Sibilance is an unavoidable problem in the recording process. Harsh esses can drastically reduce listenability in voiceovers and dialogue. De-essing is a way to fix these problems, but is difficult and time-consuming if done manually.
The accusonus De-Esser is the quickest solution on tarket, available as part of the ERA Bundle Standard and Pro. Traditional de-ess tools require you to target a sibilance frequency range yourself, but ERA De-Esser does this for you.

How to use the ERA De-Esser plugin
De-essing vocals and voice recordings with the accusonus De-Esser is simple. It has a single dial that controls the level of de-essing applied and most of the time that’s the only parameter you’ll need to worry about. However, there are a few more controls that allow you to tweak your processing. See how to use a De Esser:
At the center of the ERA De-Esser workflow is the processing dial. This dial controls the level of de-essing being applied to your audio – simple!
The Output fader is a gain control which allows you to boost or cut the level of ERA De-Esser’s output.
The Off/On switch bypasses the vocal De-Esser quickly and easily.
Diff (or Difference) is a very useful button. When activated it lets you listen to what De-Esser is removing from your audio – great for referencing.
Mode sets the band type used when applying de-essing to your signal, choose from Normal or Broad to de-ess a smaller or larger band on the frequency spectrum.
The ERA De-Esser pairs well with our Plosive Remover – get rid of harsh sibilance and pesky plosives almost instantly.
