Slick GUI, variety of settings, great sound, competitive price. I honestly couldn't have asked for more. Here's a quick review.
- What I like:
All Voxengo plugins have signature GUI which is very convenient and modern-looking, plus it allows me to quickly and easily find and adjust settings on different Voxengo plugins without the need to readapt to another GUI. I consider it a huge advantage over many other developers who simply copy hardware interface with rust and screws and all, without adapting it to "modern world".
Sound-wise it's also great and flexible, nothing to add here.
- What I'd add to this plugin:
Visual representation of tape EQs which are available in this plugin. It can be like a floating window when you scroll between impulse modes, just to get a basic idea of what different modes do (I know it's displayed in the manual, but it would still be a nice addition, I think).
I just bought this plugin, and have to say it's absolutely brilliant!
For years now, I have been using some plugins that came with my DAW, which I had become accustomed to. I have always struggled to get my mixes to sound sufficiently loud without making them sound squashed.
As soon as I tried Elephant for the first time, I could hear the difference that this plugin could make to my work. Elephant is truly amazing - it is incredibly transparent, and the metering and graphing options come in very handy too.
Thanks so much for such a great product! I'd recommend Voxengo Elephant to anyone who needs super high quality buss compression.
My work involves seeing sound as well as hearing sound: spectrum analyzers allow me to work with utter confidence. Being able to tune the parameters of visual, real-time display along the various frequency areas is key to my mixing and mastering work. Voxengo SPAN Plus has the greatest FFT control of any analyzer in my kit - enormously helpful. For spline work, CurveEQ is a constant fascination while being the key ingredient in many situations.
