Mackie DSR-1

Model: DSR-1
Three-band frequency controlled "De-Esser" dynamic processor

Three-band frequency controlled "De-Esser" dynamic processor

The DSR-1 is a highly accurate, frequency controlled, three-band dynamic processor that enables you to quickly isolate and correct unwanted sibilance found in vocal recordings of singers and speakers. The DSR-1 reduces annoying sibilance and popping sounds that are often found in recordings without loosing the crisp top-end clarity. Don�t let the simple chicken head controls and the funky retro-look fool you; the DSR-1 is a highly professional tool that is ideal for editing vocals, instruments, and other sources.

The DSR-1 is an invaluable D8B plug-in that can save otherwise great recordings by eliminating troublesome �Ess� frequencies. The DSR-1 employs frequency controlled compression to reduce problematic �Ess� that often occurs in recordings of singers and speakers. Using the Frequency and Width controls to zero in on specific problem areas, an internal keying device known as Listen allows you to solo or (Listen) to the isolated sibilant frequency that you want to compress. The DSR-1 can also help to reduce shrill, high-pitched sounds that may accompany bass guitars, wind instruments, or other acoustic instruments. With a series of useful presets designed for male and female vocals, spoken word and other instruments, the DSR-1 promises to make even the toughest job easy to correct. As with all D8B plug-ins, you can automate any of the DSR-1�s parameters and save your adjustments as part of a D8B session.
