Get your next mix JUMPING out of your speakers

Product Overview

ANIMATE helps you inject life into your mixes in a precise, versatile and colourful way.

With four different movement modes, each with individual frequency assignments and mid/side functionality, you’ll get your music jumping out of the speakers precisely how you want.

Image supporting EXPAND


Expand mode allows you to dial in a pristinely clean sounding upward expansion.

This increases the volume of signals over the threshold, giving your audio more dynamic range in a transparent way.

Image supporting GROW


Grow mode lets you increase the width of the selected frequencies using a psychoacoustic precedence effect.

Grow lets you spread specific frequencies SUPER wide in a dynamic way like never before.

Image supporting IGNITE


Ignite mode allows you to dial in rich harmonic distortion in a dynamic way based on the input signal.

Ignite can increase the perceived loudness, power and presence of a channel without the pumping effects of a compressor.

Image supporting PUNCH


Punch mode enhances the transients of your audio.

Whether you want to subtly accentuate the high-frequency transients in the mid-channel of your master or bring out serious smack on an individual channel, Punch can handle the task.


Available in VST, VST3, Audio Units and AAX formats (all both 64-bit and 32-bit).

MAC OSX Requirements
OS X 10.8 or higher. 32-bit or 64-bit AU, VST 2/3 or AAX host.

WINDOWS Requirements
Windows 7, 8 or 10. 32-bit or 64-bit VST 2/3 or AAX host.


While the algorithms behind each module sound excellent, it’s the adjustable dynamic and frequency-based response that defines ANIMATE. The all-important modules themselves are great. Expand applies transparent upward expansion at ratios up to 1:4, while Punch does a superb job of subtly emphasising transients or aggressively sharpening them up. Ignite delivers truly delicious harmonic distortion, drivable into decimation if required, and Grow is ideal for dynamically widening mono sources and spreading out stereo ones.
