    De-esser plugin

    Hello,

    I was wondering if any of you guys are having the same problems as I have. I´m mixing some band with ardour and jamin, and I really need a de-esser for the lead vocals. I can only find 1 de-esser, found in the TAP plugins pack. This de-esser doesn´t work. I can´t understand why, all other plugins just work.
    I´m running 2.6.24-19-generic x64 on an Intel C2D 2.0, 2 gig RAM.

    Please help me with the TAP de-esser, or point me to an alternative!

    Thank you
    Since Warty

    Re: De-esser plugin

    don't know about a good de-essing plugin but :

    1- can you re-record the vocals with a filter of some sort ?

    2- if not, can you analyze the vocal frequencies and spot which frequency range poses problem ? I would guess the essing effect is occupying a very narrow bandwitdh (I don't really know, I never faced this problem). Could you try to spot it and work with some EQ or use a very frequency restricted compression ?

    No, I can´t re-record the vocals, because it´s a live gig.
    De-essing is in fact a compressor with a bandfilter, but I can´t find a way to cleverly chain these together to make a de-esser.. I´ve tried to use the SC2/3 compressor on a seperate buss in ardour, and feed it with only 5/6KHz, but that gave me internal feedback..

    Don´t you find it weird that there´s only 1 LADSPA de-esser plugin available? The TAP-de-esser is mostly made for ardour, so I´m a bit confused..

    Thank you for your reply.

    Re: De-esser plugin

    what do you mean by "internal feedback" ??
    ... do you need to reroute through a bus ? why don't you use these plugins in the track post fader directly (i.e. internal insert) ? ardour is non destructive so unless you freeze the track explicitely, you still keep the original audio.

    Have you tried just dropping the volume by 6-7 dB on the ess? It's not pretty, but I've read that works.
