A friend of mine asked me to take his father's acetate recording from 1955 and "clean it up" for him. I tried Bias Peak Sound Soap... the results weren't great. I tried Steinberg's Denoiser... the results were marginal with a fair amount of background "chatter". So I downloaded the Redunoise demo plugin by Voxengo... it was great... the best results by far. So I ended up buying it 15 minutes later.
I use the Voxengo Tube Amp plug on damn near every single project...
I find it invaluable for some rather unusual uses...it brings accoustic instruments to life, warms vocals quite nicely, even works well on drums..or entire mixes!!!
I freekin' love this plugin, and i know you will too... you can hearit at use here:
http://www.songplanet.com/jimipocius on virtually every single song!!!
You won't find a better sounding tube style plugin anywhere at any price...
thanks to Voxengo for keeping it real, and making it FREE!!!

I use Voxengo products every day and am still blown away by the quality of the EQ/filtering effects. GlissEQ and Redunoise are simply unique and can work wonders with poor source material.
The most recent purchase has been the Analogflux Suite. This really can impart a beautiful feel to a track. TapeBus is the best tape emulation I've heard yet.
You could pay thousands to get a plugin pack which isn't as good as Aleksey's plugs - they've certainly helped my studio out financially!
If you're not sure about buying a Voxengo product then download the demo and spend some time using it on your own mixes. I can't imagine how anyone could fail to be impressed.

The difference in some cases has been amazing -- at audibly equivalent levels, the combination of Polysquasher and Elephant beats any other combination I've ever used. Cymbals sizzle and have real decay. This is by far the most "musical" set of music production tools I've used. In fact, the sound is so incredible I am going back and re-mastering a number of older projects -- all of our projects deserve this treatment.

After purchasing your mixing and mastering tools, and others. My product has improved significantly. I was having trouble getting airplay before because of sonic reasons. As stated in previous correspondence if has been a financial hardship but the rewards are starting to pay off, perhaps because I own them I have a little more pride in my work. After a couple more purchases I will be using Voxengo exclusively.
I love all my Voxengo plugins. My mastering chain is basically Crunchessor->CurveEQ->Elephant and the results are great. Crunchessor also gets a lot of use when tracking since it can give a wide range of colors to my tracks.
I will definitely get some more stuff from Aleksey in the future.

Thanks for this product!
Delay and Chorus are just the best I've ever used!

I'd heard nothing but good things about Voxengo plugins, but had never tried them for myself, thinking "eh, they're just more audio plugins, I've got a folder full of them". Man, was I wrong. I first tried Pristine Space, and then purchased the Light version when it was released, as it was perfect for my needs. I was immediately impressed with the detailed tweakability, which allowed me to perfectly customize reverb impulses. While I was on the site, I also downloaded the Voxformer demo. I tried it out on the lead vocals of a track that I'd recorded and mixed a couple of weeks earlier, and THE VERY FIRST PRESET I pulled up sounded ten times better than the EQ and compression I'd spent hours tweaking on the original mix (and I'm talking about well-known, high quality plugins). Right of the bat I was getting smooth, airy vocal tones that I'd never been able to acheive before. Three or four minutes of tweaking and I was sold. Voxformer is quite simply the best plugin for vocals I've ever heard. Like a great piece of analog hardware, it's hard to make it sound bad. Anywhere I twisted the knobs sounded fantastic. I'm no expert engineer, but I've been a working musician for nearly twenty years, and this plugin delivers precisely what I need: great sound without a lot of hassle (and without breaking my wallet). I'll definitely be a return customer. The hard part will be deciding what to get next! Thanks for the fantastic sound.

I recently purchased LampThruster. I am using it on final mixes and it is the missing link in my chain. You display a wonderful sense of musicality in all your creations. They are by far the most musical tools I've found. I actually think of them as instruments. LampThruster gives me the warm yet distinct sound I've been searching for for years. The best way I can describe what it does is this: it allows you to hear the space between the notes. Sounds become distinct because of the space that separates them from other sounds. LampThruster allows me to ehnance the sound characteristics of various instruments so that they become very sonically distinct without being brittle. The controls are very usable. You can really crank them without destroying the sound. The EQ section is superb when coupled with the "Floor" and "Thruster" controls. Thank you for superb, musical products. I own 4 of your VST plugins: they are all high quality and very musical.
