Voxengo Elephant is a limiter in a class of its own. It's a magnificent tool for shaping the sound.
I bought CurveEQ and Elephant last week and put them to the test over the weekend. I just want to say that I'm absolutely blown away, especially with Elephant. The Curve EQ has answered all my prayers - I've been struggling with FreeFilter for about 2 years and find it so limited and restricted, your interface is not only enjoyable to use but intuitive and highly workable, for me just seeing average DB against frequency is like unlocking all the secrets of the big mastering houses - most of our stuff goes on to vinyl so getting the 20-150Hz range right is vital. The Elephant is just HUGE compared to Waves L2 (which to me sounds dull in comparison), Elephant lifts the mix right up, kick drums don't get squashed and main leads and bass are just sooo loud without pumping. 3db preset is just the best, this will be our new secret weapon in making mixes sound even bigger & better. I just want to say a big thanks for writing the above magic tools, you obviously love programming and understanding sound which has given you a great ability to make killer plugins. I will definitely be commenting on forums and passing on recommendations to others. Wishing you all the success in the future ;) Best regards.

It's pretty simple why Voxengo plugins are so good - Alexsey has a better ear compared to other developers.
His plugins sound so 'musical'. I've used many other plugins that technically perform their designed function, yet somehow just don't sound good.
I now have a whole set of expensive plugins that are just taking up drive space. They simply don't sound as good as thier Voxengo counterparts.
