De-Essing by Phase Cancellation:
SPL has developed a circuit technology that combines efficient de-essing with maximum ease of use. De-essing already during recording spares a lot of time in comparison to the subsequent search for the S-sounds in post production.
The DeS automatically adjusts itself to the relevant frequencies and hones in on them so that only the range of the S-sound is processed and neighbouring frequencies remain untouched.
This range is phase-inverted and mixed back into the original signal, which acoustically deletes the S-sound. The DeS therefore works unobstrusively and sound-neutral.
The DeS features our Auto-Threshold which automatically adjusts the threshold if the input level fluctuates due to varying distance to the microphone which leads to fluctuating input levels. With Auto-Threshold engaged, the de-essing intensity remains constant at the value you set – a great help not only for untrained speakers/singers in the studio and live.
With conventional de-essers using compressor technology, the processing intensity decreases as the distance to the microphone increases to which compressors or limiters then react by letting the S sounds reappear. The disadvantage of weaker de-essing – bad enough in itself – therefore also leads to undesired effects in the subsequent processing. Auto-Threshold prevents these disadvantages from occurring in the first place.
