Create complex compositions and multiple delivery formats!

Each track corresponds to a channel strip on the mixer. You get real time 6 band parametric EQ, along with expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics on every single track. In addition, clip time warping lets you stretch or compress audio without shifting pitch. It works at the subframe level for absolutely perfect synchronization! The powerful busing structure has several main, sub, and aux buses so you can prepare multiple deliverable formats all at the same time!

Full Automation

Record automation for virtually any parameter, even plug-ins!

Comprehensive clip-aware automation includes touch, trim, slow-mo, preview and fill modes. In addition to automating traditional parameters such as pan, level and EQ, Fairlight audio lets you record changes in every single parameter during live playback! You can even automate changes in native and VST plug-in parameters over time!

When it comes to recording, DaVinci Resolve’s Fairlight audio lets you produce multi layered recordings quickly and easily. Real time punch in lets you record at any moment during live playback and you get a complete set of sophisticated ADR tools for replacing dialog.

Fairlight Audio Accelerator

High performance low latency performance!

For the absolute best performance, add a Fairlight Audio Accelerator to your system! You’ll get blazing performance with amazing sub‑millisecond latency for hundreds of tracks with full real time processing of EQ, expander/gate, compressor and limiter dynamics, and up to 6 real time plug‑ins per channel!

Incredibly flexible monitoring lets you choose between multiple speaker sets!

The advanced Fairlight monitoring system handles buses up to 24 channels wide. Sources can be selected from internal buses or external inputs and sent out to 16 different sets of speakers! You also get customizable fold-up and fold-down when crossing between formats. For example, if you’re monitoring 5.1 on a pair of stereo speakers, it automatically folds down for output to 2 channels. For cinematic setups, you can add an optional B-Chain processor for installations with up to 64 speakers!
