Waves has announced the availability of Vitamin Sonic Enhancer, which they describe as a multiband harmonic enhancer and tone-shaping plugin that can make any track sound powerful and full of spark by mixing an enriched version with the original signal. They say that, with its zero-latency processing, Vitamin caters to studio and live mix engineers alike; Used as an insert on any track or bus, Vitamin instantly delivers a warm, vital result that is comparable to what users would get from a parallel chain of EQ, compression and saturation processors, but without the hassle.
A spokesperson had this to say, "Vitamin's controls are intuitive, easy to use and immediately responsive, letting users smooth or accentuate punchiness and dynamics, determine the crossover frequency points between the plugin's five bands, and control the mix of the direct signal with its enhanced version. To top it all off, when Vitamin is in stereo mode, each band has a width control that lets users create wider sound images or make room for a vocal right in front of the mix – a great tool for mastering. No matter what it is used on, Vitamin opens up the sound in a way that complements and enhances all mixes, ensuring they get all the nutrients they need."
