Acon Digital Media Announces Acoustica Premium 4 with Support for Multichannel Audio
Posted Jul 16, 2007

Acon Digital Media, a leading provider of audio software applications, today 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 precise 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 tightly integrated in Acoustica Premium 4, thus 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 originating 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.

Acoustica Premium 4 is available for $119.90 (USD) as electronic delivery on the Acon Digital Media web site (http://www.acondigital.com). There is also a free 30- day trial available.
