An equalizer is probably the tool you use most while mixing and mastering, so you need the best of the best. With FabFilter Pro-Q 3, you get the highest possible sound quality, a very extensive feature set, and a gorgeous, innovative interface with unrivalled ease of use.
bx_refinement is not an emulation of a certain tube sound. Instead, it combines several characteristics found in musical tube equipment to give you an effective tool that is easy to operate. With simple controls, bx_refinement allows you to quickly identify and discard offending frequencies.
Getting tired of using the same old pedal distortion plugins? Want some more room to experiment? It’s time to get to know Indent, from Unfiltered Audio. With just a few adjustments, you can use this handy distortion toolkit to dial in just the right sound in seconds. But don’t be fooled by its simplicity; inside this small package is a highly versatile wave-shaping tool with no less than ten unique clipping algorithms. It’s like having a whole library of distortion plugins in one package.
When professional engineers need superior double-tracking effects, they turn to Doubler. Using delay and pitch modulation, Doubler delivers extraordinary richness and texture on vocals and polyphonic instruments as well as full mixes.
VerbSuite Classics is a partnership with LiquidSonics, and uses proprietary FUSION IR processing to capture the evolving and modulating characteristics of the modeled hardware reverb tone. In blind comparisons, users could not differentiate between the real hardware reverb patch and the VerbSuite capture.
