Tone2 AkustiX ® is a collection of six essential enhancement tools combined into one intuitive user interface. Ideal for tracks as well as full mixes AkustiX features six powerful effects: Psycho EQ, Ultra Stereo, Phase Enhance, Multi Exciter, Smart Filter and Stereo Width.
Each effect is based on the latest developments in research and offers multiple ways to enhance the sound of your recordings drastically by using psycho-acoustic processing.
Unlike competing enhancers AkustiX is easy to use and works well with nearly all kinds of material. It's a one-click solution to make your mix sound professional without knowing about mastering-voodoo.
The Psycho EQ dynamically boosts frequencies to equalize based on the nonlinearities of the human ear. It raises the perceived volume of the mix and makes it sound fat without drastically changing the overall volume.
A linear-phase tone control is provided to make your mix sound warm or bright.
Why is AkustiX Enhancer an essential tool?
"The Plug-In provides the fairy-dust that your mix needs. A bold plus for it's usability and the low price." Score 4.5 of 5
The Ultra Stereo section adds spaciousness and transparency. A Virtual Surround Encoder creates a sense of being right in the middle of the mix by stretching the sweet spot around the room, as a nice side effect a large part of the room resonances are eliminated. It's an essential tool to upmix from mono to stereo and also drastically enhances existing mixes or old recordings.
Phase Enhance adds analog punch and masks nonlinearities of speakers or amplifiers. It creates auditory distance by simulating the natural dispersion and propagation of the sound. Diffuse Cream adds silkiness to pads or vocals.
A high precision Spectrum Analyser visualizes the sound in realtime and reveals weaknesses of your mix.
Designed to enhance presence and brightness the exciter with 8192 bands adds vibrancy and depth to your mix by adding additional harmonics. It can reconstruct missing frequencies from analog recordings and low bit-rate encodings.
The Smart Filter section enhances transparency and adds more detail by using frequency-domain masking.
The easy-to-use noise reduction is an essential tool to clean analog recordings.
The multiband stereo widener allows you to enhance the stereo field while keeping the bass and mono compatibility intact.
An exclusive, new type of Phase-meter is used to visualize the phase correlation of your tracks. It provides a real time view of the stereo image by displaying information about the relative phase as well as the used frequencies.
The color bar on the left side of the Phase Meter displays the frequency range and the colors used to display these frequencies.
