Voxengo Elephant - User Reviews
Just a quick note to say how outstanding the Elephant 3 limiter is! Since I began using this highly capable tool, it has replaced my much more expensive "L" series limiters. Further more, I conducted my own tests between Elephant 3, and the two other main limiters I had been using.
To my ears, Elephant 3 is more transparent and more natural sounding, hands down. Excellent plug-in. Highly Recommended! Thanks very much to Aleksey and all at Voxengo!
Voxengo's plugins have always had a fabulous transparent sound which has become part of the Calamity Studio work process. Gliss is our 'got to' channel EQ, Soniformer and Elephant are part of our regular mastering chain.
But now that Aleksey is leading the way by providing x64 supported versions of all his new plugs we will be purchasing every new release from now on.
I mainly use Marquis and Pristine Space light. For me Marquis is one of the best comps out there since it covers a lot of different compressor types and it's very tweakable. Pristine Space has all I want in a convolution plug. I also have some of the more expensive stuff in my plugin folder but Voxengo holds its ground and gets used in every mix I do.
I must say I really like this approach to plugins. Feature rich, plain but useful GUI's and some unique ideas. Not to forget the fair prices.
Keep up the good work!
I wanted to take a minute to tell you how impressed I am with the Elephant 3. I am now working at Masterdisk in NYC and using the Elephant 3 to master projects almost everyday. As an Elephant user from ver 1, it's always been a great product, but with this latest release you have taken it to a new level of audio excellence!
I was looking for a high-quality, transparent mastering plugin which would give me clean, tight control of my music and podcast recordings.
Elephant gave me all the control and punch I wanted, combined with transparency and clarity. Thanks Aleksey for your work on version 3, Elephant's a beautiful product at a very attractive price.
What's there to say?
The Elephant is the only limiter I know that can take the Moderus remix of the GHIII stems of Death Magnetic and make it as loud as Rubin's/Jensen's version....without the clipping!!
Seriously, one of the nicest guys with the best plugins anywhere. Wish he lived nearby so i could peer over his shoulder while he codes these masterpieces...
As a professional masteringstudio i'm looking all the time for the best limiter.
After comparing the Elephant 3 seriously with all the State-of-the Art-Limiters on the marked i use now the Elephant 3 on nearly all of my masterings.
The El-Uni-Algo ist fantastic;
more punch, less distortion, less side-effects & less harshness than all the "big names"!
