McDSP NR800 Noise Reduction Processor
Posted on: Tuesday 7th of August 2018
The NR800 is a real-time noise reduction processor, useful for music production, post production, and live sound. The NR800 operates on mostly broadband frequencies, but can also be focused in a narrow portion of the frequency spectrum using noise reduction focus points. A set of input filters and be configured with slopes up to 36 dB/Oct, and can be set at frequencies independent of noise reduction focus points.
Several noise reduction modes can be selected from the NR Mode control to provide a range of smooth to aggressive noise reduction amounts. A Range control can be used to scale the overall noise reduction from 100% to 0% (off). An ‘x2’ mode doubles the noise reduction amounts in all bands, when less finely tuned adjustment is needed, or when noise problems are severe. The Response time controls how fast the noise reduction recovers from a ‘noise event’. An NR Bias selector allows different noise reduction amounts to be activated when ‘snapping’ the noise reduction gain and thresholds to the input signal.
Each of the 8 bands in the NR800 has a noise reduction amount fader and noise detection threshold marker, and the usual McDSP linking control capabilities from a master (M) and linked (L) control button paradigm. Each band may also be individually bypassed or soloed to audition incoming noise amounts.
– HPF and LPF pre-filtering
– Eight bands of focusable noise reduction
– Noise reductions modes and noise reduction bias
– Snap Gain and Snap Threshold for fast setup
– Overall noise reduction range and response control
The NR800 can work on anything, but is an ideal tool for cleaning up dialogue, removing noise contamination from field recordings, minimizing microphone and headphone bleed, and audio restoration.
The NR800 HD supports AAX DSP/Native, AU, and VST while the NR800 Native supports AAX Native, AU and VST. The NR800 is available at an introductory rate of $99 Native $149 HD for a limited-time only. The NR800 is available to all current Everything Pack v6 customers and All Access subscribers, simply download the latest installer.
