FabFilter Pro-DS is an intelligent de-esser plug-in. Featuring ingenious vocal sibilance detection, powerful processing options and insightful metering, truly transparent de-essing becomes effortless with FabFilter Pro-DS.

The unique newly developed Single Vocal algorithm in Pro-DS has an uncanny ability to separate sibilance from non-sibilance in individual vocal recordings. It almost always works right away without the need for complex manual tuning, making the de-esser very easy to set up. Alternatively, the classic Allround detection implements a custom side-chain filter path, tuned to perfection for de-essing full mixes or high-frequency limiting of any material.

The intuitive interface in FabFilter Pro-DS makes it easy to find the right settings quickly with great visual feedback. A large real-time level display shows a scrolling input waveform and highlights the parts affected by the de-essing algorithm, showing you exactly how much processing is going on. Finding the right Threshold setting becomes a trivial task with the circular side-chain input meter around the Threshold knob. In addition, the side-chain filter slider displays a real-time spectrum analyzer, enabling you to easily zoom in on problem frequencies. Advanced GPU-powered graphics acceleration ensures seamless animation and also keeps the main CPU free to do audio processing.

To fine-tune the sound, FabFilter Pro-DS offers optional look-ahead (up to 15 milliseconds) and adjustable stereo linking. In addition to general wide-band processing, linear-phase split-band processing is also available. Together with optional mid/side processing (affecting only the mono or stereo content) and up to four times linear-phase oversampling, Pro-DS is capable of highly transparent de-essing in the most demanding situations. All this power combined with its innovative, easy-to-use interface makes Pro-DS the perfect de-essing solution for any mixing and mastering job.

Key Features:

  • Highly intelligent 'Single Vocal' detection, and classic 'Allround' detection.
  • Transparent, program-dependent compression/limiting.
  • Adjustable Threshold, Range and High-Pass and Low-Pass side-chain filtering settings.
  • Wide Band or linear-phase Split Band processing.
  • Optional look-ahead time up to 15 ms.
  • Freely adjustable stereo linking.
  • Optional mid-only or side-only processing.
  • Up to four times linear-phase oversampling.
  • Real-time de-essing display, clearly showing the affected parts of processed audio.
  • Side-chain input meter, making it easy to choose a good Threshold value.
  • Real-time spectrum analyzer built into the HP/LP filter controller.
  • GPU-powered graphics acceleration.
  • High-quality 64-bit internal processing.
  • Double-click text entry of parameter values.
  • Large and compact interface sizes (with or without the real-time level display).
  • Stereo and mono plug-ins available.
  • Supports common Pro Tools hardware control surfaces, such as Avid ICON D-Control and D-Command.
  • All the usual FabFilter features you've come to expect: perfectly fine-tuned knobs and controllers, interactive MIDI Learn, undo/redo and A/B switch, Smart Parameter Interpolation for smooth parameter transitions, an extensive help file with interactive help hints, sample accurate automation, advanced optimization, and more.

Pro-DS

I just don't where to begin, everyone know what is a de-esser.
I have a lot : waves renaissance de-esser, waves classic de-esser, nomad factory, cubase stock plugin...And maybe a few other i forgot.
when i saw the price of the Pro-Ds i have shocked, who can ask so much for a simple de-esser ?
Then i have the opportunity to acquire the full fabfilter bundle. each plugin one by one. the first one was ONE, it was my first synth, i learn a lot with it.
Then a few days ago i have try the fabfilter de-esser and i understood why it cost so much !
it is VERY use to use, i have a work with other de-esser brand and i 'd never reach what the fabfilter can do !
It took me 20 seconds, no manual, no tutorial, just insert and listen, press the audition button to adjust the correction and IT S DONE, IT DO THE WORK PERFECTLY, the sound is clean and transparent !!!
I can only recommend to download the demo and try it.There is nothing else to say about this plugin.
P-E-R-F-E-C-T !
If a V2 comes i don't know what they could add to it...If a V2 comes i don't know what they could add to it...it's very disturbing for me to realize the tool i need and i'd searched during all these years was just here.Do yourself a favor, buy the complete bundle during a sale, don't wait about another magic plugin because i think no one will be able to do better.

5/5 for the ENTIRE BUNDLE.
These plugin change my vision and my way to approach sound design and mix.
