Automatic Phase Alignment & Mic Blending Plugin

faGuitarAlign revolutionizes the process of Automatic Phase Alignment! It'll radically reduce your workload when recording electric guitars, basses, and basically everything with strings attached to it! Its revolutionary X/Y Pad that lets you quickly find the right sweet spot between the correct phase and the mix of your different tracks, resulting in a perfect blend of both! To make this task progress even more smoothly there is also an automatic alignment feature, which accurately finds the right phase offset for you! With this reliable tool, you'll be able to save a huge amount of your valuable recording and mixing time, which you can then spend with much more exciting tasks! You'll also be able to achieve coherence and depth in your mix, quickly; something that you may never have experienced before!

Automatic Phase Alignment – Suited for a wide range of recording situations
Whether you want to make your phase alignment by ear or automatically, the integrated Phase Density Scope gives you reliable visual feedback in every conceivable situation. This exciting concept is derived from a Vectorscope, which would be used in a stereo tool, and carefully optimized and enhanced for phase alignment purposes.


Inspire Your Creativity

faGuitarAlign is carefully optimized for every kind of recording, whether it involves one sound source and multiple microphones and/or DI tracks. We have a lot of people using it creatively for auto aligning recordings with the fiddle, cello, double bass, piano, or even choir tracks. Its creative design will inspire you to go beyond the known possibilities of any other auto-alignment tool.

Routing

The plugin is designed to be used on a stereo bus, with the source tracks routed and panned correctly to it, or optionally routed through the side-chain input. It’ll then phase align, blend both together and output the result either in mono (standard) or with a stereo width of your choice. You can even enhance the original stereo width by up to 200% to get a wider image of the instrument.

The plug-in itself is only suitable for blending two inputs. It's also possible to cascade this sort of routing to blend several tracks together. In order to do that you would add a new stereo bus, insert another instance of faGuitarAlign and assign the output of the first faGuitarAlign left panned to the new bus and assign the third input right panned to it. With this cascading principle its possible to use an almost infinite number of input tracks and Plug-in instances.
