Woaaa - I just updated Elephant to the latest version as well as I purchased the new Harmony EQ... I am completely blown away by the Harmony EQ - there was always that cryptic "boost" knob in the old version - which usually sounded great, but was not really controllable - so I usually ended up not using it. Now with the new Dynamic Section as well as the realtime analyzer.. Wow!
In addition I just stepped over the graph feature in Elephant. Great great great!! Ok - watching a waveform has nothing to do with mastering.. But I do love to watch that. I am most sure we all do that.. Before I had to open an exported masterfile in Wavelab, haha - now I can see what is going on :)) Now that is really a cool feature!!
Thanks so much for the HarmoniEQ update. It sounds amazing. I'm finally getting the sounds on my songs that I've been trying to get for years. I use it in my mastering chain. It gives me a airy presence that's not harsh. The compressed settings are just great. They give me a smoothness that I've been looking for for my solo classical guitar pieces that have been difficult in the past.
The mastering chain I've been using recently, all Voxengo, is Tapebus, CurveEQ, Polysquasher (also a great update-wow!), HarmoniEQ, Elephant. I've been having a lot of success with that combo but I'm wondering if you have any suggestions or feedback about it. Thanks for your great work.
I've only been using Voxengo mastering plugins for a short time, and already they have become a core inclusion in all of my new projects and in many of my old ones.
I've been able to re-release clearer, brighter, smoother versions of tracks that I thought could never be lightened-up.
My listeners have already sent me glowing feedback about the quality and spacialization of my new and re-released mixes, since having incorporated Voxengo products.
I use almost the whole array of products in different combinations in different productions with fanastic results... though it's hard not to go overboard!
While some plugins are "too subtle to be heard", there's no question they modify the /feeling/ of the music; more solid, more smooth, and more enjoyable!
I plan to purchase the remaining pieces missing from my collection in the near future.
Thanks Voxengo, for sweet sounds and sweet deals.
