AUDIFIED ANNOUNCES MIXCHECKER MIXING ASSISTANT PLUG-IN


Audified has announced the availability of MixChecker a mixing assistant plug-in that transforms studio monitors into classic reference monitors or one of several consumer devices to instantly improve mixes.


Mixing music or other content for consumer that takes time to master and MixChecker saves time when inserting it as the last plug-in in the master output track of any DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) project to transform studio monitors into classic reference monitors or one of several consumer devices at the press of a (virtual) button.


Audified Marketing Director Jakub Turecek explains, “Ex-broadcast pros from our team always wondered, ‘Why do our trailers always sound so good in the studio but never the same when you catch them on air?’ When they realised, they said, ‘We should have a TV and a radio in every edit room, so that we can mix directly for TV or radio.’ When they joined our team they expanded upon this idea since sound engineers who mix for iPhone or iPad computer games and YouTube content creators all face the same problem: ‘Do we reallyneed so much gear in our studios? Surely there has got to be a cleverer and more convenient way to handle these issues?”


Audified have made this for everyday people for whom that content is mixed usually do not use high-end studio monitors, but often use desktop speakers, tablets and smart phones to satisfy their everyday listening needs, while watching TV and listening to music in the car remains routine. Best mixing practice today, therefore, involves ensuring that mixes are going to sound the best that they can on a wide range of different devices that sound so wildly different by their very nature — not just on high-end studio monitors. Meet MixChecker, then the clever and convenient mixing assistant plug-in that takes all the pain out of checking mixes.

Working with MixChecker is simple where straightforward functions are separated into two specific sections. Simulation accesses acoustic models of several consumer devices and classic reference monitors simply select the device that you want to check the sound of your mix on by pressing a single button clearly labelled with an instantly-recognisable icon. Indeed, cycling through these buttons bring about an authentic overview of how the mix should sound across a variety of realistic real-world listening devices; not all studio monitors deliver a flat frequency response, however — hence the Compensation control section select from four more clearly-labelled buttons to tell MixChecker that you are using average 5” or 8” speakers or headphones and listen to the resulting sound change accordingly (although high-quality studio monitor owners should simply select OFF). The BYPASS button turns off all processing, ensuring that the signal passes through MixChecker without being treated. Audified takes time that is needed to measure the frequency responses and behaviour of all the available devices in laboratory conditions to create models that are true and faithful, MixChecker makes mixing for the people plain sailing.
