Under the hood

SMASH uses a series of compressors and saturators all calibrated to the one main control. The harder you drive the control the more of each stage you will hear.

Creatively Simple

Engineered for workflow

SMASH was designed for writers, producers and hobbyists that need a versatile option for dynamics and saturation with a simple interface and workflow. SMASH can be used as a subtle effect to add vibe and glue or it can be used as an intense parallel processor.

Built in mix knob for easy parallel processing.
Over 40 mix ready presets to get you started.
Built using the same award winning technology as our flagship products.
