Spectral Cleaning

With this practical tool, you can identify interfering frequencies like coughing or moving chairs using a color coded pitch representation. You can then mark and remove the unwanted background noises. Spectral Cleaning analyzes the material that has been removed and replaces this with synthetic waveforms.

Pitch Correction

With the Elastic Audio Editor, you can tune your vocals to a pitch-perfect performance without affecting the length of the recording. Additionally, you are able to set up Pitch Automation to achieve your desired results.
