Stage 1: Produce
Apply broad strokes to instantly sculpt how you want each instrument to sound.
Add high-end air to vocals, boost the low-end thud of a kick or make any other quick tonal adjustments in an intuitive, distraction-free Produce section.
Produce view’s visualiser allows you to see areas of energy throughout the spectrum to give you a broad overview of the tonal characteristics and to create a pocket for individual mix elements.
Stage 2: Tweak
When you need to get into the finer details, Tweak gives you the tools to manipulate your tracks with immense detail and surgical precision while working quickly and efficiently.
Use Claro’s Tweak visualiser for adapting levels of detail, helpful highlighting of resonances and instant insights that guide you towards making better decisions and a lifetime of healthy EQ habits.
Stage 3: Mix
When you need to step back and look at your mix as a whole, Mix view displays all tracks in one window and highlights any frequency masking issues. Masking issues occur when different sounds compete and collide in the same frequency range, leading to muddiness, a lack of clarity and a feeling of congestion. This is not to say that masking is always bad. Masking can impart body, thickness, glue and cohesion to your mix. So, rather than removing *all* masking automatically, Claro empowers you to learn and decide whether it is negatively or positively contributing to the mix.
If you do want to remove masking to create separation and clarity in your mix, you can use Claro’s unique ‘Invert EQ’ function to cut and boost opposing tracks simultaneously. Use the Invert EQ function to apply corresponding boosts to one track and cuts to another to reduce masking and give each track its own spectral space.
Mid-Side EQ Processing
Mid-side EQ is an advanced EQ technique often essential for cleaning up stereo synths or creating space for vocals.
In Claro, it's as quick and easy as Tone shaping, allowing you to correct, widen, narrow, or make space within each track.
Use the Mid-Side EQ processing to boost the high-end frequencies into the stereo channel to create width or reduce bass rumble in the sides with a high pass filter.

Sonnox Claro Reviews
"You know, I'm a complainer. And really, honestly, everything with Claro is really well thought out."
Adam Hawkins (Twenty One Pilots, Machine Gun Kelly, Yungblud)
"I’ve been using it in every mix since I got the beta and I can’t wait to tell the world. It’s the ease of use, the Mix view where you can see every track at a glance, pair some tracks, compare their EQ curves, do inverse EQ moves to make everything fit. It’s such a huge time saver to be able to do everything in one Plug-In"
Nuno Fernandes (Bryan Adams, Elisa, Diana Krall)
"I love the sound and feel of this Plug-In, and the resonance visual feedback is better than anything else I’ve used"
Mike Exeter (Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Cradle of Filth)
"I've got really into using this Plug-In now, it took a little time but now I feel like I can’t live without it! Mix mode is proving invaluable. It’s amazing!"
Rhys Fletcher (Beta Tester and songwriter)
