"It’s not very often that you find a new plug-in that you envision yourself using on every project. It’s also pretty rare to find one that barely touches your CPU load and yet still makes a huge impact in your overall production quality. Magic AB, from Sample Magic, is just that…magic. It is there when you need it, but completely un-intrusive at the same time. As you can see in the video above, it is quite intuitive to set up and use. With plenty of relevant and applicable options, there are no parameters or options that are non-essential. I pointed out a couple of features that I’d love to see implemented in future updates, but as it stand right now, it is a great plug-in and I whole-heartedly recommend it to anyone who takes their productions seriously.
It’s really nice to be able to manage so many different (up-to nine) reference audio files inside of a plug-in, instead of hassling with bringing unnecessary audio files in and out of projects. You get to avoid the bloat and hassle, and still reap all the rewards! Having the option to save iterations of Magic AB as a preset is brilliant! This means that you can set up specific reference audio inside ofMagic AB, as well as dial in the various parameters the way you like them, and instantly recall them in other projects. So handy to have.
