FabFilter in recent years has set the bar for what an effects plugin should be - affordable, easy-to-use, lightweight and most importantly, great sounding. FabFilter has achieved all of this, and taken it to the next level!


Pro DS, Compress that S!

Over-accentuated sibilance when recording is inevitable, even with the best equipment. That's where Pro DS comes in. Using two unique algorithms, a range of detailed controls and one of the best visual interfaces of any De-esser plugin, Pro DS will transform your vocal recording into a sound desired by the pros.

Easy-To-Use, Packed With Features

Pro DS has aimed to take all the hard work out of this process by making the interface as simple as possible.

The threshold and range dials let you hone in on the amount of de-essing applied, and the waveform view lets you visualise the parts that are being affected.

The filter section is where you can specify the range of frequencies to be affected. Typically, sibilance is most prominent in from 6/7kHz to around 14kHz, depending on the voice. This is set by default, but can be narrowed or widened accordingly. The best feature of this filter is the built in real-time visualiser, which shows you where the most intense sibilant parts are when playing back the audio.

Pro DS features two de-essing algorithms or modes.

  • Single Vocal - Perfect for a single vocal track, which can identify and split sibilance from non-sibilance.
  • Allround - This is triggered by the frequency range specified by the filter, and will affect all frequencies in the range. This is good for affecting a whole track, when mastering for example.

Like every FabFilter plugin, the features don't stop with the basics, Pro DS includes some advanced controls which really allow you to go into depth.

There are two 'band' settings which change the characteristics of the sound, and are useful for different purposes.

  • Split Band - This only attenuates the high frequencies when detected. Great for full mixes when you want to leave other frequencies untouched. This will introduce a small mount of latency however.
  • Wide Band - This will lower the overall gain of the audio when sibilance is detected. This is the desired setting for vocals, as it will apply a more natural, clean sound.

The side-chain feature allows you to use the internal audio source, or an external one. This is handy for triggering the effect at specific moments, or, instead of being used on a heavily processed track, it can be used on a clean duplicate for better detection.

There is also the option for mid only and side only processing. This is a great feature for any stage of production, but especially mastering. This will allow you to only affect the mid or the side. Typically vocals sit in the centre, so mid only will leave all stereo content untouched. The same can be applied to side processing - maybe there is a harsh guitar in the side that needs taming.

To catch transients or for added accuracy, there is an optional lookahead feature. This can be set up to 15ms, but will introduce latency. When using short lookahead times, there is the possibility for distortion via aliasing. This can be compensated with the addition of the included Oversampling feature (up to 4x) at the cost of CPU usage and additional latency.

Other features include Sample-accurate automation of nearly every parameter, a resizeable window and accurate metering.
