This amazing De-Esser lets you take care of sibilance issues with precision, so you keep the integrity of the track. SYBIL Evo gives you threshold, attack, decay, and ratio controls. You also get a variable side chain high pass frequency control, so you can do your magic on a wide range of vocal tracks. SYBIL Evo is easy to use and very effective.
• Tames sibilance precisely and effectively
• Threshold, attack, decay, and ratio controls

Antares Aspire Evo - Modify breathiness & raspiness of vocals
ASPIRE Evo is the world's first tool for modifying the breathiness of voices independently of the harmonic content. Whether it's reducing a bit of vocal rasp or increasing a bit of smokiness, ASPIRE allows for easy modifications that easily transform your voice without otherwise affecting the vocals harmonic characteristics.
Going into more detail, the vocal waveform is actually two different components. One, the one we usually think of as the primary element of vocal timbre, is the harmonic content generated by the process described above. However, there is a second component that is generated by the turbulence of the air rushing past the vocal chords. This component, aspiration noise, does not have harmonic content and can roughly be thought of as “breathiness.”
Aspiration noise presents itself in various ways, from a small amount of breathiness to a full-blown rasp. Of course it depends on the amount of noise and the style of a performance that you wish to achieve. A whole lot of roughness that would work well for screaming punk or roots blues might well be a problem for mainstream pop or a smooth ballad.
• Adds Breath and Rasp to your vocals
• Subtle yet effective vocal effect that won't change the basic characteristics of vocal
• Compatible with Mac and Windows operating systems

Cakewalk CA-2A - T-type leveling amplifier
Faithfully modeled after one of the most sought after studio compressors in history, the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier puts the silky, smooth sound of this highly desirable unit right into any VST or AU compatible DAW.
The purpose of the CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier is to limit the dynamic range of a signal by decreasing the amplitude of its transient peaks. The CA-2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier varies its gain in response to the level of the input signal. Large input signals result in less gain, therefore reducing or “compressing” the dynamic range of the signal.
In a typical mix of audio material, there are a few peaks that are much louder and powerful than the average signal. Increasing the overall volume would make these peaks exceed the maximum output level, causing unpleasant distortion in the music. Compression reduces the level of any peaks above the threshold so the average level can be boosted.
• Meticulously modeled
• Zero latency for real-time tracking and mixing
• Up to 40 dB of smooth, transparent gain reduction

Eisenberg Einklang - Expandable morphing synthesizer
EINKLANG is a synthesizer following a new paradigm of sound generation. Unlike traditional synthesizers, instead of synthesizing sounds according to a set of technical parameters like amplitude, frequency, and spectrum, EINKLANG re-synthesizes sounds using instrument models.
These instrument models cannot only be tweaked directly in their musical parameters, like loudness, pitch and timbre, but also be morphed from one tone color to another. These key features allow the user to think in plain sounds rather than mathematical equations and to control EINKLANG with few but very powerful musical parameters.
The instrument models are based on Artificial Intelligence Studio Technology (AIST) that allows synthesizers to understand the structures of sounds and remember specific nuances of different instruments. So the musician can concentrate on musical aspects, while the synthesizer does all of the underlying technical processing.
• Contains 270 tone colors for morphing
• 150 basic tone colors with sounds ranging from acoustic to synthetic
• 120 synth/lead tone colors from the full RED tone pack

More sonic control than you ever thought possible is now at your fingertips.
For those who never go further than switching from preset to preset or can't stand the idea of digging into a complex machine to get the best out of it, Symptohm might not be the best choice. However, for those creatively-minded of you in line with the Ohm Force spirit, here is the sonic equivalent of a gold mine.
