Eiosis tell us that version 1.1 of their EÂ² Deesser brings a variable lookahead delay, which allows getting very smooth responses and unprecedented processing transparency for a de-esser. Hereâ€™s what they have to say about it in their own words:
You can choose between zero delay latency, a short latency or a long latency. The lookahead value is adjusted according to the detection and latency parameters, while keeping fixed plugin latency for the host automatic delay compensation.
The sibilants attacks can be then perfectly detected without using a low response parameter, i.e. fast attack and release behaviors. Thus you can obtain a very smooth and transparent de-essing process : even with extreme sibilant reduction, the voice always sounds natural, without any abruptness or "lisp" effect.
For live or tracking situations, the zero delay latency remains a very efficient and transparent option, when extreme sibilant reduction is not necessary. Pricing and Availability:
