JELStudio's "Claire"

Claire adds sparkle, air, grit, glimmer to the high-end of the incoming audio.

(If you buy/own OTTO you get Claire for free)


"Claire" is intended to brighten up dark sounds. To add sparkle, glimmer, air, generally making the top-end sound more vivid.

It works best when used on individual tracks in a mixing-session, but can also (Not always with good results though) be used on full songs (Perhaps old songs/masters you need to brighten up a bit but haven't got the multi-tracks for anymore).

It's one of those plugin where less is sometimes more. When over-done, it sounds like a vinyl dub-plate which has been played a few times too many (Which can actually be a useful effect by itself, but not really the main purpose:)).

It does not EQ the sound, but rather creates a synthetic signal based on the incoming audio which is then blended with the original audio.

The volume-level going into the plugin is not super-relevant, as the generated output-level is automatically adjusted relative to the input-level, but it's optimized for 'normal' VU-levels (So generally around -18 dB FS will keep you in the sweet spot).


Technically it is a 32/64-bit VST2 audio-effect plugin mainly for DAWs and sound/video-editors on Windows, but it can also be used in a LIVE VST-host (for example with LIVE stage-performance audio, or with music/TV home-stereo audio).


A few ideas of what Claire can be used for: to brighten, or make more vivid, the individual tracks in a multi-track mixing-process (Generally this yields the best results), or the overall sound-crispness of a track that has already been down-mixed and/or mastered (The success of this approach depends greatly on the input-sound and is not always useful).

Some of Claire's key-points:

  • Zero latency (for LIVE use or for tracking).
  • Works with mono and stereo signals.
  • Enhances audio with synthetic signal, not EQ.
  • For Windows 7, 8, 10.
  • Zip with .dll (No .exe installation).
  • No DRM (Like PhoneHome, iLok, etc).
