Proven handy for de-harshing a few edgy sounding hard rock/metal projects in combination with EQ. The range and speed in the dynamics section especially useful. As always: tread carefully. - Pro mastering engineer
Well, it worked :)

I had a problem with a badly recorded vocal. It was harsh and very ESS:y. BX_Refinement solved the problem nicely. Very easy to use as well. I have a feeling I will use this on other sounds as well.
Makes everything sounds smoother and it's so simple and easy to use. One of my go to- plugins.
Great PlugIn, I do not regret to buy it, and I start to use on my tracks and master.

I love me this plugin a lot in place of a de easer it’s cool to be able to roll the harshness off of a signal and to add the presence rite back on within one plugin and then you can add some processing and character using the other options Using oscillation and then some .
Mix deadline upon me, of a band though very talented, was very rushed through this recording.... i.e. A little rough around the edges, and a little high on the peaks. I picked this BX Bad-Boy up for just such a conundrum, and slapped it on the Vocal and Melody stem... and on the default setting, BAM! my mix was done :) Cheers guys!! Can't wait to try it on some masters too.
At the moment, using the bx-refinement on a parallel bus for the of the saturation ... I like to buy . P.S Thanks to everyone !!!
Bits for Refinement
by little cloud
I just used bx_refinement one minute ago...again. I had to compile a vocal for a radio show that was clipped and from 3 different sources. The disparity was obvious and refinement was what I turned to to 'sort it'. The radio personality that needed it was happy with the end product again, All thanks to bx_refinement. I quite like the GUI graphics...whoever came up with that layout is a thinker as it explains exactly what it does. Thanks Alliance for these great plugins.
Sounds better than soothe to my ears
Nice plugin to control the harshness
by Martijn van Dongen
You can use this on on practically everything that sounds to harsh. It has a learning curve but when you know how to use this plugin it does a really awesome job.
