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!!!
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.
LF Max Punch is great for bass and drums when I want an extra power, a plugin to take into account in genres such as Hip Hop, but equally useful in some rock productions.
I love using harmonic distortion in a creative way and to give presence to essential elements of the mix, and VariSaturator is one of my favorites because of its great variety of possibility and at the same time easy to use" Always in my mixes.
