Default Lisping

Hi Guys,

I started using Symphonic Choirs recently, and no matter what I do, consonants like 's' 'x' 'c' in wordbuilder sound like the whole choir have a lisp. It sounds like a very strong de-esser.
Is there any solution for this?

You mean lithp?

Not something I think I have heard. Audio example?

Hehe, maybe!

So it happens basically every time I use these consonants.
Here is an example:

Hmmm, not really hearing anything wrong there.

What is the exact phrase you used?

I'm surprised that lisping is not more of a problem. I've put up with it for years. Adjusting the 'Voice properties' helps sometimes.

You've got to put in a lot of work to make them sound good. My preferred way of working is Votox and close mics, and then edit the hell out of each syllable...

Hey, thanks, using close mics was a good idea! I'm using Votox and started editing the syllables, but if you just listen to the 's' sound in the instruments/consonants/non-pitched ( not the multis ), it's still far more realistic than anything I could achieve with WB. I think I'll try replacing my 's' voices with that somehow.
