FIVE - 5 A New Ceiling For Audio Restoration
Diamond Cut Millennium, we offered the world's best audio restoration and enhancement
tools...still are today. So when we set out to improve this product, we set some
goals and met or exceeded each one. We wanted a faster product that was easier
to use , but also wanted new features that pushed the envelope for a product like
this. We also wanted to start dabbling in the audio editing market because there
are a whole lot of guys out there making too much money for the products they
provide. We'd basically like to eat their lunch. DC FIVE provides a digital fork
and knife for eating the lunch of those bloated expensive PC audio editors. We
think you'll like saving money.

FIVE Includes all of the features below. We'll explain the newest greatest things
and also print the laundry list of current features for your information.
Easy DeClick and DeCrackle - One of the most significant changes with DC5 has
been in the EZ DeClick and DeCrackle. Not only has this process been made much
easier to manage, it also finds and repairs a much wider range of clicks and pops.
Fast Multi-tiered Editor - A brand new operating Mode for FIVE. This new
mode of operation allows instant editing with each level saved in the Fast Edit
History Window, so instant undo over numerous levels is easy. Cut/Copy/Paste instantly
of file length.
DeClipper - Very often, files will become clipped
if the input on the sound card is turned up too high and the sound card is overloaded.
The results are usually distortion and a waveform that is flattened out
on top. The new DeClipper helps remove this distortion and reform the waveforms.
Sample Rate Conversion - Quickly convert your files from one common sample
rate and bit depth to another.
LIVE Feed through Mode -Now you dont
need to necessarily have your audio recorded to the hard drive to take advantage
of the numerous features of FIVE. Live mode allows you to run dirty audio in the
inputs of your sound card, set up your numerous filters on the screen and have
cleaned audio flow out the output of your sound card in real time.
Subtraction Filter In Continuous Noise - An amazing new feature within the Continuous
very helpful in situations where youre wading through
recordings that are loaded with lots of ambient noise.
Time Compression and Expansion (Stretch and Squish) - Now you can speed up or
slow down the speed of an audio file and keep the pitch constant.
Support for CD Burning - You can now generate a .cue sheet that is compatible
with many of today's most popular CD burning programs.
Wave file to MP3 Conversion
via popular encoders - Now, via the use of popular outboard encoders (Blade, Lame,
Ogg Vorbis, Xing), you can quickly and easily convert any wave file to MP3 format
from within the program.
Weighting Function added to Median Filter - This new function from within the
Median Filter allows you to control the Timbre of your wave file.
response and 4th Order Slope added to Band Pass, High Pass, and Low Pass - These
filters display relatively steep roll-off characteristics, but, unlike the Butterworth
filters, have ripple in their pass-band.
Filter Sweeper - A novel new filter
which allows the user to apply varying degrees of notch, high and low pass filters
over time. This is perfect in situations where more filtering is needed at the
beginning of a file.
De-Esser with Variable Frequency Control to Dynamics
Processor - This special compression algorithm is tooled directly to remove hard
s sounds that occur in older and poorly recorded files.
Wave Form Drawing - Now you can zoom to single sample resolution and manually
draw out clicks and pops that show up as spikes in the waveform.
Play Range - Allows you to audition a selected area or play from the cursor and
add a predetermined amount of space on each side. This is particularly useful
when trying to zero in on a problem area.
Timer Recording - Just like your VCR
you can set your software to begin recording
at a certain time and end recording later. This can be set to be a one time recording
or a daily recording.
Signal Triggered VOX Recording - You can now trigger
the software to begin recording automatically when a user determined level of
signal is sustained for a user determined length of time.
- New to the Spectrum Analyzer

Hold Added to VU Meters - Newly designed VU meters more closely resemble a high
end stereo system readout.

Conversion tool allow you to select from 3 different dithering options
Spectrum, Triangular High Pass, and Noise Shape 2.
