I don't normally stop and thank the architect of some amazing work, who I see also answers the support line but you deserve high praises for what you have accomplished.  In two days you have given me the tools to elevate my music more than I have done in the last 3 years.  I have always hated the sound of limiting, (never found a good one digital or analog) and now with THE HUGE ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM, I am able to hear my way through the process, finding just the right settings to get a pro commercial sound.  Master buss with Sonar X3, UAD Ampex tape emulation, Polysquasher (gentle) The Elephant +3 or so, and final analog gui-ness from a Rupert Neve Portico II.  Your products were the missing link.  Thanks so much!

I have been using Elephant and Soniformer while mastering for YEARS and there isn't a better combo for raising gain and controlling compression/eq without squashing the whole mix.  Sometimes I add in the TransGainer for that extra sizzle and especially to liven up a room mic or a drum bus.  The versatility of the products really shine when you get into the details.  And the fact that I use them sometimes in 20 instances (Elephant makes a great limiter) in Cubase 5 on a PC and never bog my system down and keep low latency.  That is just great programming and the reason I will be back for more!  My songs recorded with your products have been on radio, film and TV, so thanks for supplying such remarkable tools!

I'm sort of new with DAW's, previously I "decided" to go with samplitude, but later found it to restrictive since it can't handle 7.1 surround (or itself without crashing), unless one looses his/her mind and cough's up $3000 for Sequoya.  My choice has fallen on Reaper, which is clearly above everything I've ever likely to come across.  As THE DAW it is capable of doing everything I / you could ever need, especially when combining it with Voxengo's plugins, WOW!, I mean you people are incredible, and I know that because my ears tells me so.  The end result is everything that ever mattered, which is why we're all doomed, but that's another story ;o)

Voxengo Elephant is hands down my favorite limiter.  I own a lot of different limiters, and prior to purchasing Elephant, found myself having to test several per song in an attempt to find the one that did the least damage with its limited features and distinct characteristics.  Eventually I'd find something that worked OK but I never felt as satisfied with the sound as I do with Elephant.  I'm grateful to Aleksey for adding in a lot of important features, features that many others seem content on leaving out, and for giving us the ability to tinker around under the hood for more complex setups.  It can be a little daunting at first trying to understand what everything does, but with a little perseverance, it all begins to make sense and then you truly realize how powerful and flexible this limiter really is.  It excels at remaining transparent even at extreme levels and with a bit of fine tuning, is the best limiter I have in my arsenal for those clients looking for maximum level with as much of the transient clarity intact.  Of course there's a point where it all begins to fall apart, but Elephant has the ability to go farther than the rest.

Thanks for a great product guys, the Elephant is an amazing limiter.  Wins out over many of my other [considerably more expensive] limiters on many projects, retaining transparency, clarity and punch.  It’s intuitive to use, has all the additional controls I need, plus the “graphs” and metering statistics are the icing on the cake.

Thanks again,

We recorded a select group of bands live in the studio as part of the Savannah Stopover Festival.  I recorded them in the live room direct to 1/4" tape with Dolby SR.  The spacial quality was pretty awesome.  I couldn't keep the spacial relationship with L3.  I switched to L2 and the high mids got trashy.  The Sonnox sounded good but the snare kept jumping out and it wasn't the same snare I was hearing on the tape master.  I tried your demo in a last ditch effort to try to convey the feeling of being there.  It did just that.  THANK YOU!

Voxengo Elephant is a limiter in a class of its own.  It's a magnificent tool for shaping the sound.

Friendly greetings Aleksey!

I wanted to thank you directly for Voxengo Elephant.  Every time a new limiter comes out on the market, I test it thoroughly versus Elephant, but ALL contenders to date (over the last four years) have been crushed at Elephant's massive feet.  Despite compelling marketing copy, those competitors simply can't handle the extreme dynamics and transients I throw at Elephant, which rides the peaks a lot more transparently.  The TRANS TIME knob is magic — if I hear unwanted distortion in a saturated track rich with ambience, I simply turn it up and the ugliness is gone.  I can retain a good balance between punch and clarity, something which is unintuitively difficult in "other limiters".

You should know that I used Elephant on my album that won the Spectrasonics-Bob Moog Foundation's OMG-1 Grand Prize: From phat breakbeats to eloquent arpeggiators, Elephant is versatile and able to treat it all.  Elephant's high-quality at low-latency makes it possible to use in a "realtime mastering chain", which is essential to my workflow and makes it easy to hear the near-final result instantly.  Plus, auto-oversampling works like a charm.

What's more, EVERYONE out there should know how mature and stable Elephant is.  It's almost a decade old, wow!  Long ago, I grew irritated with lesser limiters that didn't keep backward compatibility modes in mind, since that inconsistency wastes time.  But I'm glad that although Elephant continues to be in active development, it has really settled into a beautiful place in my creation process.

On top of all this, Elephant's price continues to provide the best bang-for-buck.  What incredible value for a truly versatile tool!

Keep being creative — you've truly made it easier for musicians like me to make our music shine.

Hi! just droping by to say that the Elephant is a truly amazing limiter, I use the Slate FG mastering plugin for the clipping capabilities, but always put the Elephant after it for a truly finished, clean and loud master.  I've been using it for years, and I'm still re-discovering! great job!!!

I am using quite a few of your plugins as bus masters for film & TV sound post.  Elephant after Polysquasher is fantastic to envelope the final mix and peak limiter for broadcast specs.  Voxformer is an excellent way to control and punch vocals without sounding over processed.  Soniformer is my preferred plugin for music pre mix stems but until recently, I wasn't quite happy with a compressor for FX stem control, but the new Drumformer is perfect for this.

HarmoniEQ and GlissEQ are both really useful to enhance without fatigue and also interesting EQs to use on denoised material.  Great plugins and so reasonable priced.  They work perfectly in my Fairlight host.
