    Smoothest De-Esser youll ever not hear

    The DE555 is one of the most flexible and transparent De-Essers you will ever use on a mix, I simply love it on anything that has harsh frequencies. Vocals, Guitars, OHs, Rooms, if there is a frequency that's to harsh Ill throw this bad boy on it first to see how far I can take it to get rid of that noise that is distracting from the song. Own it, love it, recommend it!

    Amazing Transparency!

    I bought this because I was having trouble getting the stock De Esser in Logic Pro X to sound as transparent as I'd like while still keep those sibilant sounds under control. I decided to download this because of the reviews and I am literally blown away! Just adding it to a track and adding just a stock preset did so much better than the DAW de esser. Then I was able to fine tweak from there. Highly recommended if you want to tame those "s" sounds in a very transparent way.

    I've tried some de-essers, analogue and plugins and the DE555 has the best of both worlds to my ears. It sounds very natural and smooth after some simple tweaking and you have lots of control over the parameters and "curves". The new v6 artist presets actually surprised me with some great settings.

    Doesn't get any better

    I worked on an album project and was dealing with really bad vocal sibilance on all the lead vocals. I already own the waves bundle with the de-esser, but that just wasn't doing it for me. I then decided to demo all de-essers I could find on the market to see which of them would give me the best results. I will say the McDSP DE555 really stood out in terms of ease of use and effectiveness of presets. I then made the purchase...and it has been my go to since then.

    You cant go wrong with this

    Works for me!!!

    I had some difficult ess' to get rid of and this plugin did the trick... I was a little set back that I had to buy an iLok, but now I have one of those too!!

    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.
