Autoformer, this unique dynamic tool was created to save your time and treat your tracks‘ dynamic with minimum effort. It was made to improve your tracks and also to fix unbalanced performances. To iron the dynamic imperfections.

Thanks to Autoformer‘s responsive photorealistic 3D graphic user interface, working with the plugin is a piece of cake. The interface is divided into three sections that represent the processing stages. 


The first processing stage sets the gain and adds color and warmth using a selection of three analog PREAMP types. 


The core feature (BALANCER) is an intelligent volume rider. It is meant to be almost inaudible. Leveler sets the amount of automatic volume compensation while the Seer knob controls the look-ahead parameter – in other words, sets the latency of the track so that Leveller could act as precisely as possible (so do not tweak this parameter during playback).

To soothe the dynamics of your track without changing your signal’s spectral character engage the fast modern COMPRESSOR. No color, just fix. And yes, there‘s also the fourth section which simply controls the output volume.

About United Plugins

As implied in the carefully chosen wording for an apt appellation that really represents how the Prague-registered Limited Company came about and what it collectively creates, United Plugins is a federation of small, independent development teams comprised of individuals involved in the music industry. Indeed, the founding triad of FireSonic, JMG Sound, and SounDevice Digital can count engineers, producers, and artists amongst their ‘united’ names. Needless to say, all were seeking the freedom to create the tools that they would like to use in their studios and on their projects. And all agreed that this could be better achieved when working together. Though United Plugins’ proliferating product portfolio — now numbering seven plugins (including FirePresser, FireMaster, and FireCobra by FireSonic; Hyperspace by JMG Sound; and Verbum Entropic Hall, FrontDAW, and Royal Compressor by SounDevice Digital) — may not necessarily be for the musical masses, surely someone, somewhere will always find those tools to be a perfect fit for their own music productions… just like those inventive individuals forming United Plugins’ founding independent developer triad!

Autoformer is compatible with major VST/AAX/AU DAW applications on both Windows and macOS. The price is set to €99/$110 but until April 5 you may get it with a 70% discount (€29/$33). A 15-days fully working unlimited trial version is available.
