Buying Choices

Newfangled Audio and Eventide have released Elevate, which they describe as the most advanced mastering plug-in ever created. They say that this unique multi-band limiter, human-ear EQ and powerful audio maximizer will increase the loudness of your mix while maintaining or improving its dynamic perception. A spokesperson told us, "Elevate uses intelligent, adaptive technology that responds in real time to your music; creating not only the loudest, but the best sounding master."


  • Presets by APS Mastering, Matt Lange, Jeremy Lubsey, Eric Beam, ROCAsound, Chris Tabron and John McCaig.
  • Automatically adapts the attack, release and look-ahead parameters for each filter band to greatly reduce "pumping" and breathing artifacts and perceived distortion.
  • Preserves or emphasizes fast transients to avoid squashing your mix.
  • Manipulates transients across the critical bands to preserve the attacks from kick drums, snares and cymbals, without affecting the entire mix.
  • Uses linear phase auditory filters -- based on the Mel Scale -- to manipulate the audio in a way that is natural to your inner ear.
  • Solo the output of one band (or a number of bands) to hone in on problem frequencies, tweak transients or alter gain.
  • Use the Spectral Clipper to overdrive the final output without affecting the tonal balance or allowing the signal to get "tubby." Perfect for a more aggressive sound.
  • Six different types of metering allow you to keep an eye on every aspect of your output audio.
