ReFine is a plugin that allows to add a final polishing to your tracks, busses and masters. It extracts psycho-acoustic parameters from the source and thus allows to add warmth, space and punch to your mixes. This is done level dependent and rather subtle; you probably won't be able to create heavy distortion effects with this plugin.

Version 1.1.0 won't be compatible with earlier versions but 1.1.0 can be installed alongside previous versions if one of the plugin is renamed. Since the amount of controls isn't too high migrating shouldn't be a problem.

The plugin is now open source.

The manual is available here.


  • 1.2.0: JUCE update.
  • 1.1.0: moved plugin to JUCE, added AU format, added x2 toggle.
  • 1.0.6: fixed crash in mono instances.
  • 1.0.5: fixed CPU issue in Cubase during silence.
  • 1.0.3: added support for older VST hosts on Windows, OS X 10.6 support.
  • 1.0.2: fixed denormalisation bug.
  • 1.0.1: fixed high CPU bug (appeared when silence was put in after a signal).

I usually put this on a send, and bleed in different elements here and there, Gives nice subtil warm and width. I quite like this one, find to be unique in sound and very addictive. A real gem.

Fast to dial in, not much to say, in the manual you can find importante facts about this little but powerful tool.

It sits great on my mixbus, adds depth, clarity and some warm attitude, really recommended this one. For free!! Amazing.

I tested it on several sources and found it more usefull in buses and final mix bus as i mentioned above.

Hello, I like the sound of this plugin, although it outputs mono singal in FL Studio. So, I made a Patcher preset around this plug-in for Fl Studio to apply the effect on the left and right channels separately, to be recombined. Currently I don't have a webpage to share my Patcher presets, so if anyone is interested feel free to message me.
