HoRNet has announced the release of Sybilla Pro, an advanced version of the Sybilla de-esser effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.
Sybilla Pro is a multi filter de-esser, unlike other traditional de-essers Sybilla Pro has 8 different tunable filters to effectively find the offending sibilance and feed the compressor that will reduce it.
Sybilla Pro is a wideband de-esser, the compressor stage is driven by the sum of the output of the active filters above the threshold so that if the sibilance moves in frequency Sybilla Pro can follow it and never miss it.
Sybilla Pro features
- Intelligent relative threshold.
- Eight filters for sibilance detection.
- Adjustable frequency and level for each filter.
- Switch to turn on and off each filter.
- Key listen for the entire filter bank and each of the filters.
- Meters for each filter.
- Instantaneous gain reduction meter with peak hold.
- Two different compression modes.
- Attack and release setting for the compressor stage
- Dry/wet knob.
Sybilla for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/RTAS) is available for purchase for 21.99 EUR. An upgrade path is available for owners of Sybilla.

Admiral Quality has released version 1.20 beta 1 of Poly-Ana, the virtual analog synthesizer instrument for Windows and Mac.
We’ve finally got OSX 64 bit support in both Poly-Ana and SCAMP, as well as a new, key-file based copy protection system (so customers won’t have to ask us for new or additional keys anymore). As so much has changed in these products in order to support the new platforms, we’ve put both BACK TO BETA to make sure they get well tested.
As we always do, during the BETA period our products are on sale for HALF PRICE! Our flagship “virtual analog” synth plug-in, Poly-Ana, is currently a mere $89.98 USD, her preset player little sister, L’il Poly-Ana is $47.98 USD, and the analog modeled, envelope following filter effect that started it all, SCAMP, is only $34.97 USD. Regular prices will resume after the 1.20 BETA period, but we don’t know how long the BETAs will run for, so you’ll want to try these products as soon as you can so you don’t miss your chance at these rare deals.
Poly-Ana is available for purchase for $89.98 USD during the beta period.

BBE Sound has announced the release of Sonic Sweet Optimized, version 3.0 of its plug-in bundle, which includes 3 newly “Optimised” plug-ins and Mach 3 Bass, a new bass enhancer.
This new version makes the legendary BBE Sound available to broadcast, producers and musicians for all their recordings. Sonic Sweet “Optimised” has been completely re-worked from the ground up to be compatible with AAX and Pro Tools 11. The bundle has also been fully tested on the latest operating systems including Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) and Windows 8.
The BBE Sonic Sweet “Optimised” is a complete rewrite of the plug-ins included in the original “Sonic Sweet” plug-ins bundle. Designed to make your mixes clearer and louder like its forerunner, it adds a new fourth plug-in to the collection, the Mach 3 Bass. At the heart of the bundle there is still the software version of BBE’s famous Sonic Maximiser hardware range, which is an emulation of their exclusive processing technologies that has set the benchmark for sound enhancement. World-renowned musicians have insisted upon using BBE Sound professional audio processors since they were first introduced in the ’80s.
BBE’s Sonic Sweet “Optimised” will add clarity to the top end and fatness to the bottom, just like their famous hardware processors do without the “fizz” or digital “sizzle” common to most other sonic enhancers. The refinements brought by this new “Optimised” version extends to a new optimised GUI and improved controls for fine-tuning your sound.
*Because Sonic Sweet “Optimised” was completely rebuilt, it is NOT compatible with previous versions of BBE Sonic Sweet Plug-ins. Any sessions with a previous version of Sonic Sweet loaded into it must continue to use the old versions of the plug-ins.
The bundle is available from DontCrack for the introductory price of $69 USD until July 31st, 2014 (regular $149 USD). Previous Sonic Sweet owners can upgrade to the new Sonic Sweet v3.0 bundle for $29 USD.
