Voxengo is one of these rare plugin developers who offers high quality professional audio software at a really fair price. I tried their limiter, Elephant 2 some years ago and I just bought Elephant 3, released in September 2008.
Voxengo Elephant is a mastering limiter plug-in for professional music production applications. I tried some other limiters but Elephant, despite is name, is really transparent and discrete and can add some loudness without the usual side-effects, used sparingly like with every limiter of course!
For The Field Where She Died, I’m using another Voxengo plugin which is a mastering comp called the Polysquasher (I love this name!!). It’s a “glue comp” which is really transparent and brings more cohesion to the mix. I find that Elephant and Polysquasher work really great together and are a great and low cost way to finalize your songs, preserving their natural feel and dynamics.
There’s also a free EQ which is quite interesting: The Overtone EQ.
I’m really curious to try other plugins from Voxengo like the GlissEQ, a mastering EQ which seems to be really appreciated here and there!
Voxengo VSTs have become such a critical part of my mixing environment that I will never have a mix on my computer without them!!!
Aboslutely incredible how these VSTs mimic the sonic purity of the greatest analog gear ever invented...
Voxengo VSTs are the answer for any lacking mix. If you are not using these plugins, then you are missing out on the best sounding products available in VST format, bar none!!!
