FabFilter has released a new addition to its line of effect plug-ins: FabFilter Pro-DS, a de-esser plug-in.
It features vocal sibilance detection, processing options and metering.
The newly developed Single Vocal algorithm in Pro-DS is designed with the ability to separate sibilance from non-sibilance in individual vocal recordings. The company says that "it almost always works right away without the need for complex manual tuning." Alternatively, the classic Allround detection implements a custom side-chain filter path, tuned for de-essing full mixes or high-frequency limiting.
