There are a number inexpensive (when on sale) audio problem solvers to demo to see it they just might take your mix to the next level.

1. FIRE The Clip - Make your mix louder without unwanted side effects. Best Clipper available IMHO. Use instead of or after limiter. €49.00  https://www.acustica-audio.com/store/products/firetheclip

2. CLARITY Vx - Voice noise reduction. On sale now for $29.99  https://www.waves.com/plugins/clarity-vx#clarity-vx-vocal-noise-reduction

3. TRUE MID/SIDE - Can be used to enhance ambience and balance your stereo field. $29.95   https://www.raisingjakestudios.com/utilitiy and fx.html#True:32Mid:47Side

All of these have a single knob to control the main effect so they are super easy to used.

If you are looking to tame harshness and add density and presence, G-Sonique's  Analog Tape ASX-72 is on sale for €18.9 as an intro price for first the 100 customers.  This is a Windows only plugin. https://www.g-sonique.com/analog-tape-asx-72-vst-plugin.html

I've tried many tape emulations and this is one of the best, especially for not harming the original signal.  A great application would be to make an inexpensive camera mic preamp sound more rich and full.  If you are not happy with the tone of your audio recording, this will reframe it in pleasing and present manner.

I came across a free leveler that is worth checking out (if you are on Windows.)


It really has a great natural sound that reinterprets the dynamics to make it more natural sounding even if you only changing a the volume slightly. I am following a multiband compressor on the master bus and the make he compressor sound more natural. I have a feeling this is going to be a secret weapon of short as it can really reframe the dynamic response of a track or mix for the better.

Thomas also makes Loudmax, which is a free limiter that runs on both Windows and Mac.


Both are worth checking out.
