Meet your new mix assistant Smooth Operator combines equalization, spectral compression and resonance suppression into a singular creative experience that's instant and intuitive.
Use it to perfect your tonal balance and add a touch of 'HiFi'. Our spectral detection algorithm adapts to your audio 44,100 s per second and automatically eliminates fatigued frequencies. This gives you full control to shape your signal and bring out more definition.
✱ Global threshold
Pull the middle circle node downwards to increase the over-all effect amount. When the curve is horizontal, Smooth Operator will apply the same effect amount across the entire frequency spectrum.
✱ Change the response curve
Move the 4 nodes on the curve to sculpt your desired frequency response. Preserve frequency areas by moving the nodes up, or go harder on frequency areas by dragging the nodes down. Use your mousewheel or trackpad-scroll to adjust the Q.
✱ Go sual or go broad
The "Focus" slider controls how sually Smooth Operator works. At 100%, each frequency spike is processed independently, while lower focus values will give you a broader response.
✱ Monitor problematic areas in solo
Engage the "Solo" button to audition different areas of the frequency spectrum separately and identify problematic areas in your track. Then decide how hard Smooth Operator should tackle them.
✱ Use Smooth Operator as an intelligent ducker
If you engage "Side Chain" mode, you can duck your signal relative to the frequency content of another track in your mix. The side chain input will then detee what frequencies are attenuated, allowing you to create space between two competing tracks in your mix. (Example: Ducking your bass with your kick set as the side chain input).
✱ Two algorithm modes
Click the "M" icon to switch between "High-Res" and "Classic" algorithms. "Classic" offers lower latency for tracking and production workflows, while "High-Res" offers a cleaner response for mixing and mastering purposes.
✱ Display options
Switch between pink, green and blue background colors. Fully resizable plugin window.
