Auto-Align 2.1 from Sound Radix

New spectral phase optimisation and workflow speed benefits

Sound Radix Auto-Align v2.1

Sound Radix has introduced Auto-Align 2.1; this advanced audio alignment tool claims to bring a new level of refinement and efficiency to the audio production process.

Auto-Align 2.1 eliminates comb-filtering, minimises transient smearing, and spectrally optimises the phase of each microphone to deliver the full and defined sound captured by the mics. The new version takes a step further by significantly speeding up the alignment workflow, introducing a new spectral phase correction module, a refined algorithm, and a more intuitive user interface.

Streamlined Workflow

The new version of Auto-Align is designed to streamline your workflow. With just one click, Auto-Align 2.1 can align all of your microphones in a single pass. This groundbreaking feature saves you valuable time and ensures that your audio is perfectly time- and phase-aligned, resulting in improved clarity, size, and stereo image.

Auto-Align 2.1's Spectral Phase Optimization feature corrects phase shifts that can occur within specific frequency ranges, resulting in a more coherent and richer-sounding audio signal. When using filters during recording, different frequency bands can experience varying phase shifts, leading to a distorted and unclear sound. Spectral Phase Optimization automatically detects and corrects these phase shifts, ensuring that your audio is perfectly aligned and sounding its best.

The new version also includes improved core algorithm, group time alignment on/off, track-based spectral phase optimization, four preset locations for easy comparison of different settings, and the ability to export/import alignment settings to streamline workflow across projects.

Auto-Align 2.1 has already earned praise from industry professionals. Multi-platinum award-winning producer/mixer/engineer Greg Wurth says, "What Auto-Align 2 does on drums, bass or guitar is just unbelievable." Meanwhile, 10X GRAMMY-winning engineer Darrell Thorp adds, "I have Auto-Align 2 as part of my drum plug-in chain that I import into every new mix or song that I start."

Availability & Pricing

Auto-Align 2.1 is available now for $199. It is compatible with macOS 10.9 or higher, requiring 64-bit Intel CPU or Apple Silicon and Windows needs 64-bit Intel or AMD CPU, Windows 10 or higher. Plug-in formats include AAX, Audio Unit, VST3, ARA2.
