Roth-AIR is a mixing tool for easily adding airy, crispy presence to your audio.
This is achieved by a combination of multiband compression and gentle saturation of the highs. It enables for a stronger, more consistent presence of high frequency material and works particularly well with vocals, synths and strings.
The process is made easy by a simple user interface, automatic makeup gain and a combined function "AIR" knob.
Roth-AIR is available for free in 32-bit and 64-bit as VST and AU (OS X only) plugins for Windows and Mac.

This plugin was developed in C++ with JUCE - Big thanks goes out to ROLI for this great framework, as well as Vincent Falco (DSPFilters) and Martin Zuther (Squeezer) for their open source contributions to the community, which this project has greatly benefited from.

Fantastic plugin. I love the cool minimal interface rather than an unnecessarily cluttered artwork interface.
I use it in an FX bus and add it sparingly for extra sparkle to almost every track. Works superbly.Read more

Nice plugin. Thank you! It can breath but also destroy audio. It saves my harsh hihats and make them more in back rather than spiking out of my mix. I dont know how it will work in club systems if it distorts to much but on my monitors it sounds sweet and back but also hifi. It can tame the spiking hihats if you want just mix it to your taste. If it can distort and smear highs less (obviously) it would be excelent and 10/10 :)Read more

Nice modulatro fx.
This was my #1 vote for the challenge. Superb plugin for those who invest in that highly elusive art of "listening" for what is needed and then masterfully adding "just" the amounts needed. A little goes a long way here. Will attempt to find the problem of phase as mentioned above; although it seems that the EQ may have more to do with that than the plugin itself.
Hi praise for this valuable plugin....would love however, to have a better GUI, some preset-start-points, values for parameters and a quick A-B switch as this plugin can "colour" rather quickly. In truth I was surprised it did not land in top 3.
IMHO however, the #1 spot this year is an amazing plugin. I saw it after my vote....interestingly I am not sure if it would have changed y mind about this one.
Thanks for Roth-Air and I look forward to other offerings from this developer.
