The Drawmer MX50 Pro  Dual Vocal De-Esser quickly and efficiently solves the problems of gettintg the vocal sound(s) you want by reducing the level of the sibilant sounds while leaving the remainder of the signal unchanged.

The MX50 is flexible, simple to set up, and designed to fulfill the needs of the recording studios, broadcast studios, theatres, and other live sound venues. It is designed to overcome the problems that can arise when sibilant sounds (Ss and Ts) are over-emphasized by the human voice through "smoothing" a stereo mix, reducing string noise on acoustic guitars or breath noise on flutes. It can even refine cymbal and hi-hat sounds. Processing is achieved by adjusting just two control parameters, Frequency and De-Ess. The fully variable Frequency control operates from 800 Hz to 8 kHz encompassing the full sibilant range, including "hard" sounding harmonics and other side effects which can be generated when treble frequencies are boosted or enhanced. This is followed by the variable De-Ess which acts as a "more" control giving up to 20dB of gain reduction at the selected frequency.

Drawmer MX50-Pro Features:

  • Two modes of operation:
    • Split Band de-essing: Recommended for the majority of applications, this mode splits the audio spectrum into two bands with the split point being dictated by the position of the Frequency control. Only frequencies above the split point are attenuated.
    • Full Band de-essing: A useful alternative where unobtrusive minimal processing is required. This mode reduces the total signal level in response to sibilant peaks in the selected frequency band.
  • Floating Threshold System - This intelligent circuitry has a floating Threshold that adapts to the dynamics and level of the incoming material, eliminating the need for a manual Threshold control and creating more natural results.
  • Air function - As sibilance rarely occurs above 10 kHz this feature adds back high-frequency "gloss" in excess of 12KHz preserving upper harmonics and increasing the transparency of operation.
  • Frequency - Selects the frequency band in which the de-esser operates. In Split Band mode, this determines the split point above which gain reduction will take place. The control is continuously variable from 800 Hz to 8 kHz and covers the full sibilant range.
  • De-Ess - Adjusts the amount of gain reduction that will take place when a sibilant sound has been detected. Up to a maximum of 20dB may be applied. This control uses an intelligent Floating Threshold circuitry which removes the need for a manual De-Ess Threshold control. One of the benefits of this design approach is that during quiet passages the sibilants are held to a level which is relative to the original signal.
  • Split Band De-Ess - Split Band operation only reduces the selected frequencies above the value set via the Frequency control. In most situations this mode, in conjunction with the Air function, offers the most transparent de-essing. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
  • Full Band De-Ess - Full Band operation reduces the total signal level in response to signals in the selected frequency band. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
  • Air: The Air control enables frequencies above the sibilant band to be retained, greatly increasing transparency of the de-essing process. During normal use, it's recommended to keep the Air function active for both Split Band and Full Band de-essing. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
  • Link -Configures the unit for stereo operation where the average left/right signal level is used as the Floating Threshold. In linked mode the red status LED beneath the link switch will illuminate.
  • De-Ess Gain Reduction Display - A nine-segment LED bar graph shows how much gain reduction is being applied up to a maximum of 20dB. In Full Band mode gain reduction is applied to the whole signal, while in Split Band mode only frequencies above the value set on the frequency control are subject to gain reduction.
  • Bypass -The Bypass position routes the input signal to the output with no processing. These switches are independant of any linking and will only bypass their respective channel. Status LED illuminates when engaged.
