Software Compatibility

You'll need an iLok copy protection device in order to use this software. If you already have one, you're good to go. If you don't, you can buy one here. An iLok is a small USB gadget (about the size of a thumb drive) that plugs into your computer. It "unlocks" the software, allowing you to use it.

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Everything You Need for Better-sounding Dialog!

NOTE: This product requires an iLok (not included) for authorization. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

People call Sweetwater all of the time looking for plug-ins to help them polish their voiceover work, which is why we're proud to offer the WaveArts Dialog plug-in. Unlike many of the channel strip plug-ins you'll find at Sweetwater, Dialog was designed from the ground up for voice production. For starters, Dialog offers you several great ways to cut noise and problem frequencies out of your voice recordings, including filters, hum elimination, and broadband noise reduction. There's even a set of controls for correcting plosives and sibilance! Next you can add smooth and transparent dynamics control with the dedicated compressor section, whereas the 10-band parametric equalizer (complete with a pre/post compressor switch) makes tone tweaking with Dialog easy.

WaveArts Dialog Voice-production Plug-in Processor at a Glance:
  • Powerful noise-reduction tools anyone con operate
  • Smooth out dialog with killer onboard dynamics control
  • 10-band EQ with 11 filter types offers infinite tone options
Powerful noise-reduction tools anyone con operate

Before you can use the mighty power of the WaveArts Dialog plug-in to enhance the sound of your vocal track, you're going to want to pull out all of the unwanted noise you can. Luckily, WaveArts built a whole bunch of cool noise-reduction algorithms right into Dialog. For starters, you can cut out problems in the frequency ranges above and below your vocal track altogether with Dialog's dedicated highpass and lowpass brickwall filters. A multi-mode de-hum section with hum and buzz settings takes care of most sound issues caused by bad power, and a broadband noise-reduction system lets you zero in on hiss and thermal noise. Follow that up with dedicated plosive and sibilance correction processors, and you're left with clear voice tracks every time.

Smooth out dialog with killer onboard dynamics control

Now that you've dealt with any noise issues, it's safe to boost up the rest of your sound with a touch of compression. By combining excellent metering with easy-to-use compression controls, the WaveArts Dialog plug-in makes smoothing out your voice track's dynamics easy. What's more, Dialog includes a handy peak limiter, so you can compress for effect and still protect your mix from runaway transients.

10-band EQ with 11 filter types offers infinite tone options

To give you all of the tone-shaping control you could ask for WaveArts included a full 10-band fully parametric equalizer in Dialog's bag of tricks. You can activate only the bands you wish, and with 11-excellent filter types to choose from (as well as a handy graphic display) it's easy to make broad-strokes changes or horn in on problem frequencies with the Dialog EQ and still have bandwidth to spare.

  • An all-in-one channel-strip plug-in for producing polished voice tracks
  • A must-have plug-in for voiceover-production engineers
  • Brickwall highpass and lowpass filters let you carve off problem frequencies right from the beginning
