soundBlade Product Line Overview
soundBlade LE is designed to make DDPs (CD) as well as generate full resolution master files that are then used in another audio file-conversion app to make MP3, AAC and other file formats for electronic music delivery. soundBlade LE assumes you have already processed your files (EQ, Comp, Limiter) to master level. soundBlade LE is also great for restoring mono or stereo files using optional NoNOISE options like Manual DeClick or Broadband DeNoise. What sB LE can not do is use plug-ins.
If you need a mastering app that supports plug-ins, we suggest you consider:
- Our soundBlade HD All Access Subscription service. soundBlade HD All Access has almost everything you'd need as a mastering engingeer: all of our NoNOISE options and Sonic Studio branded plug-ins in affordable and easy-to-manage quarterly or annual subscription terms. In addition, soundBlade HD All Access supports many, but not all, third party audio plug-ins.
- soundBlade SE is perfect for stereo mastering. soundBlade SE supports many plug-ins, has many of the same features as soundBlade HD, you can purchase options like Sonic Studio Mastering EQ or NoNOISE stuff and it's much less expensive than soundBlade HD.
