Packed with features and new sonic capabilities

HYPE embodies high-end mixing hardware, offering dynamic processing tools for compression, harmonics, and stereo width adjustment. It transcends analog limits with over-the-top compression and groundbreaking harmonic overtones.

Three mixing plugins in one elegant workflow

Whether you're thickening drum loops, enhancing vocal tracks, or mastering your final mix, HYPE’s simple three-section design puts a huge collection of powerful tools for mixing and audio enhancement in one simple-to-use plugin.

Multi-band harmonics with no limits

Easily combine multiple harmonic generators and compression algorithms in HYPE to drive, saturate, or enhance signals. Apply distinct harmonic modes across three bands, offering a broad range from smooth and creamy to dirty and distorted.

A revolutionary approach to harmonic overtones

HYPE delivers a full spectrum of harmonic overtones without overprocessing or distortion, thanks to its advanced ADAA algorithms and UrsaDSP's Trajectory technology. This ensures consistent harmonics with minimal inharmonic content, letting you hit the harmonic sweet spot at any gain level.

Multi-band compression with new capabilities

HYPE provides a wide range of compression algorithms for all styles, from subtle to extreme. It features detailed controls for transient, mix, and body, allowing for tailored dynamic shaping across low, mid, and high frequencies.

Six compressor modes

From the extreme Slam to the classic Opto, and the pristine Brick, to the precise Transient, the six compressor modes range from radical to subtle. Combo merges three modes for a unique blend, while Gentle offers elegant, minor adjustments ideal for mastering, providing versatile dynamics control.

Stereo mid/side – it goes where you tell it to

Control mid/side settings across all three bands and independently adjust dry/wet signals. Enhance stereo image and depth, soften midrange frequencies with tone control, and fine-tune sound character for basses, vocals, and beyond.

Improve your mixing choices

Auto Level is integral to HYPE, ensuring changes and enhancements to your mix are unbiased by loudness, enabling improved mixing decisions.


  • A feature-rich set of tools for compression, harmonics, and stereo width controls in one plugin
  • Auto Level feature that underpins HYPE’s functionality, maintaining consistent perceived loudness across the mix.

  • HYPE is Amazing!!

    by Angelo Jannotti
    I like the fresh approach to Dynamics-Harmonics-Stereo imaging. Subtle - Slamming or bringing a dull track to life make your adjustments then turn off the power button!! What an amazing new tool!!
  • Really great

    by fetchachizzle
    Yes, it's just been a day and some hours, but this already is replacing a few of my go-to plugins. It is able to do the job of 3 or 4 excellent plugins that I use on a daily basis - and it sounds… Read More
