DMG Audio releases Essence de-esser plugin

DMG Audio has released Essence, a powerful and transparent de-esser effect plug-in for Windows and Mac.

DMG Audio Essence

It’s much more than just a vocal de-esser; it’s a flexible sub-band processor that can reach in and invisibly control any element in a mix.

For the first time in audio software history, Essence provides the power to de-ess a full mix with all of the adaptability and subtlety of hardware.

Mastering Engineers just found a new secret weapon.
