Boost is a simple, powerful mix finalising utility designed to get your music sounding as full and polished as possible using a minimal amount of processing.
Utilising cutting-edge low-latency DSP, Boost adds multi-band compression, 4-band equalisation, stereo enhancement, brickwall limiting and filters out inaudible low frequencies to give a fuller, louder and wider mixdown.
Hear dynamics spring to life, drums explode with energy, basslines punch through and high end revitalise with glistening sheen. Boost is placed on the mix buss and can be used to master a processed track, subtly enhance an already finished project, or completely sculpt the dynamics of your song from start to finish, breathing fresh life into your music and readying for commercial release, club or radio play. Take an idea from start to finish using just 4 simple smart controls.
And Boost is not just for the mix buss. Place it on a muddy drum track for meaty width and energetic flare, give vocals a multi dimensional stereo edge, remaster old productions, fix live performances, DJ mixes and voiceovers. Get foley recordings broadcast ready, redefine muddy midrange and make cumbersome, CPU-intensive mix chain processing a figment of the past.
With its enhanced low latency settings mode, Boost is suitable for tracking or can be placed on the mix buss from the outset, making tracks quickly and easily comparable with commercially finished masters. With a plain, easy to use interface, controls are laid out elegantly yet simply, with a ‘Boost’ setting for re-ordering components to give greater gain and bass output.
Ultimate Mix Buss Reference Tool
Used in conjunction with Magic AB, Boost is an all-in-one mix reference and refinement solution, allowing quick, stable comparison between tracks to achieve your desired end result.
The Compression parameter increases the effect of the multi band compression on the audio. Although just a single knob, this macro controls many parameters simultaneously on the incoming signal. Each of the included presets provide a slightly different style of Compression, with varying amounts of make up gain, attack, decay times and crossover frequencies.
The Colour parameter adjusts the spectral balance of the audio through the use of a dynamically interactive equaliser circuit. Each of the included presets in Boost provide a slightly different ‘style’ of Colour which is applied through this parameter. The defining characteristic of this macro is to boost bass frequencies around 50-100Hz while inversely cutting midrange around 2kHz - 4kHz and adding subtle high-frequency gain around 9kHz - 14kHz.
The Stereo parameter adjusts the stereo field of the audio. This control will widen the elements of the sound which are panned between the two L/R channels and leave mono signals unaffected. Each of the included presets in Boost provide a slightly different amount of Stereo Widening which is applied through this parameter.
The Limiter parameter is a powerful compression and peak limiting processor. Capable of transparently ‘shaving off ’ a few dB to slam a mix - for maximum impact - while still maintaining clarity. Each of the included presets in Boost provide a slightly different style of limiting which is applied through this parameter.

Integrating Boost with Other Plugins
PLEASE NOTE - Boost is currently VST / AU Only.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE THIS IS A DEMO VERSION AND WILL PLAY INTERMITTENT SILENCE AT 20 SECOND INTERVALS
New in Version 1.0.2:
- A rare crash when loading multiple instances of Boost on Windows has now been resolved - A rare issue where users were intermittently unable to reload previous sessions with Boost on Windows has been resolved - CPU efficiency while using Boost on idle has been increased
New in Version 1.0.1:
- Demo restrictions have now been changed to intermittent silence every 30 seconds - Intermittent crashes experienced by some Windows users have been resolved - Plugin delay compensation on all DAW platforms now works as expected* - A bug in Ableton Live 9 has been resolved where scrolling through presets caused momentary silences for some users
*For users of FL Studio please note you must enable PDC and then make sure to route every channel to a mixer track for perfect sync. Otherwise the tracks that aren’t routed to the mixer will go straight to the master will not be latency compensated
