INTENSITY is a new kind of audio processor for mixing, mastering and sound design. Built on techniques typically found in facial recognition algorithms, INTENSITY brings out a sound’s inherent detail, increases its perceived loudness and density, and adds insane amounts of clarity. The unique algorithm carves out important signal features – making sounds sound more like themselves – and is operated with essentially one control. Between the proprietary algorithm and an optional soft-knee saturating limiter in the plugin’s output stage, INTENSITY also excels at attaining maximum loudness and creating a beautifully aggressive tone.

At the heart of the plug-in lies its namesake, the INTENSITY circuit. A combination of advanced neural network based analysis and proprietary input and output transforms is used to separate the signal into broad strokes and detail features. By boosting the details while leaving the broad strokes in place, the sound's unique characteristics are amplified, masking effects mitigated, details carved out, the density and perceived loudness increased.

In most cases, the INTENSITY trackball is all you'll need to use to get a great sound. But the processing amount can be controlled frequency dependently, too, using the BIAS function. INTENSITY features ten preset bias curves, including two equal loudness curves, a presence boost curve, linear tilt curves, and more. Curves are selected using our proprietary Visual Menu widget, which allows you to preview a setting simply by hovering your mouse over it.
