Raising Jake Studios has announced the release of Limited-S, a mastering grade De-Esser/Enhancer plugin.
Limited-S deviates from traditional compressor designs by using a linear phase filter to calculate sibilance levels rather than a typical attack/decay filter. This approach provides very fast, low distortion response while eliminating the need to fiddle with attack/decay settings to get acceptable results. A "High Frequency Lift" control allows boosting levels in the sibilant range while controlling peak levels thus adding brightness to vocals, buses and masters.
Limited-S features Mid, Side, Left or Right modes when used in stereo tracks and switches automatically for mono/stereo to minimize CPU load.
Limited-S is a 64-bit plugin available in VST, VST3, AAX formats for Windows and VST, VST3, AAX and AU formats for Mac OS 10.7-11.x(Intel).
Price: $34.95 USD. Free demos for all formats are available at the company's website.
