Not likely. Most de-esser's won't go low enough to do anything to a plosive. Try a hi-pass filter at 80 Hz or higher until things get too thin. Or, use Audio Suite to process just the plosive with a hi-pass set as above and process it into the track. There's always volume automation to duck just the offending sylable. You can also cut in the consonant from another word if you can find one by the same character. Multi-band compressor may also work. Be creative.

Well, if you want to do it the hard way, snip out copies of the plosives to a new track and invert the phase.
Poof, plosive eliminated. A little EQ and plosives 'managed'.

This has been discussed at length in previous threads on the DUC.

i agree with trakbytes, i have never gotten a de-esser to work on a P-losive.

to add another idea: slice the region just befor the offending "P" or "B" and do a quick ramp fade. that in combo with a hi-pass set above 90 (80, 100, 110, wherever) usually does the trick.

in a horses have already left the barn comment, i'd say pull your pop screen back form the mic diapraghm a bit and carefully watch that talent doesn' push back in. i have seen voice talent come in a nd push the screen closer. and i ask them to move it back where it was. then i make sure that the mic and screen are out their way and they move the script stand where they need it.

best pop screen i know of is the STEDMAN. they work great, but the early models scratch your mic stand arm wherer they attach. i think theyt have sinced fixed this. AND they are washable.

I've been known to edit out the plosive part, leaving the beginning and end of the "p" sound, closing up the space and putting in a short crossfade. it's time consuming, but works a lot of the time. You can definitely see the offensive part of the waveform.

(Bob said basically the same above. I should read before typing )

My fave is a high pass audiosuite filter with handles (100 Hz to as high as 250 Hz, 185 Hz is my default) tweak crossfades to taste.

If I have lots of time (and budget) and several takes for each pass, I will grab matching non-popped consonants and replace. Tedius, yes, but yields the very best results with solid editing.

Happy Thanksgiving! Go Cowboys!!!

Use a Waves C1 or C4. Start with one of the bass compressor presets and tweak from there. Wave Arts has a great plugin also. Wave Arts MultiDynamics Plug-In

A lot of the time just cutting the plosive out and joining the two waveforms together will yield the best results i find.. Quick too...
