A Plugin That Improves Your Mixing & Mastering Process?
A/B referencing your track against a commercial track is a hugely beneficial mixing and mastering trick, but it can be fiddly and annoying process – open multiple programs, set matching volume levels, constantly Alt/Cmd & Tab between programs to skip quickly from one track to another etc.
Magic AB solves this problem.
It runs as an effects insert on the master output on your DAW allowing you to load up to nine tracks (WAV, MP3, MP4 etc.) into it, hit the power button next to the one you want to play, and instantly switch between your current project and the reference material in pristine, transparent quality, regardless of the processes already on the mix bus.
Perform Instant AB Track References in Your DAW
Reference tracks often provide invaluable guidance, giving you a framework to help structure and mix your session and provide your ears with a much needed refresher.
A/B referencing is now simple with Magic AB – simply hit the big A and B buttons switch between your track and a commercial one or swap the waveform display for an even bigger pair of buttons that can be assigned a MIDI CC.
Give your ears a chance to re-calibrate between mixes with manually changeable cross fade times. Flip in an instant, or allow a transitions of up to 2000ms.

Simple, Feature Rich and Intuitive Interface
Magic AB‘s interface is simple and easy-to-use, yet jam packed full of useful features.
The main area of the interface is the waveform display which shows an overview of the entire reference track at the top of the interface, with the zoomed portion of it underneath. Each channel has a level control, for balancing, and the level of each reference track can be offset from this using the gain fader under its slot.
Balance the relative volume of mixes with extensive, accurate, easy-to-read metering – particularly useful for critical mastering sessions. The clear, ergonomically designed GUI with bold waveform display means you’re always comparing like with like.
Using a smaller screen? Do it all ‘in mini’ with Mini AB – the same powerful feature set at a tenth of the size; perfect for those using smaller screens!
Compare Full Tracks or Specific Parts Using Loop Points
If you want to just reference a particular part of a track (eg. a cymbal or a riser) Magic AB makes it an easy process with the option to create loops for repeated playback of a section.
Play the reference track from the precise point you want to hear and loop the section you want to focus on – there’s no need for tiresome rewinding and endless internal waveform navigation.
You can compare the reference track and the mix at any point you choose, or if there are particular parts of different tracks you want to reference, you can load them into the other channels and set loop points for each. The loop range can be doubled/quadrupled/halved/ quartered in length at a click or adjusted manually.
Compare multiple mixes quickly and simply by creating and saving your own ‘go-to’ playlists to radically speed up your mixing and mastering process.
The deal ends in:
Multiple Formats: Compatible with Every DAW (32bit & 64bit)
Magic AB comes in multiple formats, meaning its compatible with pretty much every DAW out there!
The plugin installer is available in VST, AU, RTAS and AAX formats (32bit & 64bit ) and is all but invisible on processor power. Magic AB’s light, refined design means setting it up as a default on your mix bus is a breeze without draining resources.
If required, plugins can be added post Magic AB to provide a sounding-point for program material with or without additional processing.
