FireCobra combines the accuracy of the digital world with the live randomness of the analogue. Behind its simple user interface, there's more technology than you'd expect. FireCobra intelligently analyses the audio signal and makes it sound punchier, more powerful and better in general. It makes the mixes better with nearly no time wasted on setting it up. Just put it on every track you'd like to enhance and set how much. Quick and easy and sounds unbelievable.

FireCobra Key Features

Intensify your audio materials

Intensify is the main feature algorithm FireCobra. It intelligently analyzes the input audio and makes the output sound tighter and fuller. It brings up the drowned and overheard elements that are hard to perceive and attenuates elements, which tend to kill and bury the others. And the best thing is that all it takes is a single knob!

Give it a smack

The real punch is what you need. Inspired by rare analogue devices the Smack feature creates unique and pleasant harmonic distortion. It makes the audio sound rather dirtier but way more authentic and audible in the mix.

Analogize your tracks

The Analogize algorithm is based on a simulation of classic analogue saturation units. Most audio signals benefit from a bit of the analogue warm valve mojo.

CPU-friendly - use on multiple tracks

Even though the contemporary computers' performance almost reaches the sky there's always need to administer it wisely. FireCobra is a highly optimized unit designed to take the most from your CPU and exploit the newest AVX2 and AVX512 architectures.

Ridiculously simple to use

In most cases, all you need is the DRY/WET knob. Increase its value to get more enhancement and vice versa. Always keep in mind that sometimes less is better and if every track in your mix will be too powerful, the mix will become crowded. But that shouldn't stop you from experimenting and tweaking your sound the way you wish.

Hassle-free software protection

No iLok, no dongle nor internet access is required for activation. Our software uses license files to activate your software. You can freely use the purchased software on all your computers as long as you are the user.

Realistic 3D yet flexible GUI

The photorealistic graphic user interface of the plugin gives you the feeling you are touching the real hardware. But it easily adapts to your needs. You can always drag the arrow in the bottom right corner to change its size - make it smaller to save valuable screen space, or enlarge it to make it easier to use.

15-Days unlimited trial version for FREE

All the descriptions are nothing comparing to putting your hands on the plugin. No saving limits. No noises. No boundaries. Engage the plugin in your project for real and fully exploit its powers for two weeks.

64-bit audio quality at ANY sampling rate

The plugin provides the maximum audio quality you can get. It uses internal 64-bit audio processing and can handle any sampling rate. 192 kHz or even higher.

Smart bypass

The intelligent way our plugins manage bypassing ensures that you don't get any click or harmful noises when automating the parameter. It also compensates for latency ensuring that the bypass states are perfectly in sync with each other.

FireCobra is wonderfully warm - dramatic in a subtle way. No hint of artificiality at all - and as close to vintage hardware as I've heard from this kind of plugin.

It really is a "make it sound better" button. Kind of brings things to life. Brilliant.

I was working on a mix which had many layers of acoustic guitars. We needed one particular guitar track to stand out, but making it louder got in the way of the vocal. Using FireCobra on this guitar track I was easily able to bring it out from the other layers and make it easier to hear without actually raising the level of the track. The result was very pleasing sonically. The various controls give you a range of flavours for doing this sort of work without things sounding distorted or muddy, which is often a problem with other saturators. I can see I'll be using FireCobra a lot to help separate elements of a mix.

I am addicted to FireCobra, it's on every single vocal I've done in the past few months!

It’s super easy to use and the exorbitant FireCobra will even shapeshift a boring DAW click track into a world-class performance.

FireCobra is brilliant when you need to add some extra crunch and harmonics to a guitar, can be a subtle lift or a total face transplant.

An intriguing plug-in that can improve some tracks and mixes using only a few adjustments, but getting the best results requires some experimentation.
