ERA De-Clipper

ERA De Clipper
Salvage tracks which cannot be recorded again

Clipping happens when audio has been recorded at too high a volume, leading to the loudest peaks being and distorted. Whether you’ve been given bad audio by a client or have had to deal with less-than-perfect recording equipment, the ERA 5 De-Clipper can reconstruct the waveform intelligently, with just a couple of clicks.

Quick, easy and intuitive

ERA 5 De-Clipper has your back with its intelligent algorithms and automated processes, meaning that you only need to compare which of two settings and types works best for your audio. It’s perfect for saving projects from audio disasters, and it couldn’t be faster to use.

  • Reduce distortion from loud laughs and shouts in an otherwise perfect dialogue recording without dialing in any sliders.
  • Find the type of de-clipping that treats your particular audio best by selecting between two types of de-clip processing.
  • For extra-problematic audio emergencies, engage the High Quality setting to increase processing quality (as well as CPU usage).
  • The best solutions for the problems you routinely face.

    You can get the ERA 5 De-Clipper as part of the ERA 5 Bundle Standard and Pro.

    How to fix audio clipping with the ERA plugin

    ERA 5 De-Clipper is the only automatic de-clipper in the market. Here’s a list of the plugin controls:


    Toggles the declipping process on or off. When this button is glowing blue, the plugin is actively de-clipping your audio.

    Type 1 and Type 2

    Type 1 de-clipping is enough for most types of audio; the Type 2 algorithm is heavier-handed and designed to work on signals that are more damaged.


    In most cases, setting the Quality to Standard will be enough to de-clip audio very well; setting Quality to High can improve the result even more, but requires a lot more processing power from your machine. High Quality is a useful setting for rendering audio.


    Establish the output level of the plugin to help reduce overly high signal levels.


    Save different settings in the A position to those in the B position. This is useful in comparing the results of different processing intensities with the flick of a single switch.

    Another type of distortion that can crop up in voice recordings are plosives. Use both the ERA 5 De-Clipper and the ERA 5 Plosive Remove for clean as you like audio.
