Best dialog audio noise reduction? IDC: Instant Dialogue Cleaner could be the one...

Recommended Posts

Hi,

If you are like me - audio noise bothers me to no end.  I am always on the look out for a better audio noise reduction solution.

Enter IDC - Instant Dialog Cleaner.  It is the best I have found so far for dialogue noise reduction.  It beats Izotope RX6 advanced IMHO.  I have not compared it against RX7 Advanced.  Anyways,  it is worth considering, while it is 50% off until Nov 25th for Black Friday. At $99 it not cheap but much cheaper than RX Advance, which has their dialogue isolate plug-in

This plug-in is not compatible with Resolve 15.2  as you get distortion ( clicks and pops) when render your video.  They are aware of this issue. They have a compatibly list here:

Here’s a review with audio examples.  There is no demo.

Used RX6 noise reduction quite a bit and have been impressed, although when it fails it really stinks. Wish this had a demo version but will keep an eye out in case the devs have a change of heart.

I believe I found an even better dialog denoiser for stereo audio:  ERA-D.

I just tried and purchased the ERA Bundle Pro at $199 on Accusonus' End of the Year Sale. I purchased the Pro because I needed the ERA-D for dialog noise removal.

Things that set ERA-D apart:

1. It combines Noise Removal and Reverb Removal, which gives the processed sound greater intelligibility as compared to just removing noise.
2. It includes 2 instances of Noise Removal and and 2 instances of Reverb Removal in the same plugin, which creates a sum is greater that its parts scenario, allowing me to deal with really intense background noise, which I have not found possible to make sound natural with a single plugin instance.
3. The advance setting let's me make artifacts have minimal impact on the sound.
4. The multi-band approach let's me remove more noise in the non-voice frequency ranges, leaving the voice frequency range less processed, if I so choose.
5. Absolutely great with stereo audio sources, which is not something I have found an equal to with any other noise reduction plugin. I am using an M/S shot gum Mic in stereo mode and this has been the only noise reduction plugin that I have found that can truly handle this type of content.

ERA-D made me realized that even if I can't get rid of the noise completely without artifacts, I can get ride of enough of it and shape the remaining noise in a natural non-distracting way, kind of the way Dolby SR sounds like a record, ERA-D sounds like a movie. I use Gullfoss following the ERA-D to bring back any life that was lost with ERA-D, which is less than other noise removal plugins.

It's worth trying the demo if your are looking to de-noise dialog from stereo content. For mono content or less extreme noise reduction requirements, you may not hear as much of a difference between the different options.
