Dynamic Grading 1.3 now available

We are delighted to announce the release of Dynamic Grading v1.3, the latest update to its groundbreaking dynamic processing plug-in, designed to offer audio professionals a powerful and flexible solution for mixing and mastering.

Dynamic Grading v1.3 development has been driven by user feedback and introduces several highly requested features and workflow improvements. Even better, this update is free to existing users.

What’s new in v1.3?

Enhance User Interface Layout and Design

The GUI has been refined for clarity and efficiency. Level meters and curve displays are now always visible, with rearranged sliders that show current values, editable via keyboard. The grading handles feature a slimmer and more intuitive design.

Improved DSP Engine with Variable Stereo Link

Users can now seamlessly transition from fully linked stereo operation to dual-mono, or anywhere in between, thanks to the new Variable Stereo Link slider.

Source Learn

This feature automatically analyses the Dynamic Histogram and suggests initial settings for source ranges, maintaining effective ratios for punch, body, and floor ranges. This significantly speeds up the initial setup and adaptation of existing settings to new source material.

Reference Compare

A one-button A/B comparison tool allows quick comparisons between the current setting and the state when the plugin window was last opened. Users can set the current “reference” state manually by holding the Alt key while clicking the Reference Compare button.


Familiar Undo and Redo buttons provide the flexibility to tweak audio dynamics with confidence, knowing adjustments can be easily reversed.

Safety Limiter

To protect against unexpectedly loud peaks when expanding the punch range, the Safety Limiter automatically reduces output levels when the output peak exceeds +6 dBFS.
