite plug-in formats on PC.
    Features:
    • 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
    • Workflow and UI designed for efficiency 

     

  • Unveil 1.6 De-Reverberation and Signal Focusing Processor Plug-In
    The Unveil 1.6 De-Reverberation & Signal Focusing Processor Plug-In from Zynaptiq is a real time Audio Unit, VST 2.4, and RTAS/AAX compatible plug-in that can boost or attenuate the reverb level on mono or stereo tracks. It is based on Zynaptiq's proprietary Mixed-Signal Audio Processing, or MAP technology, which works by internally isolating sonically important elements in a mix, and then allowing you to increase or decrease them. The Unveil also uses a model of the human auditory system to isolate the elements we perceive as reverb, and then separating those elements from the mix.

    The 64-bit Unveil can be used in a variety of audio applications, including mixing, mastering, and audio for film. Film mixers can clean up dialog or location sound that might have been previously unusable, removing those elements that often cause noise or muddiness. Mastering engineers can remove reverb from over-saturated mixes, and since it works on mono sources as well as stereo, mixing engineers can easily use the Unveil on individual tracks.
    Audio engineers can attenuate reverb in recordings
    Film mixers and dialog editors can remove reverb from dialog and location sound
    Music producers can turn vintage drum-loops rich in reverb into dry recordings, and vice-versa
    Foley artists can remove ambience from sub-optimally captured sounds
    Mix and mastering engineers can bring key mix elements into focus by attenuating components commonly referred to as "mud"
  • Pitchmap 1.5 Real Time Polyphonic Pitch Processor Plug-In
    The Zynaptiq Pitchmap 1.5 Real Time Polyphonic Pitch Processor Plug-In is a real time, 64-bit pitch processor that allows you to change the pitch of individual elements of a mixed track. Using either Pitchmap's interface or a MIDI keyboard, you can change the melodies and harmonies of a track, or adjust the pitch and key of an entire mix.

    Using Zynaptiq's Mixed-Signal Audio Processing, or MAP technology, the Pitchmap breaks a mixed track into its individual components, including its harmonics and transients, before giving you control over their pitch. With the track broken down, you can make changes ranging from subtle corrections in tuning to completely change the key or melodies in the performance or eliminating components altogether. Pitchmap includes a layer of processing dedicated solely to vocal elements, called Natural Mode, which handles the nuances of this range for more realistic pitch adjustment.

    Pitchmap also allows you to change the overall sonic landscape of your tracks. With the Purify and Electrify parameters, you can alter how synthetic or realistic the changes to your track are, adding another level of sound design. The plug-in supports AU, VST 2.4, RTAS, AAX Native, and AudioSuite plug-in formats on Mac and VST 2.4, RTAS, AAX Native, and AudioSuite plug-in formats on PC.
