Extract:Dialogue is a plug-in that separates dialogue from common types of background noise such as wind, rustle, traffic, hum, clicks and pops. The algorithm works in real time and is based on deep learning. It has been trained on thousands of high-quality voice recordings and an equally extensive set of common noise sources.
The extensive training enables the artificial intelligence to automatically distinguish dialogue from noise without user interaction. This makes Extract:Dialogueextremely easy to use – just add it to your dialogue bus and let it do its magic.
Version 1.5 requires less CPU and introduces a novel artificial intelligence model that can correct phase distortions and destructive interference between the dialogue and the noise signal. This improves the naturalness of the voice, especially when dealing with noise that overlaps with the dialogue in the frequency spectrum.
Even though the noise reduction is fully automatic, the plug-in interface does offer simple controls to adjust the sensitivity of the noise detection and the maximum noise attenuation. The sensitivity can even be adjusted independently in up to three frequency bands. The maximum attenuation control is very handy when you only want to reduce the noise without removing it completely. All the parameters are fully auto-matable as you would expect.
Acon Digital Extract:Dialogueis available as VST, VST3 or AAX for both Windows and Mac or as AU plug-ins for Mac. There are 32 and 64 bit versions for Windows. The Mac version is 64 bit and runs natively on both ARM (such as Apple M1) and Intel processors.
