sonible Balancer

Balancer was developed by Focusrite and sonible. While listening to any audio material for a couple of seconds, the plug-in gathers detailed information crucial for the mixing task at hand. By combining and interpreting this information using A.I. technology, deficiencies in the signal (e.g. regarding the spectral balance) are detected and automatically corrected.

Profiles add even more flexibility to the system by optimizing the algorithm for different source signals. By telling the smart:engine what kind of instrument or voice it’s handling, choosing a suitable profile ensures a perfect adaptation of the analysis to the respective input signal.


  • Less time engineering, more time creating.
  • Suitable for beginners, pros, and everyone in-between.
  • Automatic corrections within seconds.
