Add me to the chorus of people singing praises about Voxengo software. I've just recently started getting into computer audio recording (Cubase 4 on an Intel Mac), and was looking for some improvement over the stock plug-ins. I downloaded a couple of the free Voxengo plug-ins (the Tube Amp and Overtone GEQ), and based on that, will be purchasing some others now.
Echoing what others have said, the Voxengo plug-ins sound musical (what a concept!) and are reasonably priced. It's obvious the person who designed them has a discriminating and musical ear. I was able to make some immediate improvements to a couple tracks with the free plug-ins. I almost feel like I'm using analog gear, due to the warm, musical tone of this software. Great job! I also appreciate the modular concept of the plug-ins, how they all share a number of common parameters, which makes it easier to switch from one to the next.
The Voxengo website is well organized, making it easy to get information on the software. It's also clear that the software is updated regularly to fix any issues that come up. (Wouldn't it be nice if all software companies did this?)
I don't write too many testimonials, but when someone does something right, it should be recognized, and Aleksey Vaneev has done just that. Thank you for designing this software, and making it available to the public.
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.
