Free to current users, Capstan v 1.3 enables the user to load audio files larger than 1.5 GB, whereby technical optimizations even with very large files assure a rapid display and editing tempo.
First introduced in 2011, Capstan is used worldwide by “classic” labels, as well as by many mastering and restoration studios, broadcasters and archivists to assist in the rescue of historical recordings.
Capstan is based on Celemony’s DNA (Direct Note Access) technology, which is also used by their flagship software Melodyne, and is capable of detecting wow and flutter from the music itself – regardless of the medium (magnetic tape, vinyl, etc.), rather than relying solely on reading the bias: Capstan still functions even if the tape has been copied several times or digitized at low sampling rates.
The updated Capstan supports the high resolution display with HiDPI on suitable Windows systems and is compatible with the most recent iLok driver software.
Pricing and Availability. Celemony Capstan 1.3 is available now. The update can be used on a trial basis for US$/€ 199 for five days; the permanent Capstan license costs US$ 4,458/€ 3,790.
