CEDAR invented spectral editing but, not content to leave things as they were, we have continued to research ways to improve it, making it faster and easier to use, able to cure a more extensive range of problems, as well as making it even more productive in a wider range of settings.

For example, there are many occasions when you will encounter similar instances of unwanted sounds in a track - things such as hi-hat spill, over-excited sibilants and plosives, or even the repetitive noises caused by machinery. Until now, one would remove these by identifying each event individually and then defining it manually, but today you can mark one of the offending sounds and then ask the machine learning algorithm in Retouch 8 to find all of the other instances within the recording. You can then eliminate them individually or as a group using the appropriate Retouch tool. The increase in productivity is absolutely remarkable. In addition to this, the AI in the new Repair tool can identify, suppress, or reveal sounds while leaving the background in a marked region untouched. Unlike other spectral editing tools, only the significant signal within the region is processed; all low level signals as well as the ambience are left unaffected.

It's hard to put into words just how innovative and powerful these updates are. But once you've used CEDAR for Pyramix 64 v8, you'll wonder how you ever managed without it.

CEDAR for Pyramix 64 v8 is available immediately. Pricing is available from CEDAR or your local Merging Technologies offices and dealers, as are details about upgrading from previous versions of CEDAR for Pyramix.

CEDAR Audio's partnership with Merging Technologies stretches back to the earliest Pyramix systems in the mid-1990s, when CEDAR developed their first broadband noise reduction system. Today, CEDAR for Pyramix is derived from CEDAR's multi-award-winning CEDAR Studio™ and CEDAR Cambridge™ flagships, allowing users to eliminate problems and significantly improve the quality of their audio. It provides unsurpassed results, quickly, and with the minimum of fuss and user intervention.

Merging provides the RAVENNA/AES67 solution for the new studio facility

Given a reputation for producing award winning products and with a majority of employees being keen musicians, setting up a recording facility in the new headquarters in Cambridge, MA was a serious endeavour.  To support its purpose as both a testing facility and as a not-for-profit recording and mastering studio, careful equipment choice was paramount.   That task fell to iZotope’s Chief Engineer and Education Director, Jonathan Wyner and renowned acoustician, Francis Manzella.  Critical components in the listening chain are the mic pres and the A/D and D/A converters. The final choice was Merging’s Horus Networked Converters partnered with PMC monitors, Avid S3 EUCON Controllers with an IHSE Draco Tera KVM Matrix, Dangerous Audio compressors and Grace Monitor Controllers.
