Adobe demonstrates automatic de-umming
Visit https://podnews.net/update/um-er-um-uh-gone for all the links, and to subscribe. Adobe have given a preview of automatic de-umming, in a piece of work they've called #ProjectSoundSeek powered by Adobe Sensei. They also demonstrated #ProjectAwesomeAudio, a way to remove noise, fix EQ, compression and more at the touch of a button. The sessions are described as 'Sneaks', and the website notes that "some of these innovations actually make it into Adobe products", so it's unlikely that they'll be launched imminently.
