Clean Sound Simplified
Continuing our collaboration with Integraduio, Clips brings you a clipper, compressor, and gate packed neatly in one plugin. Combined with its other powerful features, Clips is a superb companion to your mixing and mastering sessions. For a detailed review, visit Integraudio’s Top 7 Clipper Plugins roundup.
Despite its name, Clips isn’t just a clipper. You can quickly switch between a clipper, a compressor, and a gate, within one easy-to-grasp interface. Whatever your dynamics issue is, you’ll be able to fix it with Clips.
Make It Loud
The loudness war has been an ongoing discussion for decades, and there is no way around it. Matching the loudness of other records is a necessity for sounding professional. Clipping is one of the best techniques to do this. Use clips on individual tracks to tame unnecessary peaks and get immediate results. When your mix is ready, squeeze every last drop of loudness out of it using the “Out = Ceil” button, which turns Clips into a highly capable maximizer.
Process Only What You Need To
Clips includes multiple features to help you process just the parts of your audio you need. The Multiband section makes handling only the problematic frequencies easy by splitting the incoming audio into three separate bands. For control over the stereo field, clips can be toggled between left/right and mid/side modes. This allows you to manipulate your stereo image in endless creative ways without causing phase issues.
Seeing Is Believing
Visual representation is always really useful when it comes to mixing. Tiny changes that make a huge difference in the big picture can be really hard to tweak without actually seeing what you are doing. Clips makes it easier to make informed mixing decisions with input and output meters, transfer function representation, spectrum analyzer, and configurable oscilloscope.
Toggle between light and dark modes to alter the looks. Which one will you prefer?

NOTE: Due to my own error, I had to change the manufacturer code inside the plugin for version 1.0.2. This, unfortunately, means, that if you have purchased an earlier version of the plugin and updated it to the latest one, the plugin will have to be rescanned inside your DAW. Another unfortunate consequence is that old projects that have previous versions of the plugin might not be able to open the new version for the same reason.
If you would prefer an earlier version over the latest one, let me know, and I would be happy to send it to you. 🙂
