DBX De-Esser 520

The 520 designed by DBX will help you expertly tame the excessive sibilance often found in vocals and other high frequency dense material. Based upon the legendary DBX 902, the DBS 520’s unique features make it possible for achieving an exact amount of de-essing regardless of variations in signal levels. The 520 permits you for creating brilliant, crisp vocals without sibilance!

The dbx 520 examines the differences in dB between the high frequency and full-bandwidth portions of a signal with its modular 500 Series based design, permitting de-essing of signals which change in level by as much as 60dB. It is featuring a Frequency Control with range from 800Hz to 8 kHz, Gain Reduction Metering and a De-essing Amount Range from 0dB to 20dB.

  • Based on the classic dbx 902
  • Frequency Control Range from 800Hz to 8kHz
  • Expanded Scale LED Gain Reduction Metering
  • De-essing Amount Range from 0dB to 20dB
  • In/Out Switch
  • HF Mode Switch
