What does automatic really mean?Well, simply put, by automatic we mean less trouble, faster workflow, uncompromised results, more fun!
Got it! But what's the best way to use De-Clipper?
De-Clipper, like the rest of the ERA Bundle plugins, is designed to work:
1) on a clip based processing. Most DAWs or NLEs give the option to select a specific clip or an area of it, load De-Clipper, preview it and then De-Clip it! Easy right?
In this case, DeClipper will handle each sample differently and will apply the appropriate settings for each clip. You only have to select between Type I or Type II and make sure that High Quality is ON before the render to have the best results.
2) on a track based processing. In this case, you open a track with De-Clipper as an insert and then import all the clipped files in this track.
DeClipper will find the differences between each clip, even if they don't have the same level and during playback will automatically detect and repair the clipping points of each clip in the track.
Prefer to arrange the clips inside the track starting with the clip that has the lowest level to the clip with the highest one.
Due to the fact that it's very rare for a take to be clipped in different volume levels, De-Clipper detects the clipping level and assumes that any lower value is not clipped. That's why if you hit playback and have your clips in a similar order as shown in the image above, De-Clipper will not adapt its thresholds when passing from "Clipped_1" to "Clipped_2".
But even so, you can overcome this with a simple playhead jump to the desired clip.
In our example, the preferred sequence would be Clipped_2 / Clipped_3 /Clipped_1.
