Mixing and mastering utility plugin
🌎 Overview: REFERENCE will help you compare the original production you’re working on in your DAW to your chosen reference tracks.
⚠️ Problem Solved: If your mixes don’t sound as professional as commercially successful songs, REFERENCE will give you the tools and guidance to resolve this.

🤩 Highlight 1: REFERENCE will level match your songs by default. This crucial feature will allow you to compare songs without bias, as humans perceive louder songs to have more bass and more clarity. So you’ll make better, more informed mixing decisions using REFERENCE.
🤩 Highlight 2: The Trinity Display visual in the lower part of REFERENCE will show you the exact EQ curve you need to use on your track to get it sounding like your reference track.
Dynamic Resonance Suppressor
🌎 Overview: RESO is a dynamic resonance suppressor that helps you quickly identify and resolve resonances in your audio.
⚠️ Problem Solved: Excessive resonances ruin mixes, giving them a harsh and unpleasant sound. Our plugin RESO helps you quickly identify and resolve resonances. The smart features help you get the best possible sound by dynamically fixing the problematic resonances without making your music sound thin.
✅ Get Started: Load up an instance of RESO on any channel and listen closely for resonances. The display, frequency sweep, and ‘calculate targets’ features will help you identify resonant frequencies. Double click anywhere within the main window to create a node. Position the node where you want the resonance suppression to start. The Q is automatically optimized for the frequency of the node. You can scroll to adjust the Q to suit your preference.
🤩 Highlight 1: The Calculate Targets feature will analyze your audio, find the resonant frequencies, and give you ‘Target Nodes’ showing how much reduction is suggested to transparently resolve the resonance.
🤩 Highlight 2: RESOs super-transparent mastering-grade filters allow you to clean up resonances without affecting your transients and phase.
Final Mix & Mastering EQ
🌎 Overview: BASSROOM is an EQ designed to fix the low-frequency balance of your overall track.
⚠️ Problem Solved: Getting the low-frequencies right in your mix or master is a huge challenge, whether you have acoustic treatment and pro monitors or not. BASSROOM analyses your production and shows you the EQ settings needed to get a powerful and well-balanced sound.
✅ Get Started: Load up BASSROOM on your master channel before your limiter. Select a preset or import your own reference track. Match the bands to the EQ target suggestions, then tweak to suit your preference.

✅ Get Started: Load up an instance of LIMITER on your master channel and select your preset (i.e Loud, Spotify, Apple Music, etc). Monitor the loudest section of your track, and click analyze. You’ll see a target range on the input gain slider showing you what gain adjustment is needed to achieve your sonic goal. You’ll also see target arrows on the other controls to help you optimize your sound.
🤩 Highlight 1: You can dial in rich harmonic distortion using the NRG slider, and enhance your transients with the PCH slider. This drives more perceived loudness and punch to help mitigate the effects of limiting.
