Encore! Concert Audiences is packed with vibrant cheers, applause, and walla to bring your concert crowds to life. The variation from small lounges to outdoor music festivals allows you to cover a multitude of projects. We wanted to put you “in the audience” with this library, so we got nice and close to all the emotion emanating from these crowds. In addition, there are plenty of distant perspectives to give you more general sounding crowds.
The post process:
Great care was put into the editing phase of this library in order to maintain clean heads and tails for many of the recordings. We seamlessly sewed together multiple takes for those perfect sounding effects. We also took the time to edit out any and all extraneous noises such as stage sounds, distracting audience voices, offensive nearby claps, and more. In order to maintain the greatest dynamics, these sounds were all mastered at theatrical monitoring levels, giving you the most options in post. Metadata has been thoroughly fleshed out for this library which makes searching for these sounds quick and easy, allowing more time for your creative process.

ERA De-Clipper is an easy to use audio effect plug-in that automatically detects and restores any clipped part of your audio, without compromising audio quality.
Audio clipping (or saturation) is the distortion that occurs when you set your input signal level far too high. It happens when your analog or digital recording equipment reaches its limits and your system cannot handle the dynamics of your input signal. Clipping results from over-saturation and usually sounds like a harsh distortion. When you look at the loud parts of your input waveform, you can see clippings as blocks of audio that are chopped off.
It’s always preferable to avoid clipping. But when you cannot re-record, the ERA De-Clipper will be your life-saver. The ERA De-Clipper restores saturated audio segments and improves the overall signal quality. Unlike any other De-Clipping software, the ERA De-Clipper is completely automatic. It detects and repairs the over-saturated audio segments. You just have to select between Mode 1 (for standard use) and Mode 2 (for trickier cases). Repair your clipped audio in seconds with the new ERA De-Clipper.
ERA De-Esser is an one-knob audio effect plug-in that offers precision-grade de-essing. It’s a knobrainer. Don’t let those sharp esses pierce your eardrums.
Harsh sibilance can be very annoying in both dialogue and vocal recordings. Getting rid of those noisy high-frequency consonants can be a complicated, time-consuming task. This is why we developed an easy-to-use, fast and powerful tool that requires minimum effort but offers great results.
The ERA De-Esser is the only single-knob plugin that allows you to smooth out audio problems caused by excessive sibilance consonants (such as “s”,”t”, “z”, “ch”, “j” and “sh”). Ease out sibilance and improve the quality of your audio with a single knob. The new De-Esser offers an improved UX with features such as: (i) a “Diff” button, (ii) a new elegant UI and (ii) a real-time processing display that allows you to visually monitor the plosive reduction in real-time.
When you need more control, the ERA De-Esser has three different modes that allow you to focus the plugin’s detection and processing to the problematic regions. When you have found a setting that works for your particular sibilance issue, you can use the Intense button to get some extra processing. There’s also a DIFF button that allows you to listen to what is being removed from your recording during processing.
ERA De-Esser Pro is a sophisticated, yet fast and easy to use audio effect plug-in that offers precision-grade de-essing.
ERA De-Esser Pro is a sophisticated, yet fast and easy to use de-essing plug-in. It offers precision-grade de-essing and customizable audio repair functionality. In most cases, all you’ll have to do is simply tweak the large white knob until those sharp and shrill esses are gone. But ERA De-Esser Pro offers some extra controls to give you the granularity you need to really dive in and fine-tune the settings for when you’re fixing up a really bad recording.

It’s a knobrainer. High-Quality Noise Removal in seconds.
Background noise is the most common problem in audio and video recordings. Use the ERA Noise Remover to easily reduce or completely remove unwanted background noise such as computer fans, air-conditioners, electric hum & hiss or other sonic artifacts.
The ERA Noise Remover is a multi-patented, single knob denoise plugin that allows you to clean up your noisy recordings faster and easier than ever. Get instant results with the turn of a simple dial. The new version has an improved noise processing engine, an updated elegant UI and a new button that optimizes detection for electric noises such as hum/buzz. For more in-depth noise suppression, we’ve added 5 buttons that allow you to focus processing on a specific part of the frequency spectrum. There’s also a hum/buzz button for more powerful processing in cases where there’s tonal-like noises such as hum and buzz. Hum can be caused by grounding issues, while buzz may be caused by a faulty cable.
