One of my most used Voxengo plug-ins (besides Cakewalk's Perfect Space).
Voxformer really took a shine when you went from version 1 to version 2.
It works perfectly for controlling vocal tracks and getting them to sound upfront yet smooth without putting 5 plug-ins in my effects bin.
The oversampling also makes a big difference in increasing the quality of the plug-in (as well as for all of the Voxengo plug-ins that have this feature). I go to 2x usually.
I am a 31-year-old musician that has been singing and playing guitar for 17 years. My two brothers and a lifelong friend have been writing and performing music together for over 10 years. We have gone to local studios and paid tons of money only to be rushed, overcharged, and unhappy with the end result of our music. Therefore, we decided to record our latest efforts ourselves. I studied, researched, practiced, and sought advice from several forums. I was happy with everything about our project, exept my vocals. They just sounded "dry" and "metallic". I couldn't put my finger on it, but my vocals sounded very weak next to our music (we play alternative rock...think Coheed and Cambria meets The Mars Volta). The Warmifier paired with the Voxformer is an absolutely astounding solution. My vocals sound rich, warm, and polished. Believe me, I've tried several plug-ins (compressors, EQ's, Modulators, etc., etc.) with less than satisfying results (glitches, poor quality, system crashes, you name it) but these two Voxengo plug-ins are an instant fix. I really am surprised at the difference this plug-in makes. It's almost imperceptable....very subtle, but definately there! Extremely easy to use.....I use two presets that come with the plug-ins "Warmer and Richer" on the Warmifier and "Smooth as Silk" on the Voxformer. I will be posting this on the Voxformer page as well. Thanks Voxengo.....
I thought I'd drop you a note just to say that I have no negative issues with the plugins. I like using all the ones I have and love the sound. I find them easy to use and understand. The pricing seems very fair to me as well. I also wanted to especially note the look of the plugs. I prefer the straight forward layouts as opposed to very elaborate GUI's or emulations of "vintage" looking devices.
