Welcome

and thank you for purchasing the Dual Band De-Esser DeS. Back in the 1990’s, we developed an alternative way to process signals based on phase cancellation in order to reduce sibilance.
Unlike traditional compression methods, this procedure is much more unobtrusive and simplifies control to one single parameter. SPL’s De-Esser quickly became a standard reference among recording studios, broadcast stations and live sound engineers.

The Dual Band De-Esser DeS expands on this concept by making use of two frequency bands that can be used independently or jointly. Two de-esser stages increase processing effectiveness without introducing audible artifacts. Focused processing with high and low bands makes it possible to process sibilant sounds with great precision. Furthermore, input signals are automatically adjusted so the processing is uniform, regardless of the distance between source and microphone. The Male/Female modes adapt processing in the lower band to male or female voices.
Now, the Dual Band De-Esser DeS is also available in 500 series format.

Installation into a 500 series rack

  • Please read the manual that comes with the 500 series You should gain all information necessary for the installation process.
  • Your 500 series rack should be switched off and the power cable should not be
  • Insert the DeS module into a free slot of your Make shure the connector of the DeS is precisely aligned with the rack connector.
  • Press the DeS module carefully into the rack connector and tighten the
  • Connect the DeS module with your audio environment using the connections from your 500 series
  • Insert the power cable to the 500 series rack and switch it

Control Zinthu

Pa/Palambalala

With the ON/Bypass button you can switch the DeS into the signal path. If the button is in position “On”, the DeS is active. If the button is in position “Bypass”, the audio signal passes through unprocessed.

Hi-S

Use the Hi-S control to adjust the intensity of the sibilance reduction in the upper fre- quency range. The center frequency for sibilance recognition is set at 11.2 kHz with a 3 kHz bandwidth.
Scale values for the filter are displayed in dB. The actual reduction values, i.e. after phase cancellation, might be less.
Please note that the Voice Male/Female button has no effect on the high band de-esser.
In practice, for most applications, the best results are usually achieved when Hi-S setting is set between 3 and 7.

Lo-S

Use the Lo-S control to adjust the intensity of the sibilance reduction in the lower fre- quency range. The center frequency for sibilance recognition is set at 7.6 kHz in Voice Female mode and 6.4 kHz in Voice Male mode. For more information, please refer to section “Voice Male/Female” on page 13. The bandwidth of the low band de-esser is 1.44 kHz.
Scale values for the filter are displayed in dB. The actual reduction values, i.e. after phase cancellation, might be less.
In practice, for most applications, the best results are usually achieved when Lo-S set- ting is set between 3 and 7.

High Band/Low Band De-Essing On/Off

Use the High Band De-Essing On/Off button to turn the Hi-S reduction on or off. Use the
Low Band De-Essing On/Off button to turn the Lo-S reduction on or off.
You can use the two processing stages separately or jointly. They are connected in series as independent de-esser modules. The low band de-esser is set first in the chain.
If both de-essers are engaged, there is interaction between them: a signal already pro- cessed with the low band de-esser is different from the raw material that the high band de-esser would otherwise process.

Voice Male/Female

The Voice Male/Female switch allows you to adjust the Low Band De-Esser to the type of voice being processed. These values have been determined by practical experience, so that the processor adapts better to gender. Nevertheless, you cannot take for granted that these settings will suit every single male and female voice.
Consider the Male/Female function as an additional tool to help you set the Low Band De-Esser more precisely according to your needs. Always trust your ears to find the best settings.

Signal-LED

The signal LED (Sig) indicates that an audio signal reaches the input with a level above
20 dB. This LED helps the operator especially in complex setups to determine immedi- ately whether the Dual Band De-Esser DeS actually receives a signal.

An exclamation mark within a triangle is intended to make you aware of important oper- ational advice and/or warnings that must be followed.
Be especially attentive to these and always follow the advice they give.

Zokonzanso

Unplug the unit from all power and signal connections and immediately contact a quali- fied technician when you think repairs are needed – or when moisture or foreign objects may accidentally have reached inside the housing, or in cases when the device may have fallen and shows any sign of having been damaged. This also applies to any situation in which the unit has not been subjected to any of these unusual circumstances but still is not functioning normally or its performance is substantially altered.
In cases of damage to the power supply and cord, first consider turning off the main circuit breaker before unplugging the power cord.

Zosintha / zoloweza mmalo

Be sure that any service technician uses original replacement parts or those with iden- tical specifications as the originals.
Incorrectly substituted parts can lead to fire, electrical shock or other dangers, including further equipment damage.

 

Kuyang'anira chitetezo

Be sure always to ask a service technician to conduct a thorough safety check and ensure that the state of the repaired device is in all respects up to factory standards.

kukonza

Do not use any solvents, as these can damage the chassis finish. Use a clean, dry cloth (if necessary, with an acid-free cleaning oil). Disconnect the device from your power source before cleaning.
