LUXE is an audio effect that compresses and saturates an audio signal in a quite subtile but musical way. It's very useful for making a track "fit in the mix" and can be used on anything from a drum bus to a vocal track.

The slider sets the amount of the effect. Under the hood this parameter controls a set of internal (non-visible) parameters which makes LUXE an easy tool to use for quick results.

The OUT knob sets the output volume and ranges from silence to +6 dB.

The FINESSE algorithm offers an alternate frequency response and adds some edge to the internal saturation module.
