Voxengo Voxformer - User Reviews
I was playing with a current vocal track and trying to get it to sit "just right" in the mix. I had several different pug-ins running on the track: De-Esser, Compressor, EQ, and PSP Vintage Warmer. Still... I was not happy with the way it sat in the mix.
I had heard a lot of great things about Voxformer in Sonar forums as well as the overall quality of other Voxengo stuff. Being an AnalogFlux Suite owner, I figured it would not hurt to install the DEMO of VoxFormer.
I choose the "In Your Face Vocal" preset and was completely impressed. I purchased the plug-in right there on the spot. The quality for the cost is amazing. I tweaked the Compressor and EQ settings and had a FANTASTIC sounding vocal track in minutes.
i came across voxengo plugins a while ago, and gave them a try. i have to say, these are some great plugins. i am currently using the free Stereo Touch and free SPAN plugins as well as the (very reasonably priced) PHA-979 plugin, i am interested in the Voxformer,Redunoise, and GlissEQ plugins.
i have talked with Aleksey Vaneev a few times,and he is a really nice guy. he knows what he is doing, and is very helpful.
+1 for Voxengo's amazing VST Plugins!
As a very busy recording vocalist, I have the lucky ability to personally adjust my mix in the studio before handing it all over to the engineer. I have found that I literally depend upon Voxformer for all my sessions these days, and simply wouldn't feel confident in my final mixes without it. The professional quality and precise results I'm after are superb.
*Now, if I could just get Voxengo to add a nice simple little chorus module for it I would be in heaven!
There's not much to say about the products. They're just fantastic.
Can't really remember how I mastered in my pre Elephant days.
Just bought the convolution suite and looking forward to spending some quality time with it.
A word on Elephant. I use quite an array of plug-in processors and effects(within my DAW) in my work. Some are very expensive and do an incredibly professional job (provided you take the time to learn how to use them). Heres one of them with a slight exception.
Elephant is an excellent track limiter. Especially for rhythm and drum tracks. Acceptional control with a silky, yet somewhat nuetral sound. Its user friendly with a simple, but effective interface.
The exception.........its not one of the more expensive products. The results just sound like it.
I have been very pleased in using several of the Voxengo processors in different professional projects. After learning what they do well ( and they do alot ), sound sculpting becomes that much easier.
Also...my feelings tell me that this company isn't going to rest on its laurels and there are further treats to come.
I did want to mention that I find your products to work very, very well. I post a number of docu-drama shows as well as some music. I am finding myself forgoing my hardware based plugs and using your Voxformer, and Soniformer in those same slots. I had a producer comment a couple of weeks ago, during a mix of his show; he asked how I was able to get the on camera dialog to be so clear in the midst of a great number of fx and music cues. I pointed out the before and after using your Voxformer plug as an insert on the dialog channels. He was very impressed with the difference. This was one of those shows where the location audio guy had been let go after shooting for several days and I had to still make the dialog work.
Anyway, thanks for making these plugs available.
