Offenburg University’s Media and Information Faculty has adopted the CEDAR DNS One to educate students on its training courses. Markus Moser is sound technician, dialogue engineer and technical manager; and responsible for the faculty’s equipment list. He says that the DNS One is the standard for noise suppression in film and post-production; and that it’s vital that his students get to work with industry standard tools that they will encounter in their working life. Experienced in the audio field having mixed audio for radio, CD and DVD, broadcast and cinema release, Moser says due to the pressure and speed of video production today, it can be impossible to optimise original dialogue recordings, and that other denoising solutions were proving time consuming and were rarely successful. Using the DNS One, results improved immediately. “It is extremely intuitive and offers very efficient performance for dialogue treatment,” explains Moser. “Our first experiences showed that processing audio using CEDAR’s DNS process is much more effective, as well as free from artefacts.” Moser believes that the DNS One is practical and highly applicable to the training on offer at Offenburg, whose main studio features a Pro Tools HD3 system and D-Command console. “With the appearance of DNS as a Pro Tools plug-in, it now offers multiple instances and full automation for complex mixes,” adds Moser. “But its efficiency means it can offer all this without overloading the host processors.” www.cedaraudio.com
