Sweetwater wants to take your music and audio to the next level with our powerful utility plug-ins. Many of the effects and suites you’ll find on this page are secret weapons of the pros. Whether you want to auto-align vocal doubles or give your mix that pro polish, Sweetwater is the first and last stop for all your project needs.
Leveling plug-ins, which you’ll find in iZotope’s Ozone suite and NUGEN’s MasterCheck Pro, get your mixes up to loudness standards (Spotify, YouTube, Apple Music) or help them compete in today’s competitive music market.
Looking to balance an off-center mix? Envelop your listeners in lush 3D audio? The Waves Um225/UM226 and Dolby Surround Tools plug-ins can help you here. Looking for phase-perfect multi-channel drums and guitars? Check out Eventide Precision Time for fatter, punchier tracks.
One plug-in that’s really creating waves with Sweetwater customers is Synchro Arts’ VocAlign. This plug-in automatically aligns double-taked vocals, guitar parts, and dialog, greatly reducing the amount of editing work required by the engineer. Be sure to check out a video demo.
In a class of their own are the Slate Digital VMS and Townsend Labs Sphere L22 microphone systems. These hybrid systems blend real analog mics and preamps with clever digital modeling technology to provide access to those coveted classic mic tones without the expense.
Are you the impatient type? You don’t have to wait for your utility plug-in to arrive with our instant download versions. Just purchase and install from the comfort of your studio. Of course, if you prefer having a physical disk, boxed versions are also available via our fast shipping. Sweetwater also has reduced-price academic versions of many of our plug-ins available to eligible students, faculty, and staff.
Most of Sweetwater’s utility software is compatible with both Mac and PC. But before pulling the trigger, take a quick second to double-check that your plug-in of choice is compatible with your operating system. Make sure your plug-in supports your DAW’s preferred format, too: AAX, VST, AU, etc.
