After much research into digital limiters, i kept on reading how in test after test voxengo's elephant was always rated as the best.
After demoing it i soon came to the same conclusion. It is highly flexible and ideal for situations where punch and clarity are needed at modern volume levels. It can also be very transparent.
Elephant is now our mastering studio's default limiter. Thanks for a great product!
Amazing product !! and its free what a great thing !
Thank you Voxengo
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 got surprise when I listen to it. I guess I have to get it for my studio for sure :-)
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!
