Sonible Balancer is part of the Focusrite Plug-in Collective and is offered free. Balancer is an automatic processor that “learns” a short section of audio and then applies an adaptive smart filter following a certain, preset sonic profile.

The profiles provided are for: kick, snare, hi-hat, drums kit, bass, acoustic guitar, electric guitar, keyboards, and separate female and male vocal profiles. There is also a Universal profile or default mode. It takes only seconds to scan an audio track and then you can use any of three overall timbres or Flavors: Warm, Neutral, and Bright. Furthermore, there is an Intensity fader to raise or lower them as well.

I tried Balancer on all sorts of sources in Pro Tools and I found it a good tool for trying on kicks, snares and vocals. I had fun purposely us- ing the wrong profile! I liked using the vocal profiles on a kick drum! So there is room to experiment here even though this plug-in has limited parameter controls.

Sonible is free, all fun and excellent for anybody from beginners to professionals. To join Focusrite’s Plug-in Collective for access to many great partners and free software. Simply register any Focusrite hard- ware product, and then look out for a new offer every couple of months.
