Auto-Align® is an automatic microphone alignment and phase correction plug-in.
When recording an instrument with more than one mic, sound tends to reach each microphone at a slightly different time, causing some frequencies to cancel each other out and other frequencies to build up unnaturally. This phenomenon is known as the comb-filter effect.
Auto-Align® will analyze your multi-mic recording and will automatically detect and compensate for the delay between the microphones sample-accurately, significantly reducing the comb-filter effect and dramatically improving the resulting sound.
Properly aligning microphones makes for an amazing difference in low-end definition and punch. With Auto-Align® alignment takes only a few seconds, where previously it required spending considerable time trying to time-align and figure out phase issues.
Auto-Align® can automatically detect a reversed polarity mic and compensate for it.
I’ve been using Auto-Align on all the original masters and it’s pretty amazing to hear a track that was already pretty great blossom even more.”

A unique Spectral Phase Correlation Meter shows the phase correlation between the input and reference mics across the entire frequency spectrum.
Auto-Align® detects and compensates for the delay between the microphones or DI box sample-accurately, significantly reducing the comb-filter effect and dramatically improving the resulting sound.
When distant microphones are used, or when some delay is desired to enhance the sense of space, Auto-Align® can time-place the microphones relative to the close-mic’ed source to minimize the comb-filter’s effect. Just click on the NEXT or PREV buttons to navigate between the best phase-correlated settings.
Advanced beat detection-based, downward and upward compressor/expander/gate plug-in.
