Brno, Czech Republic (July 26, 2018)—Building on its initial MixChecker plug-in, Audified has released MixChecker Pro, adding new features to simulate surroundings and devices.
The initial MixChecker, released in 2016, emulated the sounds of classic reference monitors and several consumer devices, allowing users to hear how a mix would translate to them without having to export the track to a phone or burn it to a CD in order to physically take the mix elsewhere for a listen.
MixChecker Pro adds new features that simulate surroundings and devices. Numerous new simulations of various devices are available, categorized and grouped as follows:
Studio (Studio 4” Vintage, Studio 5” Modern, Studio 6” Modern, Studio 7” Vintage, Studio 5" Vintage, Studio Cube);
Live Sound/PA (PA Disco Pool, PA Disco Stage, PA Cheap Satellite, PA Club Engineer, PA Club Near, PA Club Center, PA Cheap Full-Range);
Computer Audio (Desktop 2” Black, Desktop 3” Wooden, Desktop 3” Red, Desktop 5” Black, LCD Screen 24”);
TV (TV 24”, TV 37”, TV 22”, TV 32”);
Laptop Speakers (Laptop 12” Grey, Laptop 13” Silver, Laptop 15” Black, Laptop 15” Silver);
Tablet (Tablet 9” Grey, Tablet 9” Golden, Tablet 7” Black);
Smartphone (Phone 5” Grey, Phone 4” Black, Phone 5” Silver, Phone 5” White);
In-Ear Headphones (Earplugs White, Earplugs Black, Earplugs Grey, Earplugs Iso Black);
On-Ear Headphones (Studio 30mm Silver, Studio 40mm Black, DJ 40mm Black, DJ 40mm Red, DJ 50mm Red, HiFi 35mm Black, HiFi 40mm Grey, Studio 45mm Silver, HiFi 40mm Silver, Studio 40mm Blue, Studio 40mm Yellow, HiFi 50mm White);
Car Audio (Combi Driver, Combi Co-driver, Sedan Driver, Sedan Co-driver, Sedan Passenger, Minivan Driver, Minivan Co-driver, Minivan Kid);
Radio (Bluetooth Speaker, Small Radio Silver, BoomBox Silver, Smart Home Speaker, Small Radio Black);
HiFi (HiFi Micro Silver, HiFi Micro Black, HiFi Mini Silver, HiFi Floor-stander).
Switching between devices is possible due to the overall gain of all devices being normalized to the same objective loudness using an algorithm derived from the LKFS (Loudness, K-weighted, relative to Full Scale) loudness standard, designed to enable normalization of audio levels for delivery of broadcast TV and other video (as standardized in ITU-R BS.1770-3).
Similarly, simulated environments are also provided, including Exterior Street 1, Exterior Street 2, Exterior Park 1, Exterior Park 2, Exterior Playground, Exterior Station 1, Exterior Station 2, Exterior Subway, Interior Bar, Interior Bus 1, Interior Bus 2, Interior Car 1, Interior Car 2, and Interior Mall.
MixChecker Pro also offers a new Edit mode, allowing users to assign any simulated device to any device button, set the Distortion amount for that exact device, and adjust the Stereo Base width, as well as the Volume of the device. Web browser, mobile phone and tablet control is provided, so users can walk around their studio space while checking the mix.
MixChecker Pro, running $199, can be directly downloaded as a multi-format (AAX, AU, VST2, VST3), 32- and 64-bit native plug-in for MacOS (10.9 and above) and Windows (7, 8, and 10); a 30-day trial version is also available.
