I don't normally stop and thank the architect of some amazing work, who I see also answers the support line but you deserve high praises for what you have accomplished. In two days you have given me the tools to elevate my music more than I have done in the last 3 years. I have always hated the sound of limiting, (never found a good one digital or analog) and now with THE HUGE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, I am able to hear my way through the process, finding just the right settings to get a pro commercial sound. Master buss with Sonar X3, UAD Ampex tape emulation, Polysquasher (gentle) The Elephant +3 or so, and final analog gui-ness from a Rupert Neve Portico II. Your products were the missing link. Thanks so much!

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!

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
