spiff is oeksound's take on transient control. Following the success of their 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.
Spiff handles transients the same way soothe handles resonances. By reacting only where needed, spiff is capable of attenuating or even removing transients from a sound.
Effective on mouth clicks, consonants and pops, but also on the attack of a guitar while retaining the top end sheen.
Engaging the boost mode turns spiff into a powerful transient enhancer. This allows you to bring elements to the front without increasing the RMS level.
A lot of work was put into making the algorithm accurate, versatile, and yet intuitive. For spiff oeksound redesigned their interface to make for a quick and focused user experience.
Spiff operates perfectly with minimal adjusting, and can be left on a track without the need for constant readjustments to compensate for changes in the audio material. At the same time, you can dig into the processing needed.
The OpenGL-accelerated graph lets you see where and when spiff is at work.
The EQ-section lets you zone in on frequencies that require more attention. Use the delta toggle and per-band cue to hear just what is being affected. Oversampling and increased resolution are also there, if your CPU has what it takes!
Presenting a new way of controlling transients, spiff opens up an infinite number of possibilities for sound manipulation.
Even on more extreme settings, spiff retains the original character of the sound, without introducing any artefacts.
Remove all attack from a piano, turn guitar parts into a lapsteel. Make a picked guitar sound fingerpicked. Remove the close mics from a drum recording. spiff is your one-stop solution for transients.
