  • Diamond Cut Forensics8 Audio Laboratory Introduced

    We have just introduced the latest Diamond Cut Forensics Laboratory, version 8. Here are the details:

    Diamond Cut Forensics8 Audio Laboratory contains a large number of new features, improvements and enhancements that will make it a "must have" tool for any forensics lab. Here are some of the highlights:

    New Auto Voice Tool - This is a Major new tool. It has two independent math processes that adapt in real time. One finds noise and the other finds human speech. These are then separated. This is a tool you should try first with any voice recording as it's so quick and easy.

    New Cell Phone Noise Filter - This new tool allows you to "teach" the program what a cell impulse looks like. It'll then search out those impulses and remove them and replace the pulse with interpolated good audio. You'll find this is useful on a wide variety of cell noises that are picked up by nearby recorders.

    Direct Spectral Editing is now available - This will allow frequency domain edits or interpolate functions. Not only can an area be attenuated right on the spectrogram display, but an area can also be augmented so as to be heard better.

    New Spectrogram Functionality - The tool has many enhancements but retains its super high resolution and fast speed. You can even scroll the spectrogram while playing audio. This is now a great tool to do authenticity studies.

    New DeClipper tool - Now includes two methods for the repair of clipped and distorted signals. One has an adjustable strength and the other uses a method of frequency domain interpolation. The result is that much more distortion is removed from a clipped signal.

    New Voice ID Function - Uses industry standard approach to allow you to see and rank the speech formants of a selected word, syllable or other speech. It also shows a frequency response plot and a Cepstrum graph. It provides the tools necessary for an expert analysis of speech characteristics.

    New Overtone And Sub-Harmonic Synthesizer - Allows the operator to add some "fidelity" into muffled or otherwise hard to understand speech.
    New support for Flac, Ogg Vorbis and Broadcast Wave audio file formats.

    Voice Garbler - This tool disguises a human voice making it unrecognizable as to person and the process used in non-reversible providing security sometimes needed in Forensics audio where a person needs to remain covert.

    Documentation - Spiral Bound, 570 Page Printed Users Guide and comprehensive Help File
