JELSTUDIO's "Claire"

A brightness enhancer for LIVE or mixing/mastering use

Claire adds sparkle, air, grit, glimmer to the high-end of the incoming audio

It works by creating a new synthetic signal, which is blended with the incoming signal. It does not EQ, or modify, the incoming dry signal in any way (Except by limiting all non-bypassed output to a maximum of zero dB FS)

Technically it is a 32/64 bit VST2 audio-effect plugin mainly for DAWs and sound/video-editors on Windows, but it can also be used in a LIVE VST-host (for example with LIVE stage-performance audio, or with music/TV home-stereo audio)

A few ideas of what Claire can be used for: to brighten, or make more vivid, the individual tracks in a multi-track mixing-process (Generally this yields the best results), or the overall sound-crispness of a track that has already been down-mixed and/or mastered (The success of this approach depends greatly on the input-sound and is not always useful)

Claire VST plugin

Some of Claire's key-points:
  • Non-bypassed output volume is limited to 0 dB FS
  • Zero latency (for LIVE use or for tracking)
  • Works with mono and stereo signals
  • Enhances audio with synthetic signal, not EQ
  • For Windows 7, 8, 10
  • Zip with .dll (no .exe installation)
  • No DRM (Like PhoneHome, iLok, etc)
