Surveillance & Law Professionals

Mobile phones, video cameras and CCTV systems can be incredibly valuable tools for reporting important events. Sometimes the very same tools are used to provide evidence and context in difficult and often dangerous situations.

Unfortunately, as unpredictable as our world can be, we can’t always capture the information we need in enough detail. Sometimes a low quality recording is the only evidence we have.

Our audio forensics team repair audio evidence from a variety of sources such as: Cell phone recordings and footage, CCTV systems, emergency service calls, answering machines, voicemail recordings, video cameras and computer files.

We handle audio evidence submitted to us with the utmost care. We never share your files with any 3rd party. All of our work is done in-house, offline, and by our small team of forensic audio specialists.

Noise Reduction
Film makers and video professionals

Shooting video is a lot of hard work. It can be very stressful even at the best of times. Adding audio recording in to the mix and you’re bound to make some mistakes. When you’re running short on time mic placement, levels and sometimes pressing the record button is the least of your concerns.

We support video professionals all around the world with their audio problems. Unwanted noise, clipped and distorted files, clicks, drop outs, excessive echo and reverb, and more.

Wedding videographers

I know first hand what you have to deal with. I don’t know anyone who has it worse when it comes to capturing audio. While you’re rushing around trying to capture every moment from the perfect angle, with the right lighting, the right lens, all while nailing a focus pull.

The last thing on your mind is capturing flawless, focused, cinematic audio. Unfortunately, until wedding audio-graphers are a thing… the job is yours.

Luckily all hope is not lost. We can help with problems such as: Excessive noise, microphone handling noise, distorted and clipped audio, echo and reverb, wind noise, crying babies (and parents), animals, and much more.

If you want to know if your audio files can be repaired, send through your audio file(s) and we can send you a demo.

Music producers and audio engineers

Music is all about vibe, and nothing kills the mood and brings you out of the moment like artefacts in your recordings.

The perfect take can be ruined simply by a glitch in the recording, lip smacks, plosives, sibilance, clipping, distortion, static, room noise, text messages and other unwanted noises.

We have tools to transparently remove all of these issues with incredible precision.

How does audio restoration work?

Some audio issues are easy to define and others are harder to explain. The one thing they all have in common is they’re distracting and they suck the life from your audio.

They may be clicks, pops, hiss, clipping, distorted, they may have too much reverb or echo and sound distant, they may just be unbalanced.

We begin by listening to the audio and pin-pointing each issue that will need to be fixed. One issue at a time, we begin to process the audio with very precise tools. The aim is complete transparency, like the issue never existed in the first place.

With the help of software like iZotope RX or Spectral Layers we have a visual representation of our audio. When you’ve been processing audio for as long as we have you begin to recognise patterns and sound that should and shouldn’t be there.

What software do we use?

We use a range of tools and different software depending on the problem we’re up against. Often once piece of gear, software, or plugin can solve one issue in a sound recording, but can’t solve another.

This is where having a range of different restoration tools from different minds is so important. Sure this is incredibly expensive but we think you’re worth it.

We use a range of plugins and software that go far beyond those found in typical digital audio workstations (DAWs) or video editing suite. From iZotope RX, Spectralayers, WaveLab, Cedar, Universal Audio, Waves, Adobe Audition, and more.

Plugins from the likes of Cedar Audio and Waves are second to none when it comes to removing unwanted background noise. Cedar Audio being the most transparent noise reduction with the highest audio quality. You can’t beat RX and Spectralayers when cleaning up clicks, crackles, scratches and hums.

Clicks, Pops & Thumps

Clicks, pops & thumps are probably the most common audio problems, and they are almost impossible to avoid. Luckily most of the time we don't notice them and when they are a problem, they are usually the easiest problem to fix.

What's the difference you ask? Well they're all quite similar but a simple way to think of them is as a slap, punch and kick.

  • A Click as typically a sharp and quick sound that lives in the mid to higher range frequencies, one example may be the click of a computer mouse.

  • A Pop is a little deeper, this sound lives in the midrange frequencies, one example of this may be the popping of a cork from a wine bottle

  • A Thump is deep, it lives in the lower frequencies, for an example of this one... imagine a downstairs neighbour slamming a door directly underneath you.
  • de-hum audio forensics

    Hiss, Hum & Rumble

    Sounds like a horrible title for a boxing movie right? Hiss, hum and rumble are very common issues that almost anyone who has recorded audio will have experienced at one point or another. They typically carry on for long periods of time and are best described as annoying. Whilst these issues (more often than not) require the assistance of an audio professional, they are usually an easy problem to fix.

    So what's the difference?

  • Hiss is typically a constant sound that lives in the mid to higher range frequencies. A great example of what hiss sounds like is letting the air out of a tyre.

  • Hum can occur at any frequency, and usually at multiple frequencies at one time. It's well described as a constant drone. An example of this could be a microwave during operation.

  • Rumble is deep, and lives in the lower frequencies. For this example, think earthquake and the vibration under your feet.
  • de-clip audio track

    Clipping & Distortion

    Clipping and distortion are some of the most deadly audio problems. They are the most damaging and noticeable issues you can have. These problems almost always require the assistance of an audio professional, and (depending on the severity) they are among the most difficult problems to fix.

    So what's the difference between clipping and distortion?

  • Clipping occurs where audio has exceeded its limitations. When the sound source is too loud or the input gain is set too high, clipping is inevitable.

  • Distortion comes in many forms. It is often a side effect of clipping or pushing equipment to its limits. This can also be a pleasing or exciting effect... but it's a big problem when you don't want it.

    Audio restoration is the process of removing imperfections (such as clicks, pops, hiss, rumble, background noise, crackle, hum, distortion, echo, reverb, and more) and improving the sound of a recording through EQ, compression and balancing levels.

    Yes! There are various audio restoration techniques and tools available today to help fix most problems you may experience.

    Some problems are easier to fix than others. Video editing software such as Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve all offer tools to help you de-click, de-noise and de-hum your audio.

    There are also many 3rd party tools available to help get the job done, but often come with a very thick user manual.

    Sound Scrubs can fix your audio today using the best and most advanced tools available. This is the fastest and most affordable solution to fix audio problems the other tools just can’t handle.

    Yes! But this is tough problem to fix. The standard tools you would find in video editing software like Adobe Premiere, Final Cut Pro and DaVinci Resolve will most likely fall sort of the task.

    But all hope is not lost!

    There are many 3rd party tools available to help get this job done, but fair warning… they often have a very steep learning curve and can cost a fortune.

    Sound Scrubs can fix distorted and clipping audio today using the best and most advanced tools available. This is the fastest and most affordable solution to fix any audio problems other tools just can’t handle.

    It really depends on how bad the audio recording is, the duration, and what’s on the line.

    Sometimes you have one shot, one opportunity to get the audio right. If things don’t go to plan… audio restoration is easier and cheaper than delivering the bad news to a client.

    You can get a free quote and demo here. No strings attached.

    This depends on the quality of the recording, but often quite a lot. If the primary subject is reasonably close to the microphone and speaking clearly, then the chances of getting good separation between the subject and background and removing a lot of background noise is greatly improved.
