This time, Techivation truly pulled the trigger and built some really unique, user-friendly plugins aimed at eliminating unwanted muddy, harsh, and unpleasant frequencies. Techivation has released yet another incredible multipurpose plugin.

Before continuing with our review, I’d like to point out that M-Clarity is available for a 14-day free trial, so it’s always a good idea to test things out before buying it.

M-Clarity

To reduce unwanted frequencies and resonances in audio files, M-Clarity is a dynamic resonance suppressor plugin and a perfect go to plugin to choose. With the use of a spectral shaping algorithm, this plugin can precisely identify and soften harsh, boxy, and muddy frequencies in any audio files.

Because of its flexible and potent characteristics, it’s a great tool for producers and mixers, and just like all Techivation’s plugins it’s also very easy to use and you can just insert it on your track and hear the magic.

Let’s see what the creator of this plugin said about the M-Clarity:

“Achieving a balanced and clear sound can be difficult due to the presence of unwanted muddiness and boxiness in most cases. However, with M-Clarity’s spectral shaping technology, you can easily eliminate these issues while retaining the essential frequencies in your audio. M-Clarity’s spectral shaping technology applies dynamic processing to the frequency spectrum, effectively reducing unwanted sounds in the mid and low-mid and low frequencies, resulting in a clearer and more balanced sound.”

Once more as I mentioned for audio editing, mixing or even mastering process, The M-Clarity functions like a specialized tool or add-on. It is intended to enhance the audio files’ sound quality by removing any unbalanced or unwanted frequencies. The plugin employs a special technique created which called spectral shaping, which is basically a fancy way of stating that it tweaks the audio’s various frequencies to improve the sound.

Two alternative setting modes, Soft and Hard, are offered by the M-Clarity. As you may expect, the Hard mode is more aggressive whereas the Soft setting reduces more gradually. Later in this post, we will go over its key features.

The images below demonstrate how this plugin will respond to your audio signal on a scale of 50% to 100%. However, I must remind you that when you apply M-Clarity to your track, it will respond to the signal that it scans effectively. The image below only demonstrates how it decreased the basic signal wave.

Let us now explore "M-Clarity" features in more detail:

  • Attack & Release: They control how fast the plugin reacts to variations in the signal’s frequency content and how long it takes for processing to cease when the variations fade out.
  • Input Level: You can monitor your input signal from Input level meter.
  • Output Level: You can monitor your output signal from Input level meter. 
  • Suppression: Controls how far the targeted frequency components decrease to enhance the audio signal’s overall tonal balance and clarity.
  • Intensity: When the intensity is low, the plugin reduces small spectral peaks without changing the overall contour; when the intensity is high, the plugin hunts for larger, wider-band resonances.
  • Focus: Sets the plugin’s level of selectivity; at higher levels, only the strongest resonances will be effected.
  • Hard & Soft modes: Depending on your unique audio requires and what you want to achieve for the tune, you can choose between aggressive and precise or softer and smoother processing options.
  • Diff & Filter: You can modify the frequency modifications by using these buttons to hear the differences between the original and processed audio sources.
  • Frequency Slider: With the help of this slider, you may identify and choose the frequency band that contains unpleasant difficulties, which the plugin will subsequently amplify.
  • A/B: The A/B buttons enable easy comparison of different options to determine which works best. You can also copy the same settings from A to B or vice versa to test small tweaks and adjustments and compare their effects.
  • Internal On/off Switch: The plug-in includes a bypass/on the control for quickly enabling or bypassing the effect. This control helps prevent potential clicks that can occur when using the on/off switch from the DAW host.
  • Menu: Provides, Undo/Redo, Presets menu, Save/Load settings, GUI settings, Activation setup, Over-sampling, and more.

Final Thoughts

Once again Techivation made some new plugin that became my favorite go to, and fix it right away plugin. I’ve stated it before in my reviews of Techivation’s products, but I love the way they create their plugins. They made it so simple for anyone opening their plugins for the first time in an effort to lessen the confusion. Therefore, in this case, you don’t have to spend hours learning how to use that tool; instead, you may quickly find what you need. That’s a big deal for producers like myself because you want to spend more of your most valuable asset, time, on creating the ideas that just came to you. Otherwise, if you become distracted by other things, you will forget what you were attempting to do.

You have the ability to shape and balance the overall tone of any audio source with M-Clarity. This plugin can help you find out the ideal balance. Some people would prefer it if the frequency spectrum could be controlled visually. But I find it beneficial that I can develop the ability to hear rather than relying just on my eyes when I’m mixing. Even if having that choice on M-Clarity would be wonderful, I would continue to use the UI as it is now. But because that’s simply my own choice, I can’t speak for everyone. 

You can use the M-Clarity plugin on anything since it is so flexible. It sounds great on harsh guitars, piano, drums (especially crashes and hi-hats), and vocals. I would want to experiment with applying the M-Clarity as a side-chain dynamic on the bass and drums, for example. Though I haven’t tried it yet, I soon will.

If you keep up with my reviews and blogs, you know that I always advise you to try any plugins before purchasing them. The only person who can tell you what is helpful is you. The only person who needs to enjoy the product and figure out whether it actually works for you on your project is you. Therefore, just download the trial version, use it on your projects, and see how it performs for you.
