St. Louis-based Sacred Heart/Contact Radio recently acquired a SADiE digital workstation with CEDAR Retouch™ to clean up productions dating back to the 1950s and to present new productions. The Retouch system will be used with the company’s SADiE RADiA workstation.

SADiE users since 1993, the “Contact” program, produced by Sacred Heart Program and syndicated to over 300 stations nationwide, portrays stories of real people meeting and surmounting real-life challenges.

“Some of the productions in our archives go back as far as the 1950s,” says Jim Hone, production director at Sacred Heart Radio. “They were produced at a time when broadcast technology was at one stage. Today, we’re at a completely different stage, one in which any artifacts that the older productions have will be magnified considerably. But with the Retouch system, we can make them sound as good and new as they did 30 years ago.”

Contemporary productions also receive treatment from Retouch. Sonic artifacts that occur while doing voice-overs and other open-microphone recording for the show are located and eliminated using Retouch algorithms and the SADiE workstation.
