Default Cedar C-vox vs VoiceX - difference?

Pretty self-explanatory title;

Does anyone here know the difference between Cedar C-Vox and VoiceX?

Both in practical terms using it and in technical terms.

I think VoicEX is tailored more toward Post Production dialog where C-Vox is more for music and home studio noise.

I have C Vox and I don't really use it much on post production. Dx Revive Pro has been my new goto as well as Clear.

VoicEX is think is also more for real time NR, so it is more for mixing anyway. A bit expensive as well.

I've never used the C-Vox as I don't have UAD. But I always assumed it was based on DNS and wasn't any sort of AI process like VoiceX.

C-Vox is okay. Its not great but not without use. Probably close to DNS but very limited.

I had run across noisy ADR studios as talent was all over the place and it was very helpful.

But Dx Revive Pro does even better, so Its basically an unused plugin now.
And Clear is even better.

The DXRevive Pro is awesome for kind of restoring of the audio, while Clear is more like an effective noise reduction and reverb reduction plugin.
I would say they more complement each other. But they are very different. And they both flag the end of the DNS One exclusive era for pro NR. Now Cedar needs to adjust its prices in order to compete with the $99 Clear or $249 Hush Pro. And I wish them to survive. (Yes, I own DNS One as well).

Hush only works on Silicon Macs so maybe that’s what’s giving problems if you’re on a non-silicon Mac?

Hush Pro is fantastic. I'm blown away by how well it can remove noise without effecting voice quality.

I'm using it in combination with Cedar DNS One still. Using them in tandem usually means I don't have to push each one too hard.

The biggest drawback to Hush is that it's audiosuite and not a real time insert, which is another reason I still keep the Cedar DNS One around. It's nice to have a quick and easy way to back off settings or push them more on the stage.

I'm also using DxRevive as well, but I find my Cedar/Hush combo works better for general noise reduction. However where DxRevive excels is at rebuilding missing frequencies, such as poorly recorded or off-mic dialogue, or archival or cell phone audio that is just simply missing frequencies. I use the other plugins to reduce noise, but I use DxRevive to rebuild signals, if that makes sense.

I would consider all 3 (Cedar DNS One, Hush Pro and DxRevive) as indispensable parts of my modern day kit. I still use Izotope RX as well for spot spectral repairs and clicks etc, but I find I'm reaching for it less and less these days.

I'd be curious to try the new Cedar VoiceEx, but its cost is simply far too high compared to its competition. It would have to absolutely blow everything else out of the water for me to entertain that price, and from what I'm reading on this board it seems it's good but not 4x the price good. I will say though that I am very happy to still have my Cedar DNS One at least.

Totally agree about Hush Pro and to clarify, it does work on Intel Macs, I'm using it myself on a mac pro 2019.
It's just a little slow and beachballs a bit but it doesn't crash and gets the job done.

Good to know. I’ve never tried it on an intel but was told silicon only by the developer
