Voxengo Crunchessor - User Reviews
I cannot believe that Warmifier gives BBE Sonic Maximizer a run for the money. I was fixated on BBE, but after using Warmifier, there is so much more control that the BBE SM doesn't have: current, voltage tube emulation as well as tube makes/types, LE and HE filter adjustments as well as LE And HE EQ'ing. Just disgusting! (Don't fret: that's a good disgusting LOL)
Sometimes I have to admit it: I get confused to using Lampthruster and Warmifer, but Warmifer is the unexpected lovechild of Voxengo TubeAmp & Voxengo Sonic Finalizer in my eyes! I assume that Warmifer is better for the mastering phase when used with Marq. Compressor, Soniformer and Elephant.....as Lampthruster is good for colorizing tracks in congregation with Voxengo Crunchessor, Voxengo GlissEQ, and Elephant, correct?
Well, enough of my raving. I'm going back to using this bad boy. Using Warmifier with AFChorus and Crysonic's Spectra'PE 32-bit limiter is a deadly combo, yo.
Thank you again for your products. With every new project I find new ways to get the sounds I want with your tools. Voxengo VSTs are truly part of my workhorse arsenal.
The latest example is LFMax and LFPunch. At first I thought they were nice enough to buy, but I didn't use them much until recently. In fact, I had almost considered giving them up. But recently I sat down with the tools to really see what they're made of -- and that's when I came to really discover their potential in ALL my mixes!
With a clever combination of Crunchessor for sidechaining, LFMax, and LFPunch for all tracks with low-frequency content, my tracks sound ten times better. I had always thought 'low end will always be sloppy, there's no way to make it sound good'. I was wrong!
I was always trying to repair slop in the midrange and unbalanced highs with simple EQ, but with LFMax, LFPunch, and Crunchessor, I'm able to tame the low-end and get the sort of solid, even response I've wanted in a wide range of listening conditions -- headphones, studio monitors, and consumer systems with a wide array of subwoofer quality, tone, and loudness "features".
We find our Voxengo plug-ins to be valuable additions to our collection. They sound fantastic, use very little CPU power and cost next to nothing.
They hold there own next to many of our much more expensive (and 'famous') plugs.
Thanks guys! Keep up the good work!
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.
