Hello everybody.

I've searched in the manual and on different websites to find information about a de-esser in the new StudioLive Series III. Can't find anything.

Does it have one?

No. Besides the "Fat Channel" there is only reverb and delay. There seem to be no plans for Chorus etc. any more.

surprise This is not professional. A modern mixing console needs to have basic functions like de-essing!

The Series III has many great functions, I would like to use, but if it has no de-esser, I won't buy it.

2 Reverbs and 2 Delays is not very luxurious, I agree. But it's a PreSonus tradition (...) and you should consider that with the Series III they have introduced the "modelling" of effects and processing units, so there is an remarkable evolution. Actually there are two aspects important for evaluation: 1) The integration of Studio One in the workflow and 2) the "add-on" of an AVB Waves Rack as shown at this years Winter NAMM. All this will add a lot of processing to the Series III mixers, so time will tell what "professional" is, or not.

Maybe I've been a bit unfair when I said, it was not "professional" to have no de-esser. The Series III is a great mixing console with loads of well designed functions and PreSonus did a good job! I'm just wondering that there is no DSP-Power left over for deessing. ^^

The compatibility to the Waves Rack is a very great feature!

 Now I have made a couple of gigs with my StudioLive 32 series 3 and StudioLive 32 RM.
It’s a great sounding mixer, but I really miss a de-esser.

With the old StudioLive, it was easy to solve with an external de-essers. I had 2 dbx 263x in a small rack witch always did a good job.
Is there any plans for de-essers in future upgrades?
