You are correct that it works based on using the music itself as a
reference. It has complex algorithms that attempt to minimize the
reduction of vibrato as it stands. I'd love to have a relatively short
segment or three of music to try it on.
The challenge for me is much of the worst wow and flutter I come across
is on spoken word recordings and neither RX8 or Capstan can function
well with those as I understand it. Neither of those programs do what
Plangent can do.
