Tutorial: How to improve a non-ideal guitar recording with ERA-D

It is most likely that everyone of us has been in the position of having a great material to record but really poor recording conditions, either because of a non treated room, or because of a noisy environment.

ERA-D is a tool that helps us get closer to a perfect recording, even when the recording conditions are poor. It is the only plugin that allows for simultaneous noise and reverb removal, taking into account their natural counter-interaction.

This video presents one of these cases: a guitar is recorded with two different microphones in rough recording conditions. The room has a lot of undesired reverb and things get worse because of the non-ideal mic placement and the microphone noise. The basic idea is to use the close microphone as a primary mic, and use the second one (which has the worst recording quality) as a backing layer for the primary. Although the initial recording from the second mic could be considered as unacceptable and in any other case would be thrown away, the ERA-D processing transforms it to useful material that we can work with, in order to enrich the primary mic. The same workflow can be applied whenever someone has more than one microphones available, even a mobile phone’s microphone. That is because the main concept behind the ERA-D technology is to allow everyone to give their recordings a studio quality, even when the recording conditions are against it!
