HoRNet Plug-Ins Sybilla

HoRNet Plug-Ins has announced the release of Sybilla, an “intelligent de-esser” effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

Sybilla splits the input signal in six frequency bands saving you the task of finding the sibilant frequency yourself, and if that frequency changes, Sybilla follows it allowing for effective and natural de-essing. You only have to decide how much de-essing you want.

Sybilla features

  • Automatic de-essing.
  • Adjustable effect amount.
  • 6 different detection filters.
  • Effective de-essing regardless of signal level.
  • Dry/wet knob.
  • Mac OS X (>=10.5) and Windows support.
  • 64bit compatibility both on Mac and Windows.
  • Audio Units VST2.4 and VST3 format.

Sybilla is available to purchase for 12.99 EUR.

Sleepy-Time DSP releases Lisp de-esser effect plugin

Sleepy-Time DSP has released Lisp, a level-independent sibilance processor for Windows.

Sleepy-Time DSP Lisp
Lisp is a new type of de-esser that automatically tracks the volume and pitch of your audio to help reduce harsh sibilance issues quickly and easily.

Whether you use a traditional de-esser, sidechained compressor, dynamic EQ, or even edit your tracks manually, cleaning up sibilance problems in your vocals can get pretty tedious. Lisp is new type of de-esser that aims to speed-up this process with its automatic sibilance detection algorithm.

Internally tuned to the human vocal range, Lisp can automatically detect and lower annoying “ss”, “teh”, and “ch” sounds in your audio by tracking both the amplitude and pitch of its input in real-time. Just set the reduction amount and let Lisp do the rest!

Lisp features

  • Automatic sibilance detection.
  • Up to 20 dB of transparent reduction.
  • Manual mode for reducing specific frequencies.
  • Left, Right, Mid, and Side modes for de-essing stereo tracks.

Lisp for Windows (32/64-bit, VST2/VST3) is available as freeware.

Cakewalk announces CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier plugin + NAMM Sale

Cakewalk has announced the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier, with support for VST, Audio Units, and SONAR X2 Producer’s ProChannel.

This legendary vintage electro-optical tube compressor has been meticulously modeled and crafted by Cakewalk’s developers to deliver the classic, highly desirable sound heard on countless platinum recordings.

Cakewalk CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier
Cakewalk’s CA-2A emulation of the Teletronix LA-2A compressor.

Since the 1960s, professional engineers have relied on the unique characteristics of this tube-based compressor to work its magic on an array of different types of tracks. Cakewalk developers modeled this unit and originally made it available as a ProChannel module in their flagship DAW, SONAR, and then in late 2012 released the RE-2A version as a Propellerhead Rack Extension. Now with the announcement of the CA-2A, musicians, producers, and engineers can use this highly regarded DSP technology in any VST or AU compatible DAW – at a fraction of the cost and with all the modern technological conveniences.

The CA-2A is suitable for just about any audio material, but it particularly excels on vocal tracks, producing transparent musical results, while preserving the dynamic performance. It also sounds great on electric and acoustic guitars including bass instruments, as well as piano, wind instruments and other tracks needing a smooth rich texture.

Cakewalk developers have put a great deal of effort into the research and development of the CA-2A, and the plugin gets its legendary sound from a variety of different factors. Depending on the incoming program material, the modeled T4 circuit uses an electroluminescent panel to determine the exact attack time (around 10 milliseconds,) and an optical photo cell to determine the release time; all while carefully modeling the amplifier’s tubes and electro-optical device – just like the original hardware unit. The CA-2A also includes a Fast Resetting Photocell Memory feature that will allow the processor to respond with more agility than the original hardware unit when needed on material such as drums and slap bass.

In addition, the compressor serves as a “soft-knee” type slope with a fixed attack time of 10 milliseconds and a two-stage program-dependent release structure which results in warm analogue character. Unlike typical dynamics processors that have a fixed compression ratio across all frequencies, the CA-2A gain reduction varies at different frequencies. It also features an R37 control, true to the original hardware, where the compressors responsiveness to high frequencies can be adjusted. The R37 control has been a secret trick for many world-class engineers who use it as a natural de-esser- on vocals.

“With the CA-2A, we are excited to bring this critically acclaimed DSP technology to a broader range of musicians,” says Cakewalk Product Manager, Brian Desmond. “The response from the SONAR and Reason user base has been overwhelmingly positive, so it made perfect sense to make the CA-2A available to all VST or AU compatible DAWs.”

Cakewalk engineers have also implemented a side-chain function in the CA-2A, allowing the compressor to react to program material from one track, and apply it to another. This is an improvement that many mixing engineers will find useful for a wide variety of use cases, such as ducking or pumping of synth sounds in EDM.

CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier features

  • Meticulously modeled.
  • With only a few simple controls, it’s easy to use and provides instant gratification.
  • Warm, smooth and natural sounding compression characteristics.
  • Frequency-dependent gain reduction.
  • Compressor and Limiter modes.
  • Up to 40 dB of smooth gain reduction.
  • Sidechain input for ducking, de-essing and pumping.
  • Gain reduction CV output to modulate other effects.
  • Zero latency for real-time tracking and mixing.
  • Fully modeled “R37″ HF Pre-emphasis control.
  • VST, Audio Units & ProChannel compatible.

The CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier will be available in late January for $99 USD / £79 GBP / 99 EUR. Customers who previously purchased the PC2A (ProChannel Module) format can upgrade for $19.99 USD / £15.99 GBP / 19.99 EUR.

Cakewalk has also announced a NAMM special, offering a 20% discount on orders of $149 USD or more.

In honor of NAMM 2013, Cakewalk is offering all customers 20% savings on orders of $149 more. There’s never been a better time to upgrade your studio with critically-acclaimed products including SONAR X2 Producer upgrades, Z3TA+ 2 upgrades, expansion Packs, videos, and of course the new CA-2A Leveling Amplifier. Offer ends January 31st.
