We’re now proud to announce DC Forensics 10 This powerful Forensics software product has all of the power previous versions of DC LIVE/Forensics but with some major new features! You’ll still have the best odds on the planet of pulling a voice out of the recording muck.
Explore rich editing options
You can add markers and labels, change the gain of highlighted areas, apply a fade in and out effect, or edit the Wave header when it comes to the format tag, sample rate, number of channels, bit depth, block alignment, and average bytes/second.
The software application also lets you change the file’s sample rate, resolution, conversion quality and dithering mode, start a recording based on the time of day, create test signal wave files, convert a stereo file into two mono files or vice versa, as well as import and export presets to share with other users (e.g. averaging, bandpass, blender, compressor, continuous noise, declipper, dynamics, echo, enhancer).
A wide range of filters, effects and forensic tools
A batch file editor lets you run a filter on multiple files at once, such as auto-leveling or big click. What’s more, you can clean up a track by adjusting the scratch, crackle, hiss and humming levels, create a multi-filter from individual filters, manage virtual photo preamp settings, run DirectX plugins, as well as remove clicks, pops, large clicks, harmonically rich noise, and selected frequencies.
As far as effects are concerned, you can add realistic reverb and punch, adjust multi-tap echo and tone controls (level, exciter, bass, mids, treble), simulate tube sounds through a virtual valve amplifier, tweak a dynamics processor, expander and noise gate, make the track play backwards, combine the left and right channels, increase or decrease speed, change the time and pitch, and so on.
Forensic tools include lowpass, highpass, bandpass and bandstop filters with very sharp edges, a spectrogram viewer with frequency versus time, along with a declipper for removing clips from distorted files.
It’s possible to quantize tracks for audio CDs, chop files into pieces, find and mark silent passages, normalize gain to 0dB, perform gain normalization with scaling, burn audio CDs or data discs, as well as rip tracks from audio CDs.
Evaluation and conclusion
No error dialogs popped up in our tests, and the app didn’t hang or crash. It used low CPU and low-to-moderate RAM but it sometimes carried out simple tasks slowly, like changing the main window’s position on the screen.
Taking everything into account, Diamond Cut Forensics Audio Laboratory proves to be a reliable and resourceful application for analyzing, restoring and enhancing audio tracks, and it should meet the requirements of most experienced users.
Free 1 Year Tech Support!
VST Hosting (VST Plug-in Support) Added It’s finally here! No you can incorporate dozens of filters made by other companies directly DC Forensic 10. The can be used like other DC filters, and they can even be used in the multifilter!
Forensics Audio Whisper Enhancer Filter added (including 15 factory presets)This is much more than a tricked out expander. The new Whisper Enhancer takes a completely novel approach to digging out these quiet signals that drive you crazy. It’s especially useful for otherwise decent quality recordings that have not suffered from several rounds of aggressive compression.
Subsonic Explorer This new tool presents the operator with a clear indication of energy at 30Hz and below and allow him or her to correlate its presence to the time domain waveform. This can be very useful in certain authenticity studies, especially ones that invoice analog edits.
Added a Forensics Histogram Comparator
Forensics Auto Silence Chop-Out function This is great for those hours long surveillance recordings where 90% of it is silence. With this new tool, you just define the level of sound you want to keep and the program automatically marks all those silent passages. It will remove them too and product a CSV file with the exact spots the silence was removed.
Spectral Frequency Tracking to aid in Audio Authentication
Low Frequency Shelf option added to the Paragraphic EQ
