Bring your sound closer.

Human audio perception isn't just about loudness, pitch and timbre.

Our hearing also decodes information about where signals are coming from, and about the texture of any surfaces present.

Using a pattern of early reflections that avoids comb filtering, the Proximity Encoder plugin subtly lifts your material and brings it closer to the listener.


  • Adjustable effect level (-36dB to -14dB vs. dry signal)
  • Automatic make-up gain to match perceived loudness
  • Largely EQ-neutral

How to use

  • Set the "Time Factor" dial to best match the groove of your material
  • Click the display for instant A/B test (still uses CPU as if plugin activated)
  • Double-click to reset a dial to its default value, or hold <CTRL>/<CMD> to fine-tune
  • Use Proximity Encoder on your master bus or on individual audio tracks

Technical notes

  • Available in VST3 format for PC, and VST3 & AU formats for Mac. AAX support coming soon
  • Requires a compatible Digital Audio Workstation or other plugin host
  • ~3ms latency
