Oeksound has announced the release of a new adaptive transient processor plugin for Windows and Mac, Spiff.
Following the success of Soothe, Spiff was designed to fill in the gap of the sound engineer’s toolkit by offering a new way of controlling transients, opening up an infinite number of possibilities for sound manipulation.
It has been designed to cut or boost transients with extreme detail. Similar to oeksound’s first plug-in, soothe, spiff analyses the incoming signal and applies the processing only on the parts of the signal that contain the transient information. This keeps the rest of the signal intact and free from side effects.
spiff handles transients the same way soothe handles resonances. By reacting only where and when needed, spiff is capable of attenuating or even removing transient information from a sound. Effective on mouth noises, hard consonants, clicks and pops, it can also be used for example to soften the pick attack from a guitar recording while retaining the top end sheen. Engaging the boost mode turns spiff into a powerful transient enhancer. This allows you to bring elements to the front of a mix without increasing the RMS level, or to boost fundamentals from drums without additional boominess.
Spiff (VST/AU/AAX) is available for the intro price of 99 EUR until April 30th, 2018. Regular price is 149 EUR. A free trial version is available (requires iLok account).
