Undamage Your Audio!

Zynaptiq Unfilter plug-in is your quick and freakishly effective fix to all issues filter related in your audio. Whether you're trying to restore a file that's been poorly recorded or buff out a bad EQ job tragically committed to your audio, Unfilter ready to come to your rescue. Without getting too technical, Unfilter scans your audio for damage and applies convolution (the same process use in high-end reverb engines) in reverse to fill in the gaps. That may sound strange in writing, but it sounds amazing in practice. And even with its extensive EQ capability, Zynaptiq Unfilter plug-in is extremely easy to use.

Zynaptiq Unfilter Audio Restoration and Mastering Plug-in at a Glance:
  • Undo the damage of overprocessing and awful acoustics
  • Generate realistic room tones out of simple pink noise
  • Amazing onboard EQ lets you add polish to your sound
Undo the damage of overprocessing and awful acoustics

When you hear Zynaptiq Unfilter in action for the first time, you'll hardly believe your ears. This magic bullet can perform the most amazing feats of sonic restoration you're likely to hear. Whether it's a deliberate highpass filter that got out of hand, natural comb filtering caused by poor acoustic conditions, or the frequency limitations of old recording equipment, Unfilter will automatically detect the filtering and provide you with a few simple controls you can use to restore your audio.

Generate realistic room tones out of simple pink noise

To understand some of Unfilter's cooler functions, you'll have to be familiar with how it works. Even when you filter out audio, the audio you've filter still exists, just at a much lower volume. Zynaptiq Unfilter scans your audio and creates a sound profile it uses to identify what the original audio must have sounded like. You can then apply this same audio profile to random signal (pink noise) and create natural room tone from background noise. This makes filling the gaps in ADR and dialog editing extremely natural.

Amazing onboard EQ lets you add polish to your sound

It's easy to imagine that the powerful sound-shaping engine Zynaptiq developed for Unfilter could just as easily be used as an equalizer as a restoration tool. Rather than wast such a splendid opportunity, Zynaptiq gave their Unfilter plug-in a trio of mastering-grade EQs plus a fantastic 96dB/octave highpass filter. The Unfiltering engine itself can function as an adaptive program equalizer that continuously adjusts. Next, there's a freeform EQ that includes a variety of curves ranging from smooth and subtle to hard notches and other extreme slopes. Finally, Unfilter includes an easy-to-access 7-band graphic EQ for making quick adjustments.

Zynaptiq Unfilter Audio Restoration and Mastering Plug-in Features:
  • A mind-blowing audio restoration plug-in that automatically detect and remove resonances, equalization, roll-offs and the effects of comb filtering
  • Ideal for music, location, dialog, and surveillance recording restoration
  • Apply the measured filter response to other signals to place them in the same acoustic environment
  • Export the measured filter response to or import it from a linear- or minimum-phase impulse response file (WAV)
  • Mastering-grade adaptive, free-form, and graphic equalization onboard
  • Extremely steep 96dB/octave shelving highpass filter lets you cut out low-frequency information
  • Output limiter for unsupervised use in batch processing applications
  • Built around a highly time-efficient workflow and extremely user-friendly UI
  • Formatted for AAX Native, VST, AU, and RTAS plug-in hosts

Black Magic!!

This may be the first plug-in review I've ever written, so needless to say I am completely blown away by this plug-in. It's truly in a completely different league of digital processing. The video is not exaggerating, this thing really can make magic out of utter garbage. In addition to repair work, I often find myself using it in music production to bring out extra details in my recordings & samples, which is quite inspiring. The fact that it can do this in real-time puts it, in my opinion, at least the same league as iZotope and... not many others.

mastering industry has changed since the popularity in project studios has risen. unfilter is indispensable for repairing otherwise "un-repairable" files. ive been given lifeless, flat files with no high end above 14k. unfilter has been able to resurrect the high frequency content and does so with no to very little artifacts. at least for me... its changed the way i am able work. its expanded the scope of what is possible in the mastering stage. great tool.
