soothe audio processor

Dynamic resonance suppressor for mid and high frequencies – try it now!

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.

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 artefacts

We’ve put several years on R&D to designing a spectral process with minimum amount of artefacts. soothe is free from pre-ring, crossovers, and summing artefacts 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!

    • Greg Wells

      “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!”

    • Rik Simpson

      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.”

    • Chris Shaw

      “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.”

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

    • Dada Life

      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.”

       

      Stefan, Dada Life

      “A plugin that dynamically notches out problem frequencies and resonances – genius”
