I have had a 'bedroom studio' for the last few years and when it came time to look for mixing and mastering tools outside of Logic's own I did a lot of research into the different brands on the market.  Voxengo's was a name consistently associated with high praise.  Having bought numerous plug-ins from you I attest to the robustness, usability, elegance and effectiveness of the Voxengo tools and the audible improvements they made to my music.  The price, when looking at that of the competition, seems pretty cheap.

I use Crunchessor (powerful all-purpose compressor), Drumformer (great results) and Voxformer, Varisaturator, GlissEQ and HarmoniEQ and the smaller ones, like StereoTouch (so good), Warmifier (very subtle when used correctly) and LF Max Punch (instantly rewarding).  When I master I always use CurveEQ (brilliant design), Soniformer and Elephant.

As an amateur, it's hard for me to appreciate just how good these plug-ins are, because I've not tried a lot of the comparable tools from other companies, but as Voxengo always does the job in the way I want, I've no desire to look for any replacements.  When I used Elephant, I knew I wouldn't need another limiter; it doesn't add any colour to the mix and it's incredibly powerful.  The entire mix is simply elevated, louder, with no apparent negatives.  The only one I have no idea how to use is Soniformer, but the presets are really solid, so I don't feel the need to investigate further.

The saturation, EQ and compressors in Voxformer helped me fully realise what my voice could be.  I had no idea my vocals could sound so full and warm until I used it, and now my singing has matured to match that sound so well that I don't even need to dump loads of effects anymore, just any quick preset on the Voxformer and there you go: thicker, sunnier, glowing.

I'm so stoked I came across this site, and I will definitely get the Polysquasher in the sale this summer.

Thank you again for your products.  With every new project I find new ways to get the sounds I want with your tools.  Voxengo VSTs are truly part of my workhorse arsenal.

The latest example is LFMax and LFPunch.  At first I thought they were nice enough to buy, but I didn't use them much until recently.  In fact, I had almost considered giving them up.  But recently I sat down with the tools to really see what they're made of -- and that's when I came to really discover their potential in ALL my mixes!

With a clever combination of Crunchessor for sidechaining, LFMax, and LFPunch for all tracks with low-frequency content, my tracks sound ten times better.  I had always thought 'low end will always be sloppy, there's no way to make it sound good'.  I was wrong!

I was always trying to repair slop in the midrange and unbalanced highs with simple EQ, but with LFMax, LFPunch, and Crunchessor, I'm able to tame the low-end and get the sort of solid, even response I've wanted in a wide range of listening conditions -- headphones, studio monitors, and consumer systems with a wide array of subwoofer quality, tone, and loudness "features".

Dear Mr.  Vaneev,

I am using Your tools for professional CD productions, broadcast an TV, too.

And it is about time to say thank You!

I am enjoying to work with all Your plugins every day.

Nowadays we have many plugins being programmed to be used by non professionals, as long as they look good and have all kind of bullshit-addons to disturb studio computers from working smooth and efficiently.

I appreciate Your way of seeing the things from the point of music professionals and sound engineers in terms of quality, pricing, and handling parameters as it should be technical wise.  The optical appearance of the tools are made for an everyday use in industrial production.  Thanx a lot.

All the Best

Yours,

Michael Schneider, TEControl, Germany
