VocalSync tightens vocals by aligning one part to another -- and it's essential for matching dialog to picture. Use VocalSync to perfect your parts' timing without splitting and moving clips.

REmatrix Solo

REmatrix Solo is a zero-latency, streamlined, single-layer ProChannel version of the acclaimed REmatrix convolution reverb from Overloud/MoReVox. It features 100 Impulse Response (IR) presets, including plates, halls, rooms, early reflections, and specialty spaces - you can even import your own IRs.

The New Control Bar

Stack, scroll, minimize, and maximize any and all Control Bar modules for one-click access to your favorite tools. When collapsed, hovering the mouse over a module displays its parameters for an even more efficient Skylight environment.

Mix Recall

Never second-guess yourself on a mix again. Mix Recall lets you save and switch to various mix scenes for easy, one-click comparisons. Swap out effects, fader positions, or every parameter so that you can restore an original mix, create remixes, or just entertain a client's suggestion. Mix tracks specifically for radio, podcast, video, or mp3, and then bounce every version in a single export.

Stunning New FX Chains

From single-knob utilities, to boutique digital stompboxes, to sound-generating environments and additional effects, these new FX chains will kick-start your creativity and streamline the production process.
