De-essing without the stressing.
The Selig DeEsser is an advanced vocal De-esser that not only allows you to accurately detect and reduce sibilance in a vocal track, but also to extract all sibilance to its own mixer channel in real time. Despite this sophistication, using the Selig DeEsser couldn't be easier, and many users will find instant success with the default settings! There are no thresholds to set, no EQs to fine-tune, and no filters of any sort in the audio path. This provides you with the cleanest signal and simplest setup ever possible in a de-esser.
Don't let the Selig DeEsser’s simplicity fool you.
While the Selig DeEsser excels at simple and accurate sibilance reduction, its ability to perform unique sibilance extraction (V-S mode) is what sets it apart from the rest of the pack. V-S mode routes all sibilance to its own channel in real time, allowing you to process the Voice and Sibilance channels separately in any way you see fit. This opens up new possibilities like adding brilliance to the Voice channel without worrying about increasing sibilance, adding reverb on just the Voice channel to avoid having the sibilance 'splat' in the reverb. Or you can filter, compress, and EQ the Sibilance channel however you like to tame it and make it more consistent without affecting the rest of the vocal.
The Selig DeEsser gives you all the power you need to precisely control your vocal’s sibilants in ways you may have never imagined. With its simple ‘no threshold’ interface and uncanny ability to accurately detect sibilance using its unique Intelligent Sibilance Detection algorithm, the Selig DeEsser is the perfect tool for all your vocal DeEssing needs.
