The GUI offers two parameters for basic operation with an additional 2-band filter section for fine-tuning. The Noveltech Vocal Enhancer plug-in is available for a host of popular professional audio formats, including AU, AAX, RTAS, TDM, Venue, and VST.

Mini Control for Cans

LARS (Left And Right Switch) simplifies switching from program and camera-return audio with L/R isos on devices that have a limited monitor interface or a complicated menu system (reddingaudio.com, $250). It works with units like Sound Devices’ 788T, 744T or Zaxcom’s Nomad, and can easily switch between Right Only, Left Only or Stereo on either the program or camera return audio with a turn of a switch. LARS is also a versatile miniature router to select and send iso IFB feeds from mixers to wireless transmitters with ease.
