LIL FREQ de-essing, etc.

I'd really like to get a Lil Freq. Empirical Labs is one of my favorite companies and I've heard nothing but good things about this EQ. My question is: How is the de-essing function? Is it identical in quality to the that of the DerrEsser (which is fantastic) ?

The mercenary site quotes it as such, I think the only difference is the 500 series has a 'listen' button, and the LED's nobs are spread across a larger interface.

I have no complaints about the DS/HL on the lil freq

Lil Freq is among the best EQs in my setup. The DS function is killer as well!

another +1 for the de-esser on the Lil' FrEQ.

Great tool that comes in more handy then one might realize. When asked to "fix up" clips from other talent, I find myself using it quite a bit.

/some VO folks are horribly sibilant due to poor mic technique.
