The most powerful noise suppression and audio restoration plug-ins for the PC

30 May 2022

  Introducing CEDAR Studio 9 for PC

Previously available only on the Mac, we are excited to announce the immediate availability of CEDAR Studio 9 for the PC.

This is the latest version of our multi-award winning audio processing and restoration suite for AAX Native, VST2, VST3 and AU formats, and it includes the latest version of Retouch™ with its machine-learning Matching and AI-driven Repair capabilities.

New, easier iLok authorisation

Until now, CEDAR Studio on the PC has been licensed using the CEDAR HSP dongle. Today, we're delighted to reveal that CEDAR Studio 9 is now iLok compatible on the PC as well as the Mac. This means that it's quicker and easier for you to test and purchase processes, getting you up and running much faster than ever before.

    CEDAR Studio 9 Retouch

    CEDAR invented spectral editing, changed the face of the audio industry by introducing it to the world, and still holds the patents to it. But not content to leave things as they were, we have continued to research ways to make Retouch™ faster and easier to use, able to cure an even wider range of problems, as well as making it even more productive. It remains the most effective way to deal with otherwise intractable audio problems.

    CEDAR Studio 9 Complete

    Containing all eleven processes from the other CEDAR Studio 9 packages, CEDAR Studio 9 Complete is the unsurpassed plug-in suite for noise suppression and restoration.

Host environments

CEDAR Studio 9 for PC is compatible with AAX Native on Pro Tools v11 onward, as well as VST2, VST3 and AU. Retouch is also supplied as a standalone application.

Note: Since VST and AU are streaming environments, Manual Declick and Dethump are available for AAX only.


CEDAR Studio 9 for PC is available now!


CEDAR Studio 9 for the PC is not compatible with our previous HSP dongle and can only be licensed using an iLok. There is no charge for transferring from an existing HSP licence to an iLok licence if no new processes are added. Please contact to arrange this.
