reNOVAtor from Algorithmix is an application that functions both as a plug-in within supported hosts or stand-alone, and provides the ability to eliminate unwanted audio events from recorded material while perfectly preserving the sound quality of the original material. This is possible due to any spectral modification being executed in the linear-phase domain, making reNOVAtor the perfect solution for the mastering, audio post or forensic professional.
The software loads and analyzes the chosen part of the audio material and displays the result as a 3D spectrogram, with time on the horizontal axis, frequency on the vertical axis, and the amplitude of the spectral components, color-coded. After localization and removal of the unwanted audio, the removed sound is replaced by a signal re-synthesized from the surrounding material.
The software easily removes unwanted noises like sneezing, chair squeaks, coughs, car horns, coins and keys falling down, rumbles and the ringing of a cell phone, etc. Additionally, correction of instrumental tracks is possible by removing scratches (guitar, violin), wrong notes, rustle of sheet music, breathing, lip-smacks of a vocalist, or pedals squeaks of a piano or organ. Restoration of old recordings is possible by removing scratches and dropouts.
