Dynamic resonance suppressor for mid and high frequencies
soothe is our first release in the line of modern audio processors by oeksound. Originally designed as vocal processor, the plugin gives you the perfect, in control, world class vocal sound you’ve been striving for, with unmatched ease.
Microphones are unnatural things and can bring out overtones in the voice that the listener wouldn’t normally be bothered by. I’m always battling to make the music sound like real music coming through the unforgiving speakers, and routinely spend at least an hour automating EQ on individual syllables on a lead vocal. soothe is a magic wand for lead vocals. It keeps all the voice and takes away the harsh anomalies of what happens when you put a microphone a few centimeters away from a singer’s mouth. The results actually sound better than the EQ editing I’ve always done, as soothe can make dozens of adjustments within one syllable. Thank you for such brilliant work!
soothe is the best name for this wonder, if you’ve ever had a sound (or combination of sounds) that takes your head off when you turn it up then soothe is the answer for you. It’s very sympathetic to the energy of the original sound but manages to smooth the harshness while retaining the character.

The first plugin in a while to find its place in my otherwise analog mastering signal chain.

soothe is like magic, removes those nasty peaks and annoying frequencies you spend so much time trying to remove. I wish I had this tool back when I mixed the talkbox for One Smile. One week’s job cut down to just minutes. Also, apply soothe to cymbals to make them less ringing and easier to fit into the mix.
soothe is a true gem. It’s been a tremendous timesaver during my production process -especially during vocal production and mixing, but it also shines on numerous other sounds.
soothe does with ease what used to take hours and hours of tweaking. It manages to stay true to the original character of a signal while removing unpleasant resonances in a very musical way - and all of that dynamically, on an unlimited number of bands, in real time.
It ended up on every single record I’ve done ever since I got my hands on it, and I don’t think that’s going to change anytime soon.
Kudos to Olli and his team at oeksound for this amazing tool.

A plugin that dynamically notches out problem frequencies and resonances – genius.
I’ve been waiting years for someone to design a plugin that does what soothe does. Dynamic EQs and soft saturators never seem to do the job in a musical way and required a lot of tweaking and fussing. soothe does in minutes what used to take hours. This plugin will pay for itself very quickly in time saved.
