SPL introduces its very first two 500 modules, the DeS de-esser and TDx transient designer.

A dual band deesser based on SPL's classic design of the genre, the DeS features two processing stages that can be used separately or jointly since they are connected in series as independent de-esser modules. The Low-Band De-Esser (Lo-S) is set first in the chain, and if both de-essers are engaged there is interaction between them, making a signal already processed with the Low-Band De-Esser different from the raw material that the High-Band De-Esser would otherwise process.

Features include:

  • Sibilance reduction by phase cancellation
  • Very effective - very unobtrusive
  • 2-band processing: Hi-S and Lo-S
  • Only 2 controls - easy and fast to use
  • De-S intensity LED display
  • Male/Female voice selection
  • ON/bypass switch
  • Signal LED
  • Single-Slot 500 series rack module
  • Made in Germany

MSRP is €529 (including VAT).

As for the TDx, it is based on SPL‘s Differential Envelope Technology (DET) which allows level-independent dynamic processing by calculating differences in generated envelopes: these envelopes are always tracking the curve of the original signal to provide optimal results in every moment of the music, and as a result only two controls per channel are required to allow the user to completely reshape the attack and sustain characteristics of a sound.

Thanks to the new TDx parallel mix feature, it is possible to continuously blend between the processed and unprocessed signals, and the range of functions is extended even further and with the three parameters ATTACK, SUSTAIN and MIX, which offer an intuitive operation.

Features include:

  • Extended original Transient Designer circuitry
  • NEW: Parallel MIX control - blend between "Wet" and "Dry"
  • ATTACK control to amplify or attenuate attacks
  • SUSTAIN control to prolong or shorten sustain
  • Differential Envelope Technology (DET)
  • Output level control
  • ON/Bypass switch
  • Signal LED
  • Single-Slot 500 series rack module
  • Made in Germany

MSRP is €549 (including VAT).
