The Auto-Dynamic De-Esser removes undesired sibilant frequencies in a simple and musical way with the S-removal based on phase cancellation which does not compromise the timbre and natural character of the recorded vocal track.
The De-Esser uses a unique technology to reduce sibiliance in a mix or on vocal tracks. It automatically detects and hones in on the sibilant frequencies leaving neighboring frequencies unaffected. These S-sounds are mixed back into the main signal phase-inverted to cancel out the sibilance.
The result is a sound-neutral, inconspicuous and extremely effective process. Even at high S-Reduction values the de-essing has an egligible effect on the character and timbre of the voice.
How it works
The Auto Dynamic De-Esser monitors the S-frequency spectrum and automatically detects the sibilant frequencies. The de-ess bandwidth is set so narrowly around the range of the sibilance that neighbouring frequencies remain unaffected.
The detected sibiliance is mixed back into the main signal phase-inverted so that only the S-sounds are cancelled. The S-reduction control sets the intensity of the S-reduction.
