Great info, thanks!
Hello Vario - you can dig a little deeper and uncover other ways to help with over abundant "S" sounds - also known as sibilance. Most Cardiod Pattern condensor microphones have a bit of a peak on the upper mids due tho the nature of how they achieve a cardiod pattern. sometimes really bringing out some of those sounds. If you have a microphone that will run in multuple pickup patterns - try running it in an omni directional mode.. this will allow your singer to get a little closer to the mic. You can use one of those auralex mudgaurds - or similar if you want to tame some room things. If thats not the tonality you are looking for - try using the cardiod pattern and point the center of the mic at the singers ear - so they are just slightly off axis. This may allow you to "De Ess" less.

Still relevant info though
