It has been carefully designed to suppress any artificial or alienated sounds. The free Tonmann DeEsser plugin features: Wideband and lowpass reduction modes, adjustable detection threshold to retain the crisp sound character of a vocal and a look ahead feature for sibilants with short and sharp attacks.
