Raising Jake Studios has updated Limited-S, a mastering grade De-Esser/Enhancer plugin, to version 1.2.0.
The update includes:
- User-resizable GUI with automatic scale for high resolution video monitors.
- Linear Phase crossover option for critical mastering work.
Limited-S deviates from traditional de-esser 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 max 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.
Price: $34.95 USD. The update is free for all existing customers. Free demos for all formats are available at the company's website.
