Hey guys Happy Black Friday! Fresh Air is a FREE plugin that is inspired by the classic Dolby Type A exciter which was actually a modified noise reduction unit!

You can get some incredible clarity on your tracks without things getting thin and harsh. Try it on vocals, snares, claps, hi hats, drum busses, and even full mixes!

Enjoy!

Cheers,
Steven

Andrew Wuepper who just mixed Demi Lovato's #1 "Still Have Me" takes you through Fresh Air.

Cheers,
Steven

I'm so over Slate, but this is pretty good. Nice little sheen without harshness. Thanks, SS.

Is this automtically in the VMR for free, or do I have to claim it somehow? I'm not a slate subscriber, but own a couple of plug-ins outright.

No you have to go to the slate website and download it. It's not added to the VMR.

Anyone compare with Overloud Dopamine? They both emulate the same trick.

Thanks for the freebie but I can't get Logic Pro to work with the Cloud iLok activation. iLok License Manager shows it as an activated licence but Logic (10.6 on Catalina) throws up an activation error.

Thanks! Don’t let the price tag fool anyone, despite being free, this may become an essential tool for you! If you ever wondered how many top mixers got vocals in the 80’s and 90’s to sound so airy without harshness, it was because of the hardware in which Fresh Air is based on.

But Fresh Air’s mods make it even more versatile, so it sounds equally as good on whole mixes if used judiciously!

Crazy I was just trying a demo of Gem Dopamine last night and then this came along this morning. Will save me some $. Talk about synchronicity!

@ steven

How would you compare this to the top end of revival? When would you reach for Fresh Air when would you reach for revival?

Floored by how smooth this thing is. It's like creamy air... Strange way to describe it but you go and listen at how smooth it is and try and come up with a better description.

What is this thing doing under the hood?!?!

Too many... not even worth reading the instructions provided by the dev to learn how. You should pass

This sounds great... which, sucks.. because it’s one of those deals where when you turn it off, your program sounds like it has an oatmeal blanket on it... which always makes me question things... so many questions.

It’s really expensive and classy sounding

No it doesn't. But I think you need an iLok account. I have and used it (iLok license manager) to transfer the license to my computer.
