LSR Audio launches new de-esser plugin
LSR Audio presents the VLB902, a plugin emulation of a classic hardware studio de-esser.
Already known as the team behind the official Lindell Audio plugins, LSR Audio takes on the dbx 902 with this emulation in AAX, RTAS, AU, VST and VST3 formats. It aims at recreating the original's ability to remove the harshness without degrading the overall tone which made it very popular from the 80s to these days.
According to LSR Audio, the originality of the "902" is that it doesn't use a threshold setting to trigger de-essing, but instead compares the selected de-essing frequency level to the full bandwidth level, then uses this ratio to detect the amount of required de-essing on the input signal. As a result, the unit is able to detect "esses" independently to the material level and no calibration is required when a voice goes from whispering to loud singing.
Features of the VLB902 include:
- Faithful circuit emulation algorithm
- Wide band / high frequency only gain reduction
- No threshold, detection works at any level
- Adjustable frequency
- Range - amount of "ess" reduction
- Gain reduction meter
- Three different listen modes, not present on the original hardware
- Retina displays compatible
Price is $99. A free demo is available from https://lsraudio.com/.
