Hands-on Dynamic Processing Version 1.2 – Playfair Audio release an update to Dynamic Grading Plug-In and start November sale!
Playfair Audio, Hannover/ Germany, November 2nd, 2022 (ictw) – Playfair Audio today released Dynamic Grading 1.2, the first update to the sound design and dynamic shaping plug-in with a completely new paradigm for handling and designing the dynamic behavior of audio signals. Its Augmented Intelligence approach enables advanced dynamic shaping with ease, much of which is hardly possible – let alone practical – with traditional dynamic processors.
Dynamic Grading’s unique dynamic histograms provide precise insights into the dynamic range, making it easy to identify how the punch, body, and floor of audio tracks work together. Sophisticated dynamic sculpting is as easy as grabbing some graphical handles to squeeze or stretch different parts of the dynamic range. For example, a full-sounding drum kit with a precisely seasoned room sound and punchy transients is just a few clicks away. Audio becomes a piece of clay in the hands of a creative sculptor.
Dynamic Grading v1.2 is a free update for registered users and adds a host of highly requested new features and workflow improvements.
New Feature Highlights include:
- Improved handle editing
- Amount knob to seamlessly dial back processing
- Optional level meters
- Optional curve display
- Smart Latency
- Resizable UI
Dynamic Grading supports AU, VST3, and AAX formats (64 Bit only).

About Dynamic Grading
Dynamic Grading is an entirely novel approach to dynamic processing of audio. Unlike traditional dynamic processors like compressors or expanders, which are notoriously hard to adjust, Dynamic Grading lets you mix with more confidence than ever before. It does so by displaying an easily comprehensible histogram of audio dynamics, providing intuitive and easy-to-use means for manipulating the audio’s dynamic „gestalt” graphically, with the help of sophisticated and musical dynamic processing algorithms.
The Dynamic Grading method is inspired by digital image processing tools, where histograms and grading curves are well-known and established to adjust the dynamics of brightness in images. With Dynamic Grading, these concepts have been adapted and tailored to practical use in music production and audio engineering for the first time.
The plugin is designed to make mixing a song, adjusting movie dialogue, podcasts, and mastering albums an intuitive, fast, and enjoyable experience, as easy as drawing a stick man.
