About CEDAR's Dialogue Noise Suppressors

The DNS1000 Dynamic Noise Suppressor is a free-standing unit designed for audio post, live broadcast, and forensic audio. The DNS2000 is a fully automated implementation designed specifically for Pro Tools users. Connected to Pro Tools using a USB cable, Pro Tools provides the control and automation for the process, while the DNS2000 rackmount processor provides the DSP power and the 24-bit I/O for the system.

Both the DNS1000 and DNS2000 are ideal for eliminating traffic noise, aircraft, air conditioning, wind, rain, tape hiss, and general background from recordings and live transmissions.
