Nomad Factory Blue Tubes DeEsser DS-2S
The BT De-esser DS-2S is a stereo de-esser with vintage controls and sound. This deesser is designed to tame the harshness of certain vocal sounds, specifically "ess" sounds (hence, the name). However, this device can be useful in controlling the level of other sibilant vocal sounds as well, such as "t", "sh" or "f" to name a few.
A de-esser works like a frequency-specific compressor. In fact, the DS2S is essentially a compressor driven by hi-pass/band-pass filters. It reduces the offending high frequencies when the level of those frequencies exceeds the threshold. Threshold and Frequency sliders are provided, as well as a Listen selector switch to hear only the frequencies being de-essed. The DS-2S is the ideal way to take that unwanted sizzle out of your vocal tracks.
