I try to avoid and have working at the same times, 2 Reason senses (Audition and Vision).
But when my Audition is a bit lost, Vision comes in and SPAN Plus is always laying at the back of my session.
It helps me to work faster and get back on tracks quicker.
When my students ask me a good Analyzer I say : SPAN.
This last week, I upgraded one of my computers from Windows XP to Win7. I did this by completely reformatting my partition, and installing everything from scratch.
When it came time to install and authorize all my Voxengo plugs, I was delighted to find something no regular user encounters on a day to day basis - that there is a means to authorize all my licensed Voxengos in a single action. That is some very clever and very considerate programming, and greatly appreciated by someone faced with the tedious task of installing and authorizing dozens of programs and plugins.
Voxengo plugins are an integral part of my working process now, and just about everything I turn out has been touched in one way or another by your work. Thanks very much for the great sound, and the little touches that are the product of great programming.
I use TEOTE a lot. I love the way it can add this last polish on the whole mix. I tend to go for just a few bands..results are great. It won’t mix for you but when you push into it and you know what you’re doing then it delivers great results. It is also on my drum bus and vocal bus. It gives me this feeling of stuff fitting right in the mix.
I love GlissEq to boost the roots notes in dynamic way. It really helps to make elements stand out of the mix.
Voxengo makes powerful and very effective compressors I use Marquis Compressor and Elephant Limiter and the results are so powerful! They grab the sound and can squash it if needed without destroying it. They respect the source. Not something a lot of software compressors do.
Powershaper is becoming one of my favourite saturation and overdrive units. It sounds very organic.
Using a lot of Voxengo plugins makes you feel like working with tools created to be effective, great sounding and innovative in at least few aspects. They have they own unique sound and always deliver top results. After a while you learn to trust them and push the parameters to shape the sound you have in your head.
