What is a De-esser?
A de-esser is an effect VST plugin that attenuates or reduces sibilance or harsh high frequency audio. This high frequency audio that needs de-essing can come from all types of different sound sources, but mostly comes from vocals and dialogue. The letters S, F, X, SH, and Cs create this sibilance that needs to be attenuated.
