I've been listening to the this fan created TF soundtrack now for a few years.  I was often distracted by sudden and random sound FX that would creep into a track unexpectedly.  I always dreamed about being able to remove those sounds and just have a pure musical experience.

For the past few years I played around with the RX2 which is Izotope's audio restoration software.  I got some pretty good results with it, but nothing that would knock your socks off.  Then last year in the fall, the RX3 was released.  I decided to try the demo out and it blew me away.  Its "A.I." calculates better than the previous version.  The functions of trimming and sifting through noise is far more accurate and efficient and takes less time to complete tasks. 

We've been given a special price on the software if we buy it before September 4th. Just $650, when it regularly sells for $1200. If we can fund the purchase of the software I'll take out the clicks, crackle and leftover sound FX in the soundtrack for everyone, backers and non-backers alike, so the Transformers community can have a soundtrack like the Robotech fans do.

Stretch Goals

  • Unfilter @ $1050 (Unchirp as well for free)
  • Clariphonic EQ @ $1250

So why would I pick UNFILTER ($400 software) over the Clariphonic EQ which is ($200) as the first stretch goal?  Without UNFILTER to reveal the obstructed frequencies, the Clariphonic EQ will do little good.  But after revealing them, the Clariphonic EQ will certainly enhance them.

Risks and challenges

In some circumstances where frequencies are not buried but simply not there, UNFILTER (stretch goal) will have no effect. My experimentation with the tracks range from minimal to great. So there is no way to know until I go through every single track with this software.

I promise to be very transparent and give honest updates through kickstarter.
