Sonnox has announced the release of a new comprehensive equalizer that serves the production process from composition to final mix.
Claro features three distinct views, progressively adding deeper insight and precision to prevent mud, clutter, or harshness, helping you blend your tracks into a clear and balanced mix.
The first is the PRODUCE view, offering a fast, creative EQ that actively promotes your musical creativity while removing unnecessary distractions and complex technical terminology.
TWEAK view then opens up more correctional possibilities, providing you with the cleanest, most flexible filters. The real-time analyser adapts to your moves and helps to identify problematic resonances.
Finally, use the MIX view to understand and assemble your mix. Every track is simultaneously displayed for you to prioritise, explore interactions and swiftly address frequency collisions between competing tracks.
- Claro’s EQ is highly flexible, with each of its 26 bands offering:
- A clean, musical-sounding EQ that resembles the well-loved Neve types, their modern derivatives and the SSL G Series, as well as many high-end outboard equalisers..
- Left, Right, Mid, Side, Mono, or Stereo channel processing giving you the capability to correct, widen, narrow, or make space within each track. .
- A wide 20hz – 40kHz range. The extended high-frequency range offers a smooth, airy quality – excellent for vocals and mix busses. .
- Variable Q, including resonance and overshoot on the cut and shelving filters, respectively, giving you the ability to mimic classic synth filters and hardware EQ curves. .
- Variable slopes on all band shapes, up to super-steep (120dB per octave) for surgical work and treating precise audio bands.
- Claro’s automation is smooth and artefact-free, unlike most premium EQs.
- Auto Gain uniquely keeps your track at the same loudness, no matter the signal content or how you choose to EQ it.
Available for Windows and Mac in VST3, AU and AAX plugin formats, Claro is on sale at Sonnox and from distributor Plugin Boutique at an introductory 25% discount until December 1st, 2021. The regular price is £99 GBP ex. VAT where applicable.
