    Your Cymbals. Clarified.

    Mixing overhead and room tracks has always been extremely challenging no matter how good at mixing you are or how great the equipment used is. DF-CLARIFY was the first plugin targeted at optimizing your cymbal recordings to sound more pleasing and musical. DF-CLARIFY 2 uses a proprietary algorithm developed from years of real-world mixing experience and intelligently applies it to your source recording. Clarify your cymbals like never before and take control of your cymbal mixes.

    New EQ Match

    EQ matching doesn’t need to be complicated or difficult. DF-Clarify 2 allows you to quickly sidechain an external source and apply EQ matching to the source sound. Fix terrible guitar tones, give your mix a more radio EQ curve, or find the perfect bottom end. Whatever you need EQ matching assistance on, DF-Clarify 2 is your best weapon of choice.

    Take Control. Get Total Clarity

    Whether your cymbals need drastic surgery or minimal taming, DF-CLARIFY allows you to quickly and easily obtain the perfect cymbal tone you’ve always sought after. Adjust the intensity of the clarity with the smooth knob. The weight control allows you to focus where our proprietary algorithm applies its strength. The soften control allows you to relax the top end of your cymbals in a very musically pleasing way. Your cymbal recordings will take on new life and musicality.

    A Decade + Of Better Sounding Cymbals

    Cymbals, no matter how well recorded, usually sound harsh and have some unpleasant elements. We’ve developed our proprietary algorithm over many years of extensive testing and refining in the real world. DF-CLARIFY has been proven for over a decade now on many well-known, billboard charting recordings and has even been used in our award-winning drum sample libraries. Now our secret weapon is yours to clear up your own recordings. Make your cymbals the most attractive sounding pieces of brass with DF-CLARIFY 2.
