In this free video tutorial brought to you in with the support of Plugin Alliance, Pro Tools Expert team member Julian Rodgers demonstrates using SPL's De-sser Plug-in. An extremely effective de-esser which is very simple to set up.
Unlike traditional de-ssers which are based on frequency-conscious compression, the SPL de-esser uses a process based on phase cancellation. This gives an unobtrusive de-essing effect which is very simple to set up.
Auditioning Difference In The Pro Tools Mixer
The SPL de-esser doesn't have a difference button. This is understandable as a plug in this simple really doesn't need one but to really hear what this processor achieves Julian sets up a way to audition the difference between the dry signal and the de-esseer using the pro Tools Mixer. See how in the video.
