The basic elements that make up π & φ are the actual numbers π and φ, omnipresent throughout our surrounding living environment.

Pi & Phi utilizes the harmony of these magic numbers in order to introduce an innovative way of spectral processing, creating an acoustic effect that can be described as "super-enhanced", with a warm yet powerful "sparkle".

Pi & Phi MkIII features 10 bands that cover the frequencies from 80 Hz up to 16kHz, along with a "Super Low" and a "Super High" band to complement the extremes of the spectrum.

This tool is ultimately capable of enriching a mix and each of its separate components with minimum phase distortion, enabling the user to precisely shape the spectral balance as dictated by the Golden Ratio.

Pi & Phi also stands out for its "demasking" capabilities, as it is exceptionally suitable for making an instrument or vocal track 'cut-through' and stand-out from the rest, in an otherwise cluttered mix.

Overall it is a very effective yet easy-to-use tool, as well as very 'forgiving', since the amount of distortion introduced is minimal compared to the increase in "loudness" perceived, even in extreme settings.

In this latest version, Pi & Phi utilizes the signal processing path of our 358 Enhancer for its Super-Low area, delivering the round and solid low-end that 358 Enhancer is well known for. The updated GUI also incorporates an Input/Output spectrum analyser, while the controls are placed in a way that corresponds to the frequency bands displayed on top of them.

Since there is no other plugin similar to π & φ, we suggest that you treat it as something new, experiment, try and discover ...

I am using Pi and Phi since the first day and I love it. I found it very easy to use and brings the sound that I want very easy and very fast
For me, everything that pass from Pi and Phi sounds better and I have an impression that the sound comes "in front" from speakers
In my plugin "strips" there is always at least one Pi and Phi, in my "money channel" or to the master section.
