Fairfax, CA (February 17, 2016)—Software company Sonic Studio has teamed with engineer Billy Stull of Legendary Audio to create I.C.E., a cross–platform signal processing plug–in that reportedly takes a new approach to audio restoration.

Working “in double precision, 64-bit space” without using EQ or re-synthesis, I.C.E is said to reduce unwanted components within a sound file, including undesirable distortion; “hot spots” and harshness; overmodulation and overloads; sibilance; resonances and “digititis” from converters; DAWs and DSP.

Known for his mastering hardware, the Masterpiece Analog Mastering System designed in collaboration with and built by Rupert Neve, Stull noted that while the plug-in can be used to clean up troubled recordings, it can also be used for new projects, such as shaping a vocal track with I.C.E. so it sounds like a more expensive microphone was used.
