oeksound have made a name for themselves with their incredible audio processing products, soothe and spiff - meeting a need most of us didn't realise we could resolve. The founder of oeksound, Olli Keskinen has recently been interviewed for the KVR blog - offering some insight into Finnish music, the companies history, and how he developed their excellent range of products - starting out at the Sibelius Academy while also working on live sound.
Here's a bit of info on their plugins:
spiff is our take on transient control. Following the success of our first plug-in, soothe, spiff was designed to fill in the gap of the sound engineer's toolkit. It has been designed to cut or boost transients with extreme detail. Similar to soothe, spiff analyses the incoming signal and applies the processing only on the parts of the signal that contain the transient information. This keeps the rest of the signal intact and free from side effects.
soothe2 is a dynamic resonance suppressor. It identifies problematic resonances on the fly and applies matching reduction automatically. This results in a smoother, more balanced sound and saves you from having to notch out the frequencies by hand. The reduction kicks in only when and where needed without affecting the nearby frequency areas. This preserves the timbre of the original sound source and results in transparent treatment with minimal artifacts.
