Plugin Boutique are offering 40% off Smooth Operator by Baby Audio for a limited time, now only £32.95 / $39.25, (usually £59.00 / $70.28). The offer ends March 20th.
Smooth Operator combines equalization, spectral compression and resonance suppression into a singular creative experience that’s instant and intuitive. Use it to perfect your tonal balance and add a touch of ‘hi-fi’.
BABY Audio’s spectral detection algorithm adapts to your audio 44,100 times per second and automatically eliminates fatigued frequencies. This gives you full control to shape your signal and bring out more definition.
- Brings out clarity and smoothness across instruments, vocals and mix busses.
- Allows for creative tone-shaping without artefacts or harsh resonances.
- An intelligent algorithm that automatically detects and resolves fatigued frequencies.
What is Spectral Processing?
The easiest way to understand Spectral Processing is to think of it as manipulating the building blocks that make up a digital signal – rather than the actual signal. BABY Audio’s algorithm uses Fast Fourier Transform – or FFT – to break the incoming audio into tiny particles, which are analyzed and processed separately, before being put back together again. This all happens in real-time and allows for a much more surgical approach to resonance detection and rebalancing than what would be possible with traditional audio effects.
While most spectral tools focus on audio restoration, BABY Audio wanted Smooth Operator to be all about creative expression. The plugin is meant for shaping your tone. Use it to compress, EQ and ‘purify’ in one simple process – and know that Smooth Operator has your back when it comes to automatically eliminating artefacts.
Smooth Operator comes loaded with 63 presets created by friends of BABY Audio – including:
- Preston Reid (Ciara, Toni Braxton, Lil Uzi Vert)
- David Nakaji (Post Malone, Aminé, Lil Eazzyy)
- Rob Kleiner (David Guetta, Sia, Britney Spears, Giorgio Moroder)
- Neenah (Winne, Mr. Probz, Nana Fofie, Joe Budden)
New in v1.0.1
The update introduces a new HIGH-RES algorithm mode, which gets rid of “spectral harmonics” when you push the plugin hard. The new algorithm also offers more depth and definition overall.
You can switch between the new HIGH-RES and CLASSIC algorithm modes by clicking the “M” icon in the preset bar.
Smooth Operator is available to PC and Mac users (VST2, VST3, AU and AAX).
