Introducing the latest release by Sonible – smart:deess!  smart:deess is the first AI de-esser to combine phoneme detection with advance spectral de-essing.  Thanks to the artificial intelligence powering its detection and spectral processing shaping the respective phonemes rather than just “turning them down”, smart:deess delivers more natural results.

Where other de-essers just reduce volume – smart:deess goes far deeper and creates a more natural, better balanced sound. By harnessing the power of a fully trained neural network, smart:deess identifies the exact start and end points of phonemes without the need to set a threshold. And thanks to its ability to process the entire phoneme using spectral processing, you’ll never want to go back to your old de-esser.

With smart:deess, tedious clip-gaining of sibilants is history.
