2 new plug-ins for the Harrison DAW
Harrison Consoles announces the update of its DAW with two new pre-installed de-esser and expander/gate plug-ins.
The XT-DS De-Esser is designed to remove the sibilants from your vocal tracks. Harrison adds that their proprietary algorithm will only remove what contributes to the sibilances and will ignore all the “energy” in the “ess” frequency band so your track won’t be altered.
The plug-in features redundant controls for easier workflow and you can visually adjust on the graph the frequencies and “ess” and high frequency bands. Last, an Auto Solo function will solo the frequency bands.
The second plug-in brought by this update is the XT-EG Expander/Gate, designed for noise gating and track dynamics enhancement.
The gate section features classic gate, depth, attack, release and Hold controls, but Harrison also added three original functions:
Hysteresis will open the gate at a defined level and will remain open even if the signal decreased below the original threshold
Lookahead will “prepare” the gate opening, for the plug-in can be set to “see” the waveforms in advance within times that can be adjusted to 0ms, 5ms and 20ms
Sidechain Filter allows the gate detector to only look at a specific frequency
The Expander section includes, Ratio and Knee controls.
Each plug-in is available for $109. Note that if you purchase two or more plug-ins in the same order, you’ll get a $25 discount off each plug-in. More information at harrisonconsoles.com.
