Remove sibilance and harshness, fast

You can use T-De-Esser to:

  • Remove harshness from sound sources that were closely mic'd.
  • Manage sibilance in vocals and dialog in a transparent manner.
  • Treat irregular tonal balance caused by the poor recording quality.
  • Reduce the glare from unnecessarily bright guitar and piano recordings.
  • Tame piercing synth sounds.
  • Control the high-frequencies in overheads' transients, such as snare, hi-hats, or clash.
  • Give more dynamic range to your tracks while mastering, due to the reduction of unnecessary high frequencies.

T-De-Esser can streamline your audio project workflow by saving you both vital time and effort. It works as effectively on individual tracks as it does on buses. It performs admirably in a wide range of implementations, from sound design and post-production to the most demanding of mastering applications.

Graphic user interface (GUI)

Visuals can distract your hearing, digital graphs are very likely to affect your decision-making when it comes to setting the values. T-De-Esser, however, helps you just stay focused on the output sound, rather than how things change visually as you tweak the settings.

Whilst there are only a few knobs and buttons on the GUI, each has a huge impact on the audio sound improvement. Less is more, so just to avoid getting caught in the trap of making infinite, minuscule tweaks, we made sure only to have the essential options available for you on the GUI.

The options available are designed in a way to quickly give you a pleasant sound in just a few adjustments.

Quick yet powerful.

TT-De-Esser has been designed with simplicity in mind. It is fast to set up and easy to use, yet allows you to adjust the processing to your needs.

Turning the processing knob starts the plug-in's operation, you then set how intense you want to go according to your taste. There are 4 frequency bands available to choose between, choose depending on where the harshness and sibilance are coming from.

Available as

Windows 7 and up as 32 / 64-bit VST and VST3, and 64-bit AAX (PT11 and up).

Mac OS X 10.10 (Yosemite) – macOS 10.15 (Big Sur) as 32/64-bit VST, VST3 and AU, and 64-bit AAX, Intel, and M1 Rosetta 2 Macs.

Ultra-transparent and simple to use and in all plugin formats from the start! Also, for this plugin to be free and imo already better than all of the market brand de-essers! Thank you and great job Techivation LTD.

Excelent De-esser.

Very clean and natural correction and you can get everything smoother with the sharpness and intensity parameters.

Amazing De-Esser, really impressed by the sole sound of this tool. Different from common De-Essers, the fact that it acts more like a volume rider rather than a compressor is game-changer and creates a very versatile tool, not only for sibilances but all kind of dynamic control appliances. I would say the 3 best features of this De-Esser are: sound transparency, ease of use and the fact that such a powerful tool is free.

Great job Techivaion.

I was a big fan of another well-known de-esser, and that made me doubt if I really needed another de-esser...

But literally after 30 seconds with the T-De-Esser that doubt left my mind. This is the most transparent de-esser I've ever heard, and the most effective at the same time. Where other de-esser start to sound artificially fast, this one stays completely natural and transparant.

Since I downloaded T-De-Esser I never touched the other wellknown one again! And I HATE changing plugins so that surprised even myself a lot.

HIGHLY recommended.

Best sounding de esser I've tried.

Takes the esses down without making them sound weird at all. This is the first time I find a plugin like this. Pretty amazing.
