Surgically enhance odd and even harmonics


Analog sound’s most compelling component is subtle harmonic distortion. Cobalt Saphira’s harmonic synthesis engine allows you to add harmonics to your tracks with unprecedented control, by letting you separately introduce odd and even harmonics at specific frequencies, with optional tape sound processing.

Dial in even harmonics to add clarity and warmth, odd harmonics to add a rough edge, or both. Saphira’s harmonic enhancement gives a welcome analog touch to tracks, buses, and full mixes.

  • Enjoy complete control when adding analog harmonics
  • Revitalize buses, mixes, and masters with specific harmonics
  • Add sparkle, definition, and warmth with even harmonics
  • Add edge, with saturation-like effects, by boosting odd harmonics
  • Choose the frequencies where you want to synthesize harmonics
  • Give drums edge and clarity, with odd and even harmonics
  • Augment depth and liveliness with modeled tape processing
  • Vastly more versatile than traditional “exciter” effects
  • Over 50 presets for master bus, groups, and various instruments
  • 7 modes alter the odd/even harmonic balance

    “I love how this plugin can color a sound. It makes the sound feel more real and 3D to my ears, and adds warmth, edge and width. I love what it does to virtual instruments and instruments recorded direct. It really adds that extra element of realness to it. “

    “I love using Cobalt Saphira and The King’s Microphones chained together on vocals. Cobalt gives very accurate harmonic distortion, tailored to a specific vocal range, and the King’s Mics add a particular vintage style EQ. Together they deliver great subtle color. “

  • Dave McMullin
    “I use Cobalt Saphira on cello. Saphira adds some subtle depth and warmth to the cello. Most noticeable is when bowing up high; it thickens and smooths out the high strings without sacrificing the detail in the playing. “
