Hey thanks!
Looks (& and sounds) great, but with the desibilator it seems to sound like I lisp a bit, doesn't it? (which I acutally did pretty much when I was younger)
at which step in my audio processing order should these steps be implemented?
and should I leave out some of the steps I am doing right now?

All de-essers do that if you set the threshold too low.
RMS is just a suggestion for the threshold, a starting point.
If it's causing a lisp, raise threshold (in 1dB steps) until the lisp goes away.

Hi,
I just installed the de-esser on my linux system (version 2.3.3) and each time I apply th plugin, audacity crashed. However, the de-clicker works fine. In both cases, I used the defaults.
Does anybody have the same experience and what can I do about it?

Windows guy here; I'm hoping that a linux guru will come around and post a comment shortly. While we are waiting, does this still happen after you reboot your machine?

Try the desibilator version of that plug-in: it has different default settings.

Maybe a silly question, but I am not seeing how to install these plug-ins?

my mac computer? Also can I use the plug-ins on the new Macbook Pro M1?
