Good restauration (decrackler, denoiser,) VST

before i used the restauration plugins on my tc powercore card, which i found very good; but i sold my tc card i while ago (regret it a bit because a liked a lot of stuff of tc!)

i now have a deesser, but I'm looking for a good decrackler, declicker and denoiser vst.

Any suggestions?

Izotope RX (industry standard I would say, very comprehensive suite) and Sonnox Restore Collection (recently introduced new version is on sale now) first comes to my mind..
Otherwise Acon Digital Restore Suite has very good price/value ratio.. Restoration Suite | Noise Reduction Plug-ins

hi,
Hi Michal!
thanks for your tips!

yes i was looking into the izotope stuff, but i'm under the impression the basic version does not have many options, and the advanced verson is very expensive...

sonnox stuff is also very nice, had a lot of stuff of sonnox on my powercore card

the acon stuff seems a lot more reasonable priced, i dont need a lot of options anyway (declick clip and crack is enough, maybe denoiser)

any other tips?

Hmm.. I don't know much of other restore plugins, which are at same quality and flexibility level as mentioned.
There is also Z and X-Noise by Waves, but in my comparison, which I did several years ago, it wasn't so good. But YMMV of course.
Also there is Cedar and Algorithmix, excellent products, but both are very very expensive (Cedar suite is 10K for ProTools.. Algorithmix with all of its modules is about the same. So it can be sustainable maybe for someone, doing hi-end restore projects or some regular restore work for state archive, radio etc.).

At your place, I would proceed trial with own material, some free time and all mentioned suites - RX, Acon and Sonnox Restore (this requires an iLok for demo).
I haven't tried latest Sonnox and don't know, if they updated also algorithms besides new UI and platform support, but with broadband noise removal I preferred the RX. I don't say, Sonnox is bad, it was quicker for operation (personal thing) and more efficient to run, but bit more obvious with its reduction.. Of course all depends on material, required noise attenuation and particular tweaking.
RX is also excellent choice for manual de-clipping or "incident" removal, because of its offline spectral editing.

cedar noise reduction plugins.
among the best on the market.
expensive and work only with sadie software though.
we used that on a mastering studio i used to work, they are top notch.
if restoration is your thing think about it.

The Acon Restoration suite is very good for the money. I picked it up earlier this summer to restore some old 78s for a friend. I rarely do restoration work, so i didn't want to spring for the Sonnox. But i'm happy with it.

Though expensive, the Waves restoration kit is fantastic. It was on sale a few months ago.

I like the waves bundle too.
They seem to have sales every week so perhaps can get cheap.
Also there is a new one called Era D, by plugin alliance which is out now.
Not tried it yet though.

If you have adobe audition. That one has a great set of restauratino tools comparable to Izotopes RX3.

If on another DAW, I love RX3.

+1 for Adobe. Audition 3 still does the job for me.

hi,

I bought the acon suite, loving it so far! No complaints, seems to do everything I want for a reasonable price!

Audition is nice, but i like everything being together in cubase like with acon.No need to change programs like this.

Cheers!
