Detail, Clarity, Density, Loudness

INTENSITY is a new kind of audio processor for mixing, mastering, and sound design. Built on techniques typically found in facial recognition algorithms, INTENSITY brings out a sound’s inherent detail, increases its perceived loudness and density, and adds insane amounts of clarity. The unique algorithm carves out important signal features – making sounds sound more like themselves – and is operated with essentially one control. Between the proprietary algorithm and an optional soft-knee saturating limiter in the plugin’s output stage, INTENSITY also excels at attaining maximum loudness and creating a beautifully aggressive tone.


  • Mastering-grade processing for more detail, clarity, density, and loudness.
  • Intuitive and fast workflow using a streamlined set of controls.
  • Proprietary INTENSITY circuit with optional frequency-dependent BIAS function.
  • Additional precision soft-knee saturating limiter at the output stage.

Think "Compressor"

So what IS this thing, then? You can think of INTENSITY like an infinite-band compressor operating in relative terms – whose time constants are zero, and which is controlled by artificial intelligence at audio rate – making it possible to adjust the process with essentially just one knob.

Except that this description would be completely inaccurate, as INTENSITY is absolutely NOT a compressor, and works in a completely different way. There's no RMS detector, no threshold, no ratio, no attack or release time. It doesn't pump or modulate in any other way. It doesn't overshoot and it works regardless of absolute levels and input type.

That said, the compressor analogy does serve to give you an idea of when to use it and what for.

Across the Board

INTENSITY is equally suited for processing individual tracks like speech, SFX, instruments - including guitars, bass, and piano – as well as full mixes, multi-channel film stems, drum busses, and other complex content. This makes INTENSITY an indispensable tool for music producers, mastering engineers, sound designers, video producers, broad/podcasters, forensics professionals, audiophiles, or virtually anyone to quickly and easily add clarity, definition, and perceived loudness to their audio projects.

Fast, Faster, INTENSITY

This plugin is probably the fastest way to get a great sound. The actual, real-world usage story goes pretty much exactly like this:

  • Insert plugin
  • Adjust INTENSITY amount
  • Enjoy the result.

In some cases, you may additionally:

  • Adjust BIAS Amount and/or Curve
  • Activate the saturation.

System Requirements

  • MacOS 10.12 Sierra - 12 Monterey
  • MacOS version 10.8.5 and above may also work, but are not officially supported
  • Windows 7 and above
  • Intel Dual-Core CPU or better (i7 or better recommended)
  • Apple Silicon supported via Rosetta 2
  • Free iLok account and iLok License Manager
  • iLok Machine and iLok USB licensing methods are supported
  • Compatible host software

    Please note: MIDI functionality depends on the implementation of the Host software.

    Plugin Formats

    For AAX Native 32-bit, the minimum required Pro Tools version is 10.3.6

    CPU Load

    While they are highly optimized, Zynaptiq plug-ins use a LOT of CPU due to the complex nature of the magic they perform. It is recommended that you set your playback buffer size to at least 512 or ideally 1024 samples for optimum performance.

    As the plug-ins sport unique features not found in any other software, we highly recommend reading their manuals to ensure you get the most out of them!
