If there is one thing I can’t resist, it’s
darling window treatments crazy filters and effects and this one looks very promising. This is geared towards mixing and mastering to add that special something to a song. Tone 2 has a filter, stereo enhance, bass enhance, phase enhance. breast enhance… Ok… I added the last one but this plug-in looks very promising. I really wish they would come out with an RTAS version so I can throw this into Pro Tools.
I’m starting to see a trend in virtual synth companies making effects plug-ins for DAWs and from what I’ve used (Rob Papen RP Verb and Delay) they are more comprehensive than the big names in the business. So lets take a look at what this plug-in can do.
Each effect is based on the latest developments in psycho-acoustic research and offers multiple ways to customize your recordings by using psycho-acoustic processing to shape and enhance your sound.
AkustiX Enhancer features six powerful mixing effects:
The Psycho EQ dynamically boosts and equalizes frequencies based on the nonlinearity of the human ear.
With up to 3 frequency bands available the stereo width effect uses exclusive new technology to provide independent frequency control over the stereo width & spatial image without introducing negative artifacts.
The Ultra Stereo section adds transparency while enhancing perceived spaciousness and auditory distance within a mix, it can also be used to up mix from mono to stereo.
Phase Enhance masks non linearities and simulates a more natural dispersion and propagation of the sound.
Designed to enhance presence and brightness the multiband exciter adds vibrancy and depth to your mix by adding additional harmonics.
The Smart Filter section enhances transparency and adds more detail by using frequency-domain masking
Looks like I’m going to have to get my Vienna Ensemble Pro up and running so I can throw AU plug-ins inside of Pro Tools and buy this as soon as it comes out.
