      • Give more dynamic range to your tracks while mastering, due to the reduction of unnecessary harsh frequencies

    • T-De-Esser Plus 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 efficiently in a wide range of implementations, from sound design and post-production to the most demanding of mastering applications.

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

    • The magic

      Unlike the majority of De-Esser plug-ins available on the market, T-De-Esser gives a pure natural sound while smoothing the high-frequencies.

      The only noticeable difference will be the
      removal of harshness.

    • Graphic user interface (GUI)

      Visuals can distract your hearing, digital graphs are very likely to affect your decision-making when it comes to audio editing. T-De-Esser, however, helps you just stay focused on keeping it as simple as possible visually and help you focus on the output sound.

      The T-De-Esser Plus has the same functionality as the original T-De-Esser, but the interface now displays the premium features of the T-De-Esser Pro. The T-De-Esser Plus has one of the Pro features activated, the ‘Audition’ feature, which is free to use.

      We’ve added the most advanced cutting-edge features to the T-De-Esser Pro that’ll help you with significant sound quality improvements. 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 with just a few tweaks.

    • Quick yet powerful

      T-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, depending on where the harshness and sibilance are coming from.

      The ‘Audition’ (Delta-listening) feature in T-De-Esser Plus allows you to listen to the selected frequency range modes, as well as letting you listen to the audio sounds that are being processed, by the plug-in. This helps when it comes to making specific comparisons.

    "Love the T-De-Esser! Super smooth and natural. Love the flexibility as well! Awesome plugin! Well done!"

    Eryck BryEryck BryMusic Producer - Mixing Engineer

    "While my production approach and sound design can be extreme, when it comes to mixing, I like to take a more subtle approach and the Techivation T-De-Esser is such a great tool to help me with that. The GUI and functionality is incredible and not like anything I’ve used before."

    Marlon GibbonsMarlon GibbonsMusic Composer

    "The T-De-Esser does a really dope 'job' at controlling the “s” sound in a very natural way! I love the options to control different frequency bands where dessing is typically needed and the interface is very simple and intuitive. I think they’ve got something with this plug-in, I plan to use it all the time."

    Ivo SotirovIvo SotirovMixing Engineer

    "T-De-Essr is super fresh and funky! I love the 4 buttons at the bottom right. It makes things fast as you can just dive in and get exactly what you need. It's creativity and utility. I see it as a tool for both. Super utilitarian tool and also can be a very creative one. It's a great plugin!"

    Louis Henry SarmientoLouis Henry SarmientoSonic Vista Studios

    "When I first tried the T-De-Esser, I loved how it sounded. Now they have added control of additional features, and it will put this in a league of its own. I especially love the new audition feature and the ability to control the attack. The saturation option is also very unique. I can see this being used a lot as an audiosuite plugin in Pro Tools. You should definitely try this plugin if you havent already!"

    Daniel HolsingerDaniel HolsingerMusic Producer - Mixing Engineer

    "T-De-Esser Pro is easy to use yet comprehensive enough to dial in the best tone for the vocals. I love the grittier tone I can get out of this de-esser. If I push hard enough, it adds that extra flavor to the vocal besides doing what it is supposed to do. T-De-Esser Pro will be part of my desert island tool kit from now on!"

    Matthew SimMatthew SimMusic Producer - Mixing Engineer

    "T-De-Esser Pro is one of the best de esser plugins out there. The multiple frequency selection range helps to isolate the problem areas fast. Not only does it sound transparent but the saturation can be used creatively as well!.” "
