Just a general roundup. What do you use, most of the times, sometimes, combinations? Anybody using hardware?

Cleanup, hopeless jobs, miracle enhancers.... from RX to Cedar and beyond..

@ Acon Digital Restoration Suite. Always. I mostly deal with vocal tracks (mouth clicks) and instrument tracks (noise, hiss, electromagnetic noise). It comes with AudioSuite which is a big plus.

Izotope RX and Izotope Ozone. I never use hardware; I don't see the point anymore.

Iztope RX has very quick and intuitive controls and the plugins are set up ready to work from the get go.

It also has excellent VST support.

Cedar Studio and NoNoise Complete (Manual DeClick II, Broadband DeNoise II, BBDN Native 3, along with Sonic Mastering EQ / Sonic EQ Global) remain the staple for audio clip based and multichannel audio workflows within soundBlade HD and Resolve Studio 14 (offline NoNoise Production DeCrackle runs within the standalone Sonic Studio Process application), along with Cedar hardware for real-time and standalone based workflows.

This year, Sonic Studio's Spectral Repair Tool was added (which is powered by Algorithmix DSP and further improved from reNOVAtor), along with Todd-Ao's Absentia DX batch processing tool, and Klevgränd's surprisingly useful Brusfri.

Here for the gear
 

The most novel thing I've ever used is Unfilter by Zynaptiq:

zynaptiq: UNFILTER

It's expensive but "Miracle Enhancer" is a great term for what it can do w/ some otherwise lost recordings. I find it works really well on music where the bass has been cut/lost. Acon's "defilter" is their response to this tool but while "defilter" is helpful it doesn't almost recreate lost aspects of the audio. I know Zynaptiq prides themselves on being one of a kind using custom algorithms etc.

I didn't find Zynaptiq's "Unveil" nor "Unchirp" as useful as I'd hoped (I prefer Acons deverb over Unveil and Unchirp didn't yield good results when I trialed it). That said Unfilter is unmatched imho.

After "Unfilter" restores the sound I'll usually tweak it beyond that w/ more conventional tools.

I agree — Unfilter is pure magic. Other than that, iZotope RX is my "go to."
