Slate Digital has released Fresh Air, a free plugin, to smooth out your high end

It’s raining Black Friday plugin deals at the moment, and now, as promised, Slate Digital has entered the fray with Fresh Air, a new free plugin.

Designed to give you “the smoothest high end you've ever heard without even a hint of harshness,” this dynamic high frequency processor can be operated with just two knobs.

Slate says that, behind the simple GUI, there’s a serious audio engine: think vintage exciter circuits and powerful dynamics processing. As a user, though, all you need to do is adjust the Brilliance and Shine knobs. Easy.

Available for PC and Mac in VST/AU/AAX formats, Fresh Air is completely free, though you will have to sign up for a Slate account. Find out more on the Slate Digital website, but don't hang about as this is a limited time offer.
