I find it easier, although more time consuming ITB.
The Digidesign and the Waves de-essers are good but most of the time I do it by hand dipping the volume on the channel.

Just as I was going to ask, someone else beat me to it.. :-)

If I may extend the question: Tchad, when you were still mixing OTB, what hardware de-esser did you use? One of your old dbx 90xs rack modules?

Thanks a lot!

Yes.
Depending on the voice, I'd take a bit of 5-7K (API 550a) out first then run through a 902, then through a Pultec EQP1-A boosting 16K, then a compressor.
