A good de-esser like spitfish

Post by redglass » Tue Sep 27, 2016 8:10 am

I am working mostly with Live 64 Bit and use de-essing for dialogue editing and mixing.
The build in one in Live is not good enough IMHO.

Spitfish from http://www.digitalfishphones.com/main.p ... &subItem=5

works only in 32 Bit (Windows) but is very good.

Would love to have a build in version that really works as spitfish de-esser.

Yep, those good old Digitalfishphones are fantastic. Too sad they won't never be updated to 64bit.
I'm using Tonebooster TB FIX for de-essing. It's not its former purpose, it's a nice dynamic EQ actually... so it's good for de-essing.
They also sell a deesser called Sibalance. I haven't tested it, but you can grab a demo. And those plugins are stupidly cheap.

I'll check them, thanks. I am just wondering why the Ableton de-esser does not work so well.
Is there a roadmap to improve the Ableton built in de-esser?

That would be amazing!

DMG Essence would be another one I would recommend, easy to use and capable of a whole lot more than just De-essing.

There's no built-in deesser in Live, it's Compressor actually, with a sidechained filter.

Izotope Nectar is a VST effect I've used for cleaning up VO/ADR for so long, I really haven't felt the need to try anything newer. Demo version available

That's true. But it is named De-esser.

Doesn't the compressor with the HP filter side chain does this?

Or do you want something like Fabfilter Pro DS which is "smarter"?

Spitfish. That brings back memories. :)

I did try out a 32bit "shell" for 64bit systems a while back. Computer music gave it away free about a year ago iirc. You simply drop the shell in as normal and open the 32bit pluggin inside it.

Perhaps some ingeniuous bod can use M4L to create a more stable native shell for these sorts of things? Especially if you cant get hold of the CM one
