Esspresso – professional de-esser arrives, but is going to take a lot of CPU

This audio effect is an advanced de-esser with an intuitive user interface. The uniqueness of Esspresso is that the detection frequency range isn’t coupled with the suppressors frequency range. That means you can listen to a specific frequency and compress another one, which is often what you’ll want from a professional de-esser. With a fast and accurate frequency response view, you will easily get full control over annoying S-sounds that ruin the mix.

Noteworthy features:

  • Audiobus 2 compatible (works in iOS9)
  • Inter app audio compatible (IAA)
  • Detector sensitivity gain
  • Visual reduction RMS
  • Visual detector RMS
  • Suppressor can work as allpass, bandpass and highpass
  • Load / Save presets
  • Documentation

Note! Esspresso consumes quite a bit of CPU power and iPad 4 or later is recommended.
