Breathe Life Into Your Music

If your music is sounding lifeless, lacking energy, and missing character then it simply will not connect with your listeners. ANIMATE helps you revitalise your music with precision.

A Clear Winner

The phase reducing all-pass filters makes ANIMATE a great choice during mastering. Other filters can introduce transient smearing, reducing the impact of your music.

ANIMATE - Multi purpose Mixing Plugin
01

EXPAND

Expand mode allows you to dial in a pristinely clean sounding upward expansion. This increases the volume of signals over the threshold, giving your audio more dynamic range in a transparent way.

02

PUNCH

Punch mode enhances the transients of your audio to help them bite through the mix. Whether you want to subtly accentuate the high-frequency transients in the mid-channel of your master or bring out serious smack on an individual channel,Punchcan handle the task.

03

IGNITE

Ignite mode allows you to dial in rich harmonic distortion in a dynamic way based on the input signal. Ignite can increase the perceived loudness, power and presence of a channel without the pumping effects of a compressor.

04

GROW

Grow mode lets you increase the width of the selected frequencies using a psychoacoustic precedence effect. Grow can be applied in a dynamic way meaning only the signal surpassing the threshold is widened. This along with the frequency selection gives you a new realm of movement to inject into your music.

EQ ENHANCING SOFTWARE

Animate breathes life into parts of a mix and especially a master by uplifting the dynamics and adding that extra polish to selected parts of a mix, master or an individual instrument. The results are outstanding. This is by far my favourite plugin of the decade. Use it after gain staging and EQ and compression etc to add that extra zing to your track.

A box of tricks that does what it says on the tin, plus more!

Animate is a brilliant multi-effects tool to enhance and precisely fine tune elements in a song. Also very useful for manipulating sampled sounds and placing them in their own space in a mix. Upward compression, transient control, saturation and stereo width control, all combined makes this plugin indispensable. Having a filter to choose only what bands of frequencies are affected is the secret sauce that allows for an enhanced level of creativity.

Fantastic Plugin!

Animate does exactly what you'd think. It adds movement and feel to your tracks. It's worth every penny.

Another excellent plugin from MtM!

I now have almost all of the MtM plugins, I use them on every track I create. Animate adds a clarity and punch to sounds in a simple to use and understand way - the way I like plugins to work!

All Pass Filter

The filter allows you to isolate which frequencies are processed. The frequencies of the signal will glow giving you a better idea of where to set the bands. Slide the white handles to the far ends to disengage the filter and process the whole frequency spectrum.

The filters have a 24dB/octave slope and are combined with an innovative solution to dramatically minimise phase distortion. You can set individual filter settings for each mode (Expand, Punch, Ignite and Grow).

Ammount

The amount sets the gain range of the selected mode. The higher the percentage, the more intense the effect.

If the amount slider is at 0%, no effect is introduced. 1%-100% mixes the wet signal into the dry. 100%-300% increases the wet signal gain.

‘Option + Click’ jumps the amount straight to 100% which is often a great starting point. 

Non-selected modes with an amount greater than 0% will display a faint glow in the icon.

Threshold

The threshold sets the level at which the effect starts reacting to the audio signal.

If your audio is peaking below the threshold the effect won’t react to your audio. If you want an effect to only look at the peaks of your audio then set the threshold to just allow the peaks to surpass the threshold. If you wanted an exaggerated effect for your audio then you would set the threshold very low so the effect reacts to both the loudest and quietest parts of your audio.

The threshold meter will not display an input until the amount slider is above 0% or the threshold is below 0.0dB

Controls

Full control over the sonic qualities of each mode.

You can apply ANIMATE’s effects to the mid-channel, side channel or left and right channels.

If you want the selected effect to process the entire stereo spread of the audio coming through ANIMATE leave the default ‘L/R’ button engaged. If you want the selected effect to only process the mid signal, click ‘M’. If you want the selected effect to only process the side signal, click ‘S’.

EXPAND applies transparent upward expansion at ratios up to 1:4, while PUNCH does a superb job of subtly emphasizing transients or aggressively sharpening them up. IGNITE delivers truly delicious harmonic distortion, drivable into decimation if required, and GROW is ideal for dynamically widening mono sources and spreading out stereo ones.

Computer Music

ANIMATE adds color and depth to tracks in really expressive and musical ways whereas other plug-ins of this type can often touch the sound too much. ANIMATE, if used sparingly, lifts and energize tracks in a mix in ways that I have not experienced before.

Pro Tools Expert

This thing is pretty fire, I have to say. BIG user of Mastering The Mix products, but ANIMATE is a Swiss Army Knife plugin. SO many applications!
