Are you looking for some clarity? Not in life, because we cannot help you with that, but we can help you find it in your music by introducing you to Baby Audio‘s new Smooth Operator, an intelligent signal balancer to make your mixes bling like shoe-shine. Until further notice, this introductory sale cuts 44% off the normal price tag of $69.
This aptly named plugin conjoins resonance suppression with equalization and spectral compression to eliminate fatigued frequencies and increase tonal balance, clarity and overall slickness of any incoming signal. It can be deployed on tracks and busses, instruments and vocals for full tonal control and spectral balance. You can also implement it in sidechain mode to duck a signal with the tonal balance of another track, and given the all-round creative mind of the average music producer, Smooth Operator can really be used in all kinds of creative ways. The developer even states that it was designed with creativity in mind, in stark contrast to most other spectral processors.
The workflow is intuitive, the UI is child’s play to operate, and the visual impression is as smooth as its name implies. It comes equipped with 63 presets, three color-modes and a fully resizable GUI. Compatibility stretches across the VST, VST3, AU and AAX formats, supported on MacOS 10.7 and up (including Catalina and Big Sur) and Windows 7 and up, supported in most widely used DAWs.
For any Soothe or Gulffoss enthusiast, this is a worthy addition to their spectral toolbox. For everyone else there is a trial to convince them of its worth. In our humble opinion, it definitely tops the $39 currently asked for.
