DC Five was the most powerful audio restoration/enhancement/editing product on the market. DC Six has many new features. It's easier to use, faster, and more powerful.
NEW DC Six Features:
EZ Clean- One click noise reduction. Now, even the most inexperienced user can clean their treasured vinyl and tape recordings with one click of the mouse. DC SIX includes a powerful new automated system that seeks and destroys clicks, pops, hiss, hum and other disturbances common to older recordings.
CD Ripping-Now you can quickly and easily convert your audio CDs to Wave files or MP3 files using DC SIX's new CD Ripper. Just go to File/Open, choose your CD Rom drive and select any number of the files there to be transferred immediately to wave audio so you can work on them with DC SIX.
Speed To Burn- Turbo-charged algorithms in the Impulse Filter, the Continuous Noise Filter, the Brick Wall Filter and the Median filter. You should notice an improvement in the speed of the algorithms anywhere from 20-80%.
Direct X Support - Now you can use your favorite plug-ins within the DC SIX operating system. You can even use them in the DC SIX Multi-Filter.
Auto Leveling - Got a bunch of files of varying volumes that you'd like to make into a CD? No problem, just go into our Batch File editor and tell it to Auto Level these files. The Auto Leveler will raise the level or normalize all of the files so that your CD level will not fluctuate during playback.
Adaptive Filtering Added To Continuous Noise Filter - This intelligent filter adapts itself to the changing nature of the noise in your file. As it gets smarter, your noise disappears.
CD Database Integration - If you're working with CDs, DC SIX will instantly dial up the Internet CD Database and assign the names to all of your tracks before you rip them. This will save you the time of doing a Save As when you name the files.
No Time Limits - The wave file format has a 2 gigabyte limit. For those of you recording long radio shows or other events, this can be a real problem. Not with DC SIX. Though we can't fix the problem for Microsoft, we can find a nifty way of working around it. As we approach the limit, we simply stop the recording and open a second file. You get your whole recording...just split into several files.
AVI Audio Support - Many customers wanted the ability to open an AVI file and extract the audio for editing. Many customers will now be happy! You can play an AVI within DC SIX, you can select an area and extract the audio.
Multi-Codec Sensor Support - Now you can import and export to any Codec that's installed on your machine. These popular compression standards include: A-Law, Mu-Law, ADPCM and more.
FAT BASS - Using the new FAT BASS section of our Virtual Valve Tube Simulator, you can build up weak or inadequate bass lines in your favorite tunes and get those floors rattling again.
20-Band Graphic EQ Added - Another powerful and easy to use enhancement and noise reduction tool.
Echo Effect Added - The Echo Effect contains two independent delay lines, which can be used in a number of different modes providing it with a great deal of flexibility compared to the old analog systems. Because it performs its function utilizing digital techniques, it does not suffer from the noise and distortion buildup associated with the older analog systems.
DC SIX Also Includes:
Easy DeClick and DeCrackle - This process is not only much easier to manage, but it also finds and repairs a much wider range of clicks and pops.
Fast Multi-tiered Editor - This new mode of operation allows instant editing with each level saved in the Fast Edit History Window, so instant undo over numerous levels is easy.
Cut/Copy/Paste instantly…regardless of file length.
DeClipper - Very often, files will become “clipped” if the input on the sound card is turned up too high and the sound card is overloaded. The results are usually distortion and a waveform that is “flattened out” on top. The DeClipper helps remove this distortion and reform the waveforms.
Sample Rate Conversion - Quickly convert your files from one common sample rate and bit depth to another.
LIVE Feed through Mode - You don’t need to necessarily have your audio recorded to the hard drive to take advantage of the numerous features of SIX. Live mode allows you to run dirty audio in the inputs of your sound card, set up your numerous filters on the screen and have cleaned audio flow out the output of your sound card in real time.
Time Compression and Expansion (Stretch and Squish) - Now you can speed up or slow down the speed of an audio file and keep the pitch constant.
.cue Sheet Support for CD Burning - You can now generate a .cue sheet that is compatible with many of today's most popular CD burning programs.
Wave file to MP3 Conversion via popular encoders - Now, via the use of popular outboard encoders (Blade, Lame, Ogg Vorbis, Xing), you can quickly and easily convert any wave file to MP3 format from within the program.
Chebyshev response and 4th Order Slope added to Band Pass, High Pass, and Low Pass - These filters display relatively steep roll-off characteristics, but, unlike the Butterworth filters, have ripple in their pass-band.
Filter Sweeper - A novel new filter which allows the user to apply varying degrees of notch, high and low pass filters over time. This is perfect in situations where more filtering is needed at the beginning of a file.
De-Esser with Variable Frequency Control to Dynamics Processor - This special compression algorithm is tooled directly to remove hard “s” sounds that occur in older and poorly recorded files.
Pencil Wave Form Drawing - Now you can zoom to single sample resolution and manually draw out clicks and pops that show up as spikes in the waveform.
Timer Recording - Just like your VCR…you can set your software to begin recording at a certain time and end recording later. This can be set to be a one time recording or a daily recording.
Signal Triggered VOX Recording - You can now trigger the software to begin recording automatically when a user determined level of signal is sustained for a user determined length of time.
Distortion Analyzer - New to the Spectrum Analyzer…measures the THD (Total Harmonic Distortion) of any device.
Peak Hold Added to VU Meters - Newly designed VU meters more closely resemble a high end stereo system readout.
AIFF to wave file Converter - Simply open an AIFF file within the program and it’s instantly converted to a wave file. You can now easily work on your favorite Mac files and then export them back to their original format.
Export Playlists - Export your playlist in a standard text file so that it can be used by numerous label making and CD writing programs.
Print Waveforms or any Screen Shot - A simple Print Screen function has been added with notation capabilities.
Up to 192 kHz/24 bit Sampling Rate Support - Now all popular sample rates and depths are supported.
New Signal Generation Functions - White, Pink and Brown noise generators added.
New Windows WDM as well as MME Support - Will support virtually any sound card.
High Res Spectrum Analyzer Added - Now capable of resolving frequency increments as small as 0.02 Hz.
New P+C-based ALC - Ideal for speech processing…focus all 4 bands of Punch and Crunch on human speech frequencies.
