Software Compatibility

Most software is compatible with both Mac and Windows computers, but check to make sure.

If you're using Pro Tools, AAX plug-ins (or RTAS for older versions) are what you need. Most other Mac DAWs support AU plug-ins. VST is compatible with a number of Mac and Windows programs. Be sure you choose plug-ins that work with your DAW!

Next-generation De-esser!

NOTE: This product requires an iLok (not included) for authorization. Please call your Sweetwater Sales Engineer if you have questions.

Just when you thought de-essing was just de-essing, McDSP took it up a notch. With the DE555, you'll have a full-throttle de-essing solution, giving you a transparent tool to get precise results. The intelligent signal analysis in the DE555 lets you effectively de-ess no matter the signal level, with no manual input-threshold adjustment needed. That will save you time. You also have the ability to continuously adjust the ratio and release controls, so you can fine-tune the de-essing amount. Plus, there's a high-frequency only mode that lets you reduce the signal level of that pesky "ssssss" sound, and not the original dialog. A unique focus control further lets you deparate the "essing" from the dialog, and you can monitor the key filter's output. If you're in need of a powerful de-esser, don't look anywhere else. The McDSP DE555 has you covered!

Very Good De-esser

I've used de-essers from Waves, SPL and several others and none were as transparent as this. Coupled with some side-chain compression, this worked wonders on my mixes.
