DBX 520 De-Esser

The dbx 520 is dbx's 500-series adaptation of their classic and much loved dbx 902 De-Esser. Nothing quite beats a hardware de-esser, and the long since discontinued dbx 902 was the king of them all. Now with the popularity of the 500 series format, it is time for the return of this much loved circuit.

The dbx 520's ability to help you expertly tame the excessive sibilance often found in vocals and other high frequency dense material, and it's unique features will make it possible for you to achieve the exact amount needed of de-essing despite ever changing levels in the signal. Imagine the possibility crisp and clear vocals without sibilance without having to twizzle and tweeze inside of your DAW. The dbx 520 available from Front End Audio. makes this possibility a reality.

How does it work? Well, the dbx 520 looks at differences in dB between the high frequency and full-bandwidth portions of a signal, thus allowing de-essing of signals which change in level by as much as 60dB. It features a Frequency Control with range from 800Hz to 8kHz, Gain Reduction Metering and a De-essing Amount Range from 0dB to 20dB.

And, unlike the 902, the dbx 520 is made for the extremely popular studio-standard 500-series power supplies. Chances are, you already have a rack with an open slot just waiting for this module. And if you don't, then we can help with that, as well.
