Re: [ARSCLIST] Plangent Processes and speed correction
I just looked at their web site.
Their examples are all from tape or cylinders, i.e., constant speed. I'm
interested in 78s.
This is a brureau only. I spoke with them at the ARSC meeting. Cost is
about $ 3,000 per hour. Perhaps this has changed.
Speaking for myself, though I expect it reflects the attitude of many on
this particular list, I want to own the thing, preferbly as a plug-in.
This may not be possible as yet. The process may not be streamlined enough
to simplify it sufficently to be marketed.
The Antares Auto-Tune plug-in is $ 320 and up, PC and Mac. It seem to work
with lead instruents and sung vocals. I've not tried it.

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Plangent Processes and speed correction
Jamie asked me to post this as he's not a member of the ARSC list.
I am not affiliated with the product and I apologize for the mention
of a price.
Just thought I'd jump in for a moment:
The Plangent process is good at handling exactly this type of issue. A
example a famous rock anthem from the 70s, 8 minutes long, which runs
35 cents flat over its length due to its having been mixed on a non-servo
recorder. And servo recorders have their own problems when the feedback
resonates and puts a chatter into the tape at a fixed frequency thereby
creating IM. The process can handle both, and does so deterministically
rather than the way Antares Auto-tune and the CEDAR defluttering approach
the problem with attempts to analyze the program material to determine
is vibrato and what is wow. WQhich is dicey.
As for quoting prices, this is a non-commercial site, so I would ask that
anyone curious about the tariff would contact us, rather than bat about a
figure that may or may not be correct.
Thanks to Richard for having mentioned us, and I would be happy to discuss
the technique here if any interest exists. But I would ask that the
discussion here be non-commercial, lest anyone's nose get out of joint, or
come away with a fixed impression about our business model.
