The SPL Dual-Band De-Esser uses two frequency bands that can be used independently or jointly. Two de-esser stages increase processing effectiveness without introducing audible artifacts. Focused processing with high and low bands makes it possible to process sibilant sounds with great precision. Furthermore, input signals are automatically adjusted so the processing is uniform, regardless of the distance between source and microphone. The Male/Female modes adapt processing in the lower band to male or female voices. Now, the Dual Band De-Esser DeS is also available in 500 Series format.
You can use the two processing stages separately or jointly. They are connected in series as independent de-esser modules. The Low-Band De-Esser (Lo-S) is set first in the chain. If both de-essers are engaged, there is interaction between them: a signal already processed with the Low-Band De-Esser is different from the raw material that the High-Band De-Esser would otherwise process.
The Male/Female switch allows you to adjust the Low-Band De-Esser to the type of voice being processed. These values have been determined by practical experience, so that the processor adapts better to gender. Nevertheless, you cannot take for granted that these settings will suit every single male and female voice. Consider the Male/Female function as an additional tool to help you set the Low-Band De-Esser more precisely according to your needs. Always trust your ears to find the best settings.

This has been a key addition to my vocal chain… telefunken 251/neve preamp, then into this deesser before I hit the compressor & daw… it really lets the vocals soar without being so sibilant, yet the S’s and T’s don’t sound slushy at all!
The smoothest de-esser I’ve had the privilege of using. I love it!
