Repair and denoise plugins
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-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.
Even when using the best mics, pre-amps and converters, sibilance in vocal recordings can easily get over-accentuated during post-processing like compression or saturation. But don’t worry, FabFilter Pro-DS comes to the rescue!
With its highly intelligent ‘Single Vocal’ detection algorithm, FabFilter Pro-DS accurately identifies sibilance in vocal recordings and attenuates it transparently.
When using the ‘Allround’ mode, Pro-DS becomes a great tool for high-frequency limiting of any material, like drums or even full mixes. Try it out yourself!
FabFilter Pro-DS offers everything you need to get the best result possible, presented in a simple and easy-to-use interface. Wide band or linear-phase split band processing, an optional look-ahead of up to 15 ms, adjustable stereo linking with optional mid-only or side-only processing, up to four times linear-phase oversampling… it’s all there.

There are many great independent sound effect libraries available these days. The main problem with having so many, is keeping track of them!
A Sound Effect is a great hub, and is one of the first places I visit to look for sounds by category or genre. I started coming here to see if I could find libraries that I knew I had heard, but forgot WHERE I had heard them.
And in the process discovered libraries I never would have found otherwise. Great work! Keep it up!
We're always looking for new sounds to mangle, so when A Sound Effect had a holiday sale, I tried them out.
The purchase experience is really smooth and quick, and delivery is almost instant.
I'll definitely come back to them again in the future!
A Sound Effect is a wonderful resource for indie sound effects libraries. On top of that, it has some of the finest sound design, film and game audio interviews!
