DC EIGHT's New Big Click Filter
DC EIGHT's Enhanced Tune Library
NEW To DC EIGHT!
|Big clicks have
always been a problem for audio restoration enthusiasts. When you
remove a large click from your audio file, it leaves a gaping hole with no
good audio to reference. So what did we do? We improved the method
we use to predict the audio that is missing and solved the
new synthesizer helps recreate the lower frequencies that have been lost
over time. Helps create a new rich low end that adds texture and
warmth to your recordings.
opposite of the Subharmonic Synth...this intelligent synthesizer helps
replace higher frequencies that have been lost over time.
Tune Library Enhancements
and more folks are using the Tune Library as a serious librarian and
playback facility for your audio collection. We've built this area
of the program to make it even more useful by including a CD Player,
direct Tune Library access to the MultiFilter, handy spacebar playback,
shuttle play, new time display and an updated list of default
Format Support Enhancements
added support for new Broadcast Wave files (BWF), wave file header
editing, Vorbis Lossy Compresssion, and FLAC lossless compression
To Right Waveform Playback Scrolling
right edge of the screen no longer provides a barrier to your
playback. Now you can zoom in and play a file and the screen will
scroll to the left as you reach the end of the window.
like the old days of rocking the tape reels to zero in on a problem area,
you can use your mouse to scan left and right while also adjusting the
pitch to match your movements.
added data disc burning capability
for CDs, DVDs & CDR-Ws, Disc at once mode added to the CD burner, CD
text support added to the CD burner
Important Legacy Features
Suppression In Continuous Noise Filter
|This new technology
reduces the aliasing and artifacting that sometimes affects the quality of
the sound when you're pushing the Continuous Noise Filter to its limits.
As you increase the power and amount of filtering on a tough file, in the
past, you could generate new noise called artifacting. This
machine-like ghosting was quite annoying and we'll be very happy to see it
showing up much less in our restorations. Artifact suppression mode
helps you push the Continuous Noise Filter harder without yielding these
Tune Library Database View
|This is cool new
feature that increases both the power of DC SEVEN and the uses for the
product. The Tune Library is a database view that now lets you
store, audition, and catalog your entire collection...all within the
familiar confines of DC SEVEN. You can build playlists, burn CDs,
track every single audio file on your computer...without ever having to
copy it to one folder! It supports MP3, WMA and your wave files all
in the same environment and makes it easy to organize your entire
portfolio of audio.
|This novel new
approach to RIAA equalization offers more accuracy and better sound to any
record type. The Virtual Phono Preamp works great in conjunction
with our flat phono preamps and offers you the best possible approach and
most accurate EQ ever developed for vinyl restoration. This powerful
new approach also includes a 3-band EQ, gain adjustment, balance controls
and a 30 Hz Rumble filter to make recording your files a breeze...no
matter what setup you present to DC SEVEN.
|We love new
tools...especially tools that cover a category that wasn't covered before.
Many times during restoration, you come across tiny clicks that lie just
beneath the surface of your good audio that are hard to eliminate with
standard click removal techniques. We saw these lemons and made
lemonade with our new Narrow Crackle Filter. After the Standard or
Easy Impulse filters have done their jobs, a new step will be the Narrow
Crackle Filter that cleans up the minute clicks you used to have to live
|We've improved just
about every facet of our Impulse filters and you'll notice enhancements
down the line with every slider you move...but most importantly, we've
added a new checkbox that makes special consideration for brass and strong
vocal passages that used to confuse the filters and remove good audio.
With this new enhancement, you can push the Impulse filters to new heights
and achieve even better results over competing products.
And Squish Redesign
|Our time compression
and expansion filter has been upgraded in the same way you blink your eyes
and your Ford Taurus becomes a Mustang Fastback! Now you can make
major changes to both speed and pitch of your audio files with no
discernable difference in quality. Where the old time compression
expansion tool was effective with only about a 10% increase or decrease in
speed, you'll be amazed with what you can achieve using the new guy.
Even if you've never used this tool before, you must try it...if nothing
else but for the "giggle factor".
