Easily Add Clarity & Depth to your Master Using Psychoacoustics

We designed Focus to make one of the mastering industry secrets available to you using psychoacoustics – right out of the box.


Focus by SoundSpot

Focus takes care of all the wizardry behind the scenes, creating this psychoacoustic processing chain while keeping the effect mono-compatible.

All you have to do is to adjust the filterband to highlight any important elements in your master you want to stand out.

This technique can take your mix into a completely new sonic realm, making your kick drums punch through and helping lead vocals and instruments sit effortlessly in the mix.
