Smooth Operator

Track-taming just got creative

Smooth Operator combines equalization, spectral compression and resonance suppression into a singular, intuitive workflow. Use it to shape your tonal balance while eliminating harsh frequencies in the process.

The plugin adapts to your audio in realtime and automatically resolves muddiness and bad resonances. This gives you full control to creatively shape your tracks – and bring out more clarity.


  • Intelligent algorithm that adapts to your audio in realtime and automatically attacks resonances

  • Lets you bring out clarity and smoothness across instruments, vocals, drums and mix busses

  • Allows for creative tone shaping by uniting EQ, compression and resonance suppression in one

  • Updated v1.0.1 version eliminates “spectral harmonics” at high threshold levels (HIGH-RES mode)

What is spectral processing?

The easiest way to understand Spectral Processing is to think of it as manipulating the building blocks that make up a digital signal – rather than the actual signal. Our algorithm uses Fast Fourier Transform - or FFT - to break the incoming audio into tiny particles, which are analyzed and processed separately, before being put back together again. This all happens in realtime and allows for a much more surgical approach to resonance detection and rebalancing than what would be possible with traditional audio effects.

While most spectral tools focus on audio restoration, Baby Audio wanted Smooth Operator to be all about creative expression. The plugin is meant for shaping your tone. Use it to compress, EQ and ‘purify’ in one simple process – and know that Smooth Operator has your back when it comes to automatically eliminating ‘bad’ frequencies.


Smooth Operator comes loaded with 64 presets created by friends of BABY Audio - including:

  • Preston Reid (Ciara, Toni Braxton, Lil Uzi Vert)

  • David Nakaji (Post Malone, Aminé, Lil Eazzyy)

  • Rob Kleiner (David Guetta, Sia, Britney Spears, Giorgio Moroder)

  • Neenah (Winne, Mr. Probz, Nana Fofie, Joe Budden)

  • Damien Lewis (Rihanna, Timbaland, Beyoncé)

It's a bit awkward to use. Changing the slope of a curve is pratcally impossible with a track ball. And it needs more nodes.But it does the job and sounds good.
