Hi everyone,

I've discovered, through recording, that I sometimes over pronounce my S's, ch sounds and when I do it sometimes sounds like a whistle... :shock:
I tried using the d'esser but, that just seems to reduce the decibel level. Can anyone please provide a tutorial on editing in Audacity to reduce these sounds?
Thanks.

Have you tried simply the Low Pass Filter? I like it better than any de-esser I've tried.

Try setting it at about 5000 Hz to start with and play with the settings.
