Key Features

Initially, the concept of MAGIC FLOW was as a vocal plugin but expanded to a hybrid channel strip built around Josh’s analog and digital workflow.

  • A Center Display for easy and proper comprehension
  • Master Insertion of Josh’s hardware chain before the digital processing
  • 2 Preamps: one for input and one for output stage
  • High Quality Filters
  • A Peak Levelling Unit and a Dynamic EQ with pre-established parameters
  • A Dynamic Resonance Compressor with a Sibilants Detector
  • High quality Post Compression EQ with 4 different recalls
  • Global Dry/Wet Control
  • A final limiter never exceeding 0

Magic Flow comes in a “Standard” version and an alternative “ZL*” version, which operates at *zero latency and is thus suitable for use when tracking, at the cost of extra processing resources. For further details consult the Magic Flow user's manual in the Overview section.

In Josh’s words:

"Magic Flow is a multi purpose audio tool designed to dial in and craft any source material with superior sonics and flexibility in mind. I wanted to create this plugin with my unique workflow while also streamlining the mixing/recording process to minimize overuse of extra software or hardware. Enjoy!"
