Learn how to tame sibilance in FL Studio with Maximus
And discover how you can use Edison to manually attenuate frequencies.
De-essing in FL Studio
When you compress a vocal, it helps control dynamics for a more professional result, but it also tends to accentuate ess sounds. To remedy this and create a vocal that feels more natural, you’d do well to reach for a de-esser, or a multi-band compressor.
This time, Max Venus shows you how to de-ess a vocal to tame sibilance, which can draw attention away from the performance and compete with other elements of your mix. You’ll learn how to use Maximus, FL Studio’s multiband compressor to achieve this, and how to use Edison to manually attenuate the frequencies within a vocal clip.
