United Kingdom (July 8, 2024)—Techivation has launched an updated version of its T-De-Esser plug-in. Building on the original edition, released in July 2021 as the company’s first audio plug-in, the new MK2 edition is designed to control sibilance and harshness—and just as its predecessor was, the release is free.

T-De-Esser 2 is intended to be an intuitive De-Esser plug-in to aid in smoothing out high frequencies while preserving a natural and musical sound. According to Techivation, the MK2 release significantly improves upon the original in terms of both functionality and audio performance.
