Time saver

A great mastering tool to quickly tame the all too common problem of upper midrange harshness(@3-3.5khz) with the option to add back some presence and even saturation. It does this in an analog sounding, ear pleasing way. The dozen or so presets are great starting points. It can be used to subtly sweeten and warm things up or to strongly subdue a truly harsh mix. It’s great to be able to hear what is being removed with the solo filter. In a word - smooth.

Amazing.

I think this is better than soothe on the master. I use it on full mixes.

A Must Have

If you are trying to achieve a true, fat, analog mix free from harsh highs, mids and transients, then this app is definitely for you. There's even a dozen or more presets that will fit just about every flavor you desire. So, there's no need to spend hours turning knobs and faders. Work smarter, not harder.

Amazing

I haven't had time to check it out since purchase but I got it because it works great. My ears can last much longer without the irritating high's in the mix. Thanx again UAD!!

Haven’t needed it on a mix yet, but...

I know this has been billed as a mastering tool, but haven’t had to tame any overly harsh mixes yet. However, it has bailed me out of two instances more than once. DI recorded acoustic guitar parts, as well as a boat load of ancient DAT transfers. It paid for itself
On the latter project in a few hours.
Very unique plug....

One trick pony at its best.

One of my favorites plugins, life saver and ear pleasing tool, so much more important than any other fancy EQ/comp. I don't car if at the end it's just a simple process, it just works.

Saves me Time and like what it does

If I have a track that sounds a little harsh bx_refinement works really well, and is much quicker than piddling around with eq's and de essers.
