Zy­nap­tiq are re­spon­si­ble for some of the most tech­no­log­i­cally and con­cep­tu­ally im­pres­sive plu­g­ins around, and In­ten­sity is their best yet. Built, bizarrely, on a fa­cial recog­ni­tion al­go­rithm, it’s a mix­ing and mas­ter­ing pro­ces­sor, de­scribed as an “in­fi­nite-band com­pres­sor that thresh­old-less-ly op­er­ates rel­a­tive to the in­put sig­nal”. Strap it over any­thing – tracks, buses, full mixes – and raise the In­ten­sity pa­ram­e­ter to in­crease the lev­els of sig­nal el­e­ments deemed “de­tails”, im­prov­ing the sound in pres­ence and dy­nam­ics to an of­ten jaw-drop­ping ex­tent. In­ten­sity is an au­dio soft­ware mir­a­cle.
