soothe audio processor
soothe is our first release in the line of modern audio processors by oeksound. Originally designed as vocal processor, the plug-in gives you the perfect, in control, world class vocal sound you’ve been striving for, with unmatched ease.
So long, notching
soothe is a dynamic equaliser with self-adjusting frequency bands. Unlike traditional EQ-tools, soothe analyses the signal on the fly and adjusts the frequency-wise reduction based on the input. This saves you from having to manually notch the problematic mid and high frequencies. The reduction kicks in when needed and where needed, without affecting the nearby frequency areas. This results in more detail, top end, and presence, in a way that is hard to unhear.
High mids tricky, soothe simple
Carefully designed vocal processors are great general purpose tools. soothe excels in fixing a range of problems:
- A vocalist with problematic sibilance recorded with a saturating microphone.
- Fingerboard noises on acoustic guitar and double bass tracks.
- Excessive whistling from the cymbal close mics.
- Overly bright electric guitar and piano tracks.
soothe works wonders on individual tracks as well as on sub mixes and master bus.
One user interface to control them all
Modern, well designed, and informative graphical user interface allows you to target just the areas you want, with control over the frequency range and sensitivity of the process. The unique frequency graph shows exactly which frequencies are being processed. Tweak the material for round results that sit well in the mix, or go overboard and find new innovative sounds! The delta toggle presents you with the difference signal, letting you hear and see just what is being removed. This allows you to fine-tune the parameters with confidence.
Listen ma’, no artifacts
We’ve put several years on R&D to designing a spectral process with minimum amount of artifacts. soothe is free from pre-ring, crossovers, and summing artifacts commonly found in dynamic eqs and multi-band compressors. The process sounds as natural as you like, with the option to add even more resolution and oversampling – if your CPU can handle it!
