Plugin Boutique has published a new Show & Reveal video on the Focus mastering effect plugin by SoundSpot.
In the video, Joshua Casper takes a look at the features of the Focus mastering plugin, and puts it to work on some test audio.
Focus is designed to make one of the mastering industry secrets available to you using psychoacoustics – right out of the box. Focus takes care of all the wizardry behind the scenes, creating this psychoacoustic processing chain while keeping the effect mono-compatible.
All you have to do is to adjust the filterband to highlight any important elements in your master you want to stand out. This technique can take your mix into a completely new sonic realm, making your kick drums punch through and helping lead vocals and instruments sit effortlessly in the mix.
Focus for Windows and Mac (VST/AU/AAX) is available from Plugin Boutique.
