If you could see my list of vst plugins and dxi plugins of every brand I have to choose from you wouldn't believe it. When trying to make a choice as to what to use when processing a track or mix, I would usually turn to the most expensive and name brand plugins in my arsenal. One day I noticed I was turning more to Voxengo plugins. When I was auditioning various plugins to find the most usable processing for a particular track, I found myself time after time returning to Voxengo plugins, and for goodness sakes, these were the free plugins. I remember one day the light went on and I thought," you know what? These are very good plugins!" I have been engineering for nearly 35 years and now that I have my own personal studio, I will always audition Vorengo plugins first, why waste valuable time trying anything else.
I just finished my first major mix using Warmifier. I put this plug up there with the best tools in my digital or analog kit. Its a lifesaver. You say the drummer had brass that sounded like ass? - warmifier will sweeten it. Say the vocal doesn't pop into the pocket? Warmifier's vocal preset somehow makes it a lot more focused. ... and I could go on. The raves on gearslutz.com were correct.
Its so quiet and transparant that you can use it on a lot of tracks without any negatives as far as I can tell. Ok, this is the joy of a guy with a new toy, but... I would compare the effect on a track to something like the difference between a focusrite red and an api pre. Subtile - but the api costs a thousand dollars more. The Warmifier was 34 dollars. I would have paid a lot more. t.

I am so thankful for the tools that you have made. I am able to achieve control over sound that is simply impossible with "two-knob plugins." They certainly have their place, but I prefer to understand the character of different flavors of sound and mix/transform music with conscious intention, just as songwriters do so when creating their work initially. Your tools enable me to express what I see/hear in my mind's eye/ ear.
