Never before audio repair has been that easy and effective!
easyNOVA™ removes unwanted audio incidents and replaces the
vacancy with re-synthesized audio, intelligently created from surrounding
context without affecting original audio in an audible manner.
The whole process is high-resolution and linear-phase, thus extremely
Try to remove a feedback whistle occurring during a gentle violin

With easyNOVA™, it takes a few seconds and the result is
What is it?
Denoising techniques work well for stationary or quasi-stationary broadband
noise. Short clicks coming from old records or switching noise can be
successfully removed and replaced by declicker plug-in. However, neither
a denoiser nor a declicker can successfully cope with longer complex
audio disturbances, especially if they overlap material we want to recover.
This fact has motivated us to develop a special tool, reNOVAtor™
and later its brother, easyNOVA™
, especially optimized for time-effective
is intended to rescue high-resolution live or location
recordings from extraneous sounds and unwanted audio disturbances. Often,
from the performance point of view, brilliant live recordings can not
be accepted for CD release, because of disturbing noises like coughs,
squeaky chairs, feedback squeals, horn of a passing truck, a bell from
the neighboring tower, or ring tones from a cellular phone. Such disturbances
are especially critical if they occur in quiet passages when recording
classical music. Similarly, location recordings film, broadcast or TV
often include annoying incidents which disqualify them to be used as
originally intended. In these cases any kind of traditional equalization
or editing methods is very time consuming and causes audible discontinuities
in desired signal and ambience. Often after hours of hard work even
the best post-pro engineer will capitulate.
How does it work?
helps when all other editing tricks and processing
methods fail. It allows localization, identification and very precise
removal of unwanted audio events mostly without audibly affecting the
audio material we want to keep. The removed sound is replaced by a signal
re-synthesized from the surrounding material. Unlike time editing methods,
does not make deep gaps in the sound track when eradicating
a disturbing sound event. Rather, it’s an exactly tailored hole in the
spectral representation of the processed signal that can be removed
easyNOVA™ or reNOVAtor™?
is optimized for very time-effective workflow and therefore
equipped with well prepared preset-like controls. It’s ideal for post-pro
broadcast, TV and film engineers working under extreme time pressure.
When you deal with extremely tenacious disturbances or you just want
to broaden your abilities and increase performance in cleaning audio
material do upgrade to reNOVAtor™
that features extended manual
parameter setup and some additional advanced functions.
