For Gear Heads:
McDSP DE555 is a new generation of de-essing technology, providing transparent, precise de-essing with unique flexibility.
Intelligent signal analysis allows the DE555 to effectively de-ess at any signal level – no manual input threshold adjustment required.
Other options include continuously adjustable ratio and release controls to fine- tune the de-essing amount, plus a high frequency (HF) only mode for reducing the signal level of only the ‘sss’ and not the original dialog.
Key filter options include high pass and band pass filtering. A unique focus control further enhances the key filter’s ability to separate ‘essing’ from actual dialog. The key filter output can also be monitored.
Real-time displays of de-essing amounts and key filter response enable quick and easy setup.
McDSP DE555 is a de-esser Plug In for helping to control those harsh Sibilant vocal tracks. I love the key filter feature on the DE555. It really helps you zero in on those key frequencies to get your sibilance under control.
