Acon Digital has announced the new version 1.2 update of its Extract:Dialogue noise suppression plugin that’s designed to separate dialogue from common types of background noise such as wind, rustle, traffic, hum, clicks and pops.
Version 1.2 includes a new neural network model, developed in collaboration with Soundly, a sound effects platform with a user-friendly software package and a large library of professional quality audio recordings.
“Our partnership with Soundly allows us to gain access to a massive library of consistently labeled audio recordings that we can use as high-quality training material for our neural networks,” says Stian Aagedal, CEO of Acon Digital. “The quality of the training set is reflected in the robust noise suppression that the latest version of our Extract:Dialogue plugin offers.” There were also improvements in the structure of the neural network that lead to better performance and less perceivable artifacts.
Acon Digital Extract:Dialogue is available for both Windows (PC) and macOS (Macintosh). Both 32- and 64-bit versions are available for Windows and the version for macOS is 64-bit. Plugin formats VST, VST3, AAX Native / AudioSuite and Audio Units (macOS only) are supported.
Extract:Dialogue is available in the Acon Digital Store for $99.90 USD, and it’s also included in Acoustica Premium Edition 7.x, the audio editing, mastering and restoration package that is available for $199.90 USD.
