faGuitarAlign – Automatic Phase Alignment / Mic Blending Plugin

faGuitarAlign will radically reduce your workload when recording electric guitars, basses and basically everything with strings attached to it! Its revolutionary X/Y Pad lets you quickly find the right sweet spot between the correct phase and the mix of your different tracks resulting in a perfect blend of both! And to make this task even more smoothly for you it also has an automatic alignment feature which accurately finds the right phase offset for you! With this reliable tool you’ll be able to save a huge amount of your valuable recording and mixing time you can now spend with exciting tasks! And further more you’ll be able to quickly achieve a coherence and depth in your mix you may never have had before!

Suited for a wide range of recording situations

Either if you want to make your phase alignment by ear or automatically, the integrated Phase Density Scope gives you reliable visual feedback in every possible situation. This exciting concept is derived from a Vectorscope, which you normally would use in a stereo tool, and carefully optimized and enhanced for phase alignment purposes.

Inspire your creativity

faGuitarAlign is carefully optimized for every kind of recording involving one sound source and multiple microphones and / or DI tracks. We have a lot of people using it creatively for recordings with fiddle, cello, double bass, piano or even choir tracks. It’s creative design will inspire you to go beyond the known possibilities of a regular alignment tool.

Practical usage

The plugin is designed to be used on a stereo bus with the source tracks routed and panned correctly to it or optionally routed through the side-chain input. It’ll then phase align and blend both together and output it either in mono (standard) or with a stereo width of your choice. You can even enhance the original stereo width up to 200% to get a wide image of the instrument.
