Overview

Precision Enhancer kHz Plug-In

Specialized Tool Designed to Enhance High Frequencies and Breathe New Life into Dull Tracks

The Precision Enhancer kHz is a sophisticated tool with a simple control set, primarily designed to bring dull or poorly recorded tracks to life. However, with five distinct Enhancement “Modes”, the Precision Enhancer kHz will find uses on virtually any source. It can be used to minimally massage the middle and upper frequencies of a mix, or drastically alter the presence or dynamics of individual tracks or groups. Unlike other enhancers that function by frequency delay or filtered clipping, the Precision Enhancer kHz works on specialized techniques of equalization and dynamic expansion that can be used as a highly versatile effect.

The five Modes (A, B, C, D and the shift-clickable “All”) present various control configurations to support the widest array of source material. With Modes A and B, the filtered audio is mixed in with the dry signal according to the Effect control. For Modes C, D and All, audio is passed through a unique upwards expander where the expanded audio is then filtered before being mixed with the dry signal. For these modes, Effect is used as a fader on the way into the expander. The release can be adjusted to either Fast or Slow via the Speed button, giving a greater range of dynamic/frequency enhancement. For Mode C, the sweepable filter applied to the expander's output is identical to the filter used with Mode A. For Mode D and All, the expander's output is passed to a set of filters in parallel. Finally, the Precision Enhancer kHz includes control over the final Output control with metering to compensate for gain changes created by the effect.

    It is like getting extra air
    by M. Di Lorenzo(Saturday 8 August, 2015)

    This plugin is excellent on OH's when the acoustic didn't help. Is is great on vocals also, it gives you that extra air that make the difference. It is very useful, I find a new way to use it in every mix. Just go easy on the modes, some of them could be radicals, but this could be used on… Read More

    Hello again Highs
    by S. Tanner(Saturday 25 July, 2015)

    The Precision Enhancer kHz Plug-In is a very good processor and problem solver for me. I often edit spoken Words where I need to remove a lot of background noise and sometimes with drastic settings. After that often the voices sounds very dull. It is not a problem for the Precision… Read More

    Love the precision line
    by . (Wednesday 15 April, 2015)

    The precision line doesn't get as much attention as the retro emulations (which are fantastic), but the precision line is so musical and useful as a compliment to other stuff. Read More

    Perfect companion plug
    by C. Husband (Wednesday 28 January, 2015)

    I was having great luck tweaking mixes with the Hz plug getting nice bottom adjustments, so why not try out kHz on the top of the mix and sure enough this is a great companion to the hz plug I'm very happy with the speedy quality results I'm getting! Thanks again UA Read More

    This is great!
    by J. Hatula (Monday 12 January, 2015)

    I was really surprised how well this brings things to life. TBH I've only been using the default settting, usually going for 1–5% touch, but it's really great for drums, vocals, synths...anything that needs a little bit of extra crips to bring it up in the mix. I'm super happy with the… Read More
