Baby Audio Smooth Operator Spectral Processing Audio Plug-in

Smooth Operator uses spectral processing to manipulate the digital building blocks of your audio. The result? Tracks that are crisp, clear, and smooooth.

Smooth Operator combines equalization, spectral compression, and resonance suppression into a singular, intuitive workflow. Use it to shape your tonal balance while eliminating harsh frequencies in the process.

The plug-in adapts to your audio in real time and automatically resolves muddiness and bad resonances. This gives you full control to creatively shape your track and bring out more clarity.

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. Baby Audio's 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 real time 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, Baby Audio wanted Smooth Operator to be all about creative expression. The plug-in 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 'bad' frequencies.
