As all video and audio professionals know, sibilance is an unavoidable problem in the recording process. Harsh esses can blight voiceovers and dialogue, so having a reliable and quick de-esser in your plugin arsenal is essential.

The accusonus De-Esser – part of the ERA Bundle Standard and Pro – is the quickest solution on the market. Traditional de-essers require you to target sibilant frequencies yourself. However, ERA De-Esser does this for you.
Remove sibilance with just the turn of a dial.
See the software detecting the S’s in your waveform, turn the dial and get the sibilant-free audio your work deserves in moments.

ERA De-Esser can be used in any audio environment. It’s easy to use and has an intuitive interface paired with a powerful processing algorithm. Therefore, it’s an indispensable tool for veterans and beginners alike

    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 if you’d like.

    Processing Dial

    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.

    Off/On Switch

    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.
