Acon Digital Media has announced Acoustica Premium 4. The software for professional audio editing and mastering extends the standard version of the full-featured audio editor Acoustica with support for multichannel audio formats such as 5.1 and 7.1 surround. Additionally, the integrated CD burner in Acoustica Premium 4 provides control over the details of audio CD productions, such as pause lengths, index markers and CD-TEXT fields.
The processing tools from the following Acon Digital Media plug-in suites are integrated in Acoustica Premium 4, providing a simplified workflow and a large range of professional quality tools for mastering and sound design:
- Studio Clean (VST and DirectX) – Audio restoration tools, including noise reduction, click and crackle reduction, restoration of clipped audio recordings and high frequency harmonic synthesis (gives new life to dull sounding recordings).
- Studio Time (DirectX) – Professional quality time stretching and pitch shifting (transposition of key).
- Studio Necessities (VST and DirectX) – Mastering and sound design tools, including equalizer, dynamic processing, limiter, reverb, chorus, flanger, phaser and multi-tap delay.
The plug-ins from any of the three plug-in suites are also accessible from audio software applications supporting the DirectX plug-in interface standard. In case of Studio Clean and Studio Necessities, VST plug-in compatible applications are also supported. ASIO support will be added in an upgrade (free for Acoustica Premium customers) in August.
