Free Your DAW

Most plug-ins, like reverbs and compressors, you only fire up a few times during a session; you adjust the appropriate parameters and close the plug-in once you're done in order to save precious screen real-estate.

Your metering tools, however, need to be in plain sight at all times. The CLARITY M connects seamlessly with your DAW workflow via a USB connection and allows you to get precise readouts from any output, you need.

With the visual feedback of your mix pushed to a permanent screen, you no longer need to move plug-in windows around to have both your sequencer, effects and meters visible. CLARITY M is quite simply the perfect integration of two worlds.
