Vocal De-Esser From Antares Is Out Now

The makers of Auto-Tune®, Antares, have announced their new release, Vocal De-Esser.

Following on from Vocal Reverb, released last year, Vocal De-Esser is, in some way, the natural next step for Antares. The company has long been a proponent of artificial intelligence, and Vocal De-Esser looks to continue that trend.

Vocal De-Esser uses innovative low-latency vocal processing, artificial intelligence, and a custom-trained model that uses machine learning to detect and control sibilance in the human voice.

In doing so, Vocal De-Esser is specialized in removing undesirable “Ess” in a vocal recording and also doing I real-time without “compromising the vocal characteristics or tone” – smoothing out the vocals in the process.

The GUI includes two specific Sibilant Controls for managing (S, Sh, Z) and (T, Ch,K) vocal sounds, a Solo button for monitoring sibilance alone, a Link button for connecting the two sibilant controls, and an Assist button for activating the AI function.

Vocal De-Esser Key Features
