If you go to high, it will give you sort of a strange, hyper de-essed sound. The large depth knob controls the overall strength of the process. Find out more on the website. Is it a multiband compressor? This product requires an activation! As well as sorting out your vocals - removing sibilance, for example - Oeksound also says that Soothe can fix fingerboard noise problems on an acoustic guitar recording, tame excessive whistling from cymbal close mics, and tone down overly-bright electric guitar and piano tracks. Oeksound from Helsinki, Finland, claim to have devised a fast and user-friendly solution to these problems.
Here's what Oeksound say about soothe: soothe is a dynamic equaliser with self-adjusting frequency bands. Once you treat these with a de-esser of your choice, you might think you are home free, but you are not. It was the crucial to me getting something extra special out of the vocals. This can prevent aliasing and distortion, and a resolution option as well. The difference here is that instead of working with only four or maybe five bands, as a multiband compressor would, Soothe will analyse the signal in real time and choose the exact frequencies to target by itself, based on the input and the sensitivity you set for different frequency areas.
We were very impressed by the lack of artefacts even at minimum settings, though. The Delta switch enables you to see and hear the difference signal - what is being removed making it easier to fine-tune the parameters with confidence. But it does this dynamically, on potentially dozens of frequencies, as needed. If you can easily recognize comb filtering in what you hear, chances are that you would be able to convince yourself that the soothed sound is cleaner and closer compared to non-soothed one. As you increase the depth, the reduction increases as well.
As it's increased, the bands become narrower, sharper and more numerous, until, at maximum, the attenuation gets surgical, with no crossover between resonant frequencies. So these individual controls here, frequency, bandwidth, and sensitivity, you have per band, and again, visually, it makes a lot of sense. The delta toggle presents you with the difference signal, letting you hear and see just what is being removed. The intelligent and dynamic part What Soothe does is listen to the audio material and automatically detects the potentially problematic resonances which it will then surgically reduce with amazing accuracy. You hear only the effect with none of the problems of the other approaches. Experiments I decided to try soothe on a synth track stem made from an arpeggiated line layered with a , and two sampler tracks.
You have three bands where you can focus on the problem ranges and choose the degree of detection and reduction and various other parameters separately for each band. The reduction kicks in when needed and where needed, without affecting the nearby frequency areas. We are hardly ever approaching that. I chose this ear friendly on top master preset. The reduction kicks in when needed and where needed, without affecting the nearby frequency areas. The iLok dongle can be used to run the protected software on different computers. I think I first heard about Soothe from mastering engineer Brad Boatright.
An internet connection on any computer and a free user-accout at www. When did you get into recording? Soothe was originally conceived as a vocal processor, and analyses the input signal on the fly. Interface and Controls Billed as a time-saving tool, soothe is a dynamic equalizer with self-adjusting bands that analyzes in real time and adjusts frequency reduction based on the input. One licence allows activation of the product on 2 machines. Well, not in the case of Oeksound Soothe. Again, this has been Ian Vargo with The Pro Audio Files and masteringinthebox. Flexible and can be used in almost any track dynamic processors is an in demand tool nowadays, by providing a new approach to an old problem but this time having a lot more control.
I would focus in with appropriate filters, with sharpness around 5-6 and selectivity 6-8. It goes by the name of Soothe, and is a dynamic resonance suppressor for mid and high frequencies. Along the way, you also get a grip on how soothe operates. I even found Soothe to be helpful when mastering. This saves you from having to manually notch the problematic mid and high frequencies.
But the 20-day fully-functional free trial should give you the opportunity to be your own judge. Lose the harshness and keep the good stuff In summary, Soothe is a remarkable device for automatically reducing problem resonances and is as easy to use as it is effective. We see this is -6dB. This is a plug-in that makes a difference. Soothe is a very different animal, something quite unique indeed. Drum tracks with overly loud and ringy cymbal crashes were tamed especially well by the plug-in, in a way that kept the high frequencies bright and sparkly while eliminating harshness.
The most important training I have received though is sitting for hours on end at my studio making music! When you start increasing sharpness slowly, first prominent downward oriented blobs start to show up. I only discovered this recently, but when I did, I immediately remixed every song on the last record I produced, even though every song had already been mastered. You can also download a 14-day demo. We click on this purple circle, and we see it reflected over here in the knobs. This saves you from having to manually notch the problematic mid and high frequencies. Those types of common flaws are just not present in soothe. An iLok dongle isn't required.
