Accentize has slapped the ‘Pro’ tag on its room removal plug-in, DeRoom. Why? DeRoom Pro debuts a new feature: machine-learning based reverb removal. The developer has trained an artificial neural network to recognize many kinds of room reverbation and extract the reflection components from the direct sound. Best of all, it happens in real-time!
Accentize DeRoom Pro
DeRoom Pro has two visualization modes – Waveform and Spectrogram view. These let you instantly see how the plug-in is affecting your audio. Waveform view shows broadband energy while Spectrogram view has you observing the different frequency components. This makes for more informed decisions when removing room and reverb.
Additionally, the core algorithm has been improved with automatic estimation of optimal room-size settings. Of course, you can still manually select the type of room (small, medium, large) you are dealing with.
Another highlight is Spectral Focus mode, which enables per-band parameter adjustment to let you shape the reverb suppression in accordance with your audio’s frequency content. Finally, the low latency mode enables the live application of DeRoom Pro. Pretty useful for challenging venues, I reckon.
Price and availability
DeRoom Pro is on an introductory sale at EUR 157, down from EUR 210. The price is hardly surprising considering this plug-in is designed for professional use. The plug-in works in mono and stereo, with AAX, VST3, and AU formats available for Windows and macOS computers. An active internet connection is required to start and activate the plug-in. This happens only once, then it’s offline use.
