Get more from mono with Recover Sides

Reduce width, without losing the sides. The new Recover Sides feature maintains stereo information in mono so you can preserve depth and power when narrowing problem frequencies like a wide bass. 

Automate clarity with new Stabilizer module

Sculpt a balanced sound with the new Stabilizer module, an intelligent and adaptive mastering EQ. Dynamically shape your mix into a clear, natural tone, or tame problem resonance, carve away harshness and smooth transients for better translation across listening environments.

Add musical movement with Impact module

Enhance the rhythm and feel of your tracks by intuitively controlling microdynamics with the new Impact module. Four sliders work across different frequency bands to breathe life into your mix, adding punch and dynamic space, or gluing your track together for a thicker sound.

Additional Enhancements
