About FabFilter Pro-DS

Every mix or mastering engineer often has to deal with over-sibilant vocals. Even when using the best microphones, pre-amps and converters, 's' and 't' sounds can easily get over-accentuated during post-processing like compression, saturation or limiting. For all these cases, FabFilter Pro-DS comes to the rescue!

With its highly intelligent 'Single Vocal' detection algorithm, it accurately and transparently attenuates sibilance in vocal recordings. Plus when using Pro-DS in 'Allround' mode, it's a great tool for high-frequency limiting of any material, like drums or full mixes. Try it out yourself!

FabFilter Pro-DS
