The Oxford SuprEsser DS is a
highly-featured professional De-Esser AAX DSP plug-in for use with Avid S3L
live consoles and Pro Tools|HDX. With its low latency of sub 2ms, SuprEsser DS
is perfect for live applications or live tracking in Pro Tools.
There is a simple mode for quick
fixes, but also an advanced mode for increased functionality and fine-tuning.
The combination of an intuitive FFT display and three listen modes enables the
user to easily see and hear exactly where the problem frequencies are, allowing
the rapid reduction or removal of the offending audio.
Additional features include
Automatic Level Tracking, Linear Phase Filtering and a Wet/Dry blend control
for final balancing. More info...

The Oxford SuprEsser DS is designed for the
treatment of sibilance and fricatives in vocals, and the treatment of unwanted
whistles and 'spirant' artefacts associated with wind instruments. For the most
natural sounding results, the SuprEsser de-esses only the frequency band you
set - so you won't end up with an over-de-essed lisp-like voice with all the
top end gone!
Detailed visual feedback is provided thanks to the
highly intuitive graphical display, allowing quick identification of the
frequencies that need treatment and where to set the threshold. The threshold
level and peak hold levels of the user-definable band are shown on the graph,
alongside the FFT display of the narrow band signal, which includes retention
of the peak level and the frequency containing the most energy.
At the heart of the Oxford SuprEsser DS is an enhanced
version of the compressor section of the Oxford Dynamics plug-in, which is
renowned amongst professional users for delivering precise and transparent
control of peaks. Around this is built a pair of cross-over filters, modelled
on the Oxford EQ, to make the compressor react only to the defined frequency
Three listen modes allow the user to listen to the
mix, the output of the band-pass filter ('Inside') or the output of the
band-reject filter ('Outside').
Careful thought has been put into making the Oxford
SuprEsser DS extremely easy and quick to use. Once the frequency band has been
defined, simply lower the threshold fader until the gain reduction meter starts
to kick in. The plug-in then automatically tracks the general signal level and
the threshold follows accordingly so that it gives the same relative amount of
gain reduction as the signal level rises or falls. This is perfect for vocals
where, for example, a vocalist is louder in the chorus than the verse, but you
want to apply the same relative amount of de-essing, and not over de-ess in the
chorus. This Auto Level Tracking mode lets the SuprEsser do all the hard work.
It can also be switched off for a fixed threshold.

In its default mode of operation, the Oxford
SuprEsser DS feeds the defined 'Band' signal to the compressor to affect only
this narrow band signal. The result is that the compressor reacts only to
specific frequency components when they reach a specific threshold, and applies
compression only to these specific frequency components, leaving the rest of
the spectrum untouched. 'Wide' can also be selected to allow wide-band
compression reacting to only specfic frequencies or any combination of Band and
Wide defining 'when the compressor reacts' and 'what it compresses' (narrow or
The Oxford SuprEsser DS comes complete with many
presets to act as good starting points, alternatively the advanced section
gives full access to all controls for precise correction, or even creative use.
