Ionizer 1.3 is an unusually helpful audio editing plugin for most VST compatible audio editing programs like Peak, Cubase, or the HyperEngine contained in this CD (no license required for the version here ), that allows one to analyze the EQ curves of one recording and apply them to another and to reduce tape hiss.

Frequency Morphing enables you to map the spectral profile from any recording (or any sound) onto any other piece of audio. Do you like the equalization of one song? Alter any other song to have similar characteristics.

Ionizer is also a much more effective tool for reducing recording tape hiss than Ray Gun (included) or the CD Spin Doctor that comes with Toast, giving less flanging distortion. You select a "silent" portion of the recording, or use the Noise Button to have Ionizer make an "educated guess" about where the noise is. The resulting frequency analysis is then turned into software sliders of a 512 band equalizer to reduce the amplitude at the needed frequencies. The Automatic Tracking function will ride the noise level in your signal so that Ionizer thresholds will be raised and lowered to match the changing amplitude of the noise signature, resulting in much smoother, more pleasing results.

Try again please. You were probably locked out temporarily when I was editing the title. That is, if someone is making changes to a page at the same time (but gets in before you) then you won't be able to save any changes at that time. It should be OK once any changes have been saved.

This is not for sale any more. I was in the process of editing it when I was blocked from making changes ("This content has been modified by another user, changes cannot be saved."). How do I get it unblocked? If you don't want me to upload an updated 4.5 version of
macintoshgarden.org_apps_arboretum-30-raygun-ionizer-and-hyperprism just let me know.

We are not a format for advertising products for vendors. It is OK give a purchase link to a modern version of software when we have uploaded an old unsupported version here. But this is different. These are still sold and presumably supported, despite their age.

This page is looking a bit on the spammy side. Could do with screenshots of actual apps if it's allowed to stay.

[Edit] The updated page is looking really very different & nice now. Thank you, word5.1addict
