Amplio is a way to enhance boring and dull sound. It's a 3 band Equalizer with adjustable bands and additional multiband effect modules. The plug-in is originally designed to enhance drum patterns but it is powerful enough to be used on any type of sound. Reverb effect routable to any of three bands will add more space to mix and Soft Limiter will prevent any clipping on final output.
Version 2 changes:
- New multiband Noise gate with envelope controls will help you totally change your beat and create something new.
- Total overhaul of user interface, faster load and smaller file-size. Improved controls. You can now use right mouse click to set default values and double right mouse click to set value to zero on all controls. Holding shift while dragging will increase sensitivity for better value settings.
- No more overlapping band control points on Frequency splitter.
- Improved Reverb and fixed wet/dry mix.
- Low band saturation now working correctly.
- Improved soft limiter to work better with distortion module.
- Control the stereo field with new multiband stereo balance module. Handy gadget for centering bass frequencies.
- Assembly optimization of all modules in order to save as much cycles as possible. Even with new noise gate CPU usage is same or even better than in previous version.
- Adjusted all existing presets and added new 14 new presets. Total 66 presets including Amplio presets that use Distortion module.
Version 1.1 changes:
- additional optimization (up to 12% CPU usage reduction).
- added knob readout for reverb module.
- new distort module (see the attached audio demo).

Where did this plugin come from? a 3 band "everything" effect?? It actually looked useful... I thought there must be a catch or some other compromise, so I downloaded it to find out.
The GUI: Nothing superfluous, no screw heads or ventillation slits, no nostalgic marketing fantasies, just pure usefulness. I find sliders to be the easiest for the eyes to gauge at a glance. I've never seen a multi-FX plug with such a small gui that intelligently fits so much value in one non-animated or multi-page oriented place. Maybe I have, but I don't remember, and I never felt like making a review of one before.
The Sound: Super tight sounding, no fluff, no snake oil, nothing that "only an audio phd can understand." I would have no qualms whatsoever putting this in a mastering chain. It actually does something to the sound, and you don't need to look at your meters to make sure, it's a plugin that does just what you expect it to, but better.
Overall: Everything is right where it should be on this plugin. It's a small arsenal of effects that can easily replace 5 times its weight in other quite good plugins, and aside from the limiter and reverb (yes it has reverb!) everything is multiband. Yes, yes and yes! I'm giving this plugin a 10 for overall high level of quality, as well as an unbeatable price-performance ratio :)
