VSTBuzz is giving away the Sibilance de-esser plugin by Waves Audio as a completely free download until May 11th, 2020.
Sibilance is a de-esser effect in VST, AU, and AAX plugin formats for digital audio workstations on PC and Mac. Optimized for maximum ease of use, Sibilance is easier to use than most other de-esser plugins. It is based on the innovative Organic ReSynthesis technology which removes harsh sibilance without affecting the rest of the vocal. The plugin is normally priced at $69 but you can get it for free at VSTBuzz during this exclusive deal.See also: EXCLUSIVE DEAL: Get 270 Royalty-Free Sound Libraries For $16!
Thanks to its streamlined interface, Sibilance is very easy to set up. Add it as an insert on a vocal track and adjust the Detection and Threshold controls to your liking. The plugin will automatically detect and remove the harsh “S” and “Sh” sounds without any need for additional fine-tuning.
This kind of effect is useful for recorded vocals but it can also be used in a podcast studio or as a tool for processing vocals for radio broadcast. It is the perfect tool to use with the ERA 4 Voice Leveler plugin which is also free at the moment.
Unlike most de-essers which act like narrow-band compressors, Sibilance uses Organic ReSynthesis spectral filters to identify undesirable bursts of sibilant energy, then completely separates the nuances of sibilance from the vocal signal, leaving the rest of the signal untouched.
Waves Audio already offered Sibilance as a free download for a limited time. This was back in 2018 when the company released it as a Black Friday freebie. Those who missed the opportunity to download Sibilance for free now have another chance.
To get your free copy of Waves Sibilance, visit the promo page on VSTBuzz and complete the free checkout process. A valid email address is required to complete the checkout process.
UPDATE: It seems that VSTBuzz temporarily ran out of Sibilance codes, but they’re ordering a fresh batch from Waves Audio. So, if you sign up now, you should be able to get a free copy of Waves Sibilance with a little bit of delay.
Download: Waves Sibilance (free @ VSTBuzz until May 11th, 2020)
Do you have to use the waves installer with all their plugins in one or is it just sibilance?
There’s no way to register the product because I’m not getting a code. Am I doing something wrong?
Nevermind, they’re already out of codes
Ah, that sucks. Did you receive a confirmation from VSTBuzz? Are they planning to add more codes?
UPDATE: OK, it seems that more codes are on the way.
Info from VSTBuzz: We’ve just processed your recent order at VSTBuzz for FREE! “Sibilance” by Waves. Unfortunately, we’ve just run out of license codes / serial numbers due to popularity. Don’t worry though! We’re already aware of this, and have ordered more – you’ll have your code within the next 24 hours at the most (usually a lot faster!). We’ll email you right away once the serial is added to your account.
Now it’s saying “Deal Expired” EVEN THOUGH IT’S SUPPOSED TO RUN TILL MAY 11TH!!
I can seem to get past the buy now screen. It just freezes every time. Thought it was my computer but everything else loads.

I’m on Win7. I was able to run Berzerk from Waves so I grabbed this one too, but somehow after install it doesn’t show up in Reaper. If anyone had this problem and made it work, please post the solution.
It says Deal Expired
There is a statement in the page saying “Back soon! We’ve run out of serials!” :) I just realized that.
It works now, thank you very much for bringing this to our attention! Go get it while they still have serials!
Still works, just installed – regged with code from the 0 dollar deal at VSTbuzz
