Cedar Audio DNS3000 dialogue noise suppressor

For film production, dubbing, OB (remote), studio noise suppression, and audio forensic investigation with Pro Tools integration.

The DNS3000 is the latest generation of CEDAR's Dialogue Noise Suppression technology, combining the tactile control surface of the DNS1500 with the Pro Tools integration of the DNS One and DNS2000, plus much more. Additional features include on-board scenes with a simple and intuitive recall system, automation to LTC timecode, moving faders and sample rates up to 96kHz. As before, the hardware provides the processing power and audio I/O, and near-zero latency continues to ensure that there is no loss of lip-sync. With CEDAR's Academy Award® winning DNS algorithm at its core, the DNS3000 eliminates all manner of noises from recordings and live transmissions.

Seamless integration

The DNS3000 is an automated hardware implementation of our DNS technology. Connected to its Mac- or Windows- based Pro Tools host using an Ethernet cable, the DNS3000 processor provides the I/O for the system and will handle two independent channels simultaneously.

It offers a huge amount of floating-point power and performs all the audio processing in real-time, thus freeing up the host computer's CPU for other tasks.

DNS Control System (DNS CS)

The DNS3000 Control System (which replaced the original Remote Control Software in March 2010) is an RTAS plug-in that runs on Mac- and PC- based Pro Tools HD and LE, and M-Powered systems. It provides a fast and intuitive user-interface based on CEDAR's DNS1500 dynamic noise suppressor, itself a standard for post, dubbing and audio forensic applications. The software controls all aspects of the DNS3000, and automates its operating parameters. Furthermore, it is capable of driving up to 126 individual DNS3000 (and/or DNS2000) units, thus making it more than adequate for the largest studio and post installations. This makes the DNS3000 ideal for use in all studio environments, and especially in post-production for film, TV and video.
