Making its European debut is the new DNS 2 dialogue noise suppressor, designed for location sound. Cedar Audio said it can be used to clean noisy audio or to judge whether recordings are going to be good enough to be cleaned successfully in post, thus avoiding time-consuming and expensive ADR.
The DNS 2 can also be used for live broadcast, where its small size, analogue and digital connectivity (the former with high quality mic preamps), 12V power and camera mounting points make it useful for jobs where speed, portability and convenience are paramount.
The DNS 8 live dialogue noise suppressor, which is already established in broadcast and live sound, is also on show. Offering eight channels of noise suppression, this 1U rackmount is quick and simple to operate, said the company.
