Features

Alex Audio Butler introduces a new workflow that helps video editors deliver great sounding videos quickly, easily and consistently with automatic mixing.

  • automatic voice leveling
  • 1-click vocal compression
  • automatic music volume correction
  • auto-ducking for music during speech
  • 1-click master compression/dynamics & hard-limiting
  • automatic export loudness correction for online (YouTube, Vimeo, Facebook) or broadcast

The plug-in works by “listening” while you edit, and creating mix settings internally based on your high-level choices. No more thinking about dB’s and Hz’s. As if you leave audio to an assistent (a butler as it were…). Future additions will include instances for mixing Sound Effects and Ambience.

Supports

Early Access

From the start Alex Audio Butler has been developed in collaboration with video-editors to make sure it fits everyone’s workflow. First in private beta until enough features were added and issues were ironed out. But now the plug-in has proven to be a valuable time-saver for video-editors, we’ve released it in Early Access for a one-time per user price of €79 (a 20% discount of the €99 it will be on release of v1).

Video editors of all skill levels (freelancers, teams/companies, hobbyists, YouTubers) from over 25 countries have used Alex Audio Butler already. With many of them using Alex Audio Butler in their daily or weekly workflow, saving time on every project.

Reactions

  • “Just slapped the trial into a project to check it out… dude, that’s pretty impressive.”  Mr_Randy_Watson on Reddit
  • “Mograph guy here. I installed the demo the other day and used it to slam out a VO/music track in under 5 minutes. I usually hate audio and leave it for last, making it one last annoying thing standing in between me and a finished video. It sounds better than what I could do manually given hours. Next project I’ll know what I’m doing and it’ll only take seconds. Definitely going to buy this.”  FunKev on Reddit
  • “I am looking forward to the release with ambient, nat sounds. SFX, etc. — very subtle and effective over. Better than Essential Sounds in PP, IMO” bobbykeyskc on Reddit
