Overview

By applying psychoacoustic and audiometric principles, the Vitalizer achieves a verifiable enhancement in sonic quality. The Vitalizer processes only the original signal and generates no artifacts.

Patented filtering techniques highlight the richness of the audio signal in all its detail, while the interactive parameters make it possible to alter the sound in a musical and effective way. 

One of the Vitalizer’s main features is the un-masking of overlapping sounds. The way it works is, in principle, opposite to the way compression formats (MP3, etc.) do: instead of deleting allegedly unnecessary information, it enhances it. In order to do that, the Vitalizer takes into account the perception of a frequency in relation to its volume.

The hidden gem in this EQ is the Stereo Widening circuit, which sounds amazing on stereo guitars, drums, keys, and any other stem buss.

SPL hardware products can be found in the world’s most renowned facilities, and have become a staple for audio professionals ranging from home studio owners to top mastering engineers.

    Great tool, I’m using it on vocals and in the master chain -- great to make a vocal shine and stand out of a mix. Or just to ‘beautify’ the master a bit

    Awesome tone on this EQ; it's another one I sometimes bang on a bus or a tired mix down or an mp3 promo that just sounds too boring. Excellent presets for starting position.

    The Vitalizer is a really handy tool for getting tracks to cut through dense mixes. It's great for bringing out heavy guitars or keys in a layered metal mix.

    The Vitalizer is awesome on stereo guitar tracks. It adds that extra something that a regular EQ cannot attain, and it doesn't add any additional dirt to the track. The stereo width works nicely, and… Read More

    This plugin is a beaut. If I feel like something needs a touch of character or depth that's just not there, this always manages to make it happen. Great on busses or a submix to add a bit of colour… Read More
