FabFilter #Pro-DS

Intelligent and transparent

Even when using the best mics, pre-amps and converters, sibilance in vocal recordings can easily get over-accentuated during post-processing like compression or saturation. But don't worry, FabFilter Pro-DS comes to the rescue!

Jeff Ellis

FabFilter Pro-DS is my new favorite vocal de-esser. [...] The intelligent detection and transparency of the plug-in is second to none and again the interface is beautiful and efficient.

Pro-DS intelligent algorithms

Accurate detection

With its highly intelligent 'Single Vocal' detection algorithm, FabFilter Pro-DS accurately identifies sibilance in vocal recordings and attenuates it transparently.

When using the 'Allround' mode, Pro-DS becomes a great tool for high-frequency limiting of any material, like drums or even full mixes. Try it yourself!
