Cedar’s new speed correction Respeed is designed to automatically identify – or allow the user to automatically identify - unwanted speed changes contained within audio. Once these changes are determined, the track can be processed much quicker than real-time. This allows for improved intelligibility and greater pitch stability, yet musical pitches such as vibrato and glissandos remain unaffected. Respeed eliminates the common speed errors in recordings upon playback such as faulty tape recorder transports, sticky tapes, and electrical problems in analogue recording devices. In all these cases, the replayed audio exhibits speed changes with respect to what would have been recorded or replayed had the fault not existed. Respeed has thee processing modes including an advanced mode that deals with a number of tracks without user intervention. A range of powerful tools are also provided, which allow the user to adapt the process for tracks containing speed errors. Respeed addresses random speed fluctuations and continuous rises or falls in speed caused by issues such as failing batteries in analogue recorders. It becomes available in Q2 this year through Cedar’s worldwide dealer network. www.cedar-audio.com
