Loud and annoyingly sharp sibilants can become a problem with many speech and vocal recordings. They are often caused by the human voice itself and hence inevitable.

Many conventional de-essing systems work as threshold-based, frequency-selective compression with the major downsides of level dependency and frequency splitting.

Instead, the Jünger Audio De-Esser applies dynamic filtering that ‘rides’ on the source signal and remains completely independent of the absolute signal level.

Sibilance is reduced in relation to the overall voice energy and not to an absolute value.

As a bonus, there is no frequency splitting, leaving the sonic integrity untouched.

The De-Esser is a set-and-forget tool with minimal user intervention and incredibly natural sounding results.