View Now Included
|Used to be, you had
to be a Forensics specialist and pay $1400 to get the Spectrogram view in
your audio restoration. No more. The spectrogram view is sort
of like an X-ray for sound. Sometimes stray clicks and pops can hide
within the standard Time Domain View that you're used to seeing with
virtually every audio editor. The Spectrogram let's you peer into
the Frequency domain in a way you've never seen before. Those hidden
clicks stick out like a sore thumb in the Spectrogram. "Come
out, come out, where ever you are!"
Support for WMA and MP3
you can easily convert back and forth between these popular compress

Now you can apply click and hiss removal to clean up your file and then,
in that same session, add some reverb and equalization to enhance your
final product. This is a great time saver because you can handle
many tasks in one single pass through your audio.
click noise reduction. Now, even the most inexperienced user can
clean their treasured vinyl and tape recordings with one click of the
mouse. DC SEVEN includes a powerful new automated system that
seeks and destroys clicks, pops, hiss, hum and other disturbances common
to older recordings.
you can quickly and easily convert your audio CDs to Wave files or MP3
files using DC SEVEN's new CD Ripper. Just go to File/Open, choose
your CD Rom drive and select any number of the files there to be
transferred immediately to wave audio so you can work on them with DC SEVEN.

You can even use them in the DC SEVEN Multi-Filter.
a bunch of files of varying volumes that you'd like to make into a CD?
No problem, just go into our Batch File editor and tell it to Auto Level
these files. The Auto Leveler will raise the level or normalize all
of the files so that your CD level will not fluctuate during playback.
Filtering Added To Continuous Noise Filter
intelligent filter adapts itself to the changing nature of the noise in
your file. As it gets smarter, your noise disappears.
CD Database Integration
you're working with CDs, DC SEVEN will instantly dial up the Internet CD
Database and assign the names to all of your tracks before you rip them.
This will save you the time of doing a Save As when you name the files.
wave file format has a 2 gigabyte limit. For those of you recording
long radio shows or other events, this can be a real problem. Not
with DC SEVEN. Though we can't fix the problem for Microsoft, we can
find a nifty way of working around it. As we approach the limit, we
simply stop the recording and open a second file. You get your whole
recording...just split into several files.
of our customers wanted the ability to open an AVI file and extract the
audio for editing. Many of our customers will now be happy!
You can play an AVI within DC SEVEN, you can select an area and extract the
the new FAT BASS section of our Virtual Valve Tube Simulator, you can
build up weak or inadequate bass lines in your favorite tunes and get
those floors rattling again.
Band Graphic EQ Added
powerful and easy to use enhancement and noise reduction tool.
|Two 100 segment VU
meters can be displayed which will indicate the output of any filters that
are being used. These meters indicate the level of the left and
right channels and have both average and peak reading ballistics.
|This new mode of
operation allows instant editing with each level saved in the Fast Edit
History Window, so instant undo over numerous levels is easy.
Cut/Copy/Paste instantly…regardless of file length.
|Multi-Codec Sensor Support
automatically scans your system for Codecs and adjusts to whichever ones you have installed on your machine.
Echo Effect contains two independent delay lines, which can be used in a
number of different modes providing it with a great deal of flexibility
compared to the old analog systems.
Because it performs its function utilizing digital techniques, it
does not suffer from the noise and distortion buildup associated with the
older analog systems.
|This cool feature is
a four band dynamic expander (punch) and compressor (crunch). It is
a great method for breathing new life back into recordings.
|You don’t need to
necessarily have your audio recorded to the hard drive to take advantage
of the numerous features of SIX. Live
mode allows you to run dirty audio in the inputs of your sound card, set
up your numerous filters on the screen and have cleaned audio flow out the
output of your sound card in real time.
|This process is not
only much easier to manage, but it also finds and repairs a much wider
range of clicks and pops.
|Very often, files will become “clipped” if the input on the sound card is turned up too high and the sound card is overloaded. The results are usually distortion and a waveform that is “flattened out” on top. The new DeClipper helps remove this distortion and reform the waveforms.
DC EIGHT Also Includes:
Sample Rate Conversion
- Quickly convert your files from one common sample rate and bit depth to another.
LIVE Feed through Mode
-You don’t need to necessarily have your audio recorded to the hard drive to take advantage of the numerous features of
