Only thing that affects audio is 7 band EQ.

isnt this basically a limited "match EQ" ?
If your plugin is a Synth-edit/synth-maker creation, Say So.
If not Make a Mac version of your Plugins Please.

I've blind tested this on a few of my semi finished tracks and I seem to constantly pick the Youlean version of a track afterward. I must say, I am mighty impressed with the concept, and so far mighty impressed with the execution.

So far, the only thing I could suggest for future updates is more presets (though I am still enjoying the 4 provided), and perhaps a suggested auto gain after the Learn so that the volume ends up comparable to before. I find I am consistently adding about 6 to 9dB after Learn.

Great plugin!

Yes, but it is made to be used for mastering purposes.

I have experimented with peak normalisation, and loudness normalisation. In the end, I decided to not include it. I will think about this again.
What presets would you like to see?

Well so far Warm and Warm Club have both produced really favourable results for me when I set the mix knob to 50%.

I am not entirely sure what thought processes go in to producing and mastering audio, so I don't really know what different presets would look like. I guess if there are other genres that have common techniques for mastering, those would make cool presets. Like perhaps audio for certain types of playback devices or mediums. Such as TV quality audio standards, movie quality audio standards, iPhone quality audio standards, stadium quality audio standards etc. Whenever I am trying to mix for these, I have no idea how boomy, tinny or muddy they will sound in their native playback scenarios. But I have to believe somewhere in holly wood they just know, "For the version of the movie that goes to theatres, have this specific frequency range boosted, this one cut... ... then it will sound perfect in most theatres"

Perhaps some other genres of music and common styles from different eras. Again, I don't know much about the mastering process, but I have a feeling there were standards in the 80s that are different than standards now. Or even down to specific bands.

Ever since I first heard of the app called Har-Bal, I always wondered if you could scan a track and gain it's frequency balance as sort of a template, then run other audio through it to try and match that particular balance scheme. Do you think Freq could ever create presets based off analysis or a loaded in track?

I have analysed some disco tracks from 80s, and they have similar balance to a "Club" preset.
I will think about TV and movie.
I could make balance matching function. I will see if this is possible.
