DaVinci Resolve Early Access

Automatic Audio Mixing has come to Blackmagic Design’s DaVinci Resolve!

Early Access

We’re proud to present the first public version of Alex Audio Butler for DaVinci Resolve. The simplest way to automatically mix audio for all your video projects.

A big thanks for everyone who expressed their interest 🙏, we invite everyone who has contacted us to start using it now!

After a lot of testing Alex Audio Butler for DaVinci Resolve in-house this Early Access Release allows you to use it in your productions, and us to learn if there are any edge-cases we might’ve missed. DaVinci Resolve so many different options and workflows that it is impossible for a small company like us to test everything, but rest assured that the most used workflows are supported, and we’re building on the extensively used and tested Premiere Pro version.

Future: the plug-in suite has exactly the same features as the Premiere Pro version except for one thing: the Export Report in the Status Window isn’t there yet. This does not affect the audio quality, and a work-around has been described below. The export report will be added later, but we’ve decided not to let it hold up this release.

Installation & Usage

Export Report Status Window work-around

When you start your Render inside DaVinci Resolve keep a good eye on the Status Window. In the future this will say “Exporting” while rendering, and after the render has finished will either say “Success” or “Incomplete” (the latter meaning that Alex Audio Butler encountered unanalyzed audio, so the render needs to be re-done to be sure the audio mix is correct, see the guides for more info).

For now it is still possible to be 100% sure that the mix has succeeded: if during the render the Status Window never switches to “Analyzing” you’re good to go. This means it stays in “Updated Analysis x minutes ago” where the number of minutes should be higher than the render time.
