Cooperation announced between DSPECIALISTS and Minnetonka

DSPECIALISTS Digitale Audio- und Messsysteme GmbH announced a new processing module for AudioTools Server – a file-based audio automation platform for broadcasters.

DSPECIALISTS have developed a new dynamic control solution that achieves a reduction in the LRA criterion without producing audible artefacts. The algorithm combines multiple measurement layers from various time windows, and applies numerous infinitesimal gain corrections. In this way the LRA can be reduced without affecting the quality of the signal.
