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.
