PUNCH Evo

Vocal Processing by Antares

Please Note: You must have an iLok USB Smart Key to use PUNCH Evo

PUNCH Evo is a unique processor that as its name implies, lets you quickly and easily give your vocal more dynamic impact, allowing it to cut through a dense mix with clarity and power.

Combining advanced dynamic processing with an incredibly easy-to-use interface, PUNCH Evo gives professional results while letting you focus on your music.

As Paul White put it in his review of the original PUNCH in Sound On Sound:

"...You can nail the level of a vocal track in a mix without being a compression wizard...If you can't get your vocal to sit in a track using this, it's probably deficient in some other way."

PUNCH Evo is a smart dynamics processor that is designed to optimize the level of a vocal track to allow it to cut through a dense mix with power and clarity. It provides a combination of compression, gain, limiting, and overload protection with a user interface designed for speed and simplicity. 

All with only three simple controls:

  • Gain

This control allows you to increase the gain of your vocal.

  • Impact

This is where the magic happens. This control lets you select the amount of “punch” that is added to the vocal. As you increase the value of this control, level variations in the vocal performance are equalized and their level raised.

  • Ceiling

This control allows you to attenuate the signal after all other processing. Although PUNCH Evo allows you to create a full- level signal without risk of ugly distortion, it will usually be wise to apply at least a little attenuation here to allow yourself some room for any further processing that might apply gain.
