The key advantages

  • Tame harsh 's,' 'sh,' and 'ch' sounds in high frequencies, resulting in smoother and more intelligible vocals.

  • Achieve pristine drum hits for hi-hats, snare, claps, and more, by eliminating harshness and seamlessly fitting them into your mixes.

  • Clean up your tracks' high frequencies during mastering to achieve the loudest sound with the highest quality.

  • Fix harshness from your instrument recordings, such as piano, synths, strings, etc. making sure they’re sounding pleasant to ear.

  • Real-time processing capabilities make it suitable for live performances, where quick adjustments can be made to address sibilance issues on the fly.

  • Inject an analog warmth and presence into your tracks, with ease.

Key Features

  • Sensitivity

    Controls the threshold of spectral compression. The threshold for the selected frequency range is set relatively to the overall signal level. Thus, the plugin operation is independent of the input level.

  • Strength

    Controls the ratio and the maximum gain reduction of spectral compression.

  • Softness

    Controls the amount of spectral smoothing and the soft knee width of spectral compression.

  • Fast, Med, Slow modes

    Fast sets the response speed to prioritise preserving transients over smoothing the processing in time. Medium Mode sets the response speed to balance preserving transients with smoothing the processing in time. Slow Mode sets the response speed to prioritise smoothing the processing in time over preserving transients.

  • Air control

    Boosts the presence of the selected frequency range by mixing in additional harmonics.

  • Dry/wet mix

    Controls the dry/wet balance of the plugin.

  • Frequency Slider

    Limits plugin processing to the range specified. Use this control to target the problematic frequencies of your signal.

  • Diff & Filter

    These buttons let you to hear the difference between the original and processed audio signals, helping you fine-tune the adjustments being made to the frequencies.

  • Input-output level meters

    View the audio levels of the input and output signals before and after processing. These meters provide real-time feedback on the input and output levels, allowing you to monitor the changes in amplitude that occur during the spectral shaping process.

  • Gain control

    Controls the amount of make-up gain applied to the signal.

  • Scalable user interface

    The interface scaling feature in M-De-Esser allows you to customize the size of the GUI to suit your preferences and optimize your workflow. With a range of scaling options available, from 80% to 150%, you can personalize the interface to match your visual and working style.

  • Internal On/Off Switch

    The plug-in features a dedicated bypass/on control, which allows for the swift enabling or bypassing of the effect. This user-friendly control is designed to help avoid potential clicks or audio artefacts that may occur when toggling the effect on or off directly within the DAW host.

  • Undo/redo options

    The M-De-Esser plug-in comes equipped with the handy feature of built-in 'Undo' and 'Redo' options, providing added peace of mind while working on your audio processing. With these functions, you can easily revert to previous settings or redo changes that were made in error, saving time and eliminating the stress of potentially losing valuable adjustments.

  • A/B Switch

    The A/B buttons provide a convenient way to compare different options and find the optimal setting for your audio processing needs. With just a click, you can easily switch between two different versions of the same processing chain and compare the results.

  • Tooltips

    A handy 'tooltips' option that you can enable or disable from the plugin's menu. When this option is enabled, you can see a brief description of each part of the user interface by simply holding your mouse over that particular section. Tooltips are an excellent way to quickly learn about the various controls and settings in the plugin, making it easier to navigate and use the interface effectively.
