CEDAR Audio approves Dante Virtual Soundcard for CEDAR Cambridge.

After extensive testing, CEDAR Audio is delighted to announce its approval of the Dante Virtual Soundcard for CEDAR Cambridge, providing a seamless and cost-effective way to connect its flagship system to Dante networks.

Tony Webster, Senior Engineer for CEDAR Cambridge explained, "Audio over IP is the modern way to connect audio systems and Dante Virtual Soundcard offers three immediate benefits to our users: it's quick, it's simple, and it's very affordable. It provides a robust way for connected systems to communicate over longer distances using much more convenient and more reliable network cabling - cabling that probably already exists throughout the user's premises - and it's especially beneficial for customers with larger, distributed audio networks. They will now be able to patch other Dante equipped systems to CEDAR Cambridge's Ethernet port with no special cables or converters needed, and no more moving of equipment or servers around the facility."

Dante Virtual Soundcard is available direct from Audinate, the manufacturer of Dante.

🙂 When audio engineers meet for coffee...

SoundGirl Alexandra Parral told us about her first experience of listening to the CEDAR DNS 2. She told us, "My friend Manuel Lopez owns the DNS 2, and was showing it to me for the first time. He invited me for a latte and demonstrated to me how great it works”.

We couldn't agree more!

The Sonifex RB-HD6 headphone distribution amplifier (http://bit.ly/snfxhd6) has six independent headphone amps that can be fed either from a common stereo input, or from an individual feed plugged into each amp's 'override' input jack. That way, you can provide a common feed for guests and different feeds for presenters, interviewers, or producers.

Each amp has its own volume control, and a master volume adjusts overall level of the common stereo input. The override inputs can be switched to parallel outputs by setting internal jumpers, and the main stereo input can be mono'd with a rear panel switch.

There are four headphone distribution amplifiers in the Sonifex Redbox range: The RB-HD1 is a 1U stereo headphone amplifier for driving up to two pairs of headphones with wired remote options for the output volume and switching to a secondary mono mix input. The RB-HD2 is a two-way headphone distribution amplifier for driving up to two pairs of headphones from a single stereo or mono input, with preset level control of input signal and separate output level control. The RB-DHD6 is a digital six-way headphone distribution amplifier with a digital input (AES or S/PDIF) and 6 individually buffered headphone outputs with their own volume controls.

CEDAR ensures clear sound at Singapore's New Creation Church

When you're preaching to upward of 35,000 attendees per week, there's lots of potential for noise and other audio problems in the FOH sound, live broadcasts and recordings. So the New Creation Church in Singapore has turned to two CEDAR devices to ensure intelligibility and provide clean audio in real-time.

With more than ten years of experience, the head of audio for the New Creation Church is Isaac E., who's responsible for all live sound, recording and audio post, and he manages both the church's live and on-line delivery. He told us, "During the services, we use omni headset microphones for preaching because we feel that they give us a better result and don't have the proximity issues that are associated with directional headset mics. But omnis pick up a lot of noise, especially with a live audience in the room. To help with this, we run the audio from the mic receivers through a pair of CEDAR DNS 8 Lives before it reaches the consoles and the usual processing that you would expect such as compression, de-essing and EQ. This works great for the live sound, as well as for our broadcast and recording audio guys who have cleaner source channels to work with."

"When we're on tour or recording on location and we want to travel light we use a CEDAR DNS 2 for our pastor's headset mic. This keeps our audio guys happy, not least because it's so much easier to travel with the DNS 2 than the DNS 8 Lives. We use an insert and return on one of the consoles and send that channel to the rest of the consoles, which means that we get a DNS channel but still have a raw audio channel as a backup. The DNS 2 also allows us to produce high-quality location recordings without background noise."

"We decided to have this level of processing in view of our team's desire to deliver quality broadcast content that is free from distraction, and we found CEDAR's noise suppression to be quick and adaptive without damaging the audio. It's especially useful when we're in a live setting where the audio can't be fixed in post, and our FOH guys also found that the DNSs allow them to use more gain before feedback."

Isaac concluded, "If anyone is wondering, this is not a sponsored segment. We purchased our CEDAR devices some years ago, and I'm just sharing our experience of using this technology to improve our audio presentations."

We would like to extend our thanks to Isaac for sharing his knowledge with us.

About CEDAR's unique DNS process
Noise is all around us: traffic, aircraft, the noise inside vehicles, air conditioning, wind, rain and other water noises, the noise from domestic appliances and even excessive reverberation. So CEDAR developed DNS to clean up noisy dialogue and to suppress ambient noise for live TV and radio broadcasting. Moreover, whereas other digital noise reduction systems add a significant delay to the audio that makes live sound use impossible, the latency through any of CEDAR's DNS products is less than 10 samples which is far too short for any issues of this nature.

DNS has won a string of awards including two Cinema Audio Society Awards and an Academy Award.

CEDAR Audio Ltd

PRODUCT ANNOUNCEMENT: Introducing CEDAR for Pyramix 64 v8

We are delighted to announce the immediate availability of CEDAR for Pyramix 64 v8 which, as well as offering improvements in other modules, delivers all of the benefits of the latest machine learning and AI capabilities of Retouch 8™ to the Pyramix platform.

CEDAR invented spectral editing but, not content to leave things as they were, we have continued to research ways to improve it, making it faster and easier to use, able to cure a more extensive range of problems, as well as making it even more productive in a wider range of settings.

For example, there are many occasions when you will encounter similar instances of unwanted sounds in a track - things such as hi-hat spill, over-excited sibilants and plosives, or even the repetitive noise caused by a piece of machinery. Until now, one would remove these by identifying each event individually and then defining it manually, but today you can mark one of the offending sounds and then ask the machine learning algorithm in Retouch 8 to find all of the other instances within the recording. You can then eliminate them individually or as a group using the appropriate Retouch tool. The increase in productivity is absolutely remarkable. In addition to this, the AI in the new Repair tool can identify, suppress, or reveal sounds while leaving the background in a marked region untouched. Unlike other spectral editing tools, only the significant signal within the region is processed; all low level signals as well as the ambience are left unaffected.

Availability and pricing
CEDAR for Pyramix 64 v8 is available immediately. Pricing is available from CEDAR or your local Merging Technologies offices and dealers, as are details about upgrading from previous versions of CEDAR for Pyramix.

About CEDAR for Pyramix
CEDAR Audio's partnership with Merging Technologies stretches back to the earliest Pyramix systems in the 1990s, when CEDAR developed their first broadband noise reduction system. Today, CEDAR for Pyramix is derived from CEDAR's multi-award-winning CEDAR Studio™ and CEDAR Cambridge™ flagships, allowing users to eliminate problems and significantly improve the quality of their audio. It provides unsurpassed results, quickly, and with the minimum of fuss and user intervention.
