The new updated Esspresso is the ultimate de-essing solution for anyone involved in audio recording, boasting a brand-new interface that’s both sleek and user-friendly.
In almost all modern audio production, the menace of sibilance (those pesky high-frequency noises) has long troubled creators, engineers and producers. For instance, achieving a pristine vocal tone and fine-tuning the EQ can turn into a daunting task when the ‘s’:s distort and throw your mix off balance.
Esspresso’s brilliance lies in its unique approach. Unlike many conventional de-essers, it decouples the detection frequency range from the suppressor’s frequency range. This means you can pinpoint and compress specific frequencies, a feature highly coveted by professional sound engineers. With its lightning-fast and pinpoint-precise frequency response display, Esspresso places total control over those annoying S-sounds firmly in your hands, ensuring that they no longer threaten the integrity of your mix. To get you started, Esspresso v1.2 also includes a collection of presets to start from. A new addition is also a timeline view, giving full control of what’s happening.
