NoiseWorks Audio Releases GainAimPro Vocal Editing Plugin (40% OFF)

0

NoiseWorks Audio releases GainAimPro, an AI and ARA-powered vocal editing plugin for macOS and Windows.

GainAimPro is an all-in-one editing solution for dialogue and vocals. The plugin has five core features, which are:

  • Gain riding
  • Lufs-leveling
  • De-essing
  • Breath detection
  • Smart Gate

The features above are nothing new, but NoiseWorks Audio believes this plugin does it better than the competition. Of course, combining the above in a single plugin makes GainAimPro seem like an attractive alternative to what can become several tedious processes.

GainAimPro works in three modes:

  • ARA: PreSonus and Celemony developed Audio Random Access (ARA) in 2011 to allow plugins to access pitch, tempo information, etc., for an entire track rather than a shorter snippet.
  • Audio Suite: For users of ProTools AudioSuite.
  • Transfer Mode: You can directly record a section of your audio clip into the plugin.

Although GainAimPro is ARA-powered, it’s unnecessary, so don’t worry if your DAW doesn’t support ARA. It shouldn’t be an issue, as most popular DAWs support ARA.

Whichever way you plan to use GainAimPro, NoiseWorks Audio has a handy video detailing different setup processes.

Once ready to start, hit the analyze button; GainAimPro will identify different elements of your audio (voice, breaths, sibilance, etc.) before applying automation based on default settings.

Once you’re ready to adjust settings, GainAimPro makes it as straightforward as possible.

Everything starts with the vocal rider, and the key component of this function is its infinite lookahead. NoiseWorks Audio aims to outperform the competition by eliminating some of the nasty side effects that often come with this sort of vocal processing.

In this case, the infinite lookahead allows GainAimPro to reduce the signal before the next loud part arrives, preventing any pumping artifacts common with vocal riders and compressors.

You can adjust the Target Loudness (LUFS-I) by dragging the bar up or down, and the Speed slider controls the intensity, setting how aggressively the gain rider adjusts the volume.

You can fine-tune your settings by changing the gain adjustment range, smoothing it, adding various filter types, and true peak limiting to avoid clipping.

The sibilance and Breath Detection functions work in the same way. Each provides controls for Relative Threshold (detection level), Range (reduction amount), and Transition Speed (reduction speed).

On the interface waveform, breaths are highlighted in dark grey, while sibilance is highlighted in lighter grey.

Small details in a plugin’s workflow are often the difference between love and hate, and GainAimPro makes every step quick and easy.

The AI-powered Vox-Gate is another function that aims to eliminate common problems caused by some other plugins. Specifically, AI technology separates voice activity and other signals, removing the need for an additional threshold.

GainAimPro ensures the gate always opens and closes at the right time, avoiding chopping the first or last syllables. You can fine-tune this function, too, by adjusting the fade-in/out durations.

GainAimPro is available at a special introductory price of $99 (40% off the original $169) using the code INTROSALE.
