Nectar 2 > Features > De-esser


Sibilance, or distracting "ess" sounds, can plague vocal tracks of all kinds, whether sung or spoken. Reduce unwanted or exaggerated sibilance with Nectar 2's intuitive De-Esser, primed for smooth results thanks to extensive hardware modeling inspired by the DBX 902 De-Esser.

  • Reduce sibilance consistently, regardless of your vocal's changing volume, through Nectar 2's intelligent processing.
  • Customize the "ess" detection by making adjustments with the Frequency control. 
  • Check the impact of gain reduction and other settings through new metering views, then adjust to taste.
