SSL DeEss is a workflow-oriented correctional tool for precision sibilance reduction and high-frequency control – used to reduce excess sibilance and harsh mid-high frequency build-ups such as the 'ess' and 'shh' sounds in vocal takes.

Alongside workflow enhancements such as automatic auditioning and built-in brighten control for rejuvenating de-essed signals, DeEss uses a relative threshold algorithm: allowing you to change the input level of the signal without a destructive effect on the response of the de-esser. This also means that you can de-ess quiet sibilant events just as effectively as loud ones!

With DeEss, you can quickly target only the mid or side components of the signal, as well as toggling in automatic oversampling and lookahead options for a super-high-quality response. Not only this, DeEss features a range of carefully designed presets for different vocal types (Tenor, Alto, Soprano) and instrument processing.
