DC EIGHT arrives on the scene with quite a track record to live up to. The Diamond Cut products have always been about one thing...getting the best sound possible, from your treasured recordings. The beauty of this product, now shipping for almost 15 years, is that it doesn't try to be all things to all people. It specializes in taking old recordings and making them sound new again...period. Just about every 2 years, we create a new version of the product...an all of the new features deal with taking your old recordings, and making them sound better. It's a simple concept, but one we live by and a major reason why there is not one single product on the planet that does as good a job as DC EIGHT. This set of noise reduction and audio enhancement tools will help you quickly and easily remove noise like clicks, pops, hiss, surface noise, hum, buzz and other audio disturbances associated with older formats. After you've removed the noise, you have an equally powerful tool kit offering the sweeteners...enhancement tools that can breathe life back into your audio memories and treat your ears to your favorites exactly as you remember them...and sometimes better. With DC EIGHT, you simply record your audio to the hard disk of your computer using your sound card (nothing new here...it's no different than recording to a cassette player in the old days) and then audition and clean up the audio using our sophisticated arsenal of professional quality tools to remove the noise and enhance the remainder.
Keep in mind that most of our customers are old enough to have a record collection, so that means they're also old enough that many of them weren't born with a computer in their right hand. That's why Tracer offers the world's best technical support. We answer our phones and our emails and simply help you if you run into some confusion along the way. Like any other tool you've used in the past, with a little practice, you'll quickly be up to speed and have an expert understanding of the product you're using. We've also done our part to make this process as painless as possible. Most of our filters; both enhancement and noise reduction have a "Preview" button. You simply open the filter, click on Preview, and you're now hearing the audio playing in realtime with the filters in place...no different than adjusting the equalizer on your stereo system. You make realtime adjustments using your ears as your guide and "dial in" the audio until it sounds perfect. Then you simply hit the "Run Filter" button and DC EIGHT makes you a new copy of the audio that your ears have just perfected. With this method, even the newest beginner can start achieving quality results in minutes!
Besides being incredibly easy to use with our standard filtering and enhancement, DC EIGHT also has some even easier features like our EZ Clean Filter and our EZ Enhancer. These complex filters offer multiple filters that combine noise reduction and enhancement and can remove several types of noise simultaneously...almost like Audio Training Wheels!
We've set up an environment that fits any users' needs: If you are the type of person who sweats the details and wants perfection, you'll have several approaches to each problem and also detailed extra information like Tracer's Educational DVDs that help you learn more about the product and become more productive with it. If you just want to quickly transform your records and tapes to CD, MP3 or other popular formats, our EZ filters combine speed with our time tested, world famous filters. We also offer great telephone and email technical support so you never feel like you're being left out in the cold.
Most importantly? Because DC EIGHT has always been and always will be designed for Audio Restoration and Enhancement, you won't have to wade through 100 features you don't need. Every new feature and improvement to the product usually comes at the request of our users who are normally doing exactly what you're doing...it makes us seem really smart and intuitive, but in reality, our customers who use the product every day are the smart ones...we just listen."
Here are additional specs for those of you who love details. Most of these specs come directly from the manufacturers.
