Baby Audio Smooth Operator v1.0.1 (WiN/MAC) [MORiA] screenshot
MORiA | June, 12 | AU | VST | VST3 | AAX | 8.6 MB
Meet your new mix assistant Smooth Operator combines equalization, spectral compression and resonance suppression into a singular creative experience that’s instant and intuitive. Use it to perfect your tonal balance and add a touch of ‘HiFi’. Our spectral detection algorithm adapts to your audio 44,100 times per second and automatically eliminates fatigued frequencies. This gives you full control to shape your signal and bring out more definition.

1- Pull the middle circle down to increase the effect level. Smooth Operator automatically attacks the most dominant/fatigued frequencies first, even with a straight curve. You may not need to do more than this.
2- Move the 4 outer nodes to shape the tonal response. Preserve frequency areas by moving the nodes up, or remove frequency content by pulling them down. Use your mousewheel or trackpad-scroll to adjust the Q.
3- FOCUS controls how surgical Smooth Operator gets. At 100%, each frequency spike is processed independently. Lower focus values will give you a broader, more balanced, response.
4- Engage SOLO to audition different parts of the frequency spectrum separately during node hover-over.
5- Engage SIDE CHAIN mode to duck your signal with the frequency balance of another track in your mix. This feature could have been a plugin in its own right(!) It allows you to create a hyper-surgical side chain effect where the exact frequency make-up of a lead track can be used for ducking a secondary track.

What is spectral processing?
The easiest way to understand Spectral Processing is to think of it as manipulating the building blocks that make up a digital signal – rather than the actual signal. Our algorithm uses Fast Fourier Transform - or FFT - to break the incoming audio into tiny particles, which are analyzed and processed separately, before being put back together again. This all happens in realtime and allows for a much more surgical approach to resonance detection and rebalancing than what would be possible with traditional audio effects.
While most spectral tools focus on audio restoration, we wanted Smooth Operator to be all about creative expression. The plugin is meant for shaping your tone. Use it to compress, EQ and ‘purify’ in one simple process – and know that Smooth Operator has your back when it comes to automatically eliminating artifacts.

Smooth Operator comes loaded with 63 presets created by friends of BABY Audio - including:
- Preston Reid (Ciara, Toni Braxton, Lil Uzi Vert)
- David Nakaji (Post Malone, Aminé, Lil Eazzyy)
- Rob Kleiner (David Guetta, Sia, Britney Spears, Giorgio Moroder)
- Neenah (Winne, Mr. Probz, Nana Fofie, Joe Budden)

- Switch between three color modes (Pink / Green / Blue)
- Plugin window fully resizable

Tested on new MacOS 12 Monterey

Thank you for yet another seller post

What do you mean by "seller post"? Just curious, haven't heard that phrase before.
  Member 30.11.2020 16 530
probably typo, i guess he meant "stellar". #PMA
people do become slaves to their own easiest techniques

Works fine in Mac Mojave (installed right over previous v1.0). Some instructions would have been nice, but I assume it was "Install, then run the license.pkg"?

And ... Monterey? Ye gods. I'm sick to my stomach already.

The correct PATH for Windows is C:\Users\YOUR_USER\AppData\Roaming\af854ba56b229a56c422472ee764eba8, not the one included in the txt.

Thanks for sharing!

Seems like all Baby Audio Licences are stored in that folder.

You're AMAZING thank you! Worked for me. :)

another notching plugin that ruins good audio
  Member 12.08.2019 1 42
If you have good audio you don't need to use this... It's that simple.
  Member 6.02.2021 32
It can also be used creatively, like reverb on a send with a sidechain.
  Resident 21.06.2011 3 754
Yeah ... but you can pretty much say that about any plugin or piece of analog outboard gear (compressors, limiters, EQs, saturation devices, etc.).

How does this compare to Soothe? :)
  Member 5.08.2014 94
DSEQ sounds better than Soothe
  Member 18.10.2016 8 207
DSEQ and Soothe are completely different plugins.
  Member 23.06.2014 5 236
Well, on that note, Soothe 1 and Soothe 2 are completely different plugins... the interfaces are the same, but the de-harsh algorithms in Soothe 2 are complete re-writes from the ground up (according to the developer).
  Member 5.08.2014 94
Both Soothe and DSEQ use spectral processing to dynamically reduce resonances. They are very similar plugins and would be used to achieve similar results hence my comparison (my opinion DSEQ sounds better and is more flexible).

and then there's that old good MSpectralDynamics by Melda

About 1.0.1 update:
The update introduces a new High-Res algorithm mode, which gets rid of "spectral harmonics" when you push the plugin hard. The new algorithm also offers more depth and definition over-all.

Users can switch between the new High-Res and Classic algorithm modes by clicking the "M" icon in the preset bar.

Additionally, the update offers some general performance improvements and fixes a bug where the plugin would occasionally analyze the side-chain input incorrectly.
Stay at home. Protect yourself and stay healthy. Keep your loved ones safe. Do not endanger others. Bless you all. Please...

No audio plugin can ruin your music. Only lack of knowledge about the tools you use can do that.

Knowing what plugins to use and what plugins not to use is part of the knowledge.

Going, to be honest. TERRIBLE instructions on where to place a license file. Becomes all too familiar with "crackers" etc.
I like to PARTY!
  Member 4.01.2021 40
Nice sound. I like it.

Installing was a bit tricky for me at first because after the installation I couldn't find the folder where to copy the license to.
But the folder was created automatically when I first loaded the Plugin in Cubase. From then on the folder was in the following location:


Then I copied the license file to this folder and now it works.
