Pi and Phi

Pi & Phi (π & φ) is our landmark product, designed and destined to impress, and deliver.

Innovation and a lifetime of experience, coupled with cutting edge technological expertise, are some of the ingredients that gave birth to this irreplaceable tool. The basic elements that make up π & φ are the actual numbers π and φ, omnipresent throughout our surrounding living environment. Through years of thorough digital signal processing research, the MIA Laboratory is now able to offer you something novel, and most importantly, unique.

We constructed π & φ, with its ground-breaking and unique sound processing capabilities with one aim: to deliver it to the world of sound engineers, sound enthusiasts and sound evangelists looking for the next level of innovation in the field of digital audio technology.

Words prove to be limited when trying to describe sound, in all its glory. The way is to let sound speak for itself.

Beyond its innovative and enhanced capabilities of simultaneous expansion, compression and EQ, π & φ offers a wide range of other functions: It enriches the mix and each of its separate contents with an overall acoustic effect that can only be described as super-enhanced vivacity and brio, with a warm yet powerful 'sparkle'

The astonishing effect of π & φ can only be appreciated when heard, the closest description one could give verbally being, an overall result of 'more.' The outcome emphasizes musicality and amplitude in a psychoacoustic way, along with smoother analysis of harmonics.

It is a "Phase and Time EQ", a theory based on the logarithmic perception of space-time fused in a plugin.

my "secret" weapon in my gigs.

I had Pi and Phi almost from the first day and now with version MKii I am very happy.

when something must be heard in my mix I use Pi and Phi
it brings the the "sound image" something like in front of the speakers.

there is no other like this, in analog or digital world, it's a category of his own.

everything that pass thru Pi and Fi will be heard no matter what...!!! and that's really great
I have try it in many of my projects as channel insert or as bus insert and it makes everything just sounds better.

It's very easy to use and brings my SOUND very quickly.

MKii version has 2 bands more and sounds even better.

Thank you MIA laboratories.

Have been testing this for the last few days and it really does what it says on the tin-whatever you put through it simply sounds better! I have many exciters and "vintage" EQs and none of them could open up a mix-or single track/group-as well as Pi & Phi. It feels like you can reach inside the sound and the controls are very forgiving too so it's hard to make it sound bad.

Obviously if you add a lot of mid-and-top enhancement then the low end is going to sound less deep in a loudness-matched setup. Apparently this is going to be addressed in a future update, but until then it works great to use their equally-new Musiqual Red, Blue and Green EQs to add low-end weight and make the sound even more expensive. To me these don't behave like regular EQs, but more like analogue colour or tone boxes with added sound-shaping capabilities.

There is no manual and very little other info but when you put Pi & Phi(and the other 3) into a sweetening chain and then take them off(with loudness matching of course), it feels like you've just gone back to making demos instead of records. The plug-ins "envelop" the sound with an open, satisfying, 3D, big-studio quality that is hard to "un-hear". Thumbs up.
