The Voxengo Suite has absolutely made music production and mixing more fun, efficient and creative.  The workflow and visualization of PrimeEQ has made it my go-to Parametric EQ and the sound is pristine.  Crunchessor, Marquis compressor and Deft Compressor are some of the smoothest and most flexible software compressors.  They all have such a wide "sweet spot" and it is hard to make them sound bad, allowing you to focus on creative decisions.  On the mixbus, polysquasher and soniformer are the only compressors I have tried that consistently provide truly transparent compression regardless of the material, while CurveEQ can effortlessly shape a full mix with complete transparency.  Finally Elephant delivers energy, smoothness and loudness like no other limiter, beating out everything else in my toolkit.  Its tweakability makes it suitable for any material.  The entire Voxengo suite of plugins really have something special going on.  No hype, just top level DSP, top level design and top level sound.

Might be the free (and even among the paid!) M/S utility tool out there.  You can quickly correct your mix in an essential way by adjusting mid (sum) and side (difference) volume or just use it on individual tracks and pan the mid and sides anywhere in the stereo field for sound design.  The meters are incredible helpful as well.  This is a must-have for every mixing engineer unless already having something similar (which will be hard to find).

Feature wish: The correlometer is great for seeing the balance between mid and side, but in some situations it could be better if you additionally got individual peak volume meters for both, the mid and side.  If there will even be an update to MSED, it would be great if Voxengo could consider this.

Would it make an even more outstanding plugin than it already is.

Thank you very much for that helpful mixing tool.

Voxengo GlissEQ is a SEVERELY underrated and unsung plugin.  The music I make (and those of others I record) is often heavy on acoustic guitar and I find it one of the more challenging sound sources to EQ (especially on less than ideal spaces).  GlissEQ very quickly and easily dealt with those problems for me.

The fastest EQ plugins to get a good sound out of, in my experience, are usually the Neve or API emulations, with stepped frequencies (I use RRS plugins).  I may be speaking too soon but GlissEQ can be just as fast as those plugins, more versatile, and definitely can sound more natural.  Want to get some warmth?  Boost the low end where you're hearing the need for it, and it won't get boomy on you.  Dynamic EQ isn't just for notching resonances, and GlissEQ is one of the best.  The sounds you can get out of it are simply beautiful and very impressive.  I love it.

Even knowing the Brazilian reality in which it is very difficult to buy equipment and plugins because of the high dollar and the devaluation of our currency..I came back here to say how grateful I am to the voxengo family, it all started with the E bus Limiter and after some time waiting I managed to buy the Elephant!  Dear friends, how worth it!  It is unique and simple to use, my customers love it when I use it!  I've tested many plugins and what's on the market today and I haven't seen any doing what this good friend does!  Thank you voxengo for the great help with my work!  Big hug

I was having a difficult time finding a decent-sounding reverb plug-in to use on the professional orchestral recordings that I do.  There are plenty of plug-ins out there that will go up to 96kHz/24bit, but I record at 192kHz/24bit and reverb plug-ins that work at that resolution are both rare and expensive.  I've been down-sampling to 96/24 to use a reverb plug-in that I like for mixing, but I would rather work in the native resolution of 192/24 that I record at to keep the fidelity as high as possible.  I have other Voxengo products that I use on a regular basis (Elephant, SPAN Plus, PrimeEQ, Warmifier) but I never thought to try any of the Voxengo reverbs.  I purchased OldSkoolVerb Plus and I used it on an orchestral recording gig I had last month.  I was truly blown away at how smooth and natural-sounding the tails were that I was getting just starting with the presets.  The description for OldSkoolVerb Plus warns about possible 'metallic' sounds using the spatialization mode.  I didn't find any artifacting at all in my use.  And the fact that Voxengo plug-ins are sample-rate independent meant I didn't have to worry about any compatibility issues either.  OldSkoolVerb Plus is my new go-to for a world-class sounding reverb.

As a Mixing and Mastering engineer, and also as a University professor, I have been testing different spectral analysis plugins for years.  Without a doubt, Voxengo Span Plus has all the features that an audio engineer requires when performing a detailed analysis of any type of signal.  Its design is very intuitive, and totally versatile.

As usual, Voxengo has been carefully behind every detail in the design of Span Plus.

I think Span Plus is my best partner when it comes to mixing or mastering!

I just wanna testify, the way the Crunchessor reacts to dynamics and adds saturation depending on how much compression is going on helped me win the Home Studio Simplified's July 2022 Mix Contest.

I just want to sincerely thank you for your work on TEOTE.  I have been mixing with a "spectrum flattening" + post eq workflow on buses and masters for a while, previously using "smart" functions in EQ's.  The possibilities TEOTE offers to my mixing style and the sound quality are incredible.  As far as mixing and mastering goes, this is the most special plugin I have come across.  I have found it to be very useful in sound design as well.  It truly frees you to focus on the creative elements and saves a lot of time, while providing an amazing sound.

Thanks again for your products

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).