ERA Plosive Remover is an one-knob audio effect plug-in that offers precision-grade removal of plosives. It’s a knobrainer. Diminish the effect of vocal pops by simply turning a knob.
Plosives (or p-pops) are caused by the mechanical impact of fast-moving air on the microphone capsule during voice recordings. This usually occurs due to non-ideal microphone placement. However, fixing these distracting artifacts can be a real pain and many times you’ll have to re-record. Unless, of course, you add the ERA Plosive Remover to your audio repair arsenal. Using only one knob, the ERA Plosive Remover instantly detects and fixes unnatural plosive thumps (such as “p”, “t” and “b”).
Based on the multi-patented accusonus algorithms, it allows for efficient processing without compromising audio quality. Under the main processing knob, there is a toggle button to fine-tune the processing applied by the plug-in. There are two processing modes available; “Normal” and “Extreme”. Whether you’re facing subtle pops or really intense plosives, using the appropriate mode will help you eliminate the problem. The new Plosive Remover offers an enhanced user experience by adding features such as: (i) a “Diff” button, (ii) a new elegant UI and (ii) a real-time processing display that allows you to visually monitor plosive reduction in real time.
ERA Reverb Remover is a multi-patented, single knob audio effect plugin that offer precision-grade dereverberation. It’s a knobrainer. High-Quality Reverb Removal in seconds.
Based on the accusonus multi-patented audio restoration technology, ERA Reverb Remover automatically estimates the reverberation profile and offers the means to adjust the reverberation amount with a single control. It’s the first ever single-knob plugin to quickly reduce excessive reverb and bring your sound into focus. Add clarity, clean up your dialogue or tighten up your musical performance simply by turning a knob.
For more control over reverb suppression, we’ve added 5 buttons that allow you to focus processing on a specific part of the frequency spectrum: (i) all-frequencies, (ii) high-frequencies, (iii) low-frequencies, (iv) high & low frequencies and (v) mid frequencies. With a new elegant UI and an automatic gain compensation, the new ERA Reverb Remover makes a previously impossible task as simple as it gets.
ERA Voice Leveler is a one-knob audio effect plug-in that automatically normalizes the volume levels of audio recordings. It’s a knobrainer. Even out distracting volume differences in your voice recordings instantly.
Gain inconsistencies are common in both audio and video recordings. They often happen as a result of unintentional speaker movement, non-ideal microphone positioning or heavy audio & video editing. Instead of spending hours on manual gain adjustments, use the new ERA Voice Leveler to normalize the volume levels of speech or dialogue recordings in seconds, without leaving your DAW or NLE environment. Are you a podcaster, videographer, vlogger, dialogue editor or post-production engineer? The ERA Voice Leveler will help you save time and you will be able to focus on the creative side of your work.
The ERA Voice Leveler, is a single knob tool that uses new patent-pending algorithms to automatically detect audio level problems in voice recordings and correct them in real-time. Apart from the “Normal” mode, the Voice Leveler also has a “Tight” mode that results in a more focused “radio” sound. This helps your dialogue tracks to stand out from the background music or effects. This is especially useful in cases such as audio and video ads, podcasts, vlogs, etc. In addition, the Voice Leveler features a unique “Emphasis” mode. This automatically detects problems in tonal balance of voice recordings. Such problems can for example happen when a speaker is not directly facing the microphone or has moved significantly from the mic between takes/scenes. When the “Emphasis” mode is engaged it allows you to apply subtle processing to compensate for those spectral disparities and ensure consistent tone and intelligibility.
ERA-D is a powerful tool for joint denoise and dereverberation for audio repair professionals
ERA-D is your only choice when you want to analyze and remove noise and reverberation at the same time. It features two suppression engines that can be used in mono, stereo or enhanced stereo mode. The denoise module is a fully adaptive processor (i.e. no need for noise-profiling), that yields impressive results in a wide range of cases. The dereverberation module is a state-of-the-art design, developed with transparency and efficiency in mind. The real meat though are the “joint” operation modes, where the two processing modules work in tandem, guided by a unified estimation model. On top of that, ERA-D offers great creative freedom, allowing the user to interact with the DSP engine in a multitude of meaningful ways.
